The Black Tones
The Black Tones
The Black Tones was started by twin siblings Eva and Cedric Walker. Born and raised in Seattle Washington and first generation Seattleites, their entire family is originally from New Orleans, LA which has helped shape their musical style of blues and rock n roll. Eva and Cedric are joined by blues bassist Giordan Montero, who has been with the group since their first show in 2011, and occasionally Robbie Little on bass as well. Their album "Mr. Mines" was chosen and featured on the Seattle Public Library Playback series as part of the 50 chosen artists representative of the Seattle music scene. In the summer of 2016, the music of The Black Tones was featured as part of the soundtrack for the indie movie, The Noise Made by People. set to release at several film festivals across the country, and earning their first movie credits. They were featured in the production of "Dear White People" in a total pf four sold out shows at the Theatre Off Jackson. The Black Tones have opened for bands such as NighTrain, Tacocat, Hot Panda, Mommy Long Legs, The Pauses, The Rockonigles, and many others. What they consider to be one of their biggest honors was getting to perform with the students of School of Rock Seattle as the students performed their song "Woman in Black" in a showcase the school put on dedicated to front women in rock n roll. You can also catch Eva in the upcoming film documentary Nice & Rough: Black Women in Rock produced by Sheila Jackson. This year, the band will make their first television debut on Band in Seattle which airs on CW 11. The Black Tones continue to amplify throughout the Northwest, headlining shows regularly all across the city.

The Black Tones are a goody bag of BLUES, PUNK and BLACK POWER.

Radical Hearts
Radical Hearts
To joyfully beat back the onset of ignorance and cruelty. Seattle rock-punk trio. Parzival Myr, Jake Nannery & Jesse Lee Honor.

Formed over time by longtime Seattle collaborators, Radical Hearts brings exuberant rock and relevant lyrics to the stage. Following a successful crowdfunding campaign, the band plans to release their debut EP summer/fall of 2016. Singing and writing songs is Parzival Myr, a player in the Seattle singer-songwriter and rock scene since 2010. Moving to Seattle after time in Nashville, Parzival has released two albums, toured the Northwest and West Coast, and developed a following playing music for blues-influenced social dances. Drumming, hollering, and clapping is Jesse Lee Honor, drummer also for Seattle roots rock outfit Heels To The Hardwood and collaborator since an infamous and raucous show at the Atlantic Crossing introduced the two. Rounding out the power trio is Jake Nannery bringing bass guitar and background vocals. Nannery is an alt-folk artist with a following in his own right, and organizer of previously mentioned raucous Atlantic Crossing show.
Norman Baker & Friends
Norman Baker & Friends
Traveling, creating, and sharing original live music are a few essential ingredients for the enrichment of humanity. Norman Baker and his band play homage to this fact by introducing new and old songs to as many communities as possible. Their new album utilizes undertones of pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, clarinet, and of course an onslaught of acoustic and electric guitars telling stories of loss, loss prevention, camping, driving without cell phones, childlike innocence, home towns, and walking till your shoes wear through.

Michael Wohl
Michael Wohl
"The Seattle musician eschews the city’s current penchant for pop folk and synthesized experiments in favor of some traditional plucking, sliding, and strumming...keeps it bare so you can hear the skill and jubilation of playing guitar rather than the heady study of the art form." - J Spicer, Tiny Mix Tapes

----------

Equally at home with screaming electric guitars as with delicate fingerpicked folk melodies, Michael Wohl seamlessly integrates free-roaming influences into his musical vision. An open ear on his many travels has provided a sonic palette that is somehow as concise as it is open-range, melting influences and landscapes into an eccentric and at times mysterious solo style.

Wohl is a musician with one ear to the ground and another to the voice within, ever-transported down twisting roads by his instincts, interests, and experience. Bending genres is no strange thing to him -- it in their synthesis in which his music comes alive. Always learning, shifting, and exploring (though difficult to peg) the music is anchored by touchstones of folk, country, rock and blues. He does not look back as a re-enactor of bygone eras, but inward, towards wherever the music takes him. Buy the ticket, take the ride.
