Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts – Heavy Metal

Provided Art Direction, Design, and overall product branding items—social media banners, tee shirt art, etc.—for Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts, “Heavy Metal”. It was released in 2016 on Vinyl, CD, and digital— available everywhere fine music is sold. Miles and I have worked on many recordings together since 2004. This is the first time I suggested a photo shoot of the band for the cover to emulate Bruce Springsteen’s “Born To Run” cover. One reason being that this is the longest running, road-tested lineup Miles has put together to record and perform as a unit— which I felt should be identified and stitched together by rock’s with Springsteen’s youthful, early 70s work.

Photography for the record was provided by Nels Akerlund.
