The Mondegreens
The Mondegreens
The Mondegreens is a rock group based in Seattle, WA churning out a new take on “California Soul”: song-based rock & roll, infused with R&B, psychedelia, and folk. With an infectious, harmony-driven sound that combines the raw passion of The Avett Brothers with the diverse soundscapes of Grizzly Bear, their sought-after live shows can “run from dusty, shambling Americana to bright and modern in a single set.” Before nestling into the Pacific Northwest in 2015, The Mondegreens spent three years forging solid bonds with audiences and refining their live performances across the western U.S. The boys toured constantly, playing strings of shows that invariably included the entire West Coast, but also extended from San Antonio, TX to Bozeman, MT, from Tucson, AZ to Jackson, WY.

As California valley natives, Jack Knight (guitar/vocals), Russell Rabut (guitar/vocals), and David Friedlander (bass/vocals), began collaborating in 2007, coming together around roots music, vocal harmony, and songwriting. Scotty Jenkins (percussion) was recruited prior to their 2015 tour to Austin’s SXSW, completing their current lineup. As at ease at an intimate house concert as they are on a festival stage, The Mondegreens continue to capture the attention of audiences of all shapes, ages, and sizes.
The Hasslers
The Hasslers
The Hasslers, Americana/ Alt-Country troubadours, have been spending the last year in the Pacific Northwest, getting their feet wet in the big city music scene, playing venues weekly in Seattle and Portland, and most importantly, recording their full-length album, State Center.

This new 12 song LP documents their move, both musically and lyrically, through homesick blues songs, lovelorn country songs, and a new turn into roots-rock with horn arrangements, funky guitar licks, and wailing organ riffs.

As winners of the emerging artist contest, they played the main stage at Red Ants Pants Music Festival last year, and will taking their show on the road in Summer '16. Recently they've been seen playing alongside acts such as Blitzen Trapper, the Cave Singers, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, the Gypsy Lumberjacks, the Black Lillies, the Heartless Bastards, and many more!
Everson Pines
Everson Pines
Everson Pines is a Seattle based band founded by Trevor Lyon and Karl Benitez, two childhood friends who simply decided to start jamming one day. What started as fun aimless jam sessions, has grown into an obsession for classic rock riffs and pop melodies. With a double singer/songwriter contribution, every song has a unique flavor ranging from melodic and heartfelt to crunchy and hard-rocking. We harken back to the days when musicians plugged into their amps and let their axes do the talking. At an Everson Pines show, you’ll be sure to have a good time, while hearing a mix of familiar sounds from bands you probably love like we do: Drive-By Truckers, Wilco, and The Band.

With the help of producer Geoff Stanfield (Sun Kil Moon, Grace Weber, Firehorse) and engineer Sam Hofstedt (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden) we've recently finished our debut EP Please Be Still. Recorded mostly live at Studio Litho in Fremont, Please Be Still leans heavily on the classic sounds of electric guitars being played through cranked amps, Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer pianos, and the unmatched combo of the Hammond Organ coming through a Leslie. After three marathon days of hauling gear, shredding our guitars and voices we succeeded in creating a fun rock n roll record that is as much fun to listen to as it was to record.
