Claire Michelle at Conor Byrne 28 September 2018

I’m trying out the mobile Squarespace app today. This could get ugly.

I went to shoot photos at Claire Michelle’s Conor Byrne show in Ballard on 28 September 2018. As I was shooting, in addition to enjoying the music, I found myself thinking about musicians’ schedules. I don’t know how they do it.

booking venues

practicing 

organizing tours 

managing the band

marketing

selling merchandise

load ins, load outs

The list goes on. That doesn’t even factor in other jobs and creative ventures. Claire’s a model, shoots films/videos, speaks at events, and runs a YouTube channel. I’m always amazed that musicians and actors are able to put all of that aside for two hours and reconnect with music and lyrics they may have written long ago, in a different time and place, mentally and physically.

Here are some photos from the show.
