Todd and The Toots

Todd and the Toots is a Seattle based acoustic reggae and soul group. Our music is played on acoustic instruments; Guitar, mandolin, upright bass, percussion and drums with rich vocal harmonies. All members of the band play in local bluegrass groups, and while this may influences our sound in some small way, there is nothing about the music that you would call bluegrass.  As Brogan likes to say... "It's baby making music"

Sandy Dodge // Zauso // Hannah Abrams

SANDY DODGE


An acoustic guitar performance that you can stomp your feet to. Sandy's playing is as much drumming as it is picking, as much folk as it is blues, and as much tragedy as it is ecstasy. 

ZAUSO


Zauso is the solo project of Seattle-based musician Zach Horton.

HANNAH ABRAMS: 


Singer-songwriter Hannah Abrams is a Seattle-based artist, recognizable by her pop-infused melodies and catchy piano grooves. Drawn by the mountains and ready for something new, the Ithaca College School of Music grad (originally from Newark, Delaware) headed west with her keyboard and guitars.

After two years of playing solo shows and singing backup, Abrams teamed up with Dylan Fant of 1 Shot Studio to begin working on her debut recording project, which would feature a full band and six original songs. Today I Feel, the 2019 EP from Abrams, comes from the growing pains of learning to treat herself with the same firm kindness that she shows others. At times bright and hopeful, other times bitter and protective, the record is brought to life through a rotation of instruments and Abrams’s clear vocals that are sure to catch your ear.

Amsellem // Mike Simmons // The Drifter Luke

"Amsellem", which translates from Hebrew as "People of Peace", is the musical project created by Daniel Amsellem. The project started with an acoustic guitar, dynamic microphone and a loop station, and carried on to a full set of instruments with unique arrangements and intimate while powerful songs that come from true feeling.

"In/Out" is Amsellem's debut album. This concept album is formed out of 10 songs that split into 3 parts of a story – betraying trust, hurting, and reconciling.

The album is a collection of experiences and memories from a 5-year relation between himself and a lost love. starting with anger and disappointment and ending with a catharsis and peace of mind, the album truly depicts a whirlpool of emotions as it goes on.

Most of the album was produced and recorded by Amsellem at his childhood bedroom in Ashdod, Israel with the rest recorded in Tel Aviv by much appreciated musicians.

Mike Simmons

"Alternative Rock singer/songwriter Mike Simmons began writing songs and poems when he was down-and-out looking for viable ways to make money. Writing was the first to catch and Simmons began reading his poems to kids on the street and dancers on the late shift at a strip club where his friends worked when it was slow. This led to meeting a group of musicians one night who recognized his ability to create and urged him to take writing and music more seriously suggesting he try actually saying something people could understand. In the years since, Simmons has developed into an emotive songwriter who has played his music across America in venues ranging from clubs and halls to gas stations and adult video stores. His writing skills and melodic instincts quickly drew notice from emerging producers in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles who hired him to groom the artists they were recording. During this period, Simmons began drifting into the fine arts and contemporary subculture communities in Cambridge and New York. His writing began to explore the thin line between the gritty life he lived each day and the glamorous one he was beginning to embark on in the evenings in the company of debutantes and artists on the rise. This tension led to Simmons' debut album Sunburn, a ten-song effort tracked in two days that narrates Simmons' early days living in Los Angeles. Sunburn sings of days spent with the almost-stars of the new LA and nights spent with junkies, prostitutes, and other street people if only, according to Simmons, because they slept as infrequently as he did. Currently in Seattle, Summer 2019 will see Simmons dropping a series of new singles (made in the comfort of his studio in the attic of an old porn shop) while continuing to play shows, develop bands, and deliver readings of his original works. Mike Simmons is one of the most important emerging songwriters currently working anywhere. No mere scene-maker, Simmons seems to have the constant grip on "cool" and rare ability to recognize things with true staying power, sometimes even before they appear to happen."

