This past weekend I left the comforts of North Carolina for my first ever out-of-town show, in Washington, D.C. I opened for Amber Dutton, a singer/songwriter in D.C. who’ll be returning the favor and opening for me at The Cave this Thursday. The venue was really cool – a place called BloomBars, which describes itself as a non-profit arts incubator, performance space, art gallery, theater, and center for civic engagement. Contrary to what its moniker would have you believe, it is not actually a bar; rather, just a stage with a nice sound system and a space for an audience to gather for an intimate performance. I had a great time at the show and hanging out in D.C. for the rest of the night afterwards. A good friend of mine from Duke made the trip with me and we were hosted by some very fun friends of hers in Columbia Heights. You can watch a video of my performance here.
I had my second photo shoot with Side Yard Studios a few weekends ago on the coast of North Carolina. Here are a few of my favorite photos, and many thanks to Leigh for having a great vision for the shoot.
