Western Centuries has embarked on a somewhat unique experiment in songwriting and performing; three people, Cahalen Morrison, Ethan Lawton and Jim Miller sharing the songwriting and lead singing duties in the band equally. We met in Seattle in 2010 through the lively traditional music scene in the area.
 
Five years ago, we decided to write and perform original material as a unit. In 2016 we put out Weight of the World, our first record featuring songs from all three writers.
 
Our second record, Songs from the Deluge, came out in 2018.Although Western Centuries initially met through bluegrass, old time and early country music, with each record the songs have stretched further and further away from a traditional mold.Our third, Call the Captain, recorded and produced in June 2019 by Bill Reynolds in his Nashville studio, represents by far our most interesting and varied set of songs yet.
 
Call the Captain is a collection of 12 tracks, ranging from intimate acoustic based songs, to country, R & B, and straight up rock and roll. The experiment continues in a time when record labels are signing bands based on algorithms and likes, it's refreshing to work with a band that puts in the work to create a sound together; something a plug in or a computer can't replicate.
 
Western Centuries are masters at what they do: Write songs, harmonize, and play music together. From a producer who lives on those older records where bands toured and put lots of blood and sweat into their sound, Iam very grateful to be involved with a band that works so hard. It's a damn blast to record; the 2 inch tape machine just eats it up.

  • Sons of Rainier

    Sons of Rainier

    Country Folk

    It’s hard to sound as easy as the Sons of Rainier. The band’s self-released debut Down in Pancake Valley is a bubbling brook of an album, flowing with casual charm, effortless yet inexorable. With acoustic guitar and upright bass and brushed snare, plus languid narration by a sweet, lilting voice, its opening number describes the landscape of the quartet’s open-range country folk: “Way out on the Payette River/Past the hills of Horseshoe Bend/Winds change course without warning/Sagebrush for miles on end…” The rest of the album rolls by just as vivid and spare.
  • Amanda Winterhalter

    Amanda Winterhalter

    Folk

    Writing and performing music is where Amanda feels most at home and in her element. It’s on the stage where she finds her most powerful means to connect with people – through sound and story. As she studied literature and creative writing, eventually earning a graduate degree in teaching English, stories began to fuel her songwriting: stories passed down from voices and pages and traditions; stories of experience, reaching into places that hold the promises of the people we wanted to become and the strengths we hoped to have. Stories spoke songs to her. These songs began to take on the indefinite edges of the unavoidable aches in life, of desire and flirtation, of the beauty of all the uncomfortable paradoxes we carry.

    In 2012, as she began performing her music on Seattle stages ranging from clubs to concert halls, she also began writing and performing original music inspired by books for The Bushwick Book Club Seattle.

    Amanda recently won first place in the Jane Titland Songwriting Contest at the Tumbleweed Music Festival for her song “Shirt.” As long as she’s been playing her songs, audience members, friends, peers, and family alike have been asking her, “When can I buy your album?” After years of performing, Amanda is thrilled to  finally present her debut album, Olea. Listen here.

    “I don’t remember what I was listening to before I clicked on Amanda’s song, “Shirt”. I only remember feeling a total shift in my attention. Right away I was thinking: WOW. In a large sea of music made with electronics/effects/pedals/plugins, I was hearing something unquestionably real.”  -Bandterviews.com

     “. . . to hear that depth from one so young is truly moving. I found OLEA both creative and inventive. [Her] voice not only soars but I also love the tender, more vulnerable sound along the way . . . ”  -David Maloney

     “Her recent full length, Olea, showcases Winterhalter’s considerable range, including the album’s triumphant high point, “I’m 100 Years Old,” and “What’s This, Death?” delivers yet one more reason Winterhalter deserves our attention.”    -Jon Rooney for BallofWax.org

    Winner of the 2016 Tumbleweed Music Festival Jane Titland Songwriting Contest
