Earlier this year we shared a list of “41 Seattle Artists we’re Watching in 2015” as a way to highlight emerging local bands deserving of attention. Throughout the year we’ll continue to cover as much of the area’s music scene as possible, but we’ll put a special emphasis on getting to know these “#41for2015” acts.
Photographer Jim Toohey recently had the opportunity to shoot one of them, Charlatan (Omar Rashan), at Cafe Racer. Augmented by gear emitting electronic beats and buzzing synthesizers, Omar plays guitar and sings live when he performs, resulting in dark electro-pop with a punk edge.
