Tony Hammons and I were back at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center on Saturday 15 September 2018 to shoot video for Kristin Chambers’ EP release. It was my first time seeing a show in the Abbey’s downstairs stage. Kristin Chambers’ voice really takes advantage of that expansive upstairs area, but I think I preferred hearing her at the downstairs venue. It’s a little darker and intimate, well suited for her songs and banter.
And that there is why I’ll never be a music writer. I wanted to say that the venue is well suited for Kristin Chambers’ mix of soulful, jazzy songs. But I worry about throwing around genre labels. There’s a pretty good chance I’ll get them wrong. I do know, though, that her powerful voice fills a room and will have you on your feet dancing in no time. (I think she should play Vito’s Lounge on First Hill.)
We were there to shoot video, but I snapped a few photos here and there. Have a look at the slideshow and then go catch some local music.
