Dearly Departed with Raging Forest

Dearly Departed is a Seattle musical group. Their electrocuted, punchy sounds are secretly lyrical folk songs at heart. The group was founded by songwriter Noble Monyei acoustically in the spring of 2011, mainly around living rooms and campfires. As songs began to take shape, and instruments were plugged, one by one, into amplifiers, the sound of Dearly Departed emerged as the undulating, mixed genre, experimental project that both pleases and challenges ears and hearts alike.

The Shamaniacs

The music of the Shamaniacs defies classification. The creative endeavors of three song-writers with diverse interests weave a far-reaching web of influences. The majority of the music is rhythmic and dance-able, and its roots are in rock/pop, but there are also hints of funk, swing, folk rock, world beat, Gothic and grunge. The Shamaniacs have played a number of public performances mostly through grass roots connections.

Their music pulses with powerful rhythms which bring the audience to their feet and onto the dance floor. As rhythmic as they are, the songs are vocally oriented with two part harmonies for flavor. The diverse personalities of the members come through in the lyrics. Jon is a builder of community and the founder of the Healing Earth vegan food company. His songs express the trial of personal growth and a perennial hope for the future and all of our, as of yet unrealized, possibilities. Dave is a quiet mystic, an explorer of alternative life-styles, and physicist. Although his songs are often a little strange, they tend to center around the immediate personal experiences we all share. Peter has over twenty years experience in the NYC music scene, holding his own with Mayhem, the Fourth Floor (opening for Kiss and playing Woodstock II) and playing in countless other acts. His alternative rock sound balances nicely with the group as a whole. Nick drives the music's infectious grove with his artful drumming; he is undeniably on his way towards his goal of becoming a master drummer.

Buenos Diaz

Buenos Diaz

Alter ego of Austin’s Nick Diaz, Buenos Diaz turned quite a few heads in Texas with 2015’s Urbanized New Wave Texican, an EP whose title said it all. Its full-length followup, released late last year, is simply titled  Buenos Diaz and is just as descriptive. That’s about how fast the singer and songwriter has created his own distinctive aesthetic, yoking his prodigious guitar skills to an impressive array of styles: Lenny Kravitz-inspired funk rock, classic brown-eyed soul, and fuzzy power-pop gems like “1 2 3 4” and “San Fransymphony.” If you really want to know where Diaz’s heart lies, however, look no further than the big-hearted ballad “It Feels Good to Be a Texan” — or the closing track, “Muneca,” seven-plus minutes that maintains a jazzy groove as Diaz’s guitar explores places even Frank Zappa might never have imagined.

Happy and You Know It is the pop music project of Ohio native/Seattle resident Bill Palmer.  Since 2002, Palmer has self-released six full-length solo albums, a handful of EPs, and has appeared on several compilations.  He also plays guitar, sings, and co-writes in Seattle guitar-rock band Dogbreth, which has toured the United States extensively, and was a member of the Akron, Ohio punk duo Litter Party. 

Happy and You Know It, which consists of Palmer and a rotating cast of musicians, is a project built for self-exploration.  A fan of Mount Eerie, Jeff Tweedy, and Elliott Smith, Palmer began making CD-Rs of his songs for his friends in 2004. An obsessive and unrelenting writing ethic led him to a list of approximately 30 songs for 'He,' whittled down and recorded in complete solitude over a two week period at his home in South Seattle in the winter of 2017.  The result is a shimmering, understated, deeply contemplative record tackling subjects of masculinity, monogamy, and class.

Hummingbull

hummingbull represents the musical endeavors of Seattle native singer-songwriter Tim Smith. As Smith begins playing, the audience becomes aware of something enticing and engaging about his style and performance. His plucking and strumming of acoustic strings combined with an earnest folky voice and well-written words quickly set him apart from other musicians. A lyric-centric songwriter, Smith's use of syntax, semantics, and literary devices will catch the attention of those who listen closely. There are layers to investigate within his often seemingly simplistic songs. He urges the audience to think deep, to ask questions. His writing explores deep subjects ranging from existentialism, religion and faith, love and loss, addiction, ego and identity. He believes emotion makes us human, and his goal is to express emotion through his songs. His songs are often personal, raw, and honest. His hope is that those who listen will be able to relate, understand, and connect on different levels. Fans of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Elliott Smith, Conor Oberst, or Daniel Johnston will surely find something sincere and interesting here.

Alki Jones

It’s hard to put a finger on Alki Jones’ sound. 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.”
