Intrinsic Factor with Shipwreck Motel

"Begun as the solo recording project of Izzy Majcher, Intrinsic Factor now includes Eamon Gaffney on bass and Jack Noe on drums as part of the live band. Based on organic rock songwriting, Intrinsic Factor brings in synthetic and samples to augment and decorate their songs, from the reversed synth intro of “Dominoes” to the recurring eerie howling and bubbling sounds of “Ghost Water”. Live, the band seeks to simplify and make more driving their songs with a simple trio of guitar, drums and bass, with occasional synthetic flourishes using a loop pedal for playback. We’re very excited to play Stone Way Cafe, as it is one of our favorite venues in Seattle!"

"Evolving from folk origins into a confident rock outfit, Shipwreck Motel has continued to explore musical terrain with their new album Wading In Time. Based out of Olympia, WA, the band has been creating music since 2007 when singer/songwriter Sam Scarpelli began turning poetry into song. Multiple lineup changes throughout the past decade has created a catalog of unique albums, each one a step forward for the group. Featuring the talents of drummer Jake Fredrickson and bassist Levi Jess, the band is back in action and ready to rock!"

Joel Ansett with Van Andrew

Joel Ansett grew up in Spokane, WA  but got his songwriting start just outside of Pittsburgh, PA while attending Grove City College. Performing around campus built enough momentum that upon graduating in 2012 with a degree in history, he shifted his focus and began pursuing a career as a songwriter and musician. Songs from his debut full length album, ‘The Nature of Us,’ went on to win national songwriting awards and earned him recognition as a songwriter on the rise. Dubbed by The Huffington Post as “the sonic lovechild of John Legend and The Tallest Man On Earth,” Joel’s songs combine folk and R&B to great effect; and beyond the sonic qualities of the music, Artist Review wrote: “This music is soul therapy. It takes us within and shines our own light back at us.” With a passionate, loyal fanbase in his corner, Joel most recently crowdfunded $33,000 to bring a second full-length album to life. The album will be produced by Jon Joseph and is set to release in the spring of 2019. 

Van Andrew is an artist and singer/songwriter currently living in Northwest Washington. With a passion for people and storytelling, his music is a marriage of simple guitar riffs, indie rock, and word pictures sung from the heart.

Mark Brainard with Ruth the Mermaid

Mark Brainard with Ruth the Mermaid

His origin remains a mystery, all we know is that our fearless leader currently resides in the Seattle area. A man, or perhaps just a glorious, and strange apparition. A being that manages to defy space, and time. A mystical minstrel. The troubadour we all adore.
                    Some minds are incapable of digesting his splendor. For oh so many of us are lost inside ourselves. Fixated on past traumas, so much so that we end up re-enacting them into infinity. These convoluted mentalities disrupt their ability to process the eternal benovolence that our fearless leader effortlessly dispenses. This does not discourage him, for he will not relent. He will re-awaken our slumbering spirit, and provide guidance in the overwhelming menagerie of the modern age.  And restore the eternal truths we managed to lose sight of somewhere along the way.
Our foreign, and yet familiar shepherd will escort us all, hand in hand, into the New Dawn as one.  He's also a good singer, and his songs are wicked catchy.  

Ruth Navarre (Ruth the Mermaid) received her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from Louisiana State University, where she studied the viola. After graduating from LSU, she moved to New Orleans and expanded into Celtic fiddle and harp. She directed the all-female ensemble Lady Morgan from 2014 to 2017, releasing an album in 2017. Inspired by professional mermaid performers, she started performing as a mermaid in 2017. She enjoys playing at themed parties and Renaissance Fairs. Ruth hopes someday to produce the Northwest's first mermaid festival.

