Red Light Challenge // Tom Butler // Kassidy Lynne // Batbox

RED LIGHT CHALLENGE

Red Light Challenge is a pop rock band made up of two high-energy, multi-instrumental brothers from Hawaii. Brothers Sean (27) and Kyle (22) Luster were born and raised on the island of Oahu, both graduated as valedictorian of their class, and have been playing music together for fun since they were kids. Although the band typically consists of two core members, they continue to create huge soundscapes both live and in the studio using their love for songwriting and their high-energy attitudes. The brothers have developed a unique sound coming from Hawaii, while being able to incorporate catchy Pop melodies, multi-part harmonies, R&B grooves, and Rock sensibilities into their music.

 The brothers from Red Light Challenge pride themselves on consistently delivering memorable live shows with songs that audiences can move to. Both their electric and acoustic sets always contain dozens of original songs and a wide range of original takes on cover songs by artists such as The Beatles, Imagine Dragons, Bruno Mars, and many more. In addition to performing and recording, the band created and put on multiple events for “Red Light Challenge, Green Light Go”, a fun, student-interactive assembly program that empowers students to achieve their goals.

TOM BUTLER

Nobody can accuse Tom Butler of taking the easy route. After picking up his first guitar at 14, he soon made his move from Seattle to London, where he crafted his heart-felt sound over four years whilst holding down a full-time job.

The result? A story-telling musician who combines the big catchy choruses of The Lumineers with the authentically written ballads of John Mayer. It’s then delivered with a killer live performance that packs a real emotional punch.

Years later his hard work is finally starting to pay off. His debut EP ‘On the Line’ had a successful radio re-release in October 2014, and he received a PRS for Music Songwriting Prize. In 2015 Tom performed at several prestigious events including the BRIT Awards, Feast of St George's at Trafalgar Square in London and Glastonbury Festival on the PRS for Music VIP Stage. Tom was also featured Canadian Music Week, Greenbelt Festival and International Pop Overthrow (Liverpool).

In 2016 he has performed showcases for BRITsWeek and Metropolis Studios. He is currently recording his debut album due to be released later this year. Watch out for Tom Butler – it’s a name you’re going to start hearing again and again.

KASSIDY LYNNE

Winning “Best Country Artist” in 2017 for the Hollywood in Music Media Award and Nominated “Best Independent Music Video 2018” for Baby Just Cruise, 17 year old pop country recording artist, Seattle native, Kassidy Lynne has a passion for singing and songwriting that is only matched by her devotion to her family and her faith.

In 2015, she began song writing in Nashville with songwriter and recording artist Jordan Pruitt. Later that year, she teamed up with producer Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Third Day) to record her debut EP titled "Carolina Water.”

Mr. Dinkles // King Sheim // David's Van

MR. DINKLES

Mr. Dinkles is a power punk duo made up of teen babes Mac Rettig and Gretchen Elliot. Having met years back at School of Rock in Seattle, the two were always more interested in rocking than high school drama. So much so, they linked up and started writing songs about it. After only a few short practices, they had a full EP of songs ready to record and started shooting music videos and teasers on their iPhones. In less than 2 months, Mr. Dinkles (named after Gretchen’s red headed stumpy legged cat) was born. With influences like the Dead Kennedy’s, TacoCat, Bikini Kill, Rush and SWMRS, these two bring classic punk together with current pop melodies, loud crunchy guitars and plenty of catchy hooks you can scream all day long.

KING SHEIM

Celeste has been making music in Seattle since she was 11. Her most recent project, King Sheim, has fulfilled her search for a sufficient outpouring of her musical and poetic knowledge. Celeste prides herself on her songwriting skills and friendly stage presence with a side of the badass-ery of the 90’s riot grrrl scene in Olympia, Washington. She loves writing songs she & others can scream to, as well as sultry ballads and blues rock. King Sheim has something for everyone! Girls to the front!!

She has performed as a semi-finalist at Sound Off! 2019 @ MoPop, Upstream Music Festival on the Rain City Rock stage , Seattle’s FolkLife Music & Arts Festival, Summerfest, Crocodile Cafe, as well as numerous other public and private events with her bands. Currently, she is a composition student at Cornish College of the Arts.

