Join us for an evening of music featuring local songwriters representing BIPOC communities, curated by Bobby Odle.

Bobby Odle, a Seattle based singer-songwriter performing under the moniker Townsend’s Solitaire, is a classically trained percussionist turned folk musician. Whilst living in Ashland, Oregon, faced with completing a master’s degree in percussion performance, as well as a worldwide pandemic, Townsend’s Solitaire turned his creative eye towards poetry and songwriting. Drawing heavy influence from artists like The Tallest Man on Earth, Adrianne Lenker, Bright Eyes, and Sufjan Stevens Townsend’s Solitaire prioritizes and treasures genuinity above all else. His music is primarily fingerstyle acoustic guitar paired with a single vocal line singing lyrics addressing common anxieties, loss, and a love for life in this world – all the while drenched in a somber melancholy and nostalgia.
Once Around the Sun is a musical duo of siblings from India, who followed their individual musical journey but realized that their sound had more depth together. Their music is bi-lingual and is a subtle reflection of their culture and journey of life.
My name is Erick Irons. I’m a 23 year old singer/songwriter from Seattle, WA. Writing for me is very much the same as journaling. I enjoy writing about what I’m going through or who is in my life at any given moment. I love that I can play old songs and remember what I was feeling at that moment and who was around that might not be anymore. 
“JUL!ET is an indie pop singer-songwriter currently residing in Seattle, WA. Her folksy vocals and emotional lyrics give her music a laidback vibe and reflective feel. She finds inspiration through the unlikely synthesis of Folk, Electronic, and Hip-Hop influences. Her honest storytelling attempts to process the ever-changing self and the duality of experiences through the lens of romantic encounters.

Her debut project, Hopeless Romantic, was produced by Enrique Rojas. It was recorded and mixed over a brief winter retreat to her hometown in Northern California.”
