Abby Williamson is a photographer, writer, and video blogger with a passion for live music – especially the local scene. She recently moved to Seattle after commuting from Gig Harbor for shows an average of once a week for five years, so she’s happy to not have to drive as much and photograph even more concerts!
When she’s not elbowing her way up to the front row at a show or sorting through thousands of photos of those shows, Abby also does freelance wedding photography, all the while cultivating a decent-sized following on YouTube.
Abby has contributed to several music blogs over the last five years (and she’s really excited to join the SMI team!), and has been published in at least one album booklet for the band, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. She would like people to know that while music photography and writing is a huge passion in her life – she is a fan first, photographer second.

Some people say it feels like those early Summer Meltdown Festival weekends back in the early 2000s. It's something different. But it's a party. There are only 400 tickets. Everyone has the chance to become friends and most everyone does. You aren't supposed to go "backstage" but nobody is really going to stop you if you are bringing the bass player you grew up with a pie. Especially if you baked it.
It's July 18 through 20. This is where Austin Jenckes and Ayron Jones were featured over a half a dozen times before they became big names.
...And it's the fest that might book your band, if you play a show in the Valley. It's a natural thing. You play your heart out. Founder Morgan Henley loves it and plays you on his community radio show, and books you every where he can, because ultimately, he's a FAN. ... See MoreSee Less
