Shura and Tegan & Sara at The Observatory - 9.28.16

words + photos by Joe Cortez

English singer, songwriter and producer Shura stopped by Santa Ana's Observatory on Wednesday night, September 28, opening for Tegan and Sara in support of her debut album, "Nothing's Real" (available now via Polydor Records).

I was incredibly taken with Shura's gift for composing melody and earnestness. At first seemingly shy on stage, Shura and her bandmates soon opened up, revealing a performer who at times appeared tender and vulnerable and others fierce and maybe even a little dangerous.

Check out my photos from the night, also featuring headliners Tegan and Sara, below. For more on Shura, be sure to visit and follow @weareshura on Twitter.
