Formed in the summer of 2013, The Guessing Game is the brain child of Jeff Rouse, long time bassist of Duff McKagan’s LOADED. “Having spent the last 14 or so years writing, recording and touring in LOADED, it was time for me to get the ‘other’ songs I had been working on out of my head, onto tape, and see what happens.” Seeking out long time Seattle rock luminaries Kathy Moore (Brad, Satchel) Gary Westlake (Peter Frampton, Flight To Mars, Pete Carroll), Keith Ash (Star Anna, Marshall Altman) and Shawn Zellar (Redneck Girlfriend, Fires), Rouse knew this was something special – “They all breathed life and beauty into the songs and it was magnificent.”
Their debut album, Holy Crow dripped of heartache, regret and finally redemption. With the aggressive sound of their new album, Destroy It All, The Guessing Game is ready to take their place in the vanguard of the international rock scene. Fueled by the ferocious vocals of Jeff Rouse, and driven by the onslaught of heavy guitar riffs, the band has been winning legions of fans with its uncompromising stage show. "Destroy It All is a testament to what we have become as a band and what 5 people can do emotionally, artistically, and cinematically in once again a very short time.” – Jeff Rouse
Stereo Embers are an American Rock band from Seattle, Washington. They carry no pretense- no effort to be something that they are not, and display their musical influences proudly. Through their songs, homage is paid to bands like The Who, The Faces, Big Star, and Cheap Trick. Their music is energetic, melodic, anthemic- much as the music it is influenced by was and still is.
While individually, they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many notable artists (Pearl Jam, Death Cab for Cutie, and Built to Spill to name a few), it is sharing the stage together as Stereo Embers that has brought out the best in them. With this band, the whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts.
Stereo Embers has released two EPs (Stereo Embers and Code of the Sound) and in 2016 a 7” Vinyl Single (“Wrong Way"/ "Ways of the World”) on the Hockeytalkter label owned by Mike McCready of Pearl Jam.
