Double-header singer-songwriters, David Gray and Amos Lee performed at the Santa Barbara Bowl. During their tour, they took turns headlining, and at the Bowl, Amos went first. An early starting July show, Mr. Lee was in direct sunlight, which worked well against the charcoal black background of the stage. I got to shoot the first three songs of each from an uncrowded photo pit, but right after Lee's performance, I snuck in a backstage shot of him hanging out with some of the users. Mr. Gray began on the piano, then grabbed the mic stand walked out to the edge of the stage with it, right in the middle of the second song.
Opening the show were three talented sisters called, Joseph (from Joseph, OR).
