In February of last year Vancouver photographer Christopher Edmonstone embarked on a journey to visit, interview and photograph over 125 artists in their homes. Vancouver Is Awesome Lifestyle Magazine was so taken with his work they chose to feature one artist per week called #ArtistAtHome.
If you’re old enough, you may remember Mavis Staples from the gospel soul group The Staples Sisters. If you are more tuned into the current music scene, you may know that Mavis Staples is not one of those oldies churning out dated hits from days gone by. In fact, she has won two recent grammy awards; the first in 2011 for Best Americana Album, produced by frontman Jeff Tweedy of the alt country group Wilco and most recently, won ‘Best Roots Performance‘ at 2016 Grammy Awards for ‘See That My Grave Is Kept Clean’ off the New Album “Livin’ On A High Note”, produced by the remarkable songwriter/artist/producer, M. Ward.
