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. Cityscaper is a solo project doing all ages shows around Seattle.

Beth// James PK Gregory

Beth // James is an indie folk duo from Austin, Texas made up of award winning singer-songwriters Mikaela Beth Kahn and Jordan James Burchill. Their original songs and razor sharp musicianship pick up where the Civil Wars left off. Their debut EP, All In Life, is "a shimmering mix of modern folk, mindful pop, and Americana charm," according to Paste Magazine and was named a "Standout EP of 2017" by the Austin-American Statesman.

The duo only began writing together a year ago, though they met in 2008 while studying jazz at the University of North Texas. Through the years they've played in various bands together, but All In Life takes their musical chemistry to the next level. Creating their own unique sound, Beth // James navigates effortlessly among American music traditions, rooted in storytelling, but with added indie pop/rock elements, intricate guitar work and arresting harmony.

Eric Elliott

A young and enthusiastic mountain dulcimer player, songwriter, and singer, Eric Elliott combines a respect for traditional acoustic music with a love of classic folk-rock to create a fresh and energetic style of mountain dulcimer music. Influenced by the dulcimer music and playing style of Force & d'Ossché, Eric's playing is upbeat, rhythmic, and fun to watch. Combine this technical instrumental skill with his thoughtful songwriting and melodic voice, and you have a unique, redefined genre of folk-pop/Americana dulcimer music that hearkens to the early songs of Paul Simon, Mimi and Richard Farina, Wilco, and other contemporary folk artists.

        Eric has played in bars, coffee shops, farmers' markets, back porches, and concert halls across the country for audiences of over 100 people, and has produced and released various collaborations with other talented musicians, including three studio albums with the San Antonio-based folk-rock band Jasper's Cast, in which Eric played dulcimer and sang lead vocals. In December of 2014, Eric released his first solo mountain dulcimer album, "Dots and Lines" through 3 Strings Records. It is a diverse and heartfelt collection of original folk-pop songs featuring both the acoustic and electric mountain dulcimer, and it redefines the instrument for a new generation of young songwriters.

Raye Zaragoza

Western society, both culturally and politically, currently feels like an endless spiral into disarray, a feeling compounded by apathy toward the pain suffered by so many people around the world. These issues have motivated multinational artist Raye Zaragoza to express her passion for activism through her creative work and to become a beacon of light for the ignored and weary minority.

Zaragoza's Native American (O'odham), Mexican, Taiwanese and Japanese descent endows her with a worldly viewpoint of society and forms the foundation of her passion for activism. In particular, she focuses on the cost of the “American Dream” from the Native American perspective. Zaragoza explains, “So many people have issues with immigrants entering our country. Many fail to realize that if you’re not Native American, you are an immigrant as well. It’s time that we learn from our past and promote peace rather than intolerance.”

She wrote her standout song, “In the River,” as a response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota. She’s shared it on the front lines of #NoDAPL rallies and at Standing Rock itself, as she stood alongside other activists in below-freezing temperatures. This song quickly became an anthem within the protest community, was awarded an Honesty Oscar for Best Activist Anthem, and was placed in Paste Magazine’s list of Modern Day Protest Songs, alongside respected artists like Kendrick Lamar and A Tribe Called Quest. Her protest anthem has since gained traction within the mainstream music world, and has stimulated the conversations she hopes to see within all communities.

With her upcoming album, Fight For You, Zaragoza continues her quest to feed the passion of protest. As part of that quest, she will allocate a portion of album sales to Indigenous rights organizations. She notes that this album will also be a reflection of her own personal fight toward self-discovery. She further elaborates, “This album is about finding yourself and finding your voice. It’s about getting older and realizing that you can make a difference if you so choose. We have the power to be on the right side of history, and to make sure the atrocities of history do not repeat.”


Fight For You was self-produced with the help of Grammy-nominated engineer Justin Hergett, and was recorded in New York City at Dubway Studios with Chris Montgomery. The album is slated for release on June 28th 2017, following her European tour. The album release show will be at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City on June 30th, 2017.

Joe Stanton with Larry Baumgartner

Joe Stanton is practically a household name on the Coast. The singer songwriter, currently based in Halfmoon Bay, has been a Coast resident for 20 years, entertaining visitors and locals alike at all the usual haunts. His philosophy of playing “wherever they’ll listen,” has seen him playing at festivals and stages across Canada and Europe, as well as some rather unusual venues. He was part of Via Rail’s Artist on Board program, playing two intimate sets a day to passengers travelling from Vancouver to Toronto. Then there was the time he played in a hot air balloon over the Swiss Alps. “That was really amazing,” says Stanton. “You get to go to all these places you never would have thought to go,” he says with generous understatement about being on the road.
