Photo of Marian Hill by Derrick Weber

In addition to a number of live sets and interviews at SXSW 2017, there were plenty of quiet moments offstage.

Between sets, we captured portraits from some of the week's best performers, including Marian Hill, Kate Nash, Midland, Earl St. Clair, The Japanese House, Jacob Banks and more.

See the gallery below (photos by Derrick Weber, unless otherwise noted) and find our full SXSW 2017 coverage here.
