Donnie Finnell

Donnie Finnell is a jazz singer from San Diego, CA and he’s been at it for decades. When he finally put out his first album, I had a chance to dig into his old archives of photos and ephemera to find inspiration.

Using snapshots he’d taken when he first drove out west in a beat-up old hatchback with a girlfriend now long gone, we recreated what he may have imagined his debut album to be once he made it to California.