Treneti // Whales Whailing

Treneti

Treneti’s path of awakening the muse within came from much time spent alone in the woods learning to play bass and sing by listening the vibrations of the plants and meditating with the stars. Her musical messages come from a deep connection with the Earth and the Cosmos, she is a rainbow bridge. Treneti is well known for her work as a sound healing artist and has shared musical medicine in both North and Central America. With her band, Treneti brings soul music that pulls up the primordial rhythms the Earth and down the celestial tones of the cosmos anchoring them both right in the center of the heart.

Whales Whailing

"...occult without being obscure, spiritual without being
indoctrinating, and psychedelic without everything melting
into...puddles.." Chad Deal, SD Reader

Peter Ryan has been writing songs for 20 years, since he was 12. He
chose the name Whales Whailing in 2008 and has shared his music with
many band members and collaborators. Some of the songs that come
through him are spiritual prayers, while others focus on self-help,
love, romance, and breaking up. He is a bold, sensitive, and
passionate performer and records much of his own music. His buttery
baritone voice is powerfully vulnerable. Whales Whailing has
self-released two albums and a couple singles, although many of his
songs and albums have been released under other names. He is currently
working on a new album in Portland, Oregon with his drummer, Joey
Binhammer.

Like a Rocket

LIKE A ROCKET

A bloody mess of American music smashed together by a tanker truck stinking of oil, gasoline and carnival fried dough. Shit sister, it's music, so stop asking so many questions. By the way you look a little over dressed, take off that sweater and let me buy you a beer.

 

Often described as beautiful pairing of Levon Helm and Roger Waters, Like A Rocket mix great Alt-Country and 70s stoner psychedelia to bake a blisteringly funky creamy dreamy cake. A serious love of dreaming in rhythm, the songs all have something to move your body or engage your head. The lyrics are extremely personal, about broken relationships with mates, lovers, and the surrounding world of politics and dissatisfaction. You find yourself grooving along while picking up on choruses that speak to the world around you, particularly if you happen to being pulling twenty to life for a crime your ex actually committed.



Gray is an award wining songwriter getting nods from heavy hitters such as NPR's nationally broadcast Mountain Stage and the Carolina Theater Songwriter of The Year award.

Mariah Belgrod

Mariah Belgrod

Mariah Belgrod grew up as a free spirit in the Amish farm-town of New Holland, Pennsylvania, where the horse and buggy is still a legitimate way to travel. Relocating to the West Coast in early 2018, Mariah has spent the last year recording her debut EP to pursue her dream of becoming a successful recording artist and performer. The big city of Seattle, Washington is a far cry from her small town roots.

Born to two New Yorkers, Mariah was exposed to the performing arts at a young age.   She found her passion for expression and music performing at the Fulton Opera House in Lancaster, PA from the age of 7.  Mariah performed in plays and musicals, including Les Misérables, Fiddler on the Roof, and Annie.  She also spent more than thirteen years dancing - styles which included ballet, tap, pointe, hip hop, and jazz.  However, at the age of 15, Mariah lost the zeal for performance that once claimed her as she began her battle with depression, so she left the stage. 

In 2016, Mariah discovered the karaoke-style singing app Smule.  On Smule, Mariah found not only a place to creatively let off steam, but also a community of people with similar interests and struggles.  In typical Mariah fashion, she wanted to be a light in that community, and show people the healing power of music.  Through Smule, Mariah started her journey in discovering herself, as well as a profound way to cope with her internal struggles - singing for and with others.  In the process, her powerhouse vocals and genuine, infectious personality garnered over 225,000 followers  around the world, who have sang along with her more than 78,500 times

Mariah is now a verified Partner Artist on the app, where she further developed her performance and vocal talents.  On Smule, you can join Mariah in singing fun pop songs, as well as musical numbers reminiscent of her theatre days.  In 2018, Mariah was nominated for an iHeartRadio Music Award under the Social Star Category.  She attended the ceremony in March and walked her first red carpet.  Later that month, Mariah released her first single, “Empty Spaces.” 

