A Cedar Suede w/ Maiah Manser

Genre: Everything

  1. Monday, March 09 7:30 PM (All ages)

A Cedar Suede celebrates the release of their highly anticipated debut, full-band album, The Legend of the Great T.D. Bingo: an epic saga through steamy jungles, scorched deserts, pastoral romance, and virtuosic drama.

Cinematic World-Fusion:

“…their sound is so diverse and distinct that one moment you’ll hear an Afro-Cuban beat you’re moving your feet to, and the next second you’re pondering if you’re catching a hint of bluegrass in the same song.” Seattle Art Museum

Founded in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood by Cornish alums, Harold Belskus (Guitar) and Jamie Maschler (Accordion), the two often performed as an intimate duet or trio, featuring violinist, Amanda Fitch. Rooted in Latin and Mediterranean influences, their early music consisted of simple, though rich harmonic textures with layers of impassioned improvisation. After only a few months of collaborating, they released their 2011 self-titled, self-produced, debut EP. It was immediately well-received, followed by radio play and performances across the Pacific Northwest, California, and Colorado.

The infectious appeal of this small group began to draw the attention of peers, many suggesting that the group expand in size and sound to reach their full potential. So in 2013, they gathered some of the most vibrant and talented players in the Seattle area. Additional horns and a full rhythm section seamlessly fused their classical and jazz traditions in a manner that draws respect from the most critical listeners, and still gets people up and dancing. Their music has been compared to Chic Corea, Beirut, Devotchka, and Snarky Puppy.

Each tune tells its own grand adventure, and this is just the beginning...

Maiah Manser

After experiencing Maiah perform in a dimly lit night club in October of 2013, Damon Christopher Moore of Electrokitty put out a helping hand to bring her music to fruition. After she produced the entire song herself, Maiah finally took the plunge with Damon to produce her latest single "Hold Your Head Up" in the studio. Terence Ankeny of Zoolab and Garrett Reynolds also assisted in the creation of the song with Branden Clarke polishing it in mastering.  Maiah plans to work with Damon to finish the rest of her EP coming in spring of 2015.  Her music has been compared to Bjork, Fiona Apple, Jeff Buckley and Florence and the Machine. For Maiah, It is essential for her to focus on the world we live in today when formulating songs. Living in a dichotomy of a digital vs. organic world, she strives to craft music that reflects this 21st century conundrum and reconcile the present in order to connect. With this, you might hear lush orchestral sounds paired with electronic beats and samples.  Likewise, she has always been drawn to visual art and finds ways to incorporate her visual aesthetics by collaborating with talented local artists such as  Joshua Taylor, Josie Simonet, Domenic Barbero, Casey Sjogren, Chelsea Rodino and many others.  Maiah has also recently recorded on tracks and co-written for Manatee Commune, The Theoretics, and Zoolab while also working with artists such as Mary Lambert, Whitney Lyman, and Pollens.

Albert Cummings

Genre: Blues Guitar

  1. Sunday, July 19 7:30 PM (All ages)




Breaking every cliche associated with the blues while producing some of the most powerful music of the 21st century comes natural to Albert Cummings. The Massachusetts native learned the requisite three chords on the guitar from his father, but then switched to playing banjo at age 12 and became a fan of bluegrass music. Before graduating he heard the early recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan, however, and was floored by the virtuosity. While in college he saw Vaughan perform and he returned to the guitar with a new outlook and resolve. Not until he was 27, an age when other musicians were either already established or had long ago put their dream aside for the realities of life, did Albert finally decide to go for it.

An intense period of wood shedding resulted Albert sharing a bill with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section. So taken with Albert's fire and passion were bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton that they volunteered to play on and produce his debut recording. In 2003 the aptly-titled From the Heart (Under the Radar), with the awesome power of a Nor'easter and the soul of a natural born artist.

Tours and shows with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and others brought his music to an audience grateful for the opportunity to be rocked hard by a man possessed to play every song like his life depended on it.

Albert Cummings is a man of his times and the man for the times. He has built his own musical edifice that expresses his thoughts and dreams. It is a vision that alternately excites and soothes while also clearly providing a glimpse of his unlimited future. The best is yet to come.

Allen Stone w/ Maiah Manser

Genre: Singer-songwriter , Soul

  1. Monday, April 13 7:30 PM (All ages)

As part of the launch of Greenlight Media and Marketing’s “Evolution of an Artist” digital content series, critically acclaimed musician and Washington native Allen Stone will perform five hometown shows in Seattle, WA April 13-18, 2015.

