St. Paul de Vence
From incidental and unplanned beginnings, St. Paul de Vence has emerged out of one genuine step after another into the band they are today. Indeed, they bring forth a sound that grows so directly out of who they are - a band of brothers, each artists in their own right - weaving together their multi-instrumental and vocal-harmony talents with a natural ease and joy reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
Formed in June of 2011, a wave of good omens and overwhelming responses continues to follow the band's steady and sincere work. Only four months after their formation they gathered in a studio to record their debut self-titled album, with a live approach and minimal overdubs. The album proved a success with seven straight weeks in the Top 10 of KEXP's Americana and Pacific Northwest Charts following its release. One good thing lead to another, and their song “Pink Wine” was featured as KEXP Song of the Day.

Seattle’s Campfire OK blend atmospheric indie pop, and lyrical vocals to create a sound that is distinctly their own, while still firmly rooted in their hometown’s tradition of musical experimentation and collaboration. Banjo, horns, acoustic guitar, dark psychedelia, and bursts of joyful sonic color weave in and out of their songs. The result is a sound that often builds like an impending thunderstorm, but is just as likely to evaporate into a blissful blue day.
Campfire OK began as the creation of songwriter Mychal Cohen (vocals/piano/guitar), who, in 2010, began recording what would become CFOK’s debut album, Strange Like We Are. Multi-instrumentalist Andrew Eckes (banjo/guitar/trumpet) joined in the recording process, and the album was released in February 2011. With live performances on the horizon, drummer Brandon Milner was called upon to help bring the songs from studio to stage. In 2012, former Harvey Danger bassist Aaron Huffman came into the mix, adding a layer of urgency to CFOK’s evolving sound along with Zarni De Wet on vocals and piano.
The band is currently gearing up for the release of their second album, When You Have Arrived, and will be promoting it on stages throughout the U.S. and Canada in the coming months.
Maia Santell and House Blend consists of vocals, guitar, saxophone, bass and drums, and performs jazz, blues, Latin, swing, Motown, big band, nostalgia, classic rock and contemporary favorites. Known around the region as a "premier dance band," they perform a mix of styles, rhythms and tempos for ballroom and swing dancers, with a repertoire similar to that of the T.V. show, "Dancing with the Stars."
Maia's "House Blend" combo is a duo, trio, or full quartet, quintet or sextet, depending on the venue or the nature of the engagement. Whatever the size or composition of her accompaniment, Maia's vocal style is consistently swingin' and soulful.
