  • The Moondoggies

    The Moondoggies

    Music

    Rooted in folk-rock and woodsy Americana, the Moondoggies take influences from such vocally inclined groups as the Byrds, the Band, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Although hailing from Seattle, seeds for the band's formation were planted in nearby Everett, Washington, where Kevin Murphy (vocals, guitar), Robert Terreberry (bass), Carl Dahlen (drums), and Caleb Quick (keyboards) formed a teenaged band while attending Cascade High School. The students discovered their talent for three-part vocal harmonies, and when Murphy returned from a summer-long stay in Alaska in 2005, the four friends reconvened in Seattle to form the Moondoggies. Taking up residence at a local dive bar named the Blue Moon Tavern, the Moondoggies honed their craft and soon netted a contract with Hardly Art, an imprint of Seattle's own Sub Pop Records. Don't Be a Stranger, the band's woozy debut, appeared in 2008, with the mature Tidelands following in October 2010. Third album Adios I'm a Ghost, released in 2013 and aided by the addition of multi-instrumentalist Jon Pontrello to the band, fell somewhere between the two in sound and tone.

  • SISTERS

    SISTERS

    Alternative Rock

     SISTERS is an orchestra of two, and their togetherness is infectious. Within their first four shows, the Seattle duo opened for Allen Stone at Chateau Ste Michelle and played the inaugural Fisherman's Village Music Festival; within three months, their lead singles, Back 2 U and Buzzard, were licensed by Starbucks, and within their first year, they were bookeed at Sasquatch! Music Festival, Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival and Capitol Hill Block Party. Their genre-gender-bending brand of indie pop isas endearing as it is virtuosic, as pointed out by Gelatinous Blog's Jared Brannan, who proclaimed, “It's honestly hard to fathom that the compositions these two generate can be performed with a sum total of 8 appendages and two voices. The quality of that astonishment [is] not lost upon the crowd, as each rawkus round of shouts and applause between songs [feels] like a celebration of profound technical musicianship.” This is the togetherness of SISTERS, and everywhere they go, audiences, musicians, and critics alike are cheering their praise.

    Emily and Andrew first met while attending the University of Miami's Frost School of Music. A series of fateful decisions, largely made independently of one another, brought them both to the Pacific Northwest, where they danced proverbial circles around one another in various musical projects before ultimately coming together to form SISTERS in the spring of 2014. Quickly garnering attention as the new band to watch, SISTERS’ style is the consummate blend of formal music training and bold creativity. They make an expansive sound, incorporating an array of instruments and often playing them simultaneously. “It's taking multi-tasking to the extreme,” says Westman. “We want the audience to feel like they're watching a magic show.” Marked by luscious harmonies, haunting melodies, and layered rhythmic patterns, Emily and Andrew cover more ground than should be possible for two musicians. Radiating the joy of playing music together, Seattle Gay Scene may have said it best: SISTERS is about “making music with your long lost best friend."

    With the excitement surrounding SISTERS reaching a fever pitch, their focus remains on building their future together. Amidst industry momentum, collaborations with national artists set for eminent release, and a lockbox full of polished recordings, a new world is unfolding, and they can't wait to share it with you...