The unique “Evolution of an Artist” series will recreate Allen’s rise as a live performer in Seattle’s music scene. Starting with one of the first venues Allen ever played back in 2008, the (300 capacity) Triple Door on April 13th, to headlining the majestic Paramount Theatre on April 18th (2,807 capacity). Other venues he will play during the week include Nectar Lounge (4/14),

The Crocodile (4/16), and Neumos (4/17). All shows will feature up and coming local Seattle bands as support.

Allen recalls, “When I moved from Chewelah WA to Seattle WA I was terrified. I was a tiny fish in a gigantic pond, a pond with an extremely rich history of powerful music. However, what I found was a very supportive community of music lovers and players that put me on their back and helped make my dream a reality. I am most comfortable performing my songs in Seattle so revealing my new songs and recounting the evolution of my musical experience there is going to be mad fun!”

“We’ve been promoting shows with Allen from the beginning,” says Ryan Cook from Seattle Theatre Group. “To be able to recreate Allen’s growth as an artist during an entire week is something we’ve never done before. We couldn’t be more proud to help Seattle celebrate Allen’s success.”

During this six-night stand, Allen and his band will play both old favorites and new tunes from his forthcoming Capitol Records debut, Radius. Seattle’s rich musical heritage that includes everybody from Jimi Hendrix to Pearl Jam to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis serves as an enlightening backdrop for Allen’s ‘Evolution of an Artist’ week. With his knack for musical innovation and incendiary performance style, Allen maintains his musical roots while simultaneously forging a path of his own and continues to take soul down a new avenue.

Currently, Allen is in the studio putting the finishing touches on Radius with producers Benny Cassette, Malay, and Swedish musician Magnus Tingsek. They have already recorded on two continents with sessions in Malmö, Sweden and Allen’s cabin studio in Chewelah, WA. The first single is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

“The ‘Evolution of an Artist’ program is a reflection of an artist’s journey to success,” said Dominic Sandifer, president of GreenLight Media & Marketing. “Everyone, whether an artist or not, began their careers somewhere – and this series encourages the fans and artists to retrace their footsteps while moving on towards the next chapter. Allen is the perfect representation of the series.”

Other partners in the program include Pogoseat, an enterprise solution for sports teams and concert venues that enables their fans to upgrade seats and purchase unique VIP upgrades during events.

An Evening with Alan Doyle

Genre: Pop-Rock , Roots Rock

  1. Thursday, March 05 7:30 PM (All ages)


Alan Doyle, actor, producer, newly-minted best-selling author, and best-known as lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, is set to release his second solo album, So Let’s Go, on January 20. Title-track lead single So Let’s Go, is a rousing rallying cry that’s only further proof of Doyle’s ability to draw the listener under his banner. Equally adept at drawing a crowd, Doyle will be embarking on a North American tour upon album release.

Made in collaboration with Thomas ‘Tawgs’ Salter (Lights, Walk Off The Earth), Jerrod Bettis (Adele, Serena Ryder), Gordie Sampson (Keith Urban, Willie Nelson), and Joe Zook (OneRepublic, Katy Perry), the album follows Doyle’s first solo outing, Boy On Bridge, released in 2012. “If there’s an over-arching theme on this record, it’s one of optimism...not that this is in contrast to my previous doom- laden songs!” laughs Doyle, who says this album is freer than Boy On Bridge in the respect of being open to all influences. “On my last solo record I wanted to explore musical backyards of friends of mine in different parts of the musical world. It was as much a physical as a musical journey away from home. On So Let’ s Go, folks will hear much more stuff from my backyard and all the traditional and Celtic influences I grew up with, married with the most contemporary collaborators out there.” A non-traditional marriage for Doyle was writing his first book simultaneously with the album, the best-selling memoir Where I Belong, released last month.

The album’s eponymous song is consistent with Alan Doyle’s ethos: we’re lucky to be here so let’s make the most of it. This spirit also infuses the heartfelt Take Us Home while Sins of a Saturday

Night celebrates a come-what-may approach. The album also gets reflective in moments, such as the plaintive Laying Down To Perish, inspired by a visit to Fogo Island. As a whole, So Let’s Go remains consistent with Alan Doyle’s enthusiasm for the wider world combined with a love for the comfort of home.

