Hybrid Jesus // Djime

Djime is a Seattle local experimental electronic duo recently formed by songwriters Ian & James.

Breakbeat jazz, progressive & alternative rock, electronic drum & bass, IDM, post-rock & hardcore punk, dub, and also random weird noises are all our influences. Let's get weird.

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.

Niagara Moon // Craig Marker // History of Time

Niagara Moon is a band led by singer-songwriter/producer and self-proclaimed total music nerd Thomas Erwin. Originally formed in Massachusetts and now based in Seattle, their music combines the rich melodicism of Brian Wilson and Harry Nilsson with the modern indie sound of artists like Ben Folds and Of Montreal. Catchy melodies and mellow rhythms abound.

 I began playing acoustic guitar in College. And writing folk and chill acoustic songs while living in Colorado. When I moved to Seattle I began messing more with electronic and hip hop. Here are a few videos of mine. Both Acoustic and Electronic.

Bill & Jon are a duo based in Seattle Washington.  Bill plays the drums and percussion with Jon 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 Jon'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.

Jared Hauser’s sunshine rock band Castle Dwellers has called Seattle home for the past 5 years. Their most recent release – a four song self-titled EP – was recorded at legendary London Bridge Studio, and highlights the band’s knack for catchy guitar hooks and head-bopping melodies. When he’s not working on the next Castle Dwellers tune, Jared likes to put down the distortion pedal and pick up acoustic instruments such as mandolin and sitar.

Heather Edgley

Heather Edgley is known for her contemporary style and ethereal voice that captivates audiences with the vulnerability of her tone and lyrics. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Heather Edgley is a local Seattle Singer Songwriter and pianist. She has been song writing since the age of seven and is a self-taught pianist. Drawing influences from Pop, Folk, Indie, Contemporary, and Classical music, her songs are crafted through a process of natural expression and careful thoughtfulness about the human experience, existentialism, life, love, death, and the struggles we encounter. Heather Edgley writes about the real, the raw, the beautiful, the ugly, the hopeful, and the despair we feel. She believes uninhibited expression is the most genuine way to connect us all through her music. Her songs reveal light-hearted commentaries on the human experience as well as the secrets of her soul. She writes of the sensitive topics we often don’t talk about in order to connect with her listeners on the deepest level, reminding us, even just for a moment, that we are not alone in our struggle, fight, or feelings.

Sarah St. Albin

Sarah St. Albin is a singer, pianist, and songwriter based in Seattle, WA. At the piano, her ballads are reminiscent of the emotional and compositional complexity of Tori Amos and the intimate warmth of singer-songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez. Her first commercial release, Small Voice, has been described as blending "upbeat and sentimental pop" with "something dark-and-synthy." Think Fiona Apple meets Sara Bareilles, but Tori won't let go. Almost all of St. Albin's work builds from the piano, though she will be assembling a regular band soon.

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.

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.

Whitherward // The Honeyville Rascals

Whitherward

Indie-Folk Touring Duo.

Whitherward is the partnership between singer-songwriters Ashley E. Norton and Edward A. Williams. Founded in Nashville in December of 2013, the duo has built a catalog of varied, intricate songs that explore the effects of the human condition. Growing tired of the music industry warfare, Ash and Ed set off to play music they love for people who love music. In 2015, the duo threw their belongings into storage and never looked back. They grew into full-time touring artists, embarking on several cross-country non-stop loops, while releasing four EP’s from their Subaru. Now, with the long distance addition of band members Stephanie Groot on violin and Patrick Hershey on upright bass, the group settled in Phoenix for two months to produce their first full length album, completely independently. “The Anchor,” crowd-funded without the platforms of kickstarter, indie-gogo or go-fund-me, was produced, engineered written and recorded by Whitherward at Gold Capp Studio’s, with the help of Tony King on drums and studio owner, Thomas Max Massano, on assistant engineering. They’ve been compared to a modern-day Simon & Garfunkle, Penny & Sparrow, The Civil Wars, and influences of rock, folk, jazz, singer/songwriter and trip-hop. The hard-hitting lyrical style, supported by thunderous vocals, string sections and dueling guitars, brings a new dimension to the indie-folk world. “Whitherward” is an old English word meaning “In which direction?” So we ask you…Whitherward leith the way home?

The Honeyville Rascalls

Whether it's music from early 1900s Hawaii, jazz standards from the Great American Songbook, or their own original songs about everything from scenic road trips to mysterious murders, the Honeyville Rascals are playing what they love. Their music is rooted in the traditions of jazz, blues and folk. The duo weaves together vocal melodies & harmonies accompanied by ukuleles, banjo and percussion. Back in 2008, after meeting in a workshop while endeavoring to improve their ukulele skills, Sunga Rose and Michael Alexander began putting together a list of the songs they always wanted to play. Their separate paths of musical interest led each of them to a love for early jazz. Several years later, they boast an eclectic repertoire which includes popular material culled from 10 decades of songwriting as well as many tunes of their own.

