Charlie and the Rays' debut album is a sprawling pastiche of roots rock and pop. The self-titled album is a gem awash with vocal harmonies, hand claps, wailing guitar licks, and deep swells of emotion.

INTERVIEW + NEW MUSIC: Hotels

I am continuously blown away by the amount of talented people that reside within the confines of our city of Seattle.  Whether it’s poetry, visual art, writing, dancing, podcasting, making music or whatever other crazy rad thing someone does; this city and the residents within are on fleek.  Side note: I recently learned what it […]

INTERVIEW + NEW MUSIC: Yumi Zouma
