Seattle for Nepal With special guests: Kathy Moore, RL Heyer, Barrett Martin, Mike Musburger, Kim Virant, Jamie Nova, Jeff Fielder, Shawn Smith and Chris Friel and more to come

Genre: Benefit , Everything

  1. Wednesday, July 08 7:30 PM (All ages)

The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 8,800 people and injured more than 23,000. It occurred on 25 April, with a magnitude of 7.8-8.1. It was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. The earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing at least 19, making it the deadliest day on the mountain in history. It triggered another huge avalanche in the Langtang valley, where 250 people were reported missing.

Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened, across many districts of the country. Centuries-old buildings were destroyed at UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley, including some at the Kathmandu Durbar Square, the Patan Durbar Squar, the Bhaktapur Durbar Square, the Changu Narayan Temple and the Swayambhunath Stupa. Geophysicists and other experts had warned for decades that Nepal was vulnerable to a deadly earthquake, particularly because of its geology, urbanization, and architecture.

This benefit will mean so much to the families. Three people from the U.S. died in the Langtang trekking region in Nepal -- the two teens from Seattle (Sydney Schumacher and Bailey Meola) and Dawn Habash, a woman from Portland, Maine. Dawn's family is flying out for the fundraiser, so it should be a very emotional time.

Shane Koyczan & The Short Story Long

Genre: Alt Country , Indie , Rock , Singer-songwriter , Spoken Word

  1. Wednesday, August 05 8:00 PM (All ages)

Shane Koyczan is an award winning Canadian Poet, Author and Performer. Shane Koyczan and the Short Story Long originally came together to play one show in 2006.  After the positive response from their first show they decided to play another.  This soon lead to a tour that took them through BC. They made their first EP titled The Crickets Have Arthritis which was recorded by Aaron Goodwin in 2006.  Some of those songs then made it onto the album, A Pretty Decent Cape in my Closet,  which was also recorded by Aaron Goodwin and released in 2008.  Dan Mangan collaborated on two songs featured on the album. Album art work by Andrew Dimitt. Their most recent album, Remembrance Year (2011) features "To This Day", the video that went viral on Youtube.  Corwin Fox recorded, mixed and mastered the album at Pleasantville and Skyler Punnett created the album artwork. This album featured a collection of extremely talented musicians.

The world took notice of Shane Koyczan when his influential, anti-bullying, To This Day Project video went viral in early 2013 and has reached over 14 million views and counting.

Powerfully engaging and authentic in attitude, Shane’s explorations are relevant to our times in the way that Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen were to theirs. But unlike the musicians that he’s often compared to, poets rarely infiltrate pop culture.  Shane emerges in a new wave of 21st century poetry that dares to belong to the people and speak directly to them in their own voice.

Shane is both a writer and spoken word virtuoso. His first published collection, Visiting Hours, was the only work of poetry selected by both the Guardian and the Globe and Mail for their Best Books of the Year lists in 2005. Destined to become a future classic, Visiting Hours is now in its third edition, and includes We Are More, performed by Shane at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Shane Koyczan however, is best known for his award winning spoken word performances. With his rhythmic verse in high gear, he navigates his audience through social and political territory with a furious honesty and a tender humanity that has brought audiences to their feet in New York, London, Edinburgh, Sydney and Los Angeles, to name a few. He received 5 star reviews for his performance at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the video, Instructions for a Bad Day, was showcased as the 2012 Vancouver International Film Festival. Winner of the US Slam Poetry Championship and the Canadian Spoken Word Olympics, Shane is truly an extraordinary talent that has blown the dust off of the designation “poet”.

Shawn Colvin

Genre: Singer-songwriter

In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor. In the 23 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, released ten albums, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, and created a remarkable canon of work.

Colvin was born in Vermillion, South Dakota, where she lived until she was eight. A small-town childhood in the university town of Carbondale, Illinois, drew her to the guitar by the age of 10. She made her first public appearance on campus at the University of Illinois at age 15. By the late 1970s Colvin was singing in a Western Swing band in Austin, Texas—the city she now calls home. Moving to New York at the decade’s end she remained in the country music field as a member of the Buddy Miller Band until she met producer, guitarist, and co-writer John Leventhal. Leventhal inspired Colvin to find her own voice as a songwriter. She began honing her skill, and was soon signed to Columbia records Her first album, Steady On won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording.

