Sleeping Lessons
Sleeping Lessons
Sleeping Lessons is the latest Seattle indie-rock band on the block made up of Charlie Deane, Paul Kowalczyk, Dan Moretti, and Terence Bonsey. The collective resume of Deane, Kowalczyk, Moretti, and Bonsey precedes them, having played in a variety of projects ranging from international b-boy sensation Don’t Talk To The Cops, Seattle surf staples The Echo Echo Echoes, and backing the indie-folk prodigy Sophia Duccini. While Bonsey was championing basslines to breakdancing competitions around the world; Deane, Moretti and Kowalczyk were busy sharing bills with artists such as Car Seat Headrest, Washed Out, Deep Sea Diver, Diet Cig, STRFKR and even Odesza . In less than a year since their debut on Seattle’s famed Big BLDG Bash Festival main stage, Sleeping Lessons have started to create some serious momentum for themselves across the world with their self-produced debut album Red Sprites.

Already the band has had support from influential radio stations worldwide such as Seattle’s KEXP, Boston’s WEMF, and RKC in Paris. Even rock and roll hall of fame DJ Marco Collins is a fan, calling Red Sprites “one of the best debut records I've heard come out of the NW in a long time!”

Things keep going from strength to strength for the young Seattle band, who returning from their second west coast tour have just been added to a slew of the Pacific Northwest’s most exclusive bills including Capitol Hill Block Party and Fisherman’s Village Music Festival. With 2 west coast tours under their belt and more on the horizon, the future looks bright for Sleeping Lessons.
Sun Seeker
Sun Seeker
Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP – which follows Sun Seeker’s widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016’s “Georgia Dust” b/w “No One Knows” (TMR322) – sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laidback psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies, classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Songs like “With Nothing (But Our Last Words)” and the yearning “Won’t Keep Me Up At Night” meld Benick’s candid lyricism and stark melodies with creative arrangement and production technique, fashioning a sonic world to match their interior emotional scope.

Now all 21, the “bunch of musical friends” at the core of Sun Seeker have been collaborating in some sense since eighth grade. The trio formed a loose collective of combos, playing together in each other’s bands, with Sun Seeker officially convening in January 2013. The band became fast favorites on the Nashville scene, earning word of mouth and a fervent fan following via an electric live presence and a striking collection of songs. Sun Seeker will celebrate BIDDEFORD with intense national touring, not dissimilar to the approach they took in building a hometown following. The band plan to use the time between runs to record their now eagerly anticipated debut album, still determined to keep venturing forward, developing and expanding the distinctive parameters of their own intrepid sound and vision.
