The pedal steel, the fiddle, the hush of a song sung from the heart—the world of American roots music is no stranger to Seattle songwriter Sera Cahoone. After three albums on Sub Pop Records and years at the top of the indie charts, she’s returning to her earliest influences. Growing up, Cahoone's father, a Rocky Mountain dynamite salesman, took the family to mining conferences at old honky-tonks. The sounds she heard there—the twang of country crooners, cowboy boots on peanut shells—have found their way into a new album, From Where I Started (to be released March 24, 2017). It’s an album about falling in and out of love, finding new hope, and learning that the best way to move forward is to remember where you began.

Jenn Champion
Over fifteen years ago, Jenn Champion (née Ghetto), a founding member of influential Northwest indie rock band Carissa’s Wierd, began writing and recording under the alphabetically-informed alias of S. Hardly Art released her acclaimed record Cool Choices—Champion’s first with a full band, and produced by Chris Walla—in late 2014. Now, in the interest of abandoning their previously un-Googleable status, the four-piece has re-christened themselves as Jenn Champion. According to Champion (singular), “Sometimes you just want to be found.”
The digital-only No One EP is the first release under this new moniker, and heralds an exciting new direction for Champion and crew, focusing on dusky, elastic electronic instrumentation previously only flirted with on Cool Choices standout “Tell Me.” In addition to the instantly-memorable title track, the No One EP includes six remixes from a diverse array of Northwest producers, artists, and DJs: Glitterbang, Crater, USF, SassyBlack (ex-THEESatisfaction), Breakmaster Cylinder, and Champion’s new side project Malidont.
