So, You're In Seattle: Houndmouth

When we head to the Olympics of music (a thing I just made up), I want Houndmouth to be one of the bands representing America. They're a rad combo of rock n roll, gospel and soul, and just the right amount of holding down that organ chord and letting it sing. Bassist Zak Appleby and drummer Shane...

This is unprecedented material: I've never done a 1 v 2 "So, You're In Seattle" podcast. Listen below! What a good group of dudes to sit down with for a chat (and a beer). When they arrived at 11:30a, I said "is it too early for a beer?" as they handed me a cold can. "Dude, we've already been...

So, You're In Seattle: Kellen Prouse

Kellen is a dude that has Multiple Sclerosis. I honestly had no idea what that really meant short of a. lots of people here get it and b. it has to do with motor skills. I ended up finding out it's way more terrible than I thought, but that you can still have an awesome life if you choose it...

So, You're In Seattle: Billy Thompson!

Billy Bill BTHOMP Thompson harnesses more natural singing ability and creativity than I could aspire to earn in a lifetime of focused study. When I first started working at The End, I found him asleep one day in a nook in my office when he definitely should have been working his life as a radio...

So, You're In Seattle: Ryan Granger of The Grizzled Mighty

I didn't know the dude at all before watching his band The Grizzled Mighty perform a couple years ago during CHBP. Ryan Granger's business card reads "Carpenter of Magic" which is damn brilliant. Here's a dude that knows how to shred on a Les Paul, howl like the best stoner rock behemoth, and can...
