Kawika Sweeney // History of Time // Bill & Jonathan

Bill & Jonathan are a duo based in Seattle Washington.  Bill plays the drums and percussion with Jonathan on guitar and vocals. They developed a musical connection by getting together often on Sundays to play drums since they are both drummers and were interested in joining forces. Their rhythmic connection has since evolved into music based on Jonathan's songs. People have described their sound as "soulful-folk-rock, that evokes feelings and emotions of being in nature".  They are currently looking to bring additional musicians into the group as their music continues to grow.  It will be an intimate evening of sharing the simple joy of music and connectivity.

History Of Time moved to Seattle 3 years ago for Music School.  He started as a folk musician though stepped into more Hip Hop and Electronic Influences while living here.

Kawika Sweeney is a singer/songwriter inspired by the simple complexities of life, the blissful moments, the agonizing truths, the overwhelming desire to run in the face of adversity and the basic struggle of finding ones place in an ever spinning world.  It is his passion to bring people together and realize that their differences may also be their commonalities, their discrepancies may be their similarities and that by the simple fact that they are in the same place at the same time there is likeness.

Among Authors // The Holy Dark

Among Authors

A lyrically intriguing and musically emotional indie alt-rock band from Seattle Washington, Among Authors is fronted by lead singer and keyboardist Ian Ketterer. After undergoing open-heart surgery at the age of 23, Ian relocated the band from Wisconsin to Seattle, WA to further the band’s music career. The band is unsure why they write such emotional music, maybe getting Ian’s heart ripped out (in the most literal sense) subconsciously solidifies the band’s writing process.

Among Authors has always been completely independent in all forms of the word.  Aside from animating their debut music video for their single “Imitation House” in their bedrooms,  Among Authors’ debut full length album “I AM BECOME” was also recorded over a 4 year span in the band’s basement. All songs were written, produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by the band themselves. The digital version of the album is available everywhere digital music is streamed and sold. Physical CDs are also available on the band’s website along with limited 180 gram transparent blue vinyl releasing in December 2017.

Among Authors has been fortunate enough to be sponsored by an analog photography company called Lomography, which is based in Vienna, Austria. They also wrote and recorded the music for a short film called “Dear Emma” and their music will also be featured in an upcoming Playstation 4 and Xbox One game called “On A Roll” which is set to release in early 2018.

The Holy Dark

The Holy Dark is an emerging Portland based Gloom/Folk outfit formed by songwriter John Miller. The upcoming record “Pretty Little Bird” which was recorded in 2017 at Toadhouse Recording Studios with Adam Pike in Portland, Oregon explores the mysterious and often times bewildering complexities of human emotion.

Nice Nate

Nice Nate's beatmaking career started in middle school, using two pencils and drumming on his legs to pink floyd's 'the dark side of the moon.' at the tail end of high school, nate found madlib and j dilla and couldn't stop nodding his head. he enjoyed the feeling and wanted to spread that feeling to others. he immediately bought a 'j dilla changed my life' shirt and enrolled in the prodigious 'soundcloud beatmakers institute', graduating top of the class winning the graduation beat battle in a tight match against a 7-year old beatmaker prodigy named tony. somehow he's opened up for sir froderick, guilty simpson, knxwledge, and j dilla's friend house shoes wee!

Glimmer

“glimmer” is a new folk-pop band made up of theatre and music veterans, who have performed on Seattle stages for the past twenty years.  Their first album “Still Here” is available January 2017.

David Russell-(songwriter, guitar, vocals) currently co-writes and is the lead singer for Seattle country band “The 1-Uppers”, who are a staple of the local country dance scene as well as featured on KEXP.

Bruce Wirth-(violin, mandolin, accordion, lap steel) has played lots of instruments in lots of bands over the years, including “The Buckets,”  “Johnny Webelo”  and Sup Pop folk-rock pioneers, “The Walkabouts”.

Dan Tierney-(drums, percussion)  has played drums in various bands and theatre productions around town.  

Susan McIntyre- (vocals, glockenspiel) is a singer, actor, and director.  She fronted the band “Sumac” and directed and acted lots of roles in Seattle’s theatre scene.

David and Susan sang “Love Hurts” together at a party, six years ago, and instantly, the sound of their voices was a natural fit.  They started practicing; Susan on lullaby glockenspiel, David on guitar, and soon came up with their own take on the great harmony duos of the past:  Part Everly’s, part Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, part Simon and Garfunkel, (and maybe even a little Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham!).  

