Photographer Kirsey Sutton caught hip hop artist Sol (AKA “Seattle’s Prince) at the Showbox in April, 2016. Keeping the evening’s bill local, Sol had Brothers from Another and Otieno Terry open his show. You might remember that Otieno Terry won 2014’s EMP Soundoff! competition. Here they all are during the Headspace Tour, which got its vibe from Sol’s Headspace Traveler, an album Sol said, was “. . . the result of me diving deep into my mind in order to write what I needed to write on the most personal, fundamental level. . .”
Sad news from the Sol camp: family in Haiti, as well as their community, suffered big losses in Hurricane Matthew. Sol has a Haiti relief benefit show for the country at Neumos on November 17th, 2016.
