Cyrus Fell Down – Pullman, WA
Spokane WA’s Cyrus Fell Down meticulously crafts a hurricane of experimental, progressive, video game rock, spiraling with high energy sounds. Boldly displaying their musical abilities with intricate time signatures, aggressive guitar riffs, and uber-passionate stage presence, this trio has mastered the art of chaos and the end effect is quite literally mind-blowing.
Kids Get Hit by Buses – Everett, WA
Using computers, keyboards and game consoles, Kids Get Hit by Buses pack as much extravagance and stage antics in their act as they do hilarious lyrics and effervescent beats. This awesomely weird Everett duo plays chiptune infused electronica, exercising their unique charm and pixilated energy to leave you singing LOL! OMG!
Razpy – Seattle, WA
With a gritty voice that lives up to his name, Razpy leads the Vigilantes with thoughtful lyrics and powerful delivery. This 6-piece group creates their own genre of rap by adding rock and R&B sounds through soulful female and male vocals and a tight backing band which includes cello, keys, beats, bass, viola and guitar.
“When Im Down”
SOL - Seattle, WA
Seattle hip-hop artist, SOL uses his music as a catalyst for stimulating the senses. His music is high-energy, and brings together personal and social statements from the music industry to world politics. Influenced by Langston Hughes, Bob Marley and De La Soul, this wordsmith takes a page from some of the greats but creates his own voice in Seattle’s hip-hop scene.
