FM Collective
FM Collective is an indie music project, musicians collaborating on music to raise money in support of Musicares, musicians, and the music industry at large.

It features Mike collaborating with artists from bands including the Posies, Hey Marseilles, Cataldo, Fences, Heart, Creme Tangerine, Portugal the Man, Tennis Pro, Michael Kroll, Peter Benjamin, Zach Lombardo, Hemlock Pop and Shaprece. Damn, that's a lot of indie artists so check it out. And did we mention we are teaming up with the GRAMMYS(R) and a portion of all proceeds from concerts, CDs and merch go to MusiCares.
Hemlock Pop
Hemlock Pop
Ira Merrill has been part of the NW/Seattle music community quite a while, and has played in the bands Common Heroes, Pris, Megasapien, Super Deluxe, The Finger Guns, and Rain Light Fade among others. He has had the pleasure of working with fantastic producers including Martin Feveyear, Jack Endino, Jon Ervie, Terry Mattson, Don Farwell, and more.

Although Ira loves rock, punk rock, and many flavors of metal and has played in such bands, one day it dawned on him that left to his own devices what he naturally writes are simple, melodic pop tunes on an acoustic guitar. Upon deciding to embrace that fact, Hemlock Pop was born as Ira's solo, pop-friendly, organic experimental project.
The Breaking
The Breaking
The Breaking is an alt pop band from Portland, OR. Brainchild of a recovering folk musician who grew up listening to 70's and 90's rock, the band draws inspiration from an amalgam of classic records like The Bends, Rumors, Achtung Baby, Born to Run, and Recovering the Satellites.

They are celebrating the release of their new EP "Gravity's Pull". The 4-song concept record sheds the lo-fi and psych elements of their debut EP "Current Through the Wire" in favor of a more polished sound, incorporating synth pads and crunchy guitar hooks that recall the best of mid-90s pop rock.

Fronted by Adam Sweeney (Just Lions, The Cabin Project), the band features Tim Karplus (Alexander Tragedy, Redwood Son) on electric guitar, Jay Haser (Marv Ellis Band, Worth) on bass, and Chris Matthews (Doo Doo Funk Allstars) on drums.
