Trego (FKA Folkinception)
Folkinception's musical roots rise from the great American folk tradition and extend far into the realm of Americana and Rock n Roll. The essence of the music derives from the band’s collaborative songwriting process. Inspiring themes of hope, struggle, authenticity, love, and humor echo throughout the songs in a personable way, allowing each listener to connect to the music from their own individual perspective. The band has been praised for their ability to “build a song from a whisper to a roar”. Cello, violin, harmonica and vocal harmonies layer together to provide a unique musical identity; while electric guitar and organ vary between nuanced textures and soaring climactic heights. Drums, bass, acoustic guitar and piano round out the instrumentation and act as the driving, rhythmic force behind the songs.

Since the band’s inception in 2011 Folkinception has evolved into a regional fan favorite; supporting many of the great up and coming, independent bands touring the Northwest today. Folkinception has shared the stage with Fruition, Hot Buttered Rum, The Lil' Smokies, Dead Winter Carpenters, Polecat, Hillstomp, Cornmeal and many more.
The Holy Broke
The Holy Broke
The Holy Broke (Spokane, WA), ambiguous name for the growling solo work of Kent Ueland, encapsulates his dark, messy music and all its jagged shards. You won't find stained glass tributes to lost loves or idle words about a better life in his lyrics. No, Ueland is the busted and bitter. Equal parts the man sunken into his couch and the snarling boy smiling through his bleeding upper lip, the classic country riffs carry Ueland's vocals through a debauched journey into heartache. The relatable simplicity of struggling to pay rent, eat a decent meal, or even get out of bed give his songwriting a surprising power. There lies the ambiguity. Has something holy been broken? Is it a form of holiness to be broke? Is there no such thing as the concept, "holy," to begin with? Look for the forthcoming album Do It Yourself this winter, listen to it when you're down on your luck, listen to it to celebrate not being there, but most of all listen. An injured dog is howling.
