And I see your face in every crowd, Taylor Nation.
I’ve been following The Agency for… ever now. The band has changed members in the last years but at the core remains a group of individuals with charisma and personality that show both on and off stage. Although the Blonde WIth The Sparkly Guitar has added a ton of production for the RED Tour, we still get those little band moments.
You know them, you love them but in case you’re just joining in they are: Matt Billingslea on drums, David Cook on keyboards, Caitlin Evanson on fiddle or guitar, Amos J. Heller on bass, Mike Meadows on guitar/mandolin/banjo, Grant Mickelson on guitar and Paul Sidoti on guitar.
Here’s a compilation of the best pictures I have from The Agency.
Things to look out for when the Agency is playing: Amos all the time, Caitlin’s dramatic intro for IKYWT, Grant’s amazing guitar skills, David and Amos having an awkward staring contest during Mean, count how many instruments Mike Meadows can play, Amos during Stay Stay Stay, David and Mike’s instrumental interlude leading to Treacherous, Paul Sidoti’s guitar duel with Taylor, the faces of Cait and Amos during the Mean speech… there’s plenty. I’m sure you probably know a few that I don’t.
