Ronhaar
Ronhaar
Ronhaar blends velvet, sweeping vocals with the grit of an overdriven groove tracked to tape. Cowboy-pop influenced tones pepper the 90's grooved folk-rock artist from Seattle. The songwriting is revealing; heart-breaking images become imaginable by way of honest, wailing cries. Dreamy vocals reminiscent of Paul Simon turn a darker shade as Ronhaar sings of convictions and hopes of change.

The solo project of Kyle “Ronhaar” Andrews began in 2016 with a reinvented purpose for his songwriting; he became obsessed with the folly within broken relationships. Though built on a folk-foundation, the strong pulse of the songs called for the “rough boys” rock & roll rhythm section. Sparse instrumentation saved room for the intimacy of Ronhaar’s songwriting. After a full year of gigging with his trio around Seattle and along the West Coast, a concrete groove took form. Steve Fisk, who effortlessly captured the esthetic of a classic Ronhaar live performance, produced the debut EP. “Ronhaar” releases December 15th, 2017.
John Dillon
John Dillon
John Dillon is a band in Seattle playing the songs of Dillon Sturtevant. Songs that had lain spinning on hard-drives or clinging to cassette for years, transforming and shifting over the course of life-changes (including a move out to Seattle), finally made it to the light of day when members of Tomten, Kithkin, and friends got together to perform them live, for others. The first record "The Lost Estate" coalesced out of this backlog of music and became sharpened, expanded, and will be available on vinyl LP from Plume Records in March 2016, and is already in the world on cassette from Never Anything Records. The single "Death Mask" will be released by Plume Records on January 22, 2016.

The album is a collection of pop songs, more or less, if a genre tag helps. Characterized by lush production, hi-lo-fi sounds, sincerity laced with humor, humor laced with melancholy, and a melodic bent. "The Lost Estate" was recorded in collaboration with engineer Andy Meyer in the summer of 2014 in Seattle. Live, the songs continue to transform and evolve in the hands of the players. John Dillon will be touring the Northwest and beyond in late March 2016.
