INDIANAPOLIS, IN (October 30, 2021) – Ruston Kelly’s Shape & Destroy Tour with Margaret Glaspy was an extraordinary evening at The Vogue Theatre courtesy of Forty5 Presents on Saturday, October 30, 2021. The events began with an intimate chat and acoustic set by Kelly for VIP devotees including a few heartfelt special requests. Doors opened to the public soon after, and Glaspy took the stage to deliver a beautifully mesmerizing set.

A brief intermission was marked by a palpable anticipation in the house as the headliner’s return to the stage grew near. Fans were overjoyed as the band stepped out from behind the curtain to take their places among the plethora of instruments arranged carefully awaiting their turn to assist in the oncoming aural enchantments. Finally, Ruston Kelly appeared in front of an elated audience ready to please with his incredible skills and charm.

Kelly played a glorious set including many fan favorites as well as some phenomenal new pieces. The night was over way too soon, but Ruston came back out to bless the house with an inspirational encore that would stay with attendees for many moons to come. Hopefully, Forty 5 Presents and The Vogue will have this exceptional gentleman back to the Hoosier State again soon for another dose of hope from the incomparable Ruston Kelly.

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
