My band and I had an excellent summer tour supporting my new record “We Dissolve” that went something like this :
- Joe’s Pub NYC – Tuesday June 6
- Biografilm Park, Bologna, Italy – Friday June 9
- The Borderline, London, UK –
- The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh, UK –
- The Soho House, Berlin, Germany – Thursday June 22
- Old Masters Opening Party @ 131, Berlin, Germany – FridayJune 30
- Triennale Teatro dell’Arte T R I P Festival, Milan, Italy – TuesdayJuly 12
- Festival Delle Colline, Carmignano, Italy – Wednesday July 13
- Gent Jazz Festival, Gent, Belgium –
I’m always curious to see how live shots come out at the various places we play.
We tend to book a pretty full spectrum of performance venues. Sometimes there are no great shots because the venue just isn’t really set up for it, as in the case of Joe’s Pub, The Soho House and the private party we played in Berlin. Other venues have everything going for them, as in the case of Borderline in London. It’s a small venue so the photographers can get right up on stage and the lights are strong with great colors.
Some venues are out of control fantastic and photogenic for different reasons, the clear example being the festival in Rocco di Carmignano, where we performed with a backdrop of the Tuscan Hills glittering with the city lights from Prato and Florence(shown above during the day). Every show is a unique experience, even if we have played the exact venue in the past. The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh felt like a whole new space to me. There have been renovations to the venue and we had a new line up in the band. There was also a healthy dose of Twin Peaks mania that had not been there before but was a lot of fun to be around.
Here is a selection of live shots I am fond of from the tour. A big thank you to all the photographers that took shots at the shows and posted online.
I love gathering my favorites together to share as it’s wonderful for me too to relive the beautiful moments that often fly by and really take in the scope of the tour through the images that were captured.
