    Alternative Folk

    Seattle is a city famous for its rain. There's nothing like stepping outside to a foggy morning in the Northwest and being able to see your breath dissolve into the air. And nothing captures that feeling better than a good song. Kelsey Sprague, with only her voice and an acoustic guitar, manages to convey everything beautiful and simultaneously desperate about the constant mist, relieved by the occasional spike of sunshine. With influences ranging from classics like Patsy Cline and Connie Francis to more contemporary names such as Josh Ritter, Jenny Lewis, and Camera Obscura, Kelsey manages to take familiar sounds and make them her own. With a sound that captures both vulnerability and independence, it expresses a world weariness and a wide eyed wonder that will make you feel like you're stepping outside, watching your own breath disappear.

    Alternative Country

    Award-winning Seattle band Diamondwolf is two long-time locals in harmony. Alicia Dara has been a member of the Seattle music community for 15 years, released 5 solo records and fronts indie rock band The Volcano Diary. Glen Cooper is a local musician and improv actor. They met 13 years ago and reconnected in 2012. An EP of 2 originals and three covers was released in 2013. The CD release at the Crocodile for their first EP sold out, and they got a reputation for red-hot acoustic shows with skilled close-harmony singing that evokes The Civil Wars and Band of Horses.

    Diamondwolf has won awards for their songs, one for the haunting ballad "Swansong" and another for the rousing anthem "Cool Blue Fire". Both songs will appear on their upcoming full-length debut CD, due in early 2015.

    Both Alicia and Glen are multi-instrumental, and they played most of the tracks on their upcoming CD, with Alicia on drums and slide guitar, and Glen on bass and electric guitar. The signature Diamondwolf sound is the interplay between two acoustic guitars: Glen plays a regular 6- string acoustic, and Alicia's has Nashville strings, which fills out their sound and creates unique chord voicings. Their record was recorded in an open room on Vashon Island, inside a “forest of microphones” that captured crystal-clear live takes of their voices and guitars. Overdubs were added afterward, including Alicia on drums and Glen on bass, with co-producer Jason Staczek adding piano and Hammond B3 organ. Additional tracks were recorded and co-produced with Moe Provencher, and with Justin Froese in the cavernous Fremont Abbey.

    In 2014 Diamondwolf also recorded a brand-new EP of covers, including songs by Queens of the Stone Age, Neil Young, Goldfrapp and Tom Waits, to give to fans that contribute to the band's upcoming Kickstarter campaign.
