Warren Dunes feat. Julia Massey
Warren Dunes formed one morning when...
Singer Julia Massey turned to her husband, the rock band frontman for Electric NoNo, Jared Cortese, and said, “it’s time.” Massey, the longtime frontwoman for Julia Massey and the Five Finger Discount, is known for her sweet falsettos and childlike buoyancy. Cortese, who writes intricate electric guitar-based songs, turned to his wife and said, “I think you’re right.”

The musical power couple is backed by the marvel known as Dominic Cortese on drums. Dominic has played with Julia and Jared for years in their prior projects and with many others in the Seattle music scene. Now, the trio has formed like a sonic Voltron to play joyous, dance-worthy music with a purpose: the profits from each show the band plays will go toward a cause near and dear to their hearts: finding people homes. Prior recipients have included the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, the ACLU and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project. See Warren Dunes at an Emerald City venue near you and help the cause.

Bear Axe

Led Zeppelin meets Lead Belly. Rooted in prog-rock with a thunder of soul, Seattle band BEARAXE is a triumphant sweep of rebellion with a shot glass full of liberation. A mulit-faceted vocal texture is paired with evocative guitar solos by Matthew Williams and heart-thumping jams by Jon Lemmon and “Nukks” Tuitama.
This band self identifies as a three piece and a biscuit, combining the bone shaking vocals of soul- singer Shaina Shepherd with an electrified fusion of funk, jazz and proto-punk.
Their debut EP “Last Call” is an unapologetically chaotic story of Black Feminism produced by Grammy award winning, rock and roll legend Jack Endino. “Last Call” dives into the pain and pleasure of a self-inflicted party.
BEARAXE has been rocking dive bars across the Northwest since the summer of 2016 -- headlining shows at historic Seattle venues like The Central Saloon, Hardrock Cafe and Tractor Tavern -- all while merging their unique brand of storytelling with the low-lit grit of the Seattle grunge movement.
