Lucas Tayne
Lucas Tayne
Lucas Tayne is an American singer-songwriter from Seattle, Washington. He spent his formative years playing guitar and drums in local indie rock and punk bands The Lighter Side of Epic and The Red Trousers before expanding his influences to bluegrass, americana, and jazz. Tayne has lived and gigged in Portland, OR and Boston, MA as well as spending a year in Shanghai performing with the hip hop-funk fusion group The Immigrants.

Upon returning home in 2016 Tayne quickly established himself as a staple of the Seattle music scene and recorded his debut album, A Point A Round, with producer and pianist Tim Kennedy. Praised by Divide and Conquer Music for its “expressive, thoughtful lyrics, unique arrangements and interesting phrasing” the album showcases Tayne’s instinct as a composer and lyricist. Influenced by classic jazz and rock recordings the album was recorded in less than 5 hours with no over overdubs and captures the intimate feel that the songwriter brings to his live performances.

While playing frequently around the North West Tayne is working on his sophomore album due out in late 2018. In addition to his solo efforts he also collaborates regularly with singer-songwriter Sarah O’Dea.
Hot Rod
Hot Rod
"So, I just kinda "stumbled" into Hot Rod's debut show last month at the Seamonster and was quite amazed. I decided that I needed to stay and went to get myself a beer. As Mark, the bartender, was drawing my beer, I said "I thought Gram Parsons was dead"....He looked towards the band and said "I thought Warren Zevon was dead"...If you aren't in the know, both of these are compliments of the highest degree. As the evening progressed, I kinda came to the conclusion that this is what the Talking Heads would have sounded like if they had decided to tackle country music. Lots of comparisons, but a uniquely original band playing Tim Kennedy's original tunes." Gregory Dear

"If you missed HOT ROD at the SEAMONSTER LOUNGE last night, you probably missed NIRVANA at THE CENTRAL TAVERN...HEART at PARKERS BALLROOM...THIN RED LINE at SEWARD PARK...and JIMI HENDRIX at THE SPANISH CASTLE...TK, Country Terry and the boys brought their folky funk salad of Gram Parsons, Warren Zevon and the Beach Boys sounds to an epic experience of ethereal energy (I am well aware that both Gram and Warren died young with limited commercial success and communal cult followings)...So, make sure you catch HOT ROD before they explode...or die...or both." Roland Brown
