Hail The Pilot
Hail The Pilot
Hail the Pilot is an indie rock band hailing from Tacoma Washington in the beautiful northwest. From pulsating rhythms, dreamy guitar textures and soundscapes to over-driven walls of sound, they have set their sights on making a record that will enrapture the listener from beginning to end.
While formed in 2016, Hail the Pilots roots go back years when drummer Bobby Stevens and singer-songwriter/guitar player Jason Iversen played in another band together for over 10 years. During that time, a passion and vision began forming between the two, eventually leading them to abandon their former band and create Hail the Pilot. Jason's brother Matt Iversen immediately joined on as the bassist and in late 2017, Nathan Bena was added as lead guitar to complete the band.

It started with a shared passion to record an album that isn't just a collection of songs but a cohesive experience where each song is part of a bigger story. "We wanted to do something that brought back the spirit of albums such as Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon or Radiohead's OK Computer. You can listen to one song and it's great, but it's even better if listened to in the context of the album." The band decided on waiting until the album was out before hitting the stage again in an effort to remain focused on recording. The recording phase began in late 2016 and released April 10th 2018.
Mercy Parker
Mercy Parker
It's incredibly difficult to find that one musical frequency that all members of a band can lock into. That sole wavelength, when discovered and experienced, can propel a band's song writing into another dimension. In early 2018 the stars aligned and with serendipitous introductions, the Seattle band Mercy Parker was formed.

United in never settling for the ordinary and always looking to push the bounds of sonic evolution, founding members Philip C. Sudore, Jase Ihler, Chris Sloan, and Matt Mckay have created a unique sound that is indicative of their diverse musical backgrounds and life experiences.

The band has been quoted as describing their music as “gritty and melodic”. That statement is universally agreed upon. It is evident in their honest writing and emotional, hard hitting recordings that these musicians all play from their guts.

Mercy Parker is about great song writing and great rock and roll. Pure and simple.
Sonic Medicine
Sonic Medicine
Sonic Medicine began with some songs and an idea for a trio rock band of drums, baritone saxaphone and electric guitar. When it manifested, the group swiftly grew to include bass and violin. Sonic Medicine is a dynamic rock band with psychedelic tendancies who borrow from jazz, classical, and all forms of popular music
