Ayron Jones and The Way
Ayron Jones and The Way
Seattle singer-songwriter Ayron Jones (pronounced like the letter "A"-ron), has become one of Seattle's hottest up-and-comers with his own brand of music dubbed, "Urban Rock." A hard-core version of the blues with the essence of Hip-Hop and the raw energy of Punk, drizzled with that famous Seattle sound. Think, Stevie Ray Vaughan meets Nirvana.
Whitney Mongé
Whitney Mongé
There are moments in a performance where an artist gets lost. Where they just let go, allowing themselves to be vulnerable and to feel across the depth and breadth of their being. It is in that state where Whitney Mongé lives and creates.

Whitney learned to capture the power of authenticity while honing her skills as a street performer. With or without elevation of a stage, each part of her performance, from the passion of her powerful, smokey voice to the intensity of a whispered lyric, draws listeners into an embrace within each truthful moment of song. Whitney was raised with rhythm and blues in her blood, but while growing up in the Pacific Northwest, her music was heavily influenced by the rock scene of the 90’s coining her own genre, Alternative Soul.

Having been featured in the award winning Find Your Way: a Busker’s Documentary (2014), and releasing a pair of critically acclaimed albums, Whitney has poured herself into a new project. Her latest EP, Stone, captures her evolution as a performer and songwriter in a powerful way, laying bare the wonderment and restlessness of a gifted artist’s search for their place, their voice and for a sense of belonging.
Black Tones
Black Tones
Simply put...The Black Tones are like a mixture of Kurt Cobain and cornbread. Consisting of founders/twin siblings Eva Walker on guitar/vocals, Cedric Walker on drums, and Robby Little on the bass. Born and raised by first generation Seattleites, the Walker twin’s, honed their sound from their families original New Orleans roots, crediting them for their unique musical style of Rock n Roll. A goody bag of BLUES, PUNK and BLACK POWER!

Their debut album "Mr. Mines" was featured on the Seattle Public Library Playback series as one of 50 selected albums representative of the Seattle music scene. In 2017 they played the first annual Upstream Music Festival and NW Folklife. They have also appeared on Band In Seattle and The Spud Goodman Show, as well as being featured multiple times on Afro Punk.com

The Black Tones have shared the stage with local headliners Hobosexual, Tacocat, NighTrain and Hot Panda to name a few. In 2016 and 2017 they were featured in the production of "Dear White People" at the Theatre Off Jackson in Seattle, WA, as well as having music licensed to the independent film "The Noise Made by People"

Currently The Black Tones are in the studio with hall of fame of producer Jack Endino, hard at work on new material.
