Windowpane, one of the most popular independently distributed hard rock bands in the Pacific Northwest, has recently been winning over crowds all across the U.S. & Canada as an unknown support act on major international tours. The band released their new self-titled album in early 2016 and currently has two singles from that release in regular rotation, and charting, on KISW 99.9fm (Entercom’s flagship rock station of the Northwest U.S.) and was recently added to 13+ more FM stations across the country. The band plans to reach many new cities on the road in 2017.

Foregoing fancy stage props and theatrics, Windowpane's heavy, bouncy approach to American, dirty guitar driven Rock & Roll is proving to be extremely sought after. Their sound is raw, gritty, aggressive and dark, tailored with an angry blues-essence that bounces with deep & powerful grooves. Their lyrics are honest, open, and relate to the current vulnerabilities and frustrations that plague so many. Their backdrop consists of vintage stacks and is fronted by low slung, classic guitars, while their high-energy, emotionally-fueled live performances have become something of legend in Seattle's highly creative and critical rock scene. All of this, combined with their infectious melodies and the band's reputation of 'nothing but integrity', has helped Windowpane generate a tremendous Northwest fan base that has consistently packed in crowds of over a thousand to their local performances for the past 4 years straight.

"Windowpane's music really connects with people! It doesn't matter if someone is into country or heavy metal, if they see Windowpane live, they are leaving that venue a Windowpane fan!”
-Jolene Shearer, former program director at KISW 99.9 Seattle

The consistent, overwhelming crowd response and extremely large on-site-sales numbers that Windowpane generated out on the road as an unknown support act to bands, such as Five Finger Death Punch and Queensryche, is enough proof that they can create the same effect all over the rock n’ roll loving world. As stated by Five Finger’s tour manager - “Windowpane sold more CDs and soft goods than any other unknown opener that we have ever had”. Windowpane has moved more than 11,000 CDs completely independently to date, the majority of which were sold within only 31 shows on the road to unsuspecting rock fans.

Windowpane fans contributed over $23,000 in 28 days to a crowd-funding campaign to help finance the production of the new album. The 14-track, self-titled creation was recorded at London Bridge Studios by producer Brett Eliason. The band’s award winning full length documentary film titled, "There Is No Such Thing as the Record Label Fairy" debuted at film festivals across the U.S. in 2016. Windowpane is currently making plans to hit the road to promote the new album in 2017.

"People are really responding to what we are putting out there in a big way, in every single city we have hit! We can't wait to get back out on the road with THIS material!”
-Singer/guitarist Glenn Cannon

Paul Goldman/Guitars & Vocals

At the age of 4 I heard Led Zeppelin & Jimi Hendrix for the first time, and knew right then I wanted to play guitar in a Rock Band! I started on bass, but by the time I was 12 had moved to guitar. My interest in singing started at the Young age of 4 as well. But, i didn't start singing lead vocals until much later. Chris and I were in a couple bands together when we were younger BlackWater & Blue Sky High in the Seattle hay day, and he sang. After Black Water I went on to be a part of many Bands. Evergreen, Supernals, Death Valley Murder Squad, and Sumo. and now Voodoo Death Gun! and I'm loving it!

Mike Romano/Guitars

I was around 7, I found my dads record stash and asked him if I could listen to them. He said yes only if I took care of them, and I did! From that point on I was hooked to music. Around 12 or so I told my mom I wanted to play guitar. So she got me a guitar and some lessons, and I was off and running! I played guitar for 2 yrs straight. I loved playing along with Johnny Cash at first, then moved onto Led Zeppelin, Randy Rhoads, Iron Maiden and many more were big influences on me. Through the years my childhood dream has come true. Got to play in some great Seattle bands like: PH70, Chemistry, No Love, Hippie Speedball, Surgiccal Chaos, Fluff Needs Money. Now I'm in Voodoo Death Gun with 3 other guys I met out in the Seattle music scene! I feel very fortunate to be in this band with these guys, doing what we all love to do.

David Jackson/Bass Guitars

My family moved from Texas to Washington State in the late 60's, finally settling on the Eastside in the mid 70's. I started playing bass in the early 80's, and played in Seattle area bands all through the 80's, 90's, and 00's. I met Paul in the late 80's during the club scene. We reconnected after a chance meeting in 2014 and started working on some music he had been writing. We founded a band called SUMO, played a few gigs, and got great responses from everyone. After a few drummer and guitar player changes, we found the perfect fit with Chris and Mikee and that's how Voodoo Death Gun was born!! As a bassist, it's rare to find a drummer who knows what I'm going to do before I do it, But that's Chris! Paul and Mikee really complement each other's styles and abilities. That helps to give us our unique groove and sound. I'm influenced by Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Dio, Slipknot, and just about every other band out there. I use Spector and ESP Basses with GK Amplifiers. It's been a crazy ride so far and I hope it doesn't stop anytime soon! It's really cool to see everyone come out and headbang with us. We're stoked you enjoy it as much as we do. We appreciate all of you so much! Thanks!

Chris Sandoval/Drums

It was 1973/ 74 or something, I started playing Xylophone, and other percussion instruments like pots, pans, and buckets. At some point in my young life I was turned on to Zeppelin, Blue Oyster Cult, Black Sabbath and the lot. I spent my teenage years learning about music and the biz by teching for bands. I learned how to play guitar, bass, and sing. When the time was right I met Paul, Soon we had our first band going, Blue Sky High! Later due to a couple member changes we renamed the band Black Water with me on vocals. we stayed together with good local success. but shit happens!!! I went on to sing for bands like No Love, Surgical Chaos, and ServeChrist. Did a couple solo projects. AND THEN! I bought a drumset! Life for me changed. I was reunited with Paul in 2014 but the rolls had changed. Now he was singing and I was on Drums, and Dave "The Thunder" Jackson on bass. Who knew it would be a Magic Combo! Playing with Paul, David, and Mike in Voodoo Death Gun is a blessing, and the pinnacle of years of hard work and dedication to music and fans. Drum On People
