  • Biography The Summer Januaries got their start busking the streets of Seattle, in the summer of 2011, playing Pike Place Market upwards of five days a week. Made up of two sets of musical and romantic partners, the band shoots little arrows of love to their audience in the form of ridiculously fast and fun fiddle tunes and songs. Fiddle player Rachel Sage was trained as a classical violinist at a young age, but was always drawn to fiddle music and more folk traditions. She has made these aspirations a reality for the past six years, learning folk fiddle tunes from a wide variety of sources, and busking and performing all around the Pacific Northwest.

The album placed in The Province Newspaper’s 2008 top ten list and Herohill.com’s top 20. In 2010.

  • Biography Lone Madrone really knows how to bring the house down. They have described their music as Foot-Stompin' Acoustic Bliss... but since 'foot-stompin' can describe 70% of Portland bands, let me elaborate: Personally, I think they have a really eclectic approach - it's a bit western-tinged, alt-country / Folsom-Prison-Blues-vibed charm with harmonic moments of Beatle-esque magic. They have severe mojo and the talent to stand out from the plethora of bands out there. Their songwriting is thoughtful to a fault, every note and word is perfectly written, but their edges are loose and wild and their live shows feel like spontaneity took its top off and flashed your granny.

  • Biography The original intention was to make a record. After years of touring and recording with the brash and energetic garage punk outfit The Whore Moans, songwriter Ryan Devlin had notebooks full of material that just didn’t fit: folk tunes that sounded more like the Bob Dylan and Paul Simon he grew up on; finger picking ramblers and Nashville style ballads. The songs kept playing through his mind, insisting he find an outlet for them. A year before Smokey Brights would play their first note together, Devlin sought out the musicians whose talents he wanted to help him realize these persistent songs: Jim Vermillion and Nick Krivchenia had been playing bass and drums together every week for the past five years for upwards of twenty hours—just the two of them—working on tight syncopations, in time signatures that read like long division. Their efforts had been under the names Armed with Legs and Kill Kill Orchestra. To have one in a band was to have the other, like brothers, or house players in an old soul studio. The duo agreed to try some songs out with Devlin, and work began in the summer of 2010. Mike Kalnoky was best known for his angular lead guitar lines in What What Now, the DIY Seattle art-punk band. Though, if you’d ever had the chance to see his old outfit Thunderbird Motel, you’d know that Mike can play the blues—the area where his musical roots truly reside. When Devlin asked him to sit in on a rehearsal with a yet un-named trio, it all came together. Mike’s bright Telecaster bends sounded like a young Mike Bloomfield, weaving through the melodies, bringing the twang that brought it all back home. In the first week of 2011, they got down to business and made the record that had been spinning through Devlin’s mind for years. The result was a sum of their parts: some rock, some blues, some R&B, some twang. By the time the boys released “Can’t Rightly Say,” they were already filling up clubs, playing festivals, and even garnering some national attention. The songs and Devlin’s efforts have found their outlet, and the boys in Smokey Brights have been more than happy to oblige.

With powerful vocals and intricate harmonies, their poignant, honest, and relatable songwriting has distinguished them in the Americana/alt-country scene. They thrive on stage in an energetic display of passion – whether backed by their 6-peice band or as an acoustic duo – creating an unmistakable connection with every audience. After departing from long term musical projects, Aubrey and Matt met in September 2010 and quickly realized that they shared a common musical vision.
