Xolie Morra & The Strange Kind
Xolie Morra & The Strange Kind
The Seattle band Xolie Morra & The Strange Kind is making a musical presence worldwide. With their recent appearance on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, their success has been steadily growing strong. Their music is eclectic and moves people on multiple levels no matter what genre they prefer, though they would best be classified as a very classically approached Pop/Rock band with an Alternative Country root.

As an artist who is on the Autism Spectrum, Xolie is an open book and lends herself as an active and available representative of the Autism community. As well as being an out and loud member of the LGBTQ/Intersex community to raise awareness about diversity, equality and acceptance of all people.

The band has released multiple singles, mixing Xolie's edgy vocals and moving melodic compositions with Intense Epic Rock production in it's purest form. Most recently, however, the band has been working on a series of albums called "The Great Social Experiment", which incorporates a multi faceted approach to the politics of social media and incorporates close and new friendships to promote indie artists from all over the world.

From small intimate shows to larger stages opening for national acts, this band has put in the time and it shows in their performance. And through grass roots marketing, hard work, dedication, ambition and pure passion for what they do, they have pushed their way past boundaries to inspire other artists with disabilities to do what they love.
Leanne Wilkins & The Weathered
Leanne Wilkins & The Weathered
Since she began performing 1998, Leanne has captured diverse audiences with her heart-felt lyrics and soulful melodies. Her songs convey a prominent element of honesty, multiplying the depth of emotion behind her lyrics that pulls the heartstrings of listeners. Often drawing upon her own experiences, her songwriting expresses her visions on relationships, identity, and the search for truth.

Leanne discovered her passion for music at the age of four, and she devoted her childhood to studying piano. When she began playing guitar at age 16, however, she found that her heart was synchronous with the rhythm of acoustic rock music. Over time, her style has been infused with elements of Americana, roots rock and blues. Influences including Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, and Kathleen Edwards also create subtle undertones in her music.
Her first studio album Waterwheel, recorded at the Track Shack in Seattle, Washington, was released in May 2008. The album includes 12 songs she wrote over the span of a decade, revisiting wistful pop songs written in her late teens (Surrender, Into Oblivion), and concluding with her later songwriting explorations in Americana and roots rock (Earth Meets Sky, Why Didn’t I). The album is available for purchase online through CD Baby, and tracks may be downloaded through iTunes, Amazon, and a variety of other distributors.

The Weathered formed in August 2013 with Michael Rognlie [bass] and Derek Pulvino [lead guitar], and Travis Yost [drums] joined in March 2015. The melding of influences and styles has produced a complex flavor of soulful rock that is sure to leave music fans craving more. The band performs regularly in venues throughout the greater Seattle area.

Patrick Galactic
Future Folk crooner Patrick Galactic has earned a reputation as a sophisticated lyricist and magnetic live performer since his psych pop solo turn in 2014.