Since the release of her single, Mariah has been working on her debut EP with Focal Productions, a production house in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Embracing her continuous battle with mental health, and her past experiences with detrimental relationships, Mariah believes in the importance of representation for women in music.  As such, Mariah sought out a female songwriter and co-producer in Alyssa Wendzel, who could help her share her positive, empowering messages for women.  With lyrics like “you’ll find me in your empty spaces” and “here’s to me, I’m done,” Mariah’s first single celebrates women knowing their worth, and knowing when to walk away from bad situations.  With her passion for strengthening and encouraging her listeners, her debut EP is one to watch out for.

Feral Folk

A veteran of the Seattle songwriter scene, Allie (who formerly performed under the name Abi Grace) has performed everywhere from small town taverns to the swanky W Seattle hotel, to Microsoft offices and large conferences. She's had music featured on public television and in a number of independent films. Compared to Conor Oberst and Ani DiFranco for her adept lyricism and passionate performance style, Allie performs with her band, The Feral Folk, and is also available for solo shows.

The daughter of two ministers, Allie grew up in a house hold in which literal meaning and symbolic meaning were seen as equal. She is fascinated by the way that music allows humanity to explore and make peace with inner truths as well as the mysterious and unexplainable. Her lyrics are rich in semi-mystical symbolism while retaining a true to folk accessibility.

Veronica Malki // Socorra // Adira Sharkey

Soulful, enchanting songs, rich vocal stylings, and powerful, magical presence. Seattle's Veronica Malki's first love and favorite feeling is singing. Yet, not until the age of 21 did she pick up the guitar and begin to write songs, studying in Granada, Spain at the time. Three years later, she assembled a band in San Jose, CA and recorded her first studio album, Listening (2010). In 2012, Veronica transplanted to Seattle, WA and practiced professionally as a birth doula while continuing to sing locally and taking root in the surrounding creative communities. She has opened for The Wild Reeds, Stelth Ulvang (The Lumineers), and twice for John Craigie. Veronica's 2018 studio release, To The Sound From The Bay, is a solo EP  recorded at BOC Studios in Seattle. It is available on everywhere!

Socorra is a singer-songwriter from the San Jose, California. She is a drummer turned guitar player, bringing her blues-driven indie-rock sound to the Bay Area. Suffering from stage fright at a young age, she didn’t start performing in front of people until she was 18 years old when she was recruited to be in an acapella group her freshman year of college. Throughout her college years she explored songwriting and performing more before joining the Peace Corps in Morocco in 2010. During her volunteer service she had opportunities to perform all over Morocco, discovering ways to connect with people through music.      

After serving in the Peace Corps, she took an internship at an independent record label where she was more inspired to step out from behind the scenes and put out her own music. She released her EP, Break in 2017 and has opened up for acts like Blues Traveler and Fantastic Negrito. Heavily influenced by everything from Motown and Led Zeppelin to HAIM and Sheryl Crow, she strives to bring soulful performances to every show.

Adira Sharkey is a singer-songwriter from San Jose, CA who blends percussive acoustic instrumentation with punchy, poignant lyricism and rhythmic vocal arrangements. She shares commonalities with the politically-charged, radically [and sometimes brutally] honest female singer-songwriters that came before her. Adira is a raw, unfiltered storyteller who is not afraid to lead her audience to the darker side of love and longing. A traveler at heart, she’s been described as "a time traveller from the dust bowl" with a "bluesy folk" sound - picking up folk melodies from Spanish immigrants in the Pacific Northwest along with finger-picking tricks from ex-pats in Israel.

Pickled Okra

Pickled Okra is in an entirely different category of Americana string band.  Skirting the edges of many genres, their sound and style is perhaps the child of bluegrass married with funk, reggae, rockabilly, and some other surprises.  At the core of it all is the Pickled Okra duo:  Todd and Paisley Gray, a charmingly quirky yet well-dressed ol’ married couple.  Their intricate harmonies weave together with the high tones of mandolin, and low bellows of the upright bass.  Banjo is often added to the mix, and dished out with expertise by one of several renowned local masters.  They have gained recognition for delighting audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest, and their recordings have attracted the attention of music industry fixtures as far away as the UK.

The Simple Parade //

Formed in the central coast of California in 2014, alternative folk group The Simple Parade creates music that is as fluid and free as the ocean waters they were bred from. Led by singer/songwriter Justin Hooper, this musical project speaks to the rawest parts kept hidden with their feel-good, acoustic-driven tunes.

