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.

VOICES RAISED: Some Things Gotta Be Said #6

Community matters. Our nation's political affairs are undergoing change. And now, some things gotta be said. Please join a roster of Seattle singer-songwriters on Monday, June 19th at 6:00pm for an evening of songs about our life and times. There will be topical songs about the state of our country. And there will be songs celebrating our nation's diversity. This is going to be a political night with heartfelt expressions of both concern and community. All are welcome. None are excluded. But I would expect a certain progressive sensibility to the evening of music. Don't agonize. Organize. Be the resistance. In the spirit of Sixties hootenannies, let's raise our voices in song. Come join your neighbors for live local music that lives in the truth. Hosted by David Guilbault.

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.

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.

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

Cityscape is a new project from guitarist & singer Ryan McLean. Ryan is getting ready to start his junior year at the University of Washington.

Craig Marker // Thedrifterluke

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.

Thedrifterluke

Reminiscent of the great songwriters with a fresh and captivating perspective both lyrically and melodically, Thedrifterluke's songwriting draws you in with a clear expressive tone and thought provoking and introspective lyrics. One listen through his catalog and you're sure to find a new classic.

Lumphead Album Release Party

Lumphead Album Release Party

Lumphead is a folky singer-songwriter from the Midwest who reveals her soul through the depth of her music. Initially inspired by the slow, finger-picking stylings of Iron & Wine and the playful vocals of Regina Spektor, her style emerged after performing as a jazz vocalist in college, where her last name earned her the nickname "Lumphead." After collaborating with artists influenced by experimental rhythms and melodies, Lumphead developed a sound that is somewhat dreamlike, swaying between playfulness and raw emotion, allowing listeners to escape, if only for a moment, to somewhere inside themselves.
