Musicians, Artists and Friends on Hand at Showing
By DONNA BALANCIA
The Blessings performed as fans of photography and music gathered at Pop Obscure Records in downtown L.A. for an exhibit by photographer Heather Harris.
Harris has been shooting rock stars for 50 years, but you would never know it by her youthful appearance and never ending passion for her craft.
Musicians and Friends Celebrate
“Heather has been great to us,” said Jeremy White of The Blessings. “She has been supportive of us and she makes us look good.”
The Blessings, who have three CDs, played some of their well-known tunes in a mini-set, including “Shipwrecked on The Shore.” Frontman Jeremy White said new music is on the way.
The Blessings band members were among the artists, local as well as well-known, who are portrayed in the many photos that grace the walls of Pop Obscure. Pop Obscure is the latest entry into the vinyl-seller niche. The store has racks and racks of old and new records.
