During SXSW 2018, we had the opportunity to bring back our Portrait Studio for a second year, where a selection of artists from all over the world performing in the Music Festival came by for a hangout and quick photo shoot. This is our second set of photos from the session — check out the first set here for photos of Jay Park, Linda Perry, Sunflower Bean, AJ Tracey, and more.

This gallery features emerging indie-pop star Billie Eilish, Puerto Rican rockers Black Guayaba, experimental electro-pop artist CIFIKA, party-starting r&b singer Duckwrth, Austin-native indie rock group Duncan Fellows, LA-based art-punk band French Vanilla, subdued dream-pop singer Gus Dapperton, reverb-washed duo In The Valley Below, entrancing electro artist Jackie Mendoza, and French songstress Lou Rebecca, who released her self-titled EP on Holodeck in early 2018.

Also appearing are Romanian multi-genre pop act Moonlight Breakfast, West Coast crooner NoMBe, futuristic R & B act R.LUM.R, livewire glam-punk band Starcrawler who were awarded our 2018 Grulke Prize for Developing US Act, and The Frights who just released a stomping new single titled “CRUTCH”.

Thanks to our friends over at Google that partnered with us on the project.