The Drifter Luke

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.T

Veronica Malki // Socorra // Adira Sharkey

Soulful, enchanting songs, rich vocal stylings, and powerful, magical presence. Seattle's Veronica Malki's first love and favorite feeling is singing. Yet, not until the age of 21 did she pick up the guitar and begin to write songs, studying in Granada, Spain at the time. Three years later, she assembled a band in San Jose, CA and recorded her first studio album, Listening (2010). In 2012, Veronica transplanted to Seattle, WA and practiced professionally as a birth doula while continuing to sing locally and taking root in the surrounding creative communities. She has opened for The Wild Reeds, Stelth Ulvang (The Lumineers), and twice for John Craigie. Veronica's 2018 studio release, To The Sound From The Bay, is a solo EP  recorded at BOC Studios in Seattle. It is available on everywhere!

Socorra is a singer-songwriter from the San Jose, California. She is a drummer turned guitar player, bringing her blues-driven indie-rock sound to the Bay Area. Suffering from stage fright at a young age, she didn’t start performing in front of people until she was 18 years old when she was recruited to be in an acapella group her freshman year of college. Throughout her college years she explored songwriting and performing more before joining the Peace Corps in Morocco in 2010. During her volunteer service she had opportunities to perform all over Morocco, discovering ways to connect with people through music.      

After serving in the Peace Corps, she took an internship at an independent record label where she was more inspired to step out from behind the scenes and put out her own music. She released her EP, Break in 2017 and has opened up for acts like Blues Traveler and Fantastic Negrito. Heavily influenced by everything from Motown and Led Zeppelin to HAIM and Sheryl Crow, she strives to bring soulful performances to every show.

Adira Sharkey is a singer-songwriter from San Jose, CA who blends percussive acoustic instrumentation with punchy, poignant lyricism and rhythmic vocal arrangements. She shares commonalities with the politically-charged, radically [and sometimes brutally] honest female singer-songwriters that came before her. Adira is a raw, unfiltered storyteller who is not afraid to lead her audience to the darker side of love and longing. A traveler at heart, she’s been described as "a time traveller from the dust bowl" with a "bluesy folk" sound - picking up folk melodies from Spanish immigrants in the Pacific Northwest along with finger-picking tricks from ex-pats in Israel.

Natalie Paige // Megan Larson // Hannah Abrams

Natalie Paige is an American singer-songwriter/guitar-player. With a focus on finger-style guitar, Paige wraps contemporary folk with jazz influence to lay down foundations for lyrical impact.

In 2016, Paige released her debut E.P. “Piece of Me”, featuring Rhode Island-based multi-instrumentalist Zak Castle (lead guitar and bass).

Shortly after, Paige moved to Seattle, WA to pursue her career and met local singer-songwriter Anthony Lee Phillips and collaborated to produce her second release, “West Coast E.P”. Both releases are available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, and other streaming services.

Her next album, “The Way We Carry On”, to be released in 2019.

As a songwriter native to the Pacific Northwest, Megan Larson has been performing up and down the west coast for over a decade. Her songs are infused with folk, soul, and pop sensibilities, weaving together personal stories of loss, tragedy, strength, and perseverance through honest, relatable lyrics and a voice all-her-own.  

Hannah Abrams is a Seattle-based singer-songwriter recognizable by her spell-binding melodies and catchy piano grooves.

Growing up in Newark, Delaware, Abrams began playing piano at age five and loved the music of Mozart and Scott Joplin. Meanwhile, her dad played her legends like Stevie Wonder and Elton John plus the latest from emerging artists like No Doubt and Sara Bareilles. By the time she was in middle school, she’d become an avid songwriter and already had one failed attempt to start a band. Shy and a bit of an outcast, Hannah threw herself into singing and playing for her school choir, where she built confidence over the years. During her senior year, Abrams retreated further into music, busying herself with college auditions to distract from an abusive boyfriend and her parents divorce. It was during her time studying music education at Ithaca College in central New York that Abrams was first encouraged by a mentor to pick up guitar and to pursue performing.

Drawn by the mountains and ready for something new, Abrams packed up her Corolla and headed west. Following a mentally turbulent first winter in Seattle, she uncovered her longtime denial of being gay and began to discover a more uplifting sound. After two years of playing solo shows and singing backup around the city, Abrams self-released an indie-pop EP, 2019’s Today I Feel, featuring a full band and six original songs.

Like a Rocket

LIKE A ROCKET

A bloody mess of American music smashed together by a tanker truck stinking of oil, gasoline and carnival fried dough. Shit sister, it's music, so stop asking so many questions. By the way you look a little over dressed, take off that sweater and let me buy you a beer.