Shawn Mullins

Genre: Singer-songwriter

Since we last heard from Shawn Mullins on 2008’s honeydew, the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter and bandleader has undergone a series of transformative experiences, leading to a second coming for the veteran artist. Evidence of Mullins’ newfound level of musical and lyrical ambition courses comes through with Light You Up (Vanguard Records, Oct. 12). This captivating new song cycle will likely be viewed as a flat-out revelation even by Mullins’ most fervent fans.

His experiences included an indoctrination into the collaborative creative process by numerous bouts of intensive co-writing, in one instance putting him atop of the country charts via a key contribution to the Zac Brown Band’s “Toes,” marking his third #1 single, following 1999’s “Lullaby” and the 2006 Triple A/Americana chart-topper “Beautiful Wreck.” Further co-writing yielded nine of the 11 songs on the new album, which Mullins believes represents the strongest, most expressive writing of his distinguished career. All of this creative activity was topped off by the birth of Shawn’s first child, Murphy, in August of 2009.

“Even in the hospital with our new son, something changed for me,” Mullins recalls. “It was almost like nothing else mattered. It feels that different now. And at the same time, co-writing has become a sort of community for me.”

These two crucial realizations are at the center of Light You Up. The new album reaches out, boldly and magnanimously, into present-day existence—and at times like these, like-minded individuals can find strength in numbers. In this sense, the process that brought the new album to life parallels its underlying theme of banding together. Light You Up is an ensemble album through and through, the result of creative interaction from the writing through the recording. Tracking began with two weeks of playing and recording live at Mullins’ rustic Georgia cabin with his core musicians—drummer Gerry Hansen, bassist Patrick Blanchard and guitarist Davis Causey . The project continued with the addition of Hammond B3 organ and other keyboards from Marty Kearns, pedal steel from Dan Dugmore and Clay Cook, saxes from Tom Ryan, a string quartet and additional percussion.

The album opens with the devastating one-two punch of the cinematic “California”—which instantly takes its place alongside such latter-day Cali classics as Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’,” David & David’s “Welcome to the Boomtown,” Beck’s “Earthquake Weather” and Mullins’ own chart-topper “Lullaby”—and the smoldering, zeitgeist-capturing title track. In terms of their dramatic payloads, these two songs are of a piece, delving into the tattered yet resilient heart of the American Dream. The California setting, to which Mullins returns on “Tinseltown,” functions as a microcosm of our collective journey from wide-eyed innocence through bitter experience to the possibility of personal and collective renewal.

Jaspar Lepak (pronounced JAS-per LEE-pack) is a folk/Americana songstress whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry. A child of the Sonoran Desert, her songs are deeply influenced by the many places she has called home: Tucson, Minneapolis, Durban (South Africa), and currently Seattle. Sweeping across landscapes with an emotional depth that is extraordinary, her lyrics expose a brave vulnerability while her clear, pure voice touches the heart. "you’ll find more than enough beauty and original charm to make you a fan.” ~ Rolling Stone South Africa

A performing, recording and touring artist for more than half her lifetime, Amanda West sings to heal the world and remind us all of our beautiful interconnectedness. Her songs explore topics from humanity’s impact on the planet, to musings on women’s role in society, intimate stories of love and family, and recipes for self empowerment and cultural evolution. She is also co-founder of Womb Song Santa Cruz (singing circles for pregnant women). "She holds the healing power of music in her songs" ~ Roanne Weisman, award-winning author

Terry Holder's award winning songs are getting her noticed. Gifted with a voice to break your heart and with a touching display of emotive vocals, she weaves her songs from the heart and soul. Winner of the 2013 “Wildflower Songwriting Competition” in Richardson Texas, she has also been selected four times as a “Kerrville New Folk Finalist" at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival and as a 2014 finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. "If you haven’t paid attention to the music of Terry Holder, slap yourself, hard." ~ Matthew Moeller, Victory Review Magazine
