Live Photos: All We Wanted Was Michelle Branch at Her NYC Record Release Show

As Michelle Branch explained to Paste last month, her third solo album was a long time coming…as in, 14 years of navigating record label red tape and studio session false starts. But the alt-pop singer/songwriter who stormed Total Request Live and opened up for Lifehouse back in high school has shifted dynamically since her first two albums released in the early aughts, dropping into moodier registers and “capturing the emotional peaks and valleys that occur as one relationship ends and another begins,” per Paste’s own Rachel Brodsky. Celebrating Hopeless Romantic, released last Friday, Branch has been touring with producer and partner Patrick Carney of The Black Keys. Paste photographer DeShaun Craddock caught Branch’s record release show at the Marlin Room of Webster Hall last week, playing new and old tracks.
