Samantha’s soothing voice combined with a nice mix of chill music is instructional, friendly and assuring. When you do finally go head down, you feel totally at ease and trusting that you’ll be ok.
So if you have learned anything from us yet, then you know we like our food and drinks home grown from the northwest. Lucky for us its a bit of a trend around here to brew up your own Made in the NW creations. So when we caught wind that there was an event that was showcasing only northwest distilleries, we jumped on that list.
With all of the proceeds going to Grow Washington, Snohomish on the Rocks helps and celebrates the distilling businesses of the northwest.
Last summer I experienced Hop Harvest in Yakima. Did you know Yakima is the 2nd largest hop producer in the world? We hung out with the kind, passionate brewers at Bale Breaker, located right in the middle of the family hop farm to chat about hops, the family legacy and the quality beer they produce from these aromatic gems.
So riding the NW Made train we started up, NWL would like to present elpis&wood. A handcrafted furniture shop based out of Everett, WA; elpis&wood specializes in live edge reclaimed wood. When I heard about their shop, I thought ok I can go check these guys out. But after seeing what these two guys, Matt and Blake, produce, I needed to go see how they do it. If you are anything like us and you like the idea of home grown and produced in the Northwest, these guys are it. NW Made.
So if you haven’t heard yet, I Will Keep Your Ghost is an Everett native band that classifies themselves as space rock glam rock electronic rock.
Everett Music Initiative has done an awesome job at show casing our local Everett talent. While I was out at Kroakers the other night shooting the band I Will Keep Your Ghost, I was able to catch EMI in action and see what their take on why Everett is the perfect place to find great music.
These guys are blowing up! On tour and playing shows left and right all over the place. Get a peek and go check them out at one of their up coming shows! The Fishermen Village Music Festival included!
In my opinion these guys are the best band to come out of Everett. When I discovered who they were I had to go check them out. Lucky for me they were having a release party just down the street. Hosted at Kroakers Neighborhood Bar, and opened by Vox Mod and Kairos, here is I Will Keep Your Ghost performing, their first track from their newest EP, Lost.
Bluewater Organic Distilling – Sometimes we get made fun of (Portlandia – dream of the 1890’s) for it, but we North-Westerners are obsessed with craft…
