Dum Spiro Spero
Many bands come and go, but Dum Spiro Spero is here to stay for as long as they are alive. The band's name, Dum Spiro Spero, is Latin for "While I Breathe I Hope", and the group has been breathing and hoping and bringing new life to music and new music to life for over 7 years now.
The band was originally formed on a train traveling north to Seattle after seeing a passage of poetry tattooed on a stranger aboard. The passage became the band's name and motto from that moment forward. They incorporated the message along with the many various forms of music they were inspired by to drive the direction they would go in. The band feels they cross many genres such as Hard Folk, Gothic Americana, and Alternative Rock without ever falling stagnant into one concrete sound. Though this variation in genre and tone can vary from song to song, Dum Spiro Spero says, "our music is unified by a driving theme: The creative rebirth of hope out of the decay of apathy and destruction. We weave new tapestries of soundscape that sets us apart from the common thread. We have dreams of travel, music, art, self sufficiency, land stewardship, bringing people together and changing the world."
Three For Silver
Three For Silver plays Top 40 music from an alternate universe where the bass-banjo is more popular than the electric guitar.
It's like finding a word for an emotion you could never describe but always felt. If it's folk music, no one has found it's country of origin.
