Gig Photos: Terra Naomi at Hotel Cafe, Los Angeles

Hey guys!

Sometimes the year starts slowly in terms of finding gigs to photograph, but then it can explode any minute and all of a sudden you have three shows within three days.

That was the case for us last week - with LA based Melissa being the first one to kick off 2018 photo wise.
Followed shortly by Gina and then myself, so stay tuned for a gig photo overload. It's going to be fabulous.

We always get very excited when we get invited to cover shows and the first one, aka the one you're about to learn more about, was definitely the right one for us to kick the year off with.

Alright now, let's do this!


Date: 18th January 2018
Venue: Hotel Cafe, Los Angeles (US)

Headliner: Terra Naomi

Terra Naomi is a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles (US).

Her sound combines Folk, Indie, Pop and the classic singer/songwriter characteristics.

Her song "Say It's Possible" went viral more than 10 years ago and has allowed Terra to build a loyal fanbase.
The song was written in response to Al Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth" and won the musician the inaugural YouTube Award for Best Music Video.
She was also invited to play Live Earth at Wembley Stadium in 2007, where she played alongside Madonna, John Legend, Foo Fighters and many more.

Her new album, which is due this Summer, was recorded with Grammy Award winning producer Tom Schick and multi-instrumentalist Joe Adamik at Wilco's studio in Chicago.

First single "Machine Age" was released just recently and was written about post-election America and the plea for peace.
The song showcases Terra's political and vulnerable writing skills, as well as her ability to come up with hauntingly beautiful melodies and authentic arrangements.
