Laurel Brauns And Her Band the Sweet Harlots

Here are some images from a shoot I did last Saturday for a Bend, Oregon band called the Sweet Harlots.  We had a lot of fun conceptualizing on a look they could use for promotion and even though it was fairly cold out, the energy was flowing.  If your in Bend this January the 28th come check them out at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in the Father Luke’s room from 7 – 10 p.m.  Hey, it’s free!

Here’s what Chris Dahlen of Pitchforkmedia.com and Paste Magazine had to say about the Sweet Harlots most recent album, “Laurel Brauns can do the siren singer-songwriter thing, casting her sterling voice into songs about wide skies and maze-like hearts. She brings to bear all of her Celtic and indie influences on her haunting new album where cellos and dark finger-picked acoustic guitar all but surround you with the ghosts of the by-gone characters the songs speak of.”
