GRACE LOVE
Grace has been performing professionally for 10 years now and grew up watching her mother sing in the church choir in Memphis. She knew she had an affinity for performing when at just four years old she was asked to sing “This Little Light of Mine” in front of the congregation. As she grew older she realized her inspiration no longer came solely from the church, but from soul and rock and roll artists like Ray Charles. “There’s sound and inspiration all over if you are quiet enough” while listening to all the sounds within the space. Sometimes she’ll use the creaks and groans of the apartment to find inspiration for melodies. Her voice is unique indeed. While still among the greats like Etta James and Mahalia Jackson, Grace presses the bounds of conventional crooning, altering her voice from low and gravely to bright and gospel-like within the same breath and we are proud she accepted to join the Cannonball Collective in a project which is not only a bunch of releases on vinyl but also live sets, lyrics writing and more.
The Guessing Game
The Guessing Game
Formed in the summer of 2013, THE GUESSING GAME is the brain child of Jeff Rouse, long time bassist of Duff McKagan’s LOADED. “Having spent the last 14 or so years writing, recording and touring in LOADED, it was time for me to get the ‘other’ songs I had been working on out of my head, onto tape, and see what happens.” Seeking out long time Seattle rock luminaries Kathy Moore (Brad, Satchel) Gary Westlake (Peter Frampton, Flight To Mars, Pete Carroll), Keith Ash (Star Anna, Marshall Altman) and Shawn Zellar (Redneck Girlfriend, Fires), Rouse knew this was something special – “They all breathed life and beauty into the songs and it was magnificent.”
Their debut album, HOLY CROW dripped of heartache, regret and finally redemption.
With the aggressive sound of their new album, DESTROY IT ALL, THE GUESSING GAME is ready to take their place in the vanguard of the international rock scene. Fueled by the ferocious vocals of Jeff Rouse, and driven by the onslaught of heavy guitar riffs, the band has been winning legions of fans with its uncompromising stage show. "DESTROY IT ALL is a testament to what we have become as a band and what 5 people can do emotionally, artistically, and cinematically in once again a very short time.” – Jeff Rouse
Joyfield
Joyfield
Joyfield is a Seattle-based indie alternative band boasting powerful female vocals and intriguing instrumentals. Though drawing comparisons to Joy Formidable and Metric, the four-piece consistently reinvents the wheel and strives to create a sound and style truly unique to their own brand.

Formed in 2010, Joyfield is comprised of college friends Ellie Hanes (vocals/keys), Michael Szember (guitar), and Karris Nicklaus (drums). Sean Lane joined on bass in 2013, and over the last year the unsigned group has made leaps and bounds towards achieving success.

2014 has proven to be an amazing year for Joyfield, with a Grand Prize title from the Hard Rock Rising Battle of the Bands giving them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play for 40,000 fans in Rome, Italy this past July.

The band is currently recording their new album "Hands" and plans to release the EP this fall.
