Waking Things
Waking Things
"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.

Starting in 2014 as a highly conceptual project that combined vocalist and guitarist, Chris Sicard's love for literature and fascination with abstract and the macabre.
"Writing cryptic lyrics or poetry has always been interesting to me. My favorite classes in school were always creative writing and English because the stories and words allowed me that oft-sought form of escapism. My hope is to draw people in to my stories to help them find that sort of escape."

As is seemingly customary for local independent bands, Waking Things has gone through multiple members. Beginning in a garage as a 2 piece guitar and drum group and slowly evolving into a 4 piece, piano driven ensemble. However, with the recent departure of their secondary vocalist and piano player, it has become clear that they have found their true strengths as a triangle. With Seattle native Matt Chadwick on drums and Colorado transplant Brian Ray on bass, their dynamic and songwriting has matured,
"For a while I was using the group as a surrogate for personal growth, but as time has gone by they seem to run parallel".

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.
