Motopony
Motopony
Motopony is a Seattle-based alt-psych-electro band led by singer Daniel Blue. With the success of their two full-length albums and a recording journey from the iconic Abbey Road studios, Motopony has toured halfway around the world and back playing festivals including SXSW, India's NH-7 Weekender, UPstream and Bumbershoot with 2018 US tours and dates all across the UK and Europe.

Blue and company have been hard at work crafting new music, after nearly a year in the studio and collecting field recordings from around the world, the forthcoming album has grown to over 30 individual tracks. Preceded by 11 digital singles, the physical album “Fifty Katrinas From Now” will include a fold-out listening station and full-color photo/lyric book with a double page for every song.
Ezra Bell
Ezra Bell
Ezra Bell features Darren Moore (bass), Tom Trotter (drums), Aaron Mattison (horns and arrangements), and Jeremy Asay (keys and tenor guitar) backing up Benjamin Wuamett's story-songs and satirical jigs with organic precision. Carving a wide path through the musical spectrum, Ezra Bell brushes up against folk, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and R&B.

Ezra Bell's first full-length debut will be released on May 24th, 2018. Featuring ebullient soul twang, flowing and leaping like the music of a late 60s/early 70s recording of well-trained freaks dabbling in various genres. "The overall theme going into this? Desperation. A call to arms. A whimper. A declaration that being witty by yourself at 4 AM in a basement, is a poor way to live." After three well-received EPs, the playfully literate Wuamett and his gaggle of quite fit players, conjure up a festive dusky vibe that doesn't smother out the melancholy.
Sebastian and the Deep Blue
Sebastian and the Deep Blue founded in 2011 is a one of a kind group. Fronted and led by songwriter and composer Barry Sebastian, the band is bound only by the imagination. Lush with addicting horn sections, classic pop progressions, and a folk rock attitude Genre to genre song to song sebastian and the deep blue is unpredictable and fun.
