Coastal Cities are an Indie Pop band from Buckinghamshire, U.K. Declan here writes many of the songs, fronts the band, sings and plays lead guitar. Declan is also my nephew – I was fortunate enough to attend and photograph one of their gigs at the Cookie Jar, a venue in Leicester, U.K.

In addition to his musical attributes, Declan (and other members of the band) is an accomplished model; he has featured in major campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry eyewear, and the Alexander McQueen 2014 collection completed within the last year alone.
