The Requisite
Waking Things
Northwest Music Scene:

"Whether you want to label them indie rock, pop-rock, indie-prog, hard rock, or all of the above, Waking Things have spent the past handful of years proving they’re one of the most varied and forward-thinking rock bands in our scene today. Spearheaded by lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Chris Sicard, whose theatrical vocal presence is a dominating force throughout their music, Waking Things is the rare sort of band that isn’t afraid to incorporate elements off the beaten path for traditional rock, while still coming through with an uncompromising sound exciting and just familiar enough. Their penchant for passionate vocal performances, perky instrumentation, and iridescent melodies have kept them one of Seattle’s must-know artists of the modern era.

Purposeful bucking of the rules and constant change of sound can sometimes lead to inconsistent discographies for other bands, but Waking Things know how to not only play to their strengths, but add to them as well. 2014’s Idee Fixe, the band’s full-length
debut album, was a concept album taking place in an early 1900’s psychiatric hospital, and its dark concept was reflected musically in its noisy guitars, sometimes distant melodies, and emotionally potent tone of many of its tracks. After this highly conceptual record, however, the band’s more recent output has tended to focus more acutely on their ability to dish out electrifying rock songs with a left-field flair.

Those of you on the lookout for a new rock band with a daring musical world to explore, Waking Things are for you."
Joyfield is a Seattle-based indie alternative band boasting powerful female vocals and intriguing instrumentals. Though drawing comparisons to Joy Formidable and Metric, the four-piece consistently reinvents the wheel and strives to create a sound and style truly unique to their own brand.

Formed in 2010, Joyfield is comprised of college friends Ellie Hanes (vocals/keys), Michael Szember (guitar), and Karris Nicklaus (drums). Sean Lane joined on bass in 2013, and over the last year the unsigned group has made leaps and bounds towards achieving success.

2014 has proven to be an amazing year for Joyfield, with a Grand Prize title from the Hard Rock Rising Battle of the Bands giving them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play for 40,000 fans in Rome, Italy this past July.

The band is currently recording their new album "Hands" and plans to release the EP this fall.