 

Often described as beautiful pairing of Levon Helm and Roger Waters, Like A Rocket mix great Alt-Country and 70s stoner psychedelia to bake a blisteringly funky creamy dreamy cake. A serious love of dreaming in rhythm, the songs all have something to move your body or engage your head. The lyrics are extremely personal, about broken relationships with mates, lovers, and the surrounding world of politics and dissatisfaction. You find yourself grooving along while picking up on choruses that speak to the world around you, particularly if you happen to being pulling twenty to life for a crime your ex actually committed.



Gray is an award wining songwriter getting nods from heavy hitters such as NPR's nationally broadcast Mountain Stage and the Carolina Theater Songwriter of The Year award.

Fox and Bones

Fox and Bones are the modern day Bonnie and Clyde, if Bonnie and Clyde had driven a Volvo and played folk-pop music. Based in Portland, OR, these internationally touring sweethearts aren't your average duo. Rather than simply documenting their experiences in song, Sarah Vitort and Scott Gilmore write from the perspective of quasi-fictional characters. There’s Fox, a down-and-out it girl, and Bones, a rootless orphan bad boy with a heart of gold. The two fall for each other, decide to hit the road, and never look back. The characters, as well as their real-life counterparts, use music as the canvas on which they paint a new life together that defies traditional relationship roles and life goals. Their music is ripe with vocal harmonies that pull at the heartstrings and a complex, at times metaphysical, lyrical landscape. Each element serves their stories of a life lived on the road, in pursuit of a dream that most never have the courage to chase. Live, they give audiences a peek into their world and challenge them to believe in life, adventure, and modern love.

Jed Crisologo with Jason Riemath

Jed Crisologo is a soulful Seattle singer- songwriter, who mixes Americana,Punk Rock and Jazz influences into heartfelt, catchy, honest tunes.

Jed will be supported by Jason Riemath

Homegrown here in the Northwest, Jason has been a singer songwriter locally for almost 14 years as both a solo artist and as the former frontman of Mealfrog.  Ranging from grunge, to folk, to bits of reggae and blues, Jason finds inspiration in all music and continues to experiment with new sounds.  Driven by pure love of music and the journey that it takes him on, you will find yourself taking a break from reality and just enjoying the moment he wants to share with everyone in the room.

Matthew Stewart

"One of the most mysterious and beautiful things we can experience is art. That said, the art in which I'm married to and completely obsessed with is Music." MS

Matthew Stewart is an acclaimed Recording/Touring Artist based in San Francisco California.

With thousands of records sold, North American/European tours under his belt and constantly surrounding himself with incredible people in music (most recently working with legendary Producer Joe Chiccarelli, Beck, Jack White, U2, The Shins etc) for his latest release "Sex Was Gold") Matthew Stewart is just starting to hit his stride as an artist. Or as he puts it-

"Music is everything to me. It's what I wake up thinking about, it's around during the day and it's certainly around at night, It's like a mosquito that doesn't bite. I've been involved in music ever since I can remember to some degree, but it hasn't been until recently that I think I'm starting to shape songs the way I'd like to hear them and write the kind of music that I’d like to listen to "Sex Was Gold" was the beginning for me where I was really proud of the final outcome of what we did. This new EP “Moving On” we're currently working on is even more in tune with where I am musically now I believe. I'm very excited to see how people receive this, I know it’s some of the best work I’ve ever produced.”

Matthew is currently in studio finishing an EP that is set to be released 3/11/19 and will be touring nationally/internationally 2019 in support of it.

His music can frequently be heard in Radio and Television and continues to perform in some of the most esteemed concert venues throughout North America and Europe developing a loyal local and international following.

Tyler Gilbert with Ericka Corban

Saskatchewan based rock group,  Tyler Gilbert has always striven to be a voice for the overlooked, the ones who never quite fit in, the lone kid, the underdog. From his 2008 debut EP "Vos" to 5 albums later,  none of his work has been more intentionally pointed at them more than his upcoming release "Underdog" (2019). Over the years his sound has evolved from a more folk sound to hard rock. He’s done national tours all over his native country, from Vancouver and Edmonton to Toronto and Montreal; performed at countless major festivals, including the Ohio State Fair,  Burlington's Sound of Music, Canadian Country Music Award Festival, World Women’s Curling Championship, May Run Music Fest, Winnipeg Fringe Festival, International Folk Alliance and the Canadian Western Agribition; done national tours of the U.S. from LA and New York and everywhere in-between;  performed live on Global TV and CTV while his music hit the playlists of top stations all across Canada and Sirius XM. Endorsed by Clayton USA Picks and Shubb Capos.

