Stereo Embers
Stereo Embers
"Stereo Embers are my favorite new band out of Seattle. Killer songs, great musicianship, and they totally slay live, just as a rock band should."
- Barret Martin (Mad Season/ Screaming Trees)

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.

“Stereo Embers are a great band. The song ‘Wrong Way’ is one I couldn’t stop listening to. Great chorus and killer songwriting. ‘Ways of the World’ is a perfect foil for it. With Robb Benson vox, Tim Dijulio lead guitar, Ben Brunn bass, and Cassady Laton on drums, Stereo Embers have been tearing up the new Seattle Scene lately, and I love the interplay between Robb’s great vocals and Tim DiJulio’s smoking guitar leads. A proud release for HockyTalkter Records!”
– Mike McCready (Pearl Jam)

Stereo Embers new EP is set to be released in November of 2017.

Stereo Embers are:
Robb Benson (lead vocals/ rhythm guitar)
Tim DiJulio (backing vocals/ lead guitar)
Ben Brunn (backing vocals/ bass guitar)
Cassady Laton (drums)
Strong Suit
Strong Suit
Strong Suit has been called a Seattle super group, which might sound strange considering you may not have heard of some of the musicians in the band. But if you’ve seen much live music in Seattle, you’ve probably seen these guys play. Strong Suit is made up of the some of the most in demand, most respected sidemen in town, each getting the chance in this project to play to their strength- their Strong Suit- free from the restrictions of someone else’s name on the marquee.
The seed was planted in 2012 when Sean and Justin finally fulfilled their longtime desire to write music together. Soon after the pair had worked out a few tunes, they got ahold of the best players they knew, guys they had been playing with in various projects for years, and the result was stunning: the whole much greater than the sum of its parts. Everyone realized this was an opportunity for a whole new kind of project, and Strong Suit was born. A week later they played their first show, one of the perks afforded a band of pros!
This is a great live band. Their shows are bursting with energy, excitement, and chops. For a taste, take a listen to their debut EP. The band recorded the tracks live at Studio Litho in one day (only one of the songs took a second take, the rest were all first takes). The following day they added a little polish- acoustic guitars, backup vocals, etc.- and that was it! Mix, master, release. When you see the band live, the music is just as tight as on the record, but full of wild improvisations and that intense symbiotic energy that the best bands find with their audiences.
These guys are some of the busiest working players in Seattle, which means the band doesn’t get to play together very often. Don't miss your next chance to see STRONG SUIT!
