The Brooders are a Seattle-based alt-country band playing original music about the real Northwest. Dubbed "Northwest Americana", their songs are melodic, upbeat, and fun. Themes range from lumber-jack sexuality, ordering a gluten-free latte, and being kidnapped and taken to Burning Man. All original music, The Brooders play an intense range of both funny to heartfelt songs through acoustic guitars, warm vocals, fun banter, and legendary electric guitar solos. If you want to relate to the tears, joys, and values of Northwest America - listen to The Brooders. The Brooders originally came together in 2014 with singer-songwriter Jay Waltmunson and drummer Matt Galloway. Today the band includes Pete Nice on rip-roaring electric guitar and Alex Cohen on smooth bass.
