The Moondoggies with The Maldives, The WIld North
Woodsy Seattle folk-rock outfit, The Moondoggies are hitting the road in support of their third album on Hardly Art, Adiós I'm a Ghost, due for release on August 13th, 2013.
I’m a Ghost is a quintessentially Northwest record. Musically and lyrically, it balances light and dark, marrying the boisterous blues of The Moondoggies' debut album Don’t Be a Stranger, the symphonic sadness of Tidelands, and a temperamental timbre previously unheard from the band.
The Maldives are a staple of the Pacific Northwest Roots Rock scene, known for dynamic live shows, wistful and intelligent lyrics, and driving alt-country energy.
The Wild North
The Wild North is the band you and your dad dig. Made up of five fellow flannel wearing denim beardos. Elliot C. Way, the band's songster has been promoting Country, Folk & Rock music in the city for years, performing mostly solo waiting for the right moment for the North to rise again. Rounding up some of Vancouver's most talented players, Erik P.H. Nielsen on bass (Rich Hope, Dagger Mouth, Ben Rogers, Rolla Olak,, Belle Game), John Sponarski on guitars (Portage & Main), & Nathan Schubert on Keys (White Ash Falls, Rich Hope). Coming together through their love of Canadiana, Folk-Rock, Neil Young, The Band, and classic American hit makers, Springsteen, Petty, Dylan & C.C.R, these boys know what a song is all about and how to make people move. The North is currently in Ogre Studios working on their debut record due out in the fall.
