Nick Drummond has been a performing songwriter for over 10 years, selling out multi-night runs at historic venues such as Seattle's Triple Door and Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley with his legendary Pacific Northwest band The Senate (hailed by A Prairie Home Companion’s Garrison Keillor for their “Brilliant Dionysian music.”) Drummond is also known for his work with his former band Impossible Bird, and Seattle Weekly has praised his songwriting as “An absolutely stellar combination of upbeat alt-folk that’s mesmerizing and radiates talent.”
His most recent album "Follow the Rivulets" released in April 2016 has been widely praised by critics and music fans alike, with Notes on Liner Notes labeling it as "one of the top albums of 2016." Featuring a hand-picked lineup of some of Seattle's finest musicians, "Rivulets" pulses with an infections groove while Nick's careful and often subtle lyricism dances gracefully on top. This is the type of music that keeps a listener coming back for more.
Communicate to others with use of my songs, that we all have a capacity to face and feel our most difficult experiences with courage and resilience and still retain a sense of purpose, hope, a willingness to embrace rather than shrink away from life.
Britt and Rich
A Seattle-based Jazz/Blues duet playing original music written by members Brittany Allyson and Richard Laqueur. Since meeting in Fall 2017, they have been collaborating on each other's tunes with the focus to explore and expand their individual sounds, dynamics and artistry.
Britt and Rich perform a mixture of individually and collaboratively written tunes with an improvisational approach, so each performance is a new musical conversation! They are actively seeking other local musicians to form a larger ensemble and for the theatrical-realization of HERe*.
