Kristin Hersh

The Creatives Project - Kristin Hersh

I was lucky to have the privilege of photographing singer-songwriter-artist-author Kristin Hersh this past weekend. In a panel discussion she had earlier in the day at Seattle’s Bumbershoot festival, the conversation veered towards artists and songs that were a certain soundtrack to peoples’ lives … I think specifically, someone on the panel was talking about Paul McCartney. For me, a lot of the soundtrack of my early college days and throughout the nineties was the amazing Throwing Muses. And then, Kristin’s solo work (‘Hips and Makers’ specifically) continued that soundtrack for me. I profusely thank her for the music.
