Cody Beebe & The Crooks
"With Cody Beebe & The Crooks, a new breed of Southern Rock is alive and well, and oddly enough, it comes from the Northwest." -Derek Tobias, Examiner.com
Cody Beebe & The Crooks make rock music that is inspired by the frontier attitude of the American Heartland. When you hear CBC, you hear the West and its country, Americana, and blues roots. However, rather than eclectic, the music comes off with a directness and honesty that is the unpretentious nature of real rock and roll.
That realness is part of their heritage as a Seattle band. Cody Beebe & The Crooks continue the city's tradition of shirking the day's fashion in favor of playing music that they find meaningful. It has proved contagious and kept them on the road for the last five years. In that time the band has honed their craft and founded a tight brotherhood that is audible in the studio and on stage.
Cody Beebe & The Crooks have performed in more than 30 states, recorded two full-length albums, created Chinook Fest (an independent roots-rock festival), and built a grass-roots fan base with vibrant, high-energy performances. They have shared stages with Buddy Guy, Stevie Nicks, Iron and Wine, Jimmie Vaughan, K.D. Lang, Allen Stone, Augustana, Josh Turner, Reckless Kelly, Randy Rogers Band, Cody Canada and The Departed, Vicci Martinez, Jerry Jeff Walker, Micky and The Motorcars, Vanessa Carlton, Andy Griggs, Rooney, and many others.
The Good Hurt
Seattle-based Indie / Pop / Rock outfit The Good Hurt will take the stage one last time after three years of writing, recording and touring the Western US regularly. Having played at major industry festivals such as SXSW, CMJ, and NAMM, the band has put a lot of miles behind them, both musically and literally. With clean front-driven pop vocals from James Lanman supported by a tight rhythm section and catchy guitar hooks, The Good Hurt makes for an extremely fun live show that will have you singing along for days after the show. The band will be splitting up following this performance to pursue alternative endeavors. A brand new 4-track EP will be released at this show as a gesture of gratitude to the fans who have supported the band through the years.
Coming together from many corners of the world, over the years NoRey have developed a unique sound that reflects the diversity of the bands members.
With an eclectic mix of cultural ideas and influences - NoRey's music spans a wide range of genres whilst still holding a singular personalized style.
Centered in Seattle, Washington - NoRey are proving themselves as a powerful emerging presence in the northwest music scene and aspire to continue expanding into the global music industry.
Focusing on energetic and engaging live performances, NoRey have developed a strong supporting fan base over the years and will continue in their endeavor to provide new dynamics and interest for their ever expanding audience.
In the studio NoRey have recently finished work on a new 5 track E.P. Like NoRey's debut album the songs were recorded at Contact Create Studios by Steve Feasley & Bubba Jones (Shabazz Palaces, Digable Planets) & mastered by Ed Brooks (Pearl Jam, REM, Fleet Foxes).
Sammy Witness & The Reassignment
Sammy Witness is an accomplished singer-songwriter who blurs the lines between folk and indie-rock. With a vocal range that can be quiet and alluring – hinting towards a jazzier sound – Sammy also has the depth to front what is unconditionally a rock band. Her new band, The Reassignment, is comprised of Seattle natives Nick Fair (guitar) and Colin McLaurin (drums). Recently returned from Boston where they graduated the Berklee College of Music, they have teamed up with Sammy to bring a sound that has been compared to Alanis Morissette and Sheryl Crow, but is altogether their own.
