Even with her cover of instrumental tunes, one gets the sense that she is feeling the music’s message all the way to her core. Rochelle with Evan Flory-Barnes, Andy Coe and D’Vonne Lewis, this is the core of the New House Orchestra.

About Spencer and Sequoia:
Spencer and Sequoia are a husband and wife duo touring the East Coast, wowing audiences with their unique blend of Pop, Folk, Jazz and RnB. Fresh off two successful single releases, a nomination at the 2016 Independent Music Awards, and features across the web and in print (including Borns Music, Pause and Play, and even Relix Magazine), they release their debut EP this fall.

Spencer and Sequoia began as an intercontinental musical collaboration via email. In her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand, Sequoia would write and record demos. Those demos would get sent to Spencer, a Seattleite living in New York. He would then work on the songs with his band, and they'd send their work back to Sequoia. When she finally made the trip to America to perform with the band, what started as a musical connection became much more. Come see the dynamic duo share their love and music, and celebrate the release of their Debut EP!

“...this vital, direct approach only enhances the emotional honesty and integrity in the songs”
- Born Music

About Alex Ashley:
“Masterfully weaving the old with the new, Alex Ashley brings fresh eyes and an old soul to the gritty realities of life and love lost. With an unorthodox approach [speaking of his method of playing guitar upside down and backwards], Ashley delivers heartfelt vocals and wields his well-worn six-string to stir fresh reflection on the human condition in a way only honest American music can. And that’s what he makes - real music of the tortured and fiercely independent West, rooted firmly in the musical traditions of country and rock & roll.” — Dillon Honcoop, Cascade Radio Group

“Alex Ashley’s … songwriting takes you inside yourself and then out, impressing the beauty and danger of the complex world we live in, the heart is best kept safe through lyrical wanderings… A singer-songwriter to watch for, and listen to in these days of ours…”—Zan Agzigian, Host/Producer, 91.1 KPBX Spokane Public Radio

A rare, triple-threat singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, Alex Ashley creates an electrifying amalgam of insightful lyrics, profound storytelling, sultry, smoky vocals and razor-sharp guitar playing that brings his songs to life with nostalgic effervescence. Described as a combination of Jackson Browne, Eric Clapton and "a young Vince Gill," Ashley crosses the boundaries of folk, blues and Americana music with new and original songwriting.

9:00pm | Doors at 8:30pm

Tickets: $8 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

5 Seattle neighborhood venues, 5 nights of shows – Respect My Region & All Star Opera are proud to present the “Seattle World Tour.” From January 9th through the 13th, All Star Opera is joining forces with 15 Northwest artists to bring live music to your ears and gather clothing and monetary donations for Mary’s Place, a local organization serving homeless women, children, and families in emergency situations. From Greenwood (1/9), Fremont (1/10), Belltown (1/11), and Capitol Hill (1/12), to Columbia City (1/13), folks from all over the city have the opportunity to both support local music and give back to your communities, at each show. All profits from official Seattle World Tour merchandise (t-shirts and posters) will go directly to Mary’s Place, as well.

An eclectic array of talent and musical genres will be on display: All Star Opera, Bad News Botanists, Bambu Bokony, Baywitch, Camila Recchio, Cold Comfort, Decent At Best, DJ J-Nasty, Emma Lee Toyoda, Guayaba, LA, Remember Face, Retrospecter, SUS, Taylar Elizza Beth, and The Landmarks will all be lending their talents to the series. The “Seattle World Tour” is truly a rare communal event, in which local hip-hop, jazz, rock, electronic, mad girl rock, indie rock, folk, R&B, and more will merge together ceremoniously, over the course of five days.

Head to allstaropera.com/seattle-world-tour for more details about the tour, supplies most needed for Mary’s Place, and our additional sponsors!

All Star Opera:

Bohemian Hip Hop/Jazz

At the surface level, All Star Opera is a 6-piece hip-hop/jazz band based out of Seattle – dig a little deeper, and you will find a collective of artists balancing a diversity of talents and influences.

The band is fronted by MC's (and lifelong friends) Oz & Flow Carter. Supplying the backbone of tight rhythmic grooves are drummer Tylee Toyoda and bassist, Keith Gledhill. Heavy licks + tasteful melodies echoed out by guitarist Will Greenburg, or the soulful chords produced by singer-songwriter, Seth From Above on keys. Although the "Opera" in the band name is just a metaphor, all 6 of their voices can be heard on hooks and/or backup vocals. MC, Flow Carter, gets down on trumpet when he is not rapping, both on record and live.

Voted 'Best Band In Seattle' in August 2017 via the Seattle Weekly, ASO has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time.

Cold Comfort:

Cold Comfort cultivated their rambunctious, upbeat rock and roll playing together around the bonfires and beach parties of their youth. Growing up together in Port Townsend, Washington, Cold Comfort’s music evolved and matured to reflect the enduring bonds of its bandmates. Their songs crackle with life, possessing a depth of emotion uncommon to the work of songwriters so young. Ringing guitars, steely percussion, and infectious rhythms are crafted into a refined sound, yet the feeling is still raw. Effortless soulful howls punctuate soaring vocal harmonies, while lyrics dance from bruisingly honest to gleefully irreverent.

Eve & Day // Britt and Rich

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Eve & Day is a Seattle-based soul singer songwriter duo. Natalie Paige met Anthony Lee Phillips in search of a lead guitarist, and lightning struck. From eager beginnings playing outside a Fremont bus stop, to developing fresh collaborative music, Natalie and Anthony are thrilled to bring bright and energized tunes to the Royal Room!

