K. Flay – an edgy, lively performace

Salt Lake City, UT – May 6, 2018 – As a music and tour photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah, I’ve seen a lot of really cool performances.  K. Flay however, has been on my bucket list for quite some time.

They took the stage right at 9:15 as scheduled to a sold out crowd at The Complex.  Kristine, who sprung into the music world accidentally in the bay area while attending college at Stanford, is a lyrical genius.  She’s real, and her lyrics aren’t afraid to talk about the darkness this life can bring along with the bright spots along the way.  She doesn’t sugar coat her view of the world and it’s so refreshing.

The bands quick beats are electric, mixing a bit of hip hop with rock and pop.   She has a very unique voice that is edgy as hell, yet beautiful.  And did I mention she can rhyme with the best?

One thing I loved about the show was the stage and lights.  It’s a crowd pleaser and it’s easy to love her performance.  She connects with the crowd and has amazing stage presence.  She typcially dresses all in black with killer boots to, well, boot.  She owns the stage.  Back and forth, hair whips, jumping and rocking out!  She also shows emotion with her music falling to her knees at the front of the stage during more dramatic moments giving the front row a glimpse into the raw expressions on her face.

A few of my favorite songs on the set list were “High Enough“, and “Dreamers“.  I’ve linked them to Spotify for your listening pleasure.

All in all, I was impressed and frankly, can’t wait to see her live again.

Introducing Nightly: Up and coming band plays The Tabernacle for first time

Written By: Bianca Theodore

Atlanta, January 27, 2018 – Meet Nightly- the two-person ensemble that is boy band meets hipster heartthrob meets garage band.
Somehow, the upcoming duo makes that chaotic genre blend as melodic as their smooth alternative pop tunes. Their catchy choruses and soft guitar riffs are infectious, and had the sold out crowd at The Tabernacle singing along in no time Friday night.
As Nashville natives, Nightly was a long way from home. But by the end of their opening set, Atlanta had welcomed them with open arms.
Their simple, stripped back set instantly created an intimate atmosphere in the three-tiered venue. Every seat was full and standing room was nonexistent, but Nightly made a crowd 2500 deep feel like a coffee shop’s open mic night.
As cousins who grew up writing songs together, lead singer Jonathan Capeci and guitarist Joey Beretta have perfected creating that organic feel. Nightly is no plastic boy band made of Ken dolls; they’re real, with a history and a story to tell that feels relatable.
Their newest EP, Honest , feels familiar in the best sense: like your favorite pair of comfy jeans. Nightly actually translates to text lingo for “Night, love you”, so fittingly, romance is the common thread to the band’s songs. Their direct, simple lyrics feel like a love lost or new crush we all know well.
So relatable, that their SoundCloud hit “XO”, “Honest”, and “No Vacancy” quickly became crowd favorites. By the end of their performance, Nightly had everyone swaying with their hands high and phone lights in the air.
Tonight may have been Atlanta’s first introduction to Nightly, but it is clear they made quite the impression.
Be sure to catch them in your city next:
