    The Magic Beans

    Funk-Rock

    The Magic Beans are a band with a passion for music that is as infectious as their songs, both of which have gained them national notoriety in a short time. Much like modern music lovers, the band’s sound isn’t confined to one-genre. The Beans strive to be as inclusive as possible by skirting the lines between many genres within their unique sound. Listeners are left with a danceable ode to funk, rock, bluegrass, livetronica, americana, world, prog, and more. Music can encompass so many different feels and emotions. That is why the group strives to pull from many unique influences to produce music that moves both your mind and feet.

    The group uses no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music; original songwriting and continually pushing the envelope are what have set this group apart. Whether you like ballads or bangers, the Beans have something you will enjoy. Seamlessly combining clever songs with modern dance music, The Magic Beans are an original band you have to see.

    Alternative

    Solar Twin is the brainchild of Nashville based and Seattle born artist Shane Tutmarc. Listen closely and you may hear familiar elements from his previous projects Dolour and United State of Electronica. With Solar Twin this prolific artist has redefined the poetry of his songwriting, creating a worldly and eclectic aesthetic where beauty and darkness often trade punches from line to line. 

    With the songwriting chops he's developed over a decade as a solo artist. Solar Twin's first two singles introduced an idea of the scope of the sound Tutmarc is bringing to the table. Slow Motion (released in September 2016) combined R&B and hip hop grooves, with baroque pop arrangements. Next, Black Sky Revisited (released in December 2016) felt more like a hard rock version of Daft Punk, with vocoder vocals, heavy guitars, and a Beatle-esque feel. The third single, The Big Sleep was penned specifically for the closing credits of a documentary that focuses on the heroin epidemic on Seattle's streets. The song marries Solar Twin's signature dreamy sound with lyrics of dependence and addiction, in a way that is universal to any listener. 

    “The upcoming Solar Twin album to me represents a rebirth. After 10 years of following my muse down a more dusty, American roots path, this is a project that feels completely free from rules or genre aesthetics. I was tired of relying on other people to help me realize my ambitions. So, I put together a home studio and started doing everything myself. I brought in a few friends along the way (Matthew Hoopes of Relient K, Zach Ryan, and Sammy Barrett on True Colors), but this is mostly just a solo vision of music with endless possibilities. Melodic, dark, introspective, moody, and at times very catchy. I tried to bring in flavors from all of my favorite music. It's an album that was challenging in all the right ways, I'm really proud of the result, and can't wait to share it with everyone.” – says Tutmarc

    On Solar Twin’s upcoming album debut the songs are many things—a protest, a rally cry, a kind of musical film noir filled with life, pain, hope and love.
