About J. Martin

Folk-rock

J. Martin

As guitarist in Tacoma indie pop favorites Oh Dear! for several years, J. Martin had plenty of time to develop as an artist. While Oh Dear! tended more toward nervy and sprightly melodies and rhythms, J. Martin's solo output has solidly leaned in the direction of melancholy folk-rock, with welcome dashes of psychedelic color. Finally given the spotlight on his own terms, J. Martin proves himself to be a capable frontman.

About Hanna Masha

Folk & rock

Hanna Masha

Hanna has been playing music her whole life, growing and inspired by her experiences playing music with friends, first in Seattle band Hana & the Goose, and in Tacoma bands Masha & Lars, Cocoon, and Channel Relief, moving between guitar, violin, and bass. As Hanna Masha, she delves into her personal songwriting style, folk and rock inspired with elements of drone, experimental, and dark folk. Her first album A New Unruly shows her exploration in multi-instrumental 4-track recordings. Hanna Masha's new ep came together with the inspiration of a cairn: high desert guide but more so, the meaningful yet delicate interaction between a person and nature. A writer and music crafter, her songs explore life struggles as reflected and opened up in nature.
