About the artists:

British-born freelance photographer and journalist Roger Stephenson moved to Birmingham in 2002. Booking performers for the legendary juke joint Gip’s Place from 2004-2012 inspired Roger to photograph musicians. The Brooklyn Museum included his images in the touring exhibition, Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present in 2009 and the Birmingham Museum of Art hosted the exhibition in 2011. His passion for photographing live music and other subjects is showcased in a body of work spanning decades and was recently featured in the Shelby County Arts Council’s 2021 Adult Juried Art Exhibit.

Fiber-artist Leanna Leithauser-Lesley fuses her love of jazz and blues with a contemporary spin on traditional needlepoint. After moving to Birmingham in 1993, she created her first needlepoint portrait in 1998. Her current portraits of jazz musicians grew out of a collaboration with the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame for a 2007 exhibition at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Leanna continues to exhibit throughout the South, including the 43rd Montgomery Art Guild Exhibition at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts where earned the 2019 Landmark Award and Shelby County Arts Council’s 2021 Adult Juried Art Exhibit.

Tim Montana has tapped a new vein of Southern Rock. Sometimes best known for his collaborations with ZZ Top’s legendary Billy F. Gibbons with whom Montana has formed his longest and most prosperous relationship. The pair has written, recorded and performed together countless times, co-writing songs like “Weed and Whiskey,” “Rust and Red” and “Fifty Fifty.” In 2013, the hirsute rockers penned “This Beard Came Here to Party,” which became the theme song of the Boston Red Sox as they fought to a World Series championship, and later Music City’s NHL franchise the Nashville Predators. “Raised in the wilds near Butte, Montana, Tim Montana (yes, it’s his real name), entered the world as an off-the-grid thrill-seeker. He and his buddies would take to the nearby mountains to fish, hunt and raise hell as an escape from their rustic home lives — Montana grew up without electricity. Soon, however, he sought out a different high: the kind that only comes from performing live music. Eager to perfect the guitar playing he began when he was just 6 years old, he moved to Los Angeles to put his time in studying his craft. Eventually, he ended up in Nashville, where he formed his band the Shrednecks and established himself as a thrilling live performer. He’s a gregarious personality and struck up friendships with such diverse figures as Kid Rock and the Navy SEAL who led the raid to take down Osama bin Laden, Rob O’Neill. In Kid Rock, Montana found a kindred rebel spirit and began one of his most prolific creative periods, opening for the rap-rock icon and co-writing two charting singles for Rock’s Sweet Southern Sugar album: the Top 10 country hit “Tennessee Mountain Top” and the Number 16 rock anthem “Greatest Show on Earth.” “We have a lot in common,” he says of his relationship with Rock. “The way we write songs is very similar, our performance style is full throttle and we instantly hit it off.” Come see Tim and the band in the up close and personal  in the SCAC Black Box Theater!
