Charlotte Martin is one of my top 3 favorite musicians of all time.
I discovered her on my 21st birthday (along with Regina Spektor—it was a good year for music), and I’ve been following her work ever since. This woman’s music got me though a lot of shit—the aftermath of a suicide attempt, as an example. Her song “Redeemed” is the official theme song for Live Through This, appropriately enough. There’s a magical kind of serendipity and dumb luck in that—in being able to team up with one of your heroes for a greater purpose—that I just don’t have the right words for yet. It’s possible I might never.
But now, in 2017, Char’s decided she’s done touring. She’s got a new road to pave. So, I’m hitting every single one of her east coast shows, and I’m taking my camera with me. Here are some shots from last night’s show at the Highline Ballroom in New York City.
