The Guessing Game
The Guessing Game
Formed in the summer of 2013, THE GUESSING GAME is the brain child of Jeff Rouse, long time bassist of Duff McKagan’s LOADED. “In the summer of 2013, I found myself with some much needed time on my hands. I knew it was time to find the right people to finally bring these songs I had been writing to life. Having spent the last 14 or so years writing, recording and touring in Loaded, it was time for me to get the ‘other’ songs I had been working on out of my head, onto tape, and see what happens.” Seeking out long time Seattle rock luminaries Kathy Moore (Brad, Satchel) Gary Westlake (Peter Frampton, Flight To Mars, Pete Carroll) Keith Ash (Star Anna, Marshall Altman) and Shawn Zellar (Redneck Girlfriend, Fires), Rouse knew this was something special – “They all breathed life and beauty into the songs and it was magnificent.” Their debut album, Holy Crow drips of heartache, regret and finally redemption. Like that first drink Friday evening to that last sermon Sunday morning. “Here’s to a little heartache, a little regret, and shitload of hope.”

With the aggressive sound of their new album, DESTROY IT ALL, THE GUESSING GAME is ready to take their place in the vanguard of the international rock scene. Fueled by the ferocious vocals of Jeff Rouse, and driven by the onslaught of heavy guitar riffs, the band has been winning legions of fans with its uncompromising stage show. “Sometimes art imitates life. The Guessing Game has been the saving grace in mine,” explains Jeff Rouse, vocals/guitar. “Shawn, Kathy, Gary and Keith lifted me up and once again followed me down a path that I needed and wanted to explore. DESTROY IT ALL is a testament to what we have become as a band and what 5 people can do emotionally, artistically, and cinematically in once again a very short time.” – Jeff Rouse
Baby and the Nobodies
Baby and the Nobodies
Baby and the Nobodies might hail from the Pacific Northwest, but they sound like they could have come from the So-Cal punk scene in the late 80's early 90's. Rebecca Terry's vocals are reminiscent of the Punk Rock styling of Blondie and the Runaways, but you can tell her influences go far beyond just that. With poppy, in your face melodies she takes the guitar driven music of Baby and the Nobodies to new levels that force you to pay attention.

Penning the music falls on guitar player, Rev, who has written and performed all over the world, he takes his influences from the early Punk and Glam scene citing Johnny Thunders and Mike Ness as his favorites. He states: "If I hear something I like, I can't stop listening, be it punk, rock, country or dance music I don't care, if it's good I listen to it". Teaming up with Rebecca has been an inspiration and an outlet to get some of the songs in his head out to the crowds. “People want to hear this”, he says. His guitar sound adds the color and flavor, from the tasteful chunky riffs to the sweet guitar melodies that paint the canvas of each and every song. Mark, in the band, is called "The Human Metronome" his drumming not only keeps Baby and the Nobodies in time, but holds the crowd in captivity. Kenny, on bass, holds down the bottom end, and adds a specific flair that can only be described as awesome. Together these four individuals form one united front: Baby and the Nobodies. They aren't just a group of people that make music, they are a band that works hard and takes you on a journey each time you see them perform.

Baby and the Nobodies have a 10 song CD titled "Satellite Highway", Mixed by Phil Soussan, former bass player for Ozzy Osbourne. The disc is filled with with heartachingly soulful songs, catching the rock n roll edge they know and love, that will keep you tapping your steering wheel like you were driving down the PCH on a sunny afternoon. Bluesy Guitar-Driven Power Pop-Punk Rockers with class and feeling for days. Don't let the name fool you, these guys are definitely not Nobodies.

Keep your eyes open for Baby and the Nobodies, they will be touring the west coast, playing car shows in the Pacific Northwest and blowing up your favorite speakers.
