A Day With Sylvan Esso

Story by Chad Kamenshine August 10th, 2017

Spending time alongside Sylvan Esso's Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn is like watching two kids play together in their creative sandbox. Within their playfulness is a strength powered by sass, joy, and tenacity. It's this frenetic energy and expressiveness that not only lays down a strong foundation for their partnership but also a direct connection to capturing peoples musical hearts.

Follow along as we go from squeezing into a Willy Wonka sized hallway for portraits to experiencing their performance at Prospect Park's Bandshell.
