Carrie Underwood, Flogging Molly, The Head and The Heart, Coheed & Cambria, Blaqk Audio, Sum 41, Grace Potter, NOFX, Nada Surf, Motion City Soundtrack, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, Dashboard Confessional, Phantogram, and Penatonix would probably be the most unexpected and random festival line up of 2016. For me it was just a few of the amazing concerts I got to photograph this year. A quarter of them were shows I have been wanting to cross off my bucket list, some were bands I thought would never tour again but made a huge comeback in 2016. A few called it quits playing their final headlining shows of their careers after these show, but let’s just hope that was a ploy to sell more tickets and that they will be back one day. A handful of different shows, were a privilege to shoot for the second and even third time. There were many shows I missed out on and wish I could have photographed in 2016 but looking back I’m super happy with who I got to photograph in 2016. While I make my list of shows I want to photograph in 2017 it was fun to look back on the show that came through Seattle and share their music with everyone.