Since his time in high school choir, where his school was one of three in the nation selected to sing in Carnegie Hall, Justin Hooper felt a passion for songwriting, guitar, and piano, and throughout the years of ups and downs, music has always been the shining light he has always felt compelled to share with others.

Justin (sometimes joined by a full backing band) performs and resides in Colorado, much of The Simple Parade’s music was written in and is inspired by their time in California, with songs based off his relationships along the coast. Inspired by the thick lyricism and evocative vocals of artists such as: Simon & Garfunkel, Brandi Carlile, Coldplay, The Civil Wars, and Chris Stapleton, The Simple Parade works to ask questions and tackle topics that many people ponder, but rarely talk about.

Fresh out of the gate, the debut single, “Confetti” (2014) earned Hooper the New Times Music Award, while the first full album A Love Story (2016) earned several awards, such as the Great American Songwriting Award for “Heartstrings” and the Akademia Award for Best Americana Song for “Go With You.” With an impressive set of achievements and a humble disposition, the band continues to spread their word throughout the Rocky Mountains. The newest singles and music videos, “Going Through Something,” (released November 2018) and "Broken Beauties" (released February 2019) is just the first taste of what is to come from their upcoming album, Seeker, to be early 2020. 

It is so easy to get caught in the mindset of moving in life’s rigid assembly line, or tinkering along its immovable traffic jam. But the hope is instead to enjoy the simple thrill of the parade, where everyone has their own unique part to play. One’s parade should stem from the relationships they make along the way, and though the march is rarely easy, it never has to be made alone.

The Simple Parade is set to release their upcoming album Seeker in Summer 2019. In the meantime, they will continue to hit the Colorado roads, performing at venues, festivals, and wineries/breweries along the way.

Amsellem // Mike Simmons // The Drifter Luke

"Amsellem", which translates from Hebrew as "People of Peace", is the musical project created by Daniel Amsellem. The project started with an acoustic guitar, dynamic microphone and a loop station, and carried on to a full set of instruments with unique arrangements and intimate while powerful songs that come from true feeling.

"In/Out" is Amsellem's debut album. This concept album is formed out of 10 songs that split into 3 parts of a story – betraying trust, hurting, and reconciling.

The album is a collection of experiences and memories from a 5-year relation between himself and a lost love. starting with anger and disappointment and ending with a catharsis and peace of mind, the album truly depicts a whirlpool of emotions as it goes on.

Most of the album was produced and recorded by Amsellem at his childhood bedroom in Ashdod, Israel with the rest recorded in Tel Aviv by much appreciated musicians.

Mike Simmons

"Alternative Rock singer/songwriter Mike Simmons began writing songs and poems when he was down-and-out looking for viable ways to make money. Writing was the first to catch and Simmons began reading his poems to kids on the street and dancers on the late shift at a strip club where his friends worked when it was slow. This led to meeting a group of musicians one night who recognized his ability to create and urged him to take writing and music more seriously suggesting he try actually saying something people could understand. In the years since, Simmons has developed into an emotive songwriter who has played his music across America in venues ranging from clubs and halls to gas stations and adult video stores. His writing skills and melodic instincts quickly drew notice from emerging producers in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles who hired him to groom the artists they were recording. During this period, Simmons began drifting into the fine arts and contemporary subculture communities in Cambridge and New York. His writing began to explore the thin line between the gritty life he lived each day and the glamorous one he was beginning to embark on in the evenings in the company of debutantes and artists on the rise. This tension led to Simmons' debut album Sunburn, a ten-song effort tracked in two days that narrates Simmons' early days living in Los Angeles. Sunburn sings of days spent with the almost-stars of the new LA and nights spent with junkies, prostitutes, and other street people if only, according to Simmons, because they slept as infrequently as he did. Currently in Seattle, Summer 2019 will see Simmons dropping a series of new singles (made in the comfort of his studio in the attic of an old porn shop) while continuing to play shows, develop bands, and deliver readings of his original works. Mike Simmons is one of the most important emerging songwriters currently working anywhere. No mere scene-maker, Simmons seems to have the constant grip on "cool" and rare ability to recognize things with true staying power, sometimes even before they appear to happen."