Arran Fagan with Jeremy Ferrara

A product of the grassroots music movement of Southern Oregon, Medford artist Arran Fagan has spent the greater part of his life pursuing music, working his way into the northwest folk scene by playing countless coffee shops and house shows for college classmates and eventually opening for northwest favorites like Leif Vollebekk, HorseFeathers, Kris Orlowski, and Jeffrey Martin. In 2015, Arran recruited fellow University of Portland students Jack Pfeffer and Jonathan Wiley, and the three worked to perfect a sparse, melodic sound influenced by their individual backgrounds. Fueled by introspective lyrics and nostalgic melodies provided by the intimate combination of viola, bass, and acoustic guitar, his music explores themes of loss, growth, and the passage of time with fresh eyes. Arran’s third album, Weight of Time, was released in January of 2018.

 Jeremy Ferrara is a folk singer and guitarist based in Portland, OR. With introspective lyrics and guitar playing full of subtlety, his songs are rich with vulnerability, intimacy, and a style that doesn’t hold back. Having played in bands since he was 12, Jeremy found his voice as a solo artist in the DIY scene of Santa Barbara. Ferrara’s most recent EP “Shining Garden” was recorded live to tape in a good friend’s bedroom, and it exemplifies his songwriting in its purest form.

Alki Jones with Airport Strangers and And Friends

Alki Jones has the musical vibe that keeps the audience dancing all night. This Seattle-based band hits you hard with a rock band’s powerful grooves and killer guitar solos, strums easy and sings sweetly like a sentimental country act, and exudes the raw emotion and passion of the Pacific Northwest alternative/grunge scene. In 2016, Northwest Music Scene described the band’s style as a “distinct and difficult-to-pin-down approach to rock and country music.” Singer and acoustic guitar player Andrew Galbreath, lead guitarist Tyler Petersheim, drummer Bruce Weitz, and bass player Chase Baldwin bring talent and a diverse musical sound to the many venues and musical festivals they’ve played throughout Washington and Oregon, including a mainstage performance at Seattle’s 2017 Folklife Festival. 


Alki Jones’ first EP, Deep Well Sessions (Deep Well Studio, Woodinville, WA) was released in 2015. Their sophomore album, Volume 1 (1Shot Studio), which features the single, “Mine and Yours”, a nostalgic track inspired by the band members' loyal attendance at music festivals at the iconic Gorge Amphitheatre, was released in 2017. Their website (alkijones.com) displays Alki Jones’ logo, with the band’s name hovering over the Pacific mountains, and a seagull soaring above the ocean, perhaps near Alki Beach. “Jones” is a reference to how the band members see themselves, “as regular working-class guys with day jobs. Nothing flashy, you see what you get.”  And what you get, according to the 2016 review in Northwest Music Scene, is “an act that you can’t miss out on.”

Madeline Tasquin

Accompanying herself on piano, guitar or ukulele, often with an excellent band behind her, BC-born singer-songwriter-performer Madeline Tasquin delivers her intricately-crafted music with a radiant stage persona, with spontaneity, humour and vulnerability in all the right moments, guided by a voice that doesn’t seem it could possibly emerge from her small frame.

Madeline’s sound is distinctly her own; each song having its own life, and the story that gave birth to it. Whether it be a Joni Mitchellesque jazz-folk song on piano about losing the log cabin home her Dad built to the bank at age 5, or a playful prog-pop tune “written at the best picnic ever,” or bilingual waltz on ukulele about a dangerous brush with a wind god, its all woven together with a nimble and powerful voice, her gentle harmonic and rhythmic twists and turns, and a palpable presence with her audience.

Zach Zamora with Branik and Aaron Spieldenner

Zach Zamora is an alternative singer/songwriter from Montgomery, AL. Now residing in Seattle, he has slowly been gaining recognition in the local music scene with his unique sound which is a combination of honest and unapologetic lyrics reminiscent of Elliott Smith and Julien Baker, the catchy anthemic melodies of mid-2000s emo, along with the precise approach to guitar similar to John Mayer.

From Colorado roots, and a little bit of Boston, Branik finds home in Seattle, WA. She believes in love, the power of kindness, and really great movie soundtracks. Heavily influenced by the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, Branik brings heartache and soul to her music. She uses a fusion of Rock and Folk to entrance you with a solo acoustic set. Currently, Branik is working on her first Solo EP, set for a December 2018 release.

