Super Sparkle is a retro influenced super-group pop band from Spokane, Washington that formed in March of 2016. Members of Cathedral Pearls, Mama Doll, Scott Ryan, Windoe and Water Monster gathered to collaborate on a new type of songwriting effort. To create songs that are undeniable and full of hooks, yet thoughtful and intricately put together. Almost like the pop music of a bygone era. Since then, they’ve become a force in the Spokane music scene creating fun, upbeat songs that can get any audience smiling, dancing and singing along.
With the addition of backup dancers in April of 2017 and the release of their first EP, Super Sparkle has become quickly one of the most beloved bands in Eastern Washington. The Inlander says,
“For when you absolutely, positively have to get your groove on, consider Super Sparkle. The collective effort of a heaping crew of Spokane’s finest musicians, this “sparkly retro indie-pop” band has a way with creating hooks for days, as exemplified by their brand new EP that arrived this spring. If glorious harmonies, guitars that make you move your ass and insistent horn blasts are your thing, this is not a band you’ll want to miss.”
DEAN! is a Portland-based Soul/Pop band born from the minds of Luke and Rachael Price. Music born from the diverse influences of vintage Soul, old Pop, Americana, their cat named Biscuits, donuts, and fried chicken. DEAN!'s raw harmonies and soul-influenced guitar, culminate in undeniable chemistry. With two voices and an old electric hollow-body, they create music that is honest, timeless, yet uniquely new.
