    Bruce Pavitt was born 1959 in Chicago IL.

By the early 90′s SUB POP had released recordings by Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Mark Lanegan, Beat Happening, TAD, The Walkabouts, Steven Jessie Bernstein and helped initiate a global interest in Seattle area music.In 2012, Bruce released  Experiencing Nirvana: Grunge in Europe, 1989a photo journal documenting his travel experiences with Sub Pop bands in Europe. . IN 2014, a  compilation of his early Sub Pop zines and columns entitled,Sub Pop USA: The Subterranean Pop Music Anthology, 1980-1988.

March 2013, the folk/indie/Americana duo had co-written their first two songs, by April they had a paid gig under their belts, and by May they had a name and shows booked out into the months ahead. Before settling in Seattle, Washington, where the act is now based, both Darren and Beth had traversed the Western Hemisphere separately.  Darren migrated from the northern Appalachians to his birth-state of Montana, before heading on a South American adventure across the Andes mountain range, eventually falling in love with Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. The daughter of a US Foreign Service Officer, Beth also spent time in the Andes, as well as a host of US states on both coasts, before moving to Seattle. The duo has drawn comparisons to acts like The Civil Wars, Damien Rice, the Swell Season, The Banner Days, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.  The Water’s Edge is the debut release from March To May, out April 25th, 2015 thttp://www.marchtomay.com

    in Music

    YUCA is a Canadian alt rock band made up of  Matt Borck on lead vocals and guitar, Andy Boldt on  bass and backing vocals, and Dave Atkinson on drums.  YUCA’s sound has been described as “epic and unparalleled” and compared to Muse, Radiohead, Coldplay, and U2.  Their live performances routinely fill stadiums engage their audiences to experience raw emotion and power.  They have launched a new music distribution model and Borck will be on hand to tell us all about it.  


    Corinne West, a Bay Area-based fourth generation Californian, has been described as “the Siren of the Sierras” with a voice that “invokes angels, if angels had a dangerous side.” Corinne’s powerful and eloquent voice, and transformative songwriting has earned her a place at the apex of  the global acoustic roots scene. She has recently released her fifth album, Starlight Highway, already praised by critics as her best ever – which is saying a lot.  Corinne will take time from the album release tour to talk with us and play some of the new tunes.

    Bradford Loomis & Beth Whitney, Pop-Tinged Folk

    in Indie Music

    Hr1: Bradford Loomis and Beth Whitney, Pop Folk


    www.thebannerdays.com
    When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the much anticipated album The Banner Days (releasing August 23rd on MTS Records). That first night, they wrote “My Beloved” in two hours. And after a few more writing sessions, it was clear to both, that these songs merited a bold decision.

    Native Broadcast Network Presents-March to May Indie Folk Music from Seattle, WA

    in Music

    Who is March to May? 


     Darren Guyaz (guitar, vocals, keyboard) roamed the northern Appalachians through his childhood, plinking & plunking the classical keys until he ventured West to his birth-state of Montana, settling in Missoula to finish a degree in Geography. One evening on an old, historic homestead in the hills north of town, he picked up a friend’s guitar and began strumming, teaching himself how to play a few chords, finger-picking his way through the frets, and forever changing his musical expression.


    Beth Wesche (Celtic harp, vocals) Beth spent her formative years wandering through the Andes and across a smattering of U.S. states.  The daughter of a U.S. Foreign Service Officer, she stayed in each place just long enough to fall in love with it before moving on to the next adventure.  Music wove its way through her life from an early age - she sang in choirs from elementary school to college, beginning classical voice training and starting to sing a cappella as she grew older.  While living in Ashland, Oregon, she picked up the Celtic folk harp and found herself captivated by the sound.  However, a few short years after beginning to play, she moved to the East Coast, leaving her harp silent in her family’s living room for five years and largely convincing herself that music would have to take a back seat in her life.