David started writing songs for the duo.  Elements of roots music, seventies folk rock, pop and gentle psychedelia, recombined into a haunting, hooky music, all it’s own.   

Dan joined in on percussion, Bruce joined in on everything else, and “glimmer” was born.

Craig Marker

Craig Marker

Over the past few years, Craig Marker has been using his music to capture the stories of those around him. There is a certain honesty that accompanies his storytelling — one that preserves the underlying feelings of desperation, hope, and uncertainty as he translates story to song. These songs reflect experiences of the past, struggles of the present, and dreams of the future — asking, “what if dreams can come true, and what happens if they don't?" He explains, “I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I like to think that I’m starting to ask the right questions.” 

Rooted in acoustic guitar, harmonica, and vocals, he is simplistic yet purposeful in his style — forming a modern sound that is classically inspired. Marker had the opportunity to share his work at the University of California, San Diego's 2015 Sun God Festival and recently wrapped up his time in San Diego with the release of his first album, Up Until Now.

Cavalerie

Cavalerie

In 2012, Cornish College of the Arts freshman Max Walker and Gabriel Brooks- Lopez began playing music in the dusty practice rooms and cluttered bedrooms of their 7th Avenue dormitories. Improvisations became tunes, and not before long the two first years were finalizing their compositions; filling books of music paper with a formidable repertoire of works. 

In the beginning, Cavalerie was an escape from the increasingly academic attitude that is found within Jazz pedagogy. Cavalerie was in fact chosen as a name because of its relation to the great painter and individualist Vincent van Gogh. While the founders worked diligently within their studies, it was tremendously therapeutic to play in a setting where the goal was for them and the audience to have a good time - no strings attached. 

Since this initial spark of creative zeal, Cavalerie has walked the rugged path that is laid before every bright young artist. They have played in dark smoky dive bars, been paid in bottled water, and have given everything that they have to preserve the embers of their passion. Through this struggle - as any veteran group will attest - they have matured as a group and become a solid unbreakable symbol of the tenacity that was kindled within those dusty 7th Avenue dorm rooms. 

As it stands, Cavalerie consists of bassist D.J. Rough, vocalist Jackie Pomeroy, pannist and percussionist Reuben Woodruff, percussionist Gabriel Brooks-Lopez, and guitarist Max Walker. They have played at many of the venues encompassing the greater Seattle area including: Seamonster Lounge, Tiny Ninja Cafe, El Corazon, High Dive, Stoneway Cafe, Der Hinterhof, and El Corazon. 

Cavalerie is in the process of mixing and mastering their first album which will consist of five tracks. This album will appear alongside Cavalerie’s 2013 demo Inner Stellar Grooves from the Fifth Dimension and their 2014 single The Ten O’Clock News

WEEP WAVE // Waking Things // Cityscaper

WEEP WAVE

http://weepwave.com/

"Raw and grungy rock through one solid release and live performance after another.Not that the band ever feels overwhelmingly hardcore or anything like that. Their energy and lo-fi aesthetic accentuates the band’s general playfulness and exuberance much more than it does trying to create an air of tryhard anger and heaviness. If you can imagine the unhinged vigor of a band like FIDLAR, but with the endearing quirk of an act like The Unicorns, and that sounds appealing, then (WEEP WAVE) is probably your new favorite band." - Northwest Music Scene

 

Waking Things

https://www.wakingthings.com

Waking Things is a rock band from Seattle, Washington. The group's music incorporates aspects of progressive rock, pop, heavy metal and post-hardcore.

"Living up to their name, the band itself seems to be stirring with revitalization." - Jay T. Conrad - The Wandering Eye: Political Art Collective & Zine
Waking Things is the brainchild of prolific songwriter Chris Sicard, whose work might best be characterized as a mash up of pop rock with overtones of Broadway and littered with metal guitar riffs. 
On their debut album "Idee Fixe", Waking Things explored the story of the Seattle Pac-Med building reimagined as an asylum for the criminally insane, which mirrored sentiments and struggles from Chris' upbringing. Changing pace and tone on their upcoming sophomore release "Details", the band is focusing on themes of ghost stories and how we associate our "skeletons" with self-perceptions and the impact that can have on our relationships.

 

Cityscaper

https://www.facebook.com/cityscaperofficial

(real website should be up soon)

Cityscape is a new project from guitarist & singer Ryan McLean. Ryan is getting ready to start his junior year at the University of Washington. He moved to Seattle from a small town in Kitsap county.  As a high school student Ryan attended SOTA (Tacoma’s school of the arts) where he formed his old band and played shows around Tacoma.
