Named one of the “Best New Seattle Bands” by Seattle Magazine, Lemolo is a dream-pop duo comprised of Poulsbo natives Meagan Grandall and Kendra Cox. The girls became instant friends as kayaking instructors on the waters off of Lemolo Shore Drive, where they learned of their shared love for music and adventure. Their latest album, The Kaleidoscope, was included in KEXP’s “Top 50 Listener Voted Albums of 2012” list, was a number one best-seller at Sonic Boom Records and was also chosen for Google Play’s “Best Unsigned Artists of 2012” album collection. The energy these two produce live is a “force to be reckoned with,” according to Three Imaginary Girls, and Sound on the Sound adds that Lemolo leaves the listener “aching for more.”
It is literally from out of the blue that pianist/singer-songwriter Sara Jackson-Holman was launched onto the national music scene. For the then 20 year-old Whitworth University piano and writing student from Bend, Oregon, nothing could have prepared her for the trajectory her life was about to take; propelling her from student life, to recording her first CD, to hearing her debut single “Into the Blue” (from her debut album When You Dream) close out the ABC hit show Castle in the emotional Season 2 finale, all in a matter of months. Recently, her songs have been placed in MTV’s Chelsea Settles, CW’s Ringer, Grey’s Anatomy and Switched at Birth. Her debut; garnered rave reviews and comparisons to chanteuses Adele, Amy Winehouse and Feist.
“The second time’s the charm, at least it is for Sara Jackson-Holman. Her second album, Cardiology, offers a rousing round of poignant and entrancing music, taking an enchanting voice and coupling it with piano and electronic accompaniment.” -Celebrity Cafe
The Cabin Project
“For the past 10 years, singer/songwriter Katie Sawicki– a Connecticut native who made her way to Portland, OR via Brooklyn – has been making her way across the country singing her “deeply original poetic expressions” in a traditional acoustic folk/Americana style that has, until now, been her signature sound. While it was all the Boston contemporary folkies that helped shape her initial approach to songwriting, today, that signature sound has evolved into a project that Sawicki calls “Chamber Folk” or “Indie, emo-rock,” with her latest effort and fourth studio release, The Cabin Project. – Ana Ammann