Music:
"Let Me Be"
"We Don't Even Know Each Other"
"Chardonnay"

A Seattle-based Jazz/Blues duet playing original music written by members Brittany Allyson and Richard Laqueur. Since meeting in Fall 2017, they have been collaborating on each other's tunes with the focus to explore and expand their individual sounds, dynamics and artistry.

Brittany is a professional Actor and CoFounder of Filament: A Collab Lab, a Seattle-based lab theatre company. Her first solo album entitled HERe* will be theatrically-staged in several Seattle music venues as presented by Filament in March 2018. To get connected, please email: thebrittanyallyson@gmail.com.

Richard has been playing guitar for several years and began writing and singing original tunes about a year ago. He has been playing around the Seattle open mic scene performing covers and, now, original music -- with the intention of gathering more musicians to form a group to write and gig together.

Britt and Rich perform a mixture of individually and collaboratively written tunes with an improvisational approach, so each performance is a new musical conversation! They are actively seeking other local musicians to form a larger ensemble and for the theatrical-realization of HERe*.

Both are grateful to be a part of the supportive and talented Seattle music scene and are open to sharing bills and collaborating on more projects!

Seattle JazzED is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which was founded in 2010 by Laurie de Koch, Shirish Mulherkar, Clarence Acox and Robert Knatt. Laurie wanted kids to get great music education opportunities, regardless of what school they went to or how much money they had.

JazzED started out with two jazz ensembles that met weekly. Since then, the roster of programs has grown to include many more ensembles, masterclasses, summer camps, vocal ensembles, combo training, an all-city girls band and jam sessions. Now over 500 students from 70+ different schools come through the doors every year.

Opera on Tap (OOT) was born in 2005 at Freddy’s Bar and Backroom in Brooklyn and incorporated in 2007 to promote opera as a viable, living and progressive art form and to support the developing artists who continue to keep the art form alive. What began as a small monthly gathering of ambitious, classically trained singers looking for more performance opportunities, has grown into a producing organization that has gained a loyal audience base and national recognition as an innovative force on the classical music scene. Through its Chapter program, which now has sixteen vibrant national chapters, OOT has created a large network of performers, creators, and supporters.

Hopscotch

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

HOPSCOTCH is the musical duo of singer/songwriter Jeanie Mishler and composer and pianist Charlie Hiestand. Along with standards from the Great American Songbook, they've collaborated with an accomplished collection of Seattle players to bring to life songs they've co-written and arranged. Their music offers up a rich variety of new jazz, drawing from swing, blues, latin, funk, and hip-hop.

Their 2014 debut album, HOPSCOTCH, received instant radio play at jazz stations across the country, including KKJZ, Los Angeles, CA, KSDS, San Diego, CA, WKGC, Panama City, FL, WJSU, Jackson, MS, KNIK, Anchorage, AK to name a few.

Influenced by bands like Pink Martini, both Jeanie and Charlie write songs that pay homage to the rich tradition of jazz song structure, with rhythms and harmonies that support rhyme schemes that make sense--nothing minimalist or reductive about them.

They've developed a sound that is simultaneously both retro and current with grooves that give them a fresh feel. "Hopscotch features the fluid vocal styling of the very talented Jean Mishler fronting an ensemble of Seattle's best players on a set of fresh poppy jazz infused with classic style." Rick J Bowen--Seattle Examiner.

Django's Birthday

6:00pm | Doors at 5:00pm

Gypsy jazz musicians from around Puget Sound will celebrate Django Reinhardt’s 108th birthday with an evening of music. The party will be hosted by two bands, Nuages and Ranger and the ‘Re-Arrangers’, plus other top Seattle Gypsy Jazz musicians will make guest appearances.

Django was an itinerant Gypsy who earned international acclaim in the 1930’s. Many of his compositions became jazz classics and he is considered one of the top guitar soloists of all time. Duke Ellington referred to Django as “the most creative jazz musician to originate anywhere outside the United States.” Decades later, Jerry Garcia said, “Even today, nobody has really come to the state that he was playing at…nobody plays with the whole fullness of expression that Django had.”

Nuages blends the music of Django Reinhardt with modern jazz concepts. Bandleader Michael Gurule plays soprano sax with a fiery passion--it's like Sidney Bechet and Django Reinhardt got together to jam! Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” Both groups have performed at North America’s top gypsy jazz festival, Djangofest Northwest.

The evening will feature a mix of swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, and the music of Django Reinhardt. Says Sciacca: “Our goal is to make this a really fun show, featuring as many great Gypsy jazz players as we can.”

Spontaneous Combustion presents The City of Tomorrow

7:30pm-9:00pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets: $20 General Admission / $12 students (door only w/ID)
Tickets available here

The City of Tomorrow:
Avant-garde wind quintet The City of Tomorrow performs a program with custom theatrical lighting design by Alex Deahl. The music of this concert reflects spatial relationships, visual elements, and the divisions between the introverted and the extroverted. Included is Seattle-based composer John Teske’s Topographies, a graphic score based on topographical maps, which the quintet will use as a basis for improvisation and movement on stage.

Hans Abrahamsen’s wind quintet, called Walden, calls to mind the very nature of introvertedness, which can be a kind of retirement to think and reflect. Jacob Druckman’s wind quintet, which includes an electronic accompaniment, is a joyous conversation between past and future. Put together with the lighting design, which the five members of The City of Tomorrow control themselves, this concert is an immersive exploration of relationships between the aural and visual, quiet and loud, and near and far.

Also featuring music by Julia Wolfe, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Alex Temple.
