Ollella’s career as a musician started early, when she sang before she could talk. Trained as a classical cellist since the age of nine, the Seattle indie-folk musician blends her technical background with authoritative vocals, live-looping, and improvisation. Pulling on influences like Florence + the Machine, Cat Power, and Zoë Keating, she blends the acoustic with the contemporary, folk with pop, and tenacity with softness. Her playing has been featured in films screened at Film Festivals such as Sundance and Aspen Film Fest; on recordings with others, including Grammy-winning artist Peter Kater; and has shared stages with popular Americana acts such as the Shook Twins and Rising Appalachia.
Triumphant and celebratory, haunting and surreal, frantic, anxious, angry, odd, mournful, silly, and strange. Kyle John Kenowski's music is many things, yet it's all tethered together with tightly structured classical(ish) guitar runs and swirling vocal melodies. Put in his own words, "it's kind of like Classical Psychedelic Folk Pop". And if that's not enough, he also makes hand drawn animations, like Atone Alone at Home, or Trustwormy, which was published by Adult Swim in 2020!
Seattle based Singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist Cullen Cochran doesn't take themselves too seriously, and neither should you! Deeply inspired by the comedic nature of free jazz and psychedelia; generating cartoony song-paintings of post-modern delight.
