Front Row Focus | Our Focus


Front Row Focus is an on-line music “magazine”, established and published by Asheville-based award-winning music photographer, David Simchock. 

Considering this, it should come as no surprise that Front Row Focus is “photo centric”, bringing you an up close and personal perspective of live music from the front row - if not closer.  Our colorful, world-class imagery is complemented by equally-colorful, and honest, commentary of each gig that we cover.

We also weave CD/album reviews and artist interviews and news into the mix, bringing our followers a balanced and comprehensive view of their favorite music.

ounded in May 2014, we are still in the early days at Front Row Focus, concentrating our initial efforts in the Asheville, North Carolina vicinity where we are based.  Anyone that knows Asheville also knows that it has quite a vibrant music scene, so we have our work cut out for us here! 

Over time, our aspirations are to expand outside of Western North Carolina, casting our net further afield to cities such as Charlotte (NC), Atlanta (GA), Greenville (SC) and Nashville (TN).  Of course, no gig is too distant, and no stage is too big nor too small for Front Row Focus, so expect to see our presence grow over time to a venue near you.

Thank you for taking an interest in Front Row Focus.  If you have any questions about us, feel free to check out the FAQ section of the website, or just give us a shout via e-mail.  We’d love to hear from you.

See you in the front row!
