Breaks & Swells- facebook.com/breaksandswells
With influences ranging widely across the spectrum of Soul, Rock, Funk, Jazz, and Pop, Breaks and Swells are hard to pin down. What isn't hard to understand is the power and energy they bring to live performances; convincing even usually hard-to-sway Seattle crowds to get down and dance. The voice of front-woman Marquetta Miller has shades of Diana Ross with an unexpected edge. Derrick Jones on drums and recent addition Brice Ervin on bass, pull from unexpected sources for their rhythms. In addition to sharing song-writing duties with Miller, guitarist Dylon Tubb and pianist Quinton Harris have a major hand in the band's arrangements and over-all sound. A rotating cast of horn players features Jeremy Shaskus and Mike Lundquist. Breaks and Swells are no stranger to Seattle festivals, having played sets during the Macefield Festival, Capitol Hill Block Party, and Noise for the Needy. The band self-released an EP in 2014, and had the pleasure of releasing a single in 2016 on Lost Hymn, «Key to Love», produced by Jerry Streeter. The recently released their Erik Blood-produced LP «We Will Not Despair» at the end of 2017.

The Backslide Gospel-
Micah Subar is a Seattle, Washington based guitar player, singer, songwriter, bassist, producer, and collaborator on an eclectic group of musical projects. Witha background in jazz guitar and a penchant for songwriting Micah has a lot to offer to any musical group. He spent his childhood years in Washington, D.C. unintentionally developing his skills and creativity as he was drawn to both the passion of rock n roll and the art of jazz. While he was always writing and playing, he grew restless in his home city of Washington, DC and travelled West to find new adventure and musical partnership. In Seattle Micah first dove into the Singer-Songwriter scene, playing solo gigs and recording his own music. He soon begun collaborating with other local musicians and started a group to serve as a vehicle for his songwriting, The Backslide Gospel. This is his primary focus, though he stays involved playing bass and singing with The Drifter Luke, and collaborating with other musically interesting groups and projects.
