Sun Mother - A staple act in the Seattle area since early 2017, this group just keeps getting better and better. Who knew a 3-piece could get such SOUND! If you're into grunge and funk with an edge, you'll be on the edge of your seat (or up on your feet!) with Sun Mother www.facebook.com/sunmotherseattle/
Artemis Moon - Daughter of Zeus and twin sister to Apollo, she is the Greek personification of empowerment, positive femininity, & free will. The goddess represents the same emboldened spirit as the music of Artemis Moon. The band experiments with bending genres that represent the goddess, resulting in a fusion of folk, classical, & progressive rock. With raging vocals, psychedelic guitar, and a tight rhythm section, this band is quickly going to make you a fan. www.facebook.com/artemismoonmusic/
Layden & the Lion - Add gritty vocals, true-life lyricism, catchy riffs, and a solid live band and you get Layden and the Lion. Based out of South Louisiana and Florida this man is sure to impress the listening audience both musically and visually. Heavily influenced by the sounds of Lucero, Against me!, and Alkaline Trio, as well as many other bands/genres blended together to create their sound. Releasing his first 6 song EP "Lost And Lonely With Everything" Layden and the Lion display passion for writing songs that everyone can relate too, whether it be an uptempo feel-good song, to a mid-tempo lyrically dark song, to a laid-back acoustic song about the struggles of day to day life. Layden and the Lion is not trying to reinvent the wheel..... they're just keeping the wheel rolling. www.facebook.com/laydenmusic/

Following the devastating 2011 tsunami, musicians and community organizers teamed together to build new music venues ("live houses") using reclaimed rubble to help reinvigorate the rural countryside where most of the damage was incurred. In 2013, 2 students from Tokyo's Waseda University took their cameras up to the sites of the new venues to document what was happening on the ground with 東北ライブハウス大作戦 (Tōhoku Live House Daisakusen)！

They will be joined by Ian Ethan Case. Acoustic double-neck guitarist and Candyrat recording artist Ian Ethan Case is quickly becoming recognized as “one of the most creative and engaging fingerstyle guitarists in the world” (International Center for Creativity.)
After a decade of composing and performing around the country largely under the radar, in 2015 a viral facebook video of his song “Butter II” introduced his music to over 6 million listeners around the world in the course of a month. In addition to a record deal and endorsements with companies such as Ovation guitars and Boss pedals, 2016 and 2017 provided extensive touring opportunities throughout Europe and the United States, including two performances with a full symphony orchestra. Fingerstyle legend Don Ross invited Case to open for him in Ross’ then-hometown of Toronto, later describing his performance as “some of the most massively inventive musicianship I’ve ever heard/seen.” Other listeners have described his music as a cross between Michael Hedges and Pat Metheny.

Tunes like “Examination of Time”, “Loaded”, “Get on up”, and “Hyphy” were instant anthems, selling out world wide & receiving heavy support from giants like; N-type, Plastician, Bassnectar, Emalkay, and Skream. After a short hiatus due to working on other musical endeavors such the powerhouse future jungle/dancehall project “Lost City” and the mighty “Avocaudio" imprint, magnetism has brought the two back together for some massive 2018 releases and shows. Live, they get the party rowdy with quick mixes, diverse track selection, top shelf dubs, and their contagious positive energy. Not only are their legendary sets leaving a huge impression on every major North American city, but they’ve turned heads on tour all over Europe, South America, Australia, & Asia.
