Lend Me Your Ear is a collaboration between music photographer Andrew Cotterill and illustrator Ben Tallon. A series of iconic photographs with an illustrative twist, celebrating the individuals and bands that never attempted to hide the true essence of their character from their musical output and the public arena.

This uncompromising, visual love letter to the musicians who inspired and continue to inspire Cotterill and Tallon spanning several decades is a body of work highlighting the important lesson taught to us by people who achieved something and inspired many, not in spite of who they were, but because they dared to use that precious individuality to its fullest. Cotterill and Tallon, growing up in the south and north of England meet in the middle of two very different generations to create a shared love of what made music so fucking sexy in the first place and has been mislaid in today's mainstream culture.
