Live Shots from “We Dissolve Tour” June 2017

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 – 
Soundcheck at the fabulous stage in Carmignano for Festival delle Colline (Festival on the Hill)


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.

    My dear Chrysta, you made a mistake about the day of the Gent gig, it was saturday the 15th of july!
    I am pretty sure of it! 😉

  8. Each time I check on this and see more seductive, sensual photos of you the more I go weak at the knees and my heart skips a beat ! I do not know how long it will keep beating until I hear you sing live again and you can mesmorise me into being your servant of songs and your seductive stage performance. When are you coming to Scotland again and tour dates ?
    Vinnie from Scotland.

  9. cuando veo los pliegues de tus ropas, reniego de ser humano y no algún pedazo de tela o cuero cubriendo tu cuello, tus pies o tus manos. un tono serio que resalte tu sonrisa.

    Hi Chrysta! It was a pleasure meeting you at Syrie’s for Thanksgiving. I was so glad to have you meet my friends Shelton & Colleen Becton and it was fantastic to capture your singing with him on video. I hope to see you again somewhere and I’ll be happy to be your photographer (and your doctor too if you ever need one! lol!). Let me know when you return to NY for a performance. You are a wonderful singer (and a very special person!).

  11. Hi. Today, I discovered you as an actress in Twin Peaks. I first noticed your great beauty and then realized that you were a singer. I love your voice and your musical style. I am now one of your fans.