Alan Doyle hails from Petty Harbour, NL, and formed Great Big Sea in 1993 with Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, in which they fused traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double-disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada. So Let’s Go continues to cement Alan Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.”

An Evening with Howard Jones solo - the songs, the piano, and the stories

Genre: Piano , Singer-songwriter

  1. Thursday, May 07 7:30 PM (All ages)

After an extraordinarily successful 2012 which included tours of Japan, UK, USA, Singapore and Australia, Howard Jones continued touring in 2013 which marked 30 years since the release of his first single ‘New Song’ in 1983. A tour of the USA with Erasure’s Andy Bell in August and three very successful special UK concerts in November marked this special milestone.

The August 2013 US Tour included a long overdue return to the legendary Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and a spectacular sold out concert at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga (San Francisco). This was the first time Howard had played The Greek since the eighties. The tour culminated at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City playing to an astonishing 13,000 people. This was the first time Howard had ever played a concert in Mexico.

At the November 2013 30 year celebration UK concerts Howard debuted a brand new suite of songs under the name ‘Engage’ which were presented with bespoke video and multi-projection. The response to this new material was extraordinary with many claiming it was the best music Howard has ever written and performed.

Howard appeared as special guest to Michael Sheen on January 4 2014 at BBC Radio Two in London. Howard performed ‘Hide and Seek’ live and Michael played the world premiere of ‘Human Touch’ from the Engage set.

Howard Jones is playing multiple festival dates in the UK in the summer of 2014 including the Rewind Henley festival on 17 August 2014. He then embarks on a huge US, Canada and South America tour co-headlining with The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey.

It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene with his very English song-writing and pioneering synthesizers. Anyone who was around in the mid to late eighties will remember those high energy gigs and his first two albums Human’s Lib and Dream into Action. They lived in the higher reaches of the album charts in the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Australia and many other countries in the 1984-86 period, and the hits kept coming……..New Song, What is Love?, Pearl in the Shell, Hide and Seek,(which he performed at Live Aid in 1985), Like to Get to Know You Well, Look Mama, Things Can only Get Better, Everlasting Love and the quintessential No One is To Blame, which reached No.1 in the US.

Bill Frisell & Erin Corday "A Night for the Bee: a Benefit for The Common Acre"

Genre: Guitarist , Jazz

  1. Sunday, April 05 7:00 PM (All ages)

"It's hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell." —The New York Times

"Frisell is a revered figure among musicians — like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable." —The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Among jazz guitarists, Frisell is unique in his exploitation of variable timbre. Frisell's sound swells and breathes like a saxophonist's (interestingly, Frisell played clarinet as a child). In many ways his sound is reminiscent of a pedal steel guitar. And although his work is steeped in jazz, Frisell is a man of catholic tastes. His music includes characteristics of rock, country, and bluegrass, among various other styles. Such liberality explains his willingness to expand his tonal palette beyond that of the typical jazz guitarist. Where so many conventional jazz guitarists define themselves by how many notes they can play, Frisell has carved a niche by virtue of his sound. His ability as an original, lyrical player of melody combines with a unique (if much imitated) sound to make him one of the most singular musicians of his generation." (Chris Kelsey, AllMusic)

Over the years, Frisell has contributed to the work of such collaborators as Paul Motian, John Zorn, Elvis Costello, Ginger Baker, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Suzanne Vega, Loudon Wainwright III, Van Dyke Parks, Vic Chesnutt, Rickie, Lee Jones, Ron Sexsmith, Vinicius Cantuaria, Marc Johnson (in "Bass Desires"), Ronald Shannon Jackson and Melvin Gibbs (in "Power Tools"), Marianne Faithful, John Scofield, Jan Garbarek, Lyle Mays, Vernon Reid, Julius Hemphill, Paul Bley, Wayne Horvitz, Hal Willner, Robin Holcomb, Rinde Eckert, The Frankfurt Ballet, film director Gus Van Sant, David Sanborn, David Sylvian, Petra Haden and numerous others, including Bono, Brian Eno, Jon Hassell and Daniel Lanois on the soundtrack for Wim Wenders' film Million Dollar Hotel.

Frisell has released some 50 albums as solo artist or headliner, and featured on over 100 more as a guest musician. His most recent album is Guitar in the Space Age! (Okeh, 2014).
