FASIV with Mariposa Avenue

FASIV is the music of Frank Abreau Salazar IV. The  project started as an outlet for Frank to release his experimental home recordings and other songs that didn't quite fit with his then San Francisco based rock band, Strange Hotel. As Strange Hotel disbanded, FASIV became the main musical vehicle for the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. 

Since becoming Frank’s primary musical outlet, FASIV has released two retro rock records through Bad Reputation records based out of Paris, France and has toured the west coast extensively. Other highlights include opening for classic rock legends Boston and Eric Burdon, as well as a SXSW, Red Gorilla, and NAAM showcase.

After many genre and line up changes, FASIV currently performs as a solo singer song writer in the vein of Nick Drake, Elliott Smith and Conor Oberst. Now based out of Seattle, Washington, FASIV is in the the process of recording his latest album.

Güero Brown with Lucas Tayne

A Michigan native, Güero Brown is an independent musician and graduate of Western Michigan University, where he studied foreign languages and audio engineering. Travel and literature have played a significant role in Güero’s artistic development and musical taste. After a period of years based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Güero took time away from music in 2014 to live in Latin America and find new inspirations. In early 2017, Güero returned to the studio to record a new full-length album that was released in late 2018. Many of the songs on the self-titled album were written in the southern hemisphere and feature contributions from various collaborators in different parts of the U.S. In 2018, Güero also Güero relocated to Seattle to promote the new album and to continue creating new music.

Lucas Tayne is an American singer-songwriter from Seattle, Washington. He spent his formative years playing guitar and drums in local indie rock and punk bands The Lighter Side of Epic and The Red Trousers before expanding his influences to bluegrass, americana, and jazz. Tayne has lived and gigged in Portland, OR and Boston, MA as well as spending a year in Shanghai performing with the hip hop-funk fusion group The Immigrants.

Upon returning home in 2016 Tayne quickly established himself as a staple of the Seattle music scene and recorded his debut album, A Point A Round, with producer and pianist Tim Kennedy. Praised by Divide and Conquer Music for its “expressive, thoughtful lyrics, unique arrangements and interesting phrasing” the album showcases Tayne’s instinct as a composer and lyricist. Influenced by classic jazz and rock recordings the album was recorded in less than 5 hours with no over overdubs and captures the intimate feel that the songwriter brings to his live performances.

While playing frequently around the North West Tayne is working on his sophomore album due out in late 2018. In addition to his solo efforts he also collaborates regularly with singer-songwriter Sarah O’Dea.

A STORY

How I Happened Upon a Song

I was hiking in the mountains with a group of good friends. A contemplative lull had fallen upon the group and the conversation had petered out. After a couple minutes of walking silently, I realized that two lyrical sentences were running through my head over and over again. Before I knew it, whole paragraphs were streaming out of my brain into a song. It felt like I had accidentally happened upon a gust of inspiration that was threatening to move along if I did not hold on to it. I dropped my pack and frantically tried to capture the words in pen. In a matter of minutes the song was complete. I have not touched or edited those words since this moment of inspiration. Yet it was not until many times playing it upon returning to civilization that I realized the depth of what that song represented to me.

 

This is why I write music. It lets my life have a dimension of chaos that is beyond my comprehension. It lets me access a side of my subconscious that, through diligence and creative effort, I can release into the world as music.

 

I write music because I am captivated by the process of inspiration.

I perform music because I love watching people feel my words in their heart.

Mark Brainard

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.

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.

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!"

"His stare is equal to his pursuit of logic; a surefire execution like a double tap to the chest; a headshot for confirmation. Only the finality of things such as death or worse yet - slavery - beg the romantic (and momentary) reconciliation of a life lived in a pursuit of love…and it is only in the throes of music; upon which we confide our heart's fantasies, secrets, truths…that our life is suddenly worth living


This is where Kris Van Dyke resides; where is truest self breathes; where he experiences love; where you can witness his soul through a medium of guitar and voice


Tim Gillman plays the drums/backup vocals."

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.”

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.
