  • Biography The women of NighTraiN were brought together as a concept band for an original stage play production called “Hot Grits.” In a process that was projected to take nine months, the women were assigned their instruments which they had to learn, write songs and begin gigging in the Seattle underground music scene in preparation for the play. The Band and music were very well received. Being very diverse in experience, age and backgrounds, the original women developed a profound friendship and connection in the music and decided to reunite after the stage play ended and formed NighTraiN. NTN offers a fresh take on the punk/funk/soul genres. Their sound is a heavy engine hum formed by the blunt bass rhythms of Selena "No Pick" Whitaker‐Paquiet. It is a heart beat held steady by the percussive stylings of Taryn "Hot Legs" Dorsey. It is dark heat strummed from the guitar of Nicole "Christ Child" Peoples and accompanied by the steam whistle wail of Rachael F. NTN is locomotive punk!
