The Black Tones album title Cobain and Cornbread is a description of the band that lead singer/guitarist Eva came up with playing at a show, in answer to the most commonly asked question, “What does your band sound like?” This tasty adroitly description sums up her and her twin drummer Cedric David’s Seattle-spawned punk-blues. “Sometimes we don’t even sound like our influences,” she explains, “So the best way I found to describe The Black Tones was to talk about our environment we were raised around, which was a bunch of southerners living in the Northwest.”
Louisiana-bred, though born and raised in Seattle, The Black Tones’ reference to grunge god Kurt and the Native American quick bread cuisine, evokes “Southern influences in the grey of the Northwest,” Eva says. “It sort of creates this offspring of rebellion and soul. We eat gumbo in our flannel shirts, and we eat red beans and rice while head-banging!”
Najah Monique Todd and Del Brown make up the dance-pop duo Mirrorgloss. Formed in 2012 in Tacoma, Washington, the two established a unique sound with their decision to focus on their vocal pairing as the foundation of their musical creation. The pair compliments each other with the combination of Najamoniq's soulful vocals interweaved with the edgier sounds of Del. The result is a dynamic sound that is truly inspiring.
The look of the band is as refreshing as their art, citing influences as eclectic as Jeff Buckley, Death From Above 1979, The Pretenders. and The Gossip. As style-conscious plus-sized ladies, Mirrorgloss supports and promotes all types of beauty. Not just acceptance of, but the celebration of one's self. The ladies of Mirrorgloss believe that Sisterhood is less about competition but is more related to the strengthening of a foundation upon which we can all stand and encourage each others success.
Having found a kindred spirit in one another, the ladies of Mirrogloss feel fortunate to be traveling on this journey of creativity and self-expression together as best friends. Their captivating friendship radiates love and light, their music inspires freedom and movement, allowing fans to be a part of an uplifting, fun and inspirational dance party where everyone is invited.
La Fonda is a lyrically-driven indie dream pop band,
defined by sister singer-songwriters Veronica and Valerie Topacio, exploring
love, longing and loss with harmonically rich vocals, reverberating, 60s
surf-esque guitars, driving bass lines and synths.
The group started in the summer of 2015 when Veronica and Valerie began writing
songs and busking at Pike Place Market. The sisters grew up in a musical family
where singing in the living room with guitars was a regular affair. Magic
blossomed when they reconnected with guitarist Jesse Cole, friend from the
past, whose blue-wave guitar style mixes perfectly with their harmonies. The
Sisters and Cole then met their musical soulmate, bassist Bryan Dever. Weeks
later, Bryan’s childhood friend Patrick Hodge joined the ensemble on
keys/synth. Completing their lineup most recently after playing with a string
of several professional and studio drummers over the years since their
founding, the family that is La Fonda has found their match with the brilliant
addition of Jacob Whinihan (Special Explosions) on drums, having officially
joined the band in spring 2019 before they all headed out on a three-week tour
down the west coast to sxsw. Cemented in musical comradery, La Fonda
looks to their art as a compass to help each other navigate through the
compounding pressures and disarray of adulthood while attempting to adapt and
find their way in an ever-consuming digitized and radically polarized society.
Making wake in the music scenes and having completed two west coast tours with
pit stops in Austin at SxSw, the band continues to build their presence in
Seattle playing to sold out crowds, including at The Crocodile and Neumos,
opening for national touring acts such as Snail Mail and appearing in 2018
festivals like Capitol Hill Block Party.
Nearing the end of production on their anticipated elementary album, La Fonda
connects with their fans through discussing life living paycheck-to-paycheck,
learning from break-ups, the lingering effects of infidelity, stripped
confidence, and adolescent traumas. The family that makes up La Fonda hopes the
vulnerability exposed in their music steers people closer to their core,
reminding those who can hear them to show up fearlessly in love and life,
broadcasting their most authentic, confident and beautifully vulnerable selves.
