Aaron Crawford – https://www.crawfordaaronmusic.com/
Raised in the hotbed music scene of Seattle, Aaron Crawford has a sound that blends his original influences, from church music, to Johnny Cash, all the way to U2. With his sophomore release of Evergreen, He has embraced the sounds of the Northwest, and you can hear it. After paying his dues for years on the honky tonk circuit, He brings a confidence to shows, that simultaneously puts the audience at ease, and on the edge of their seat. Singing songs “dripping with roots in a field of pop country artists” he has the courage to be genuine, and it shows. What you see onstage, is what you get. He loves the music he is singing, and whether solo, or backed by his band of elite Seattle musicians, you can’t help but be pulled into a good time, and leave with one of his songs stuck in your head.
Jones & Fischer – https://jonesandfischer.com/
Darin Jones and Caleb Fischer are the namesakes and front men of the Pacific North West based five-piece group: Jones & Fischer, and have started something truly unique in country music that has captured thousands of fans across the US and Canada. The two have blended their different styles and influences from each of their own hometowns; Seattle, Washington and San Antonio Texas, and its made for a fiery new sound that is all their own amongst the wave of overly processed, lyrically cliche’ and substance-less songs currently emanating from the country genre. They are going against the proverbial ‘industry grain’ by pursuing a career in country music while not living in Nashville, and not being signed to a major label or booking agency. They are completely independent, building their fan base like a band should: hitting the road and paying their dues one show at a time, playing the songs they wrote.
Knut Bell – http://www.knutbell.com/
I call it HONKAHILLAROCKABILLY…it’s like an ol’ coal train grumblin’ down the side of a mountain…a king crab block buzzing on the Bering Sea…a MS 880 Magnum Stihl (with a 59″ bar) roarin’ through timber…a sound that permeates Americana!
The Lowdown Drifters – http://www.thelowdowndrifters.com/
The Lowdown Drifters are a Country and Americana band from Stanwood, WA just north of Seattle formed in 2015 based off of a love of honest and expressive songwriting with the goal of fostering and furthering the tradition of country music embodied by Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. After spending time in other bands in the past, the members found the opportunity to join forces with the mission of infusing their varied musical influences with lyrics that spoke to their lives and dreams. A focus on musicianship and the relatable themes of love, loss, heartbreak and hard living are the staples of the Lowdown Drifters music vocalized in singer Big John Cannons recognizable gritty roar. The 2016 release Wood & Water provides the staples of their live show with songs like Upriver and End Up in a Song written by Cannon and guitarist Ryan Klein which are fast becoming requested fan favorites wherever they play. The thundering rhythm section that is the heartbeat of the band is held down by Eric “E Rock” Gehrke and Galen Bailey keeping every dance able song in time and up to speed.
