RUBY FRIEDMAN ORCHESTRA live


photo (C) 2010 Heather Harris.
I photographed the Ruby Friedman Orchestra last night. (2.25.10) What an emotive singer! After only 19 gigs together, the band's next is at one of L.A.'s premiere venues, the Roxy. Future stars! I figured this was the last stop before the fabled big time to get some close-up pics.
This shot was photographed without flash, I just tweaked the light and color balance when I got home. (I prefer stage light to flash or fill-flash whenever possible, despite higher ISO, and then fill flash if I have to.) It also was photographed way after the requested "three song limit" for photographers, as the artist didn't do this expression or stance until much later in the show.

ruby reminds me of a cross between bette midler and cyndi lauper with a bit of Lucy thrown in for good measure..Love her retro style

Far better voice than all three when heard in person: present Youtube recording technology does not do her justice. Good songwriter too: has already sold a song to one of those Become A Star reality shows.

And amazing 6" platform retro shoes as well, but I preferred photographing her pretty, expressive face.

An isp address would be awesome for the last comment. You want to track the haters that become stalking cyber bullys early. Ruby is AWESOME!