Aaron Spieldenner is a singer-songwriter whose music ranges from a modern folk sound to straight-ahead rock. Having first begun writing songs at 10 years old, Aaron has used songwriting throughout his life as a means for observation, reflection, and making some sort of sense of the world. A native to Seattle, Aaron tends to be particularly inspired by overcast skies, historical events, and uncomfortable day-to-day interactions.

The Living Street with Noah Byrd and Jesse Gallaway

The Living Street is an indie-folk duo consisting of Nick Guckert (Guitar/Vocals) and Edward J. Angelo (Bass/Vocals) formed in July 2017 in Pittsburgh, PA. Guckert and Angelo grew up in Lower Burrell, a small town just outside of the city and less than a mile down the road from one another. Both developed a love for music early on in life, but it wasn’t until the two met in school sports that they recognized a shared passion, burgers.  

 

After a decade of writing together on and off, they brought it back to the basics: just the two of them and an acoustic guitar writing honest songs through observation and self-reflection. They released their first single "Can't Steal My Love" on September 20th, 2017. The Living Street left for a tour of the east coast after the release of their debut self-titled album 'The Living Street' on January 5th, 2018. They returned home in April of 2018 to get back in the studio and prepare for a west coast tour in the fall.

Todd and the Toots

Todd and the Toots is a Seattle based acoustic reggae and soul group. Our music is played on acoustic instruments; Guitar, mandolin, upright bass, percussion and drums with rich vocal harmonies. All members of the band play in local bluegrass groups, and while this may influences our sound in some small way, there is nothing about the music that you would call bluegrass.  As our mandolinist, Brogan, likes to say... "It's baby making music"

  • The group formed in 2016 at the annual Gray family summer party we call Toddgrass. Brogan arrived wearing a Toots and the Maytals t-shirt and Todd exclaimed "I love Toots and the Maytals!". A few hours later the group was on stage, performing a handful of Toots songs they had worked up, and from that day forward we've been playing reggae together with big smiles on our faces. Todd likes to refer to Toots Hibbert as the "James Brown" of Jamaica so the band invited Rob Jones to bring his soul singing into the mix and really give it that "Toots" feel.

    We pride ourselves in putting the fun into our shows with great music and great danceable acoustic reggae. Join our mailing list to find out where we'll be playing next!

Cross and her band play soul, alt-pop/rock, funk, and more! Her songwriting explores mental health, empowerment, and of course, love and heartbreak because the best sets are the honest ones. Last year, Angela Cross released an EP with her band, a gospel choir, and some producers from USC (FYI Music Group). Everything was DIY and recorded in a living room with the AC turned off. Although everyone was sweating and suffering, the energy was through the roof and the music came to life! Listen to the EP in the link below if you have time! That DIY mentality is still very much part of the Angela Cross band because they are currently on their first west coast tour. Make sure to stop by Stone Way Cafe to catch them live!

Dearly Departed with Raging Forest

Dearly Departed is a Seattle musical group. Their electrocuted, punchy sounds are secretly lyrical folk songs at heart. The group was founded by songwriter Noble Monyei acoustically in the spring of 2011, mainly around living rooms and campfires. As songs began to take shape, and instruments were plugged, one by one, into amplifiers, the sound of Dearly Departed emerged as the undulating, mixed genre, experimental project that both pleases and challenges ears and hearts alike.

Loveangelists

Loveangelists is the Oakland-based duo of Nathan Dennen & Lisa Young. Strapped with an acoustic guitar and occasional percussion, the colorful folk pop duo uplifts audiences through an interactive exploration of bold, reflective, and soulful harmonies. Songs range from toe-tappin' hand-clappin' fun to deeply moving ballads and empowering anthems as they sing about nonconformity, love, and living life to the fullest. Their sound invokes likes of The Lumineers, Sonny & Cher, The Civil Wars, and Paul Simon with splashes of Americana, lyrical freestyling, and rhythm & blues.
