Their sound is an electrifying soul revival that has garnered praise from the likes of Train's Pat Monahan, who proclaimed, "I love this band!"
Bringing an arsenal of talent to the stage, including award-winning and charismatic frontman, Jesse Butterworth, a Grammy Award-winning rhythm section, a blazing brass section, and dueling electric guitars, they have been described by The Journal of Roots Music as “the new Seattle sound!” With live shows that mashup both catchy originals and popular cover songs, The West Coast Feed music and energy whips the crowd into a full on dance frenzy at every show.
The West Coast Feed's music, including their single, "Shake It," reached the Billboard top 100, has been featured on Sirius XM and on over 100 radio stations across the UK and Europe, including the BBC.
With live performances described as "jaw-dropping" by New Music Weekly, the band has shared stages with the likes of Lord Huron, The Revivalists, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and Moon Taxi. They’ve also headlined sold-out venues from Los Angeles to Austin, New York City to Seattle, and are perennial favorites of the Pacific Northwest live music scene.
Brother Townsend is a four piece band based on the Olympic Peninsula of western Washington. They play rock music disguised as country or blues, depending on the mood. Their melodies harken back to classic bands such as CCR, while their lyrical prowess could conjure memories of the best of Petty or Dylan. Their live shows are absolute barn burners—at any given moment some will be dancing, while others will cry, while young lovers fall hopelessly into their madness. Theirs is working class music, written by and for the heart of humanity.
Whether playing Jazz grooves, swinging the Blues or rocking out to classic Pop tunes, the Josh Rawlings Trio puts a whole lot of soul into every note.
The JRT got its humble beginnings when bassist Nate Omdal, drummer Adam Kessler and I met at Cornish College of the Arts in 2001. They have been performing together for nearly 2 decades and their intuitive and heart-felt playing is very palpable at their shows.
The band has a rich history and eclectic repertoire that shows the versatility and depth of their seasoned musicianship.

They've accompanied some of the top local vocalists in the region and have entertained countless events including performances for the Mayor of Seattle, the State Governor of Washington, Amazon, Microsoft, Bill Gates Foundation, Chateau Ste.