His upcoming album titled "Underdog" will showcase a new direction in Tyler's music realm, that of a harder, edgier rock sound. Now backed by band mates Mark Ennis on drums and Rob Dakiniewich on bass, performing as a trio. The first single "Need Love & Shelter" hit the airwaves of Canadian rock radio in the spring of 2018 to much success. The second single "Ghost Behind Your Mind" is scheduled for a Nov 16, 2018 release.

Harris Face with Fond Farewell

Harris Face is a folk-rock-blues artist based in Seattle, WA.  Percussive guitar, harmonica, and emotive rock dominate his music, drawing comparisons with an acoustic Springsteen, the Counting Crows, and modern roots crusaders like William Elliott Whitmore.  Sprinkling light banter between his folk ramblings and blues confessionals, Harris Face has a voice that is at times nostalgic and hopeful, at times serious and ironic, but always full of the dreams and withdrawals of a DC political junkie.

Emerging from a bustling Washington, DC singer-songwriter scene, (and featuring at the Kennedy Center, the Capital City Showcase, and Rock & Roll Hotel) Harris has toured the east coast and Midwest with Adrian Krygowski and Amber Dutton, and shared the stage with Brothers Lazaroff and The Vespers.

Country for Syria

Country for Syria

COUNTRY FOR SYRIA IS AN ISTANBUL-BASED INTERNATIONAL MUSIC COLLECTIVE. WITH MEMBERS HAILING FROM THE US, SYRIA, TURKEY, CZECH REPUBLIC, AND FRANCE, IT'S MISSION IS TO HELP REFUGEES AND THOSE AFFECTED BY CONFLICT.

The band blends traditional Middle Eastern music with American Country music. The band’s earnings contribute aid to Syrian refugees and those affected by conflict around the world. They recently returned from their first US tour, sponsored by the Giving Hunger the Blues Festival. 

Country music has its origins in the American Civil War. Now Syria is in the midst of its own civil war. Their music draws parallels between the musical and lyrical themes of Middle Eastern and American Country music to connect personal experiences of conflict and migration from around the world. Both the Country and Arabic musical traditions share themes of migration, love, loneliness, longing for home, patriotism, faith, and relationship to place. Both tell stories through narrative ballads, through pastoral meditations, by praising folk heroes and through the idealization of a lost way of life. 

Country for Syria's musical mission  is one of cultural diplomacy and mutual aid. While in today's climate, Middle Eastern and American cultures are often seen to as polar opposites, Country for Syria seeks to break down those stereotypes through their music, showing how much we really have in common. Money raised online and at benefit concerts goes to refugees and people affected by the conflict. They do this by providing money directly to refugees, and by playing shows whose proceeds go to organizations whose mission is to help those affected by the conflict. They partner with organizations such as Small Projects Istanbul ,  Ad Dar Center , and Clowns Without Borders . The band also makes regular trips to refugee camps and conflict areas to deliver supplies and donations while playing concerts in solidarity.

Bug Hunter with Dravus House

Bug Hunter with Dravus House

John Wozniak of Marcy Playground says Bug Hunter is “Relentlessly Clever... AWESOME”

Focused on turning mundane moments into emotion-packed tunes, Bug Hunter’s style is often compared to 21 Pilots, Blink-182, and Death Cab For Cutie - but they have carved out a niche that fans can’t easily classify.

Dravus House is an alternative folk duo consisting of Elena Loper and Cooper Stoulil based in Seattle. In Dravus House’s music, Loper’s vocals, songwriting, and guitar playing weave together with Stoulil’s emotive electric guitar picking in the style of folk duos such as Gillian Welch/David Rawlings and the Milk Carton Kids. According to sound engineer Johnny Bregar, “Loper’s unique melodic sensibility is reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and trans-Atlantic modality”

Alki Jones

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.”
