(7:00pm-7:30pm) Max Moore
Max Moore is a 17 year old producer and musician from Vashon Island who writes dreamy electronic and indie songs in his bedroom. He started writing music on his computer in middle school, and has since began to incorporate instrumentation into his compositions, whilst drawing influence from genres such as hip hop, indie, and pop music.
(7:45pm-8:15pm) Slingshot Around The Sun
Slingshot Around the Sun is the solo moniker for Jason Dean, an academically trained musician who has spent the last 20 years in the heart of the Seattle music scene playing almost every small to medium sized venue in the city, who now resides on Vashon Island. His music encompasses several strains of electronic music including IDM, glitch, ambient and techno and relies heavily on hardware synths and samplers to create energetic pieces in a live setting while having the freedom to improvise and feed off of the energy of a crowd. Slingshot Around the Sun has been a side concern for several years always existing in the background to various other projects that Jason has been involved with over the years. New technology and a resurgence in live electronic music has now pushed this project to the foreground and Jason is planning on releasing tracks digitally as they are completed hoping to eventually compile them into a physical release while honing a formidable live show in the strong electronic scene that is taking shape in the Northwest.
(8:30pm-9:00pm) Colin Loch
Started from the bottom of the loch. Colin Loch is a 27 year old MC that was raised on and off of Vashon Island. His family traveled a lot because his father was in the Navy. Music has always been a part of Colin's life. From opera to jazz. Pavarotti and Armstrong to Jay Z and Ms. Lauryn Hill. His musical influences are vast and far. Colin is an avid cook as well. He has been working in restaurants since he was 15 and kitchen life has been a major muse in his music. Along with back of the house, he is also a bartender. One of his fastest and more realistic songs is about the layers of working in a small town bar. Everyone's got a story to tell and the bartender is there to listen. He just finished his debut album called 'Sound Advice'. Partially produced by Island native Dominick Wolczko and Tacoma music guru Torbjorn Caspersen, Sound Advice is a glimpse into the heart and mind of this multi-talented creator.
