Please join us for an evening with Mickelson & Coyle w/ Wild Rabbit, live at Empty Sea!
In 2013, San Francisco artist Scott Mickelson celebrated the release of more than five full-length records with his band Fat Opie. His narrative writing style continues to paint both musical and lyrical portraits of contemporary life as an American. Successes include the song Bullets in My Briefcase, which won a national band search sponsored by 7UP/(MTV). This included a prize of $15,000. He has also appeared on NPR and a CBS Morning Show. When not touring he is producing other artists from his recording studio in Northern, CA. His debut solo full-length Flickering will be released early 2015.
Dan Coyle has been touring and making music since 2008. His latest output, a 6-song EP entitled Perfect Word. Perfect Beat. is an especially dynamic record, at once both delicate and exuberant. Dan has performed in major festivals such as The Folk Alliance and has appeared on NBC Live, The ABC Morning Show, and Balcony TV (Germany). Dan has played countless shows across the United States and Canada, including a year-long stretch of performances throughout Europe in 2011. He averages 100 live performances per year, leaving a trail of delighted fans in his wake. He lives in New York City.
Combining each member’s unique influences ranging from Beethoven to Beirut, blending three distinct vocal styles, and adding copious amounts of foot-stomping, Wild Rabbit (formerly Br’er Rabbit) has discovered a sound and a presence that’s at once original and familiar, appealing to audiences of all generations & genres. After a breakthrough performance at the 2013 Northwest Folklife Festival, garnering press in noted indie roots publication No Depression and in the Seattle Times, the band made a prominent name for itself in the Northwest and has been quickly picking up momentum since then, opening for popular indie bands like Paper Bird, Ha Ha Tonka, Shook Twins, and The Family Crest.

Please join us for an evening with Andrew Norsworthy, Jared Woods, and Patrick Porter live at Empty Sea!
Andrew Norsworthy (www.andrewnorsworthy.com)
Born and raised in Anchorage, AK, and now rooted in Seattle, Andrew Norsworthy has written, recorded, and performed music for more than 20 years. Traveling across the US extensively, and playing in Europe as well, he has had the opportunity to share stages with terrific artists, such as Kelly Joe Phelps, Josh Rouse, Dan Bern, Michelle Malone, Patrick Sweany, Tim Easton, Sarah Lee Guthrie, among others. His most recent release is 2012’s blues-soaked The Key & The Cross, described by the Seattle Weekly as a showcase for “badass guitar playing” and an “equally strong voice”.
Jared Woods (www.reverbnation.com/jaredwoods)
Whether you’ve enjoyed live music in Anchorage your whole life, or you’re a visiting artist looking to hear some tunes before a short stint under the midnight sun, you can’t help but stop to appreciate Jared Woods for a moment. He is the type of talent that Alaskans would proudly show off to friends in the rest of the US, but would first consider hoarding for themselves. Anchorage fans often name him and his band (Woodrow) the town’s best in listeners’ choice competitions.
This show is a chance for an Alaskan musician, long established in Seattle (Andrew Norsworthy), to introduce his audience to an old friend and musical collaborator, Jared Woods. Andrew and Jared toured the country several times over as a duo years ago, recording tracks for Norsworthy’s solo LP Horizon City along the way. This performance will be Jared Woods’ solo debut in Seattle. Also on hand will be longtime Norsworthy associate Patrick Porter (of local band Explone) helping out on guitar. For fans of any of these musicians, expect some special performances and a room full of warm vibes.
