Bartlett Christmas Special
The Bartlett Christmas Special is a yearly tradition celebrating music, family and fun around the holidays. Each year we gather local musicians to write and record new holiday/winter inspired tunes, we record them for a compilation and come together to play all the songs live.
Lavoy
Lavoy
Blending and layering hints of modern Alt-Pop and 80's nostalgia, Lavoy is Alternative's answer to Ellie Goulding. Since their polished synth-laden take on dance party rhetoric hit the airwaves in early 2014, the charismatic collective have brought new meaning to the term 'entertainment', while the unassuming audience finds themselves persuaded into letting the movement take over and soon realize they've given way to the luring sound. Founded on and fueled by the principles of quality dance tracks and the pure elation the 5-piece displays while performing, the alt pop visionaries that make up Lavoy are ascending beyond the forest of new industry talent with a great bit of confidence and more fervor than most seem to muster in a life time.
Curran Long
Curran Long
Curran Long is a singer/songwriter from Spokane, WA.
Windoe
Windoe
Windoe is the solo project of longtime northwest musician-songwriter Karli Fairbanks now Ingersoll. Based out of Spokane, Washington, Windoe performs as a four-piece band combining grunge-rock elements, minimalist arrangements and introspective songs that hold tightly to melancholic melodies and ethereal harmonies. Anchored by ten plus years of songwriting experience and a trail through many genres, Windoe is Ingersoll's new path into a sound all her own that compiles a lush palette of melodic colors over the foundation of simply good songs.
Water Monster
Water Monster
Water Monster is the new side project of Cathedral Pearls vocalist/bass player, Max Harnishfeger. Engaging the soul side of his writing chops and his wide vocal range, Max explores the ins and outs of groove centered electronic dreamscapes. Layered over unique, hand crafted beats and one of a kind synth loops, Water Monster adds a human element of acoustic instruments like the kalimba and guitar into each song. Leaving the audience with ever-present knowledge that this group has an equally weighing grasp of technology and musical integrity. With a strong single release of the song "Rest" in the spring of 2014 and a debut EP titled "Survive The Night" Water Monster is quickly becoming one of the most exciting bands to watch this year in Spokane. Follow @wtrmnstr on Twitter and Instagram and watermonstermusic on Tumblr to watch this project unfold.
Jenny Anne Mannan
Jenny Anne Mannan
Northwest native Jenny Anne Mannan began her musical education at a tender age, touring with her family’s bluegrass band, The Bullas, and garnering awards at fiddle contests along the way. In 1998 she moved to Nashville with her brother Luke Bulla, where the pair co-founded a band and became fixtures in the Nashville bluegrass scene. Jenny Anne toured with country songwriter Paul Overstreet, and was often a guest of artists such as Ricky Skaggs, Chris Jones, and Jim Lauderdale. Since her return to Spokane, WA, where she currently lives with her husband, author Caleb Mannan and their 4 children, she has released a solo record, Saints and Sinners, in addition to lending fiddle and vocals to Irish band An Dochas. She has been a recurring guest of Sean and Sara Watkins on their critically acclaimed show Watkins Family Hour and has played with John Cowan at the legendary Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Her songs have been recorded by John Cowan ("Little Match Girl", Comfort & Joy) and Sara Watkins ("Lock & Key", Sun Midnight Sun). Jenny Anne’s music pays homage to her bluegrass roots as she chronicles the westward journey of a generation, a family, and a sound, in a style all her own. She is an American Songstress.
