NighTraiN
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 to learn their assigned instruments, write songs and begin performing in the Seattle underground music scene in preparation for the play. The Band and their music were very well received. Although, 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 to form NighTraiN (NTN).

NighTraiN offers a fresh take on the garage, punk, and rock genres, and are constantly discovering their ever changing voice. The fluctuating ages of the group and their individual experiences genuinely affect the outcome of their music. Exposed to different viewpoints, they stick to their own truths; therefore, NighTraiN’s music is never stagnant or stuck within one genre due to their non-traditional approach. NighTraiN’s sound is a heavy engine hum formed by the blunt bass rhythms of Selena "No Pick" Whitaker-Paquiet. It is a heartbeat held steady by the percussive stylings of Taryn "Hot Legs" Dorsey. It is dark heat strummed from the guitar of Nicole "Jaja Juicy" Peoples and accompanied by the steam whistle wail of Rachael F. “Lead vocalist Rachael Ferguson sings with a gravelly steadiness over NighTraiN's raucous percussion and electric strings, and it's exciting to see riot girrl owned by women of color, inevitably expanding and deepening the potential of punk music to speak on an inclusive (black) feminist discourse in music. And it looks like a good-ass time."
