Walking Papers is an American rock band from Seattle, Washington, formed in 2012. Formed by Jeff Angell (vocals, guitar) of The Missionary Position and Barrett Martin (drums, percussion) formerly of the Screaming Trees, they would add former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, and The Missionary Position's Benjamin Anderson (keyboards) to the lineup following their contributions to the debut album.
The Black Tones
Simply put...The Black Tones are like a mixture of Kurt Cobain and cornbread.
Consisting of founders/twin siblings Eva Walker on guitar/vocals and Cedric Walker on drums, the blues- and punk-based dynamo continuously project subversion, power and the potential for something new on stage.
Born and raised in Seattle WA, they credit their family's New Orleans roots as an influence on their music and writing.
During the past year, the band’s name has been on the tongue of nearly everyone who follows the richness of Seattle music. In 2018, the group opened for Death Cab for Cutie at the historic Paramount Theater during its 90th Anniversary celebration; became the most played band on KEXP (on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s assassination) with their song, “The Key of Black (They Want Us Dead)”; and performed at countless summer festivals from Doe Bay to the Capitol Hill Block Party.
