Three years ago, Paste published the first “Day in the Life” story featuring Delta Spirit. It was essentially a photo journal of what it’s like to be with the artist or band for the day. Photos taken during load-in, sound check, backstage, during the concert and sometimes a quick photo shoot made the cut. The photographer, Doug Seymour, soon found himself taking more behind-the-scenes photos and needed somewhere to host these images: a series was born.
In July of 2011, Paste published A Day in the Life of Erykah Badu. It quickly became one of the most popular photo features in the site’s history.
Seymour took photos on the stage and behind the scenes for a second day in the life at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, Pa. on March 2nd.
