Egle Bakaite Breakout Lexington

Live music photography from Breakout in September

Once again Ben James of Breakout curated a great line up of female lead singers for September’s offering at the Lexington. All the performers received a warm welcome from the gathered crowd which had filled the venue.

The evening was kicked off by Jade Hopcroft who impressed with her strong vocals and lyrics, this young performer from Cornwall certainly has a future.

Next up on the bill for the night was Australian outfit Gossling, for me this young performer, real name Helen Groome was the find of the night her. She certainly has a mesmerising quality to her voice I for one will be purchasing her forth coming album Harvest of Gold.

Find out more about Gossling on her website

If  a great reception at Breakout was not enough praise Gossling also was Paul Lester’s Band of of the day in the Guardian.

The next performer to wow the Lexington crowd on the night was the very talented and just as gorgeous Whinnie Williams, I for one love what she is trying to create with her 60’s slight kitsch parisian style, very seaside town meets Cocoo channel. On the night she delivered a strong set of which a managed to get some great shots of.

Why not check out Whinnie Wiliams Excellent Video

The Headliners Velvet Stream topped of the night with a typically energetic performance especially from lead singer Mati, which got the gathered fans rockin the Lexington. Its easy to see why this band had a good viral success with there brilliant single Bitch and have been delighting festival crowds all summer, why not  check out there video here.

For me shooting bands such Velvet Stream is a real treat as they give you such excellent moments to capture.

I hope you look the below images which is a selection captured o the night, for those who care I was using a Canon 5DmkII camera with 24-70 L series lenses plus a canon 540 ex II flash.

To the owner of the Lexington please put ion some more powerful spot lights then I could dispense with having to use my Flash, you have a great venue for music why not also male i a great place to capture some brilliant acts on film in.

I would also like to mention that this night coincided with  national hug a drummer day, I managed to hug 5 in one day and i have been wondering if this is any kind of a record?

If you are interested in the live event or promo photography then please free to contact me anytime.
