Live Concert Photography: The Bright Smoke with Emmerson and her Clammy Hands and Adir LC at Littlefield 7/27/19
Currently comprised of founding duo Mia Wilson (vocals, guitar, piano) and Quincy Ledbetter (guitar, bass, piano) with Karl Thomas (drums) and Yuki (electronics), the Brooklyn-based indie act The Bright Smoke initially formed as a duo featuring its founding members, Wilson and Ledbetter. With the release of their full-length debut Late for War, which was written and recorded as a duo, the act won attention across the blogosphere and elsewhere for crafting moody yet gorgeous landscape, which was heavily inspired by Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen, Cat Power, PJ Harvey and Chelsea Wolfe.
Sadly, the band will be going on an indefinite hiatus but I finally caught the band — this time as a duo featuring Wilson and Thomas — headlining a show at Littlefield earlier this year with Emmerson and her Clammy Hands and singer/songwriter Adir LC. Check out photos from the show below.
Fronted by Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Emmerson Pierson (vocals, guitar), Emmerson and her Clammy Hands is a Brooklyn-based indie act featuring Theo Munger (guitar), Alexander Orange Drink (bass and production).

With his latest album Basket Star, the New Jersey-born singer/songwriter found himself not only writing songs as he passed through on his varied travels but arranging and recording those same songs, as he moved from one ad-hoc studio to another, including Brooklyn apartments and practice spaces. an aunt’s house in Vermont, a studio outside Binghamton, NY and elsewhere.