Lumbercat // Timberfoot // Cubbage

Lumbercat // Timberfoot // Cubbage

“These guys have more chemistry than any of my relationships”  -A Lumbercat fan after a show in Riverside, CA

What is Lumbercat? A question as complex as “What is Love?” Or maybe it’s a question as simple as asking “what do the words ‘felidae’ and ‘hypercarnivore’ mean to each other?” and a quick shout out to god (google) would reveal that cat’s eat a ridiculous amount of meat. Which is quite unlike a bonafide Lumbercat (most of which are hyperherbivores) because that’s a great way to solve world hunger. Ask god (google).

All five members of Lumbercat grew up in Northern California, which defines the music and the musicians. Alex and Emmanuel Lemnah (brothers, clearly) grew up in the mountains with organist Caleb Collins, and music overlapped almost as much as mountain biking, creek hopping, and general boony-whomping-ruckus-raising-fun. Nick Simons, on bass, lived just south of these lads and was in the same fourth grade class as Caleb. Neither remembers the other. Aris Andrews, guitar, lived north in the fiery plains of doom which continues to inspire his enveloping palate of melodies.

After a few years performing as a fan-favorite college band in Chattanooga TN, Lumbercat chose to spread its paws to new horizons. Like any young life-form, the journey must be slow and taken with caution. So they embarked on their first-ever summer tour. With the generous support of fans, friends, and family, they purchased a trailer, found a van, and left their hometown of Chattanooga….aaaaannd were on the road for the next 4.5 months. They performed up and down the West Coast of the US. Though the venues varied from the Whisky A-Go-Go (Hollywood) to The Cafe Racer (Seattle), the streets of Fisherman’s Warf in San Fransisco to Main Stage at Joshua Fest in the tiny mountain town of Quincy, the response remained “YAAS!!! Give us MORE!!!”

Lumbercat is more than the average indie rock band. Yes, they are fully independent and self produced/managed. Yes, they wear clothes from the thrift store and try to bring back a better era. Yes, they play songs that blend through rock, blues, folk, reggae, jazz, rap, and more. But there is much more to them as people, which makes trite labels useless. They’re hard workers (more than three weeks of their summer tour was spent “volunteering” as a forestry crew in the mountains above Bouder, CO making the land fire-proof). They’re people who think (maybe it’s environmentally efficient to not eat meat. Maybe our use of alcohol and drugs should be re-thought. Maybe there’s a real Spirit/Force/God to be connected to, not google). Primarily, they’re out to have a good time, which usually ends up happening in the outdoors (climbed a 14er recently? Wanna set up a 5.10 crack? Found some good class IV rapids?).

Lumbercat plays its own brand of Woodroots-Groove Funky-Party-Indie-Rock music. They will always put on a show that produces smiles and enough sweat to be a tad gross. Their work ethic and passion will only allow them more success. Be sure to note: there’s no stopping Lumbercat.

"Lumbercat is a special Gem in the music community.  Their blend of Root Rock is intoxicating. You'd be hard pressed to find a group of musicians that make your feel like your old friends, sitting at a warm meal during the holiday season. While enjoying one of their performances you'll instantly want more.  More of their music. More of their personalities. And more of the Hope and Joy that is obvious they've found".  -Aaron Diello, Joshua Fest, Director

Mark Brainard // John Miller // Ben Barber // Luke Culburtson

Mark Brainard is fresh to the Seattle scene. Armed with strident vocals, biting guitar, and an all or nothing mentality, Brainard sings it like it is. Drawing evident influence from 60s Rock and Folk legends, but contributing generously to the conversation with lyrics that demand to be heard. With topics ranging from a shark attack, to divorce. Mark Brainard is a lyrical contortionist, and is worthy of your loving.  

John Miller may not be a household name just yet, but his booming melodic voice holds all of the gloom of dusk mixed with the hope of dawn. A falsetto that can silence any room, it sounds like folk, but feels like soul. Based out of Portland, Oregon the Gloom/Folk singer & songwriter captures a unique perspective on overcoming a shadowy past while emerging into and embracing the responsibilities of a promising adulthood. His new record Pretty Little Bird explores the mysterious and often times bewildering complexities of human emotion. Highly regarded as a must-see performer John Miller attracts crowds up and down the West Coast.

Jakob Singer

Jakob moved to Seattle in January of 2010; where he joined up with Jacob Yackshaw and Peter Reni and formed the Relentless Rhythm Machine. After playing to empty bars across Seattle for a year, the band joined forces with the very talented Tanner and Amy McInerney, and The Weatherside Whiskey Band was born. WWB's boot stomping rhythms, catchy melodies, and strong group of friends and family soon had them packing Seattle's most famous venues. Weatherside has put out two albums of original tunes and a series of music videos in the short time they have been together, with no plan of slowing till they reach the top.

Jakob has been recording bands in makeshift bedroom studios for as long as he has been playing music. A little elbow grease and an unfinished basement in his West Seattle home provided the perfect opportunity to move the gear into a real studio. After a year of construction Ship Wreckords opened its doors in early 2014.
