    Giants in the Trees

    Rock

    Giants in the Trees are a Rock Band hailing from Wahkiakum County, Washington. The quartet is inspired by the environment and culture of the Lower Columbia River. Musicians Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, Krist Novoselic and Ray Prestegard have created a sound that could best be described as Pop / Rock. The band is not offended by terms like schmaltz. On the other hand, there are heavy groove numbers, screaming slide guitar and accordion. There is even an anthem—so raise your arms with the phone flashlights.

    How did this blend of influences come to be? The band first met for a casual jam in the Skamokawa Grange Hall last spring. The players wasted no time at all composing their first two songs on that first day. They were hooked to the music and a band was born. Eventually, as more material was produced, the group started playing shows such as the Wahkiakum County Fair and a special benefit raising over $2,400 for needed repairs to the Grange Hall.

    Gravelroad

    Alternative Rock

    GravelRoad is a Seattle band that seamlessly blends the trance of North Mississippi Hill Country Blues with the fuzz and power of heavy rock and roll. The band is hot off recent releases for local upstart label Knick Knack Records. 2012 saw the band release the widely acclaimed full length Psychedelta (one of Classic Rock Magazine’s Albums of the Year). 2013’s single Pedernales (recorded at Willie Nelson’s studio of the same name) was quickly followed by the full length album, The Bloody Scalp of Burt Merlin (“GravelRoad’s “The Bloody Scalp of Burt Merlin” is one of those rare albums from whose wholly exceptional songs it proves more than a little difficult to choose favorites.” – James Carlson, No Depression).

    The new album, as yet untitled, will be released once again on Knick Knack Records in the fall of 2014, and follows in the footsteps of their signature mix of the Hill Country and the Heavy by widening the scope of their sound even further. If Black Sabbath had grown up in Holly Springs, Mississippi, they might sound like where GravelRoad is heading, with their feet firmly grounded and pedals to the floor.
