Eastern Souvenirs is the recording project of Seattle-based songwriter and producer Brian Fisher. It began in early 2014 as a bedroom recording project utilizing Nepalese, Indian and Sri Lankan percussion instruments sent back as gifts from Fisher's in-laws overseas. There is a distant world-folk influence in the arpeggiating classical guitar interludes that's hard to put your finger on geographically and an immersive backdrop of analog synthesizers and mangled samples.
Stephanie Mae is a Seattle-based indie pop artist with soulful vocals and a knack for writing memorable hooks. Her original music, covers, and music videos have garnered over 120,000 views on YouTube. She has made waves in the Seattle music scene, and has opened for popular acts such as Hey Ocean!, the Belle Game, Yeasayer, and Dispatch. Her most recent single, "Million", was described as "pop at its best - meaningful, witty, well-executed, and accessible" by Seattle's "Wandering Ear" blog.
Fans around the world connect with Stephanie’s lyrically-daring and melodically-touching music. Fans frequently express the meaningful impact that her lyrics and artistry has on their lives. Stephanie Mae's song "Trust" prompted a young couple in Washington D.C. to rethink their recent break up. They are now happily married with a 3-year old son. On the other side of the globe, two Australian lovebirds chose to walk down the aisle to Stephanie Mae's heart-wrenching cover of The Civil War's "Safe & Sound."
