The Black Tones

The Black Tones are a rock brother-sister duo who took Seattle by storm a few years ago. While they've been making music together for eight years, they just recently released their first full-length album. 
Eva and Cedric Walker have a knack for taking controversial subject matter and tackling it with audacious gusto, channeling it into incredible beats and their signature edgy sound. 
Critics say Eva's sultry tone reminds them of icons like Billie Holiday. Their album, Cobain & Cornbread, has generated a lot of attention. 

Perfume Genius 

Perfume Genius has gained more notoriety over the years, but Mike Hadreas has retained his humbleness as he plays his music from the heart without focusing on one specific genre. He has cited musicians like Nina Simone as a significant influence on his work in the past. 

Since 2010, he has achieved a degree of fame, even getting the chance to perform his music on notable late-night shows like The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. With four studio albums under his belt, Hadreas is undoubtedly a musician to watch.

Temple Canyon

Temple Canyon is an up-and-coming band straight out of the heart of Seattle, anchored by the soothing voice of Mariko Ruhle, whose incredible vocals add a degree of folk to their music. 
They've labeled their music as "psychedelic folk-rock," making it a genre-crossing mix of something soothing that you can still groove to. Their songs are heavily inspired by life on the West Coast. 


If you love dance-pop music then you must check out Mirrorgloss, who have consecutively ranked on numerous top talent lists over the past few years. Najah Monique Todd and Del Brown came together to form a duo that knows how to create infectious music imbibed with an R&B and soulful flair. 
They sell out shows in the area and it's not hard to see why. First established in 2012, the group has come a long way and made quite the name for themselves in the Seattle music scene. 

Gifted Gab

Gabrielle Kadushin was born in the Central District of Seattle and has been an avid lover of music from a young age. When she turned 21, she released her first EP using the name Gifted Gab and a star was born. 
She considers Queen Latifah to be her idol, even naming her debut after her. Like Queen Latifah, Kadushin excels at crafting stunning and penetrating lyrics. She knows how to control the beats and is undoubtedly a talented wordsmith.
