Heather walked into our room last Tuesday night and was like "Heyyyy, Tyrone Wells just tweeted that he needs merch help tomorrow night." I was like, "Um, what's the email address?" So I emailed that night and got a response on Wednesday saying that they'd love our help. We left work early because I (stupidly) scheduled two photoshoots for school that afternoon. We got home I did one shoot, took a 30 minute nap, showered, did another photoshoot, ate dinner and then we headed downtown to The Knitting Factory.
We had a fabulous time! We'd never seen Tyrone before because the timing was never right. He is amazing to see live and tells some great stories. His voice is incredible; it's so smooth and it just cuts right through you. You just want to wrap yourself in his music. We were able to meet him afterwards and he was sooo nice! We were also able to meet his drummer and tour manager, Mark, who set us up at the merch table. It's great meeting genuine people who are doing what they love. Enjoy this video of Sea Breeze (one of my fav songs) and be sure to check out his website for more of his music!
P.S. Tyrone and his wife, Elina just released an album called Different As Can Be, and it's absolutely adorable. Like, so cute and barfy that it physically hurts. Their relationship is beautiful and one that I dream of. They sang three songs together at the show and they were so great! Check out Tyrone and Elina here.
