From Sirens website:

Johnny Lee Ledford:

"Johnny Lee Ledford is a mixed media artist, music producer, and performer. Ledford owns and operates Soniphone Records with partner Blake Lewis in Everett. Ledford has produced breakthrough records such as "This is That... and That is For You" by Shark the Herald and the "Untitled EP" by Johnny Hoffman and the Residents.

Ledford's debut single "Burn This City" charted as high as #51 in the top 100 Indie Radio Charts."


"One part Bitters, one part Saints. One part Blasphemers, three parts Coal Black Soul. Shookup, not stirred.

Tired of playing in folk bands, Shookup's goal the last two years in writing music has been to singlehandedly bring ROCK back to the PNW with HEAVY Drop C, groove driven, melodic riffs. These boys will have you leaning forward in your seats to catch wordsmith Matt Grosvold's dirty dust bowl blues-inspired lyrics about women, the devil, and damnation.... and then put you back in your seats when they turn it up to 12. Drawing heavily from influences like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and local post-punk heroes Haarkonen and These Arms Are Snakes (and many, many more) make these trained musicians delving into hard and heavy rock something to behold."

Sleepwell Citizen:

"SLEEPWELL CITIZEN (formerly branded as John Paul and the Apostles) is a three piece group that consists mainly of spit, mud, and the constant urge to destroy new things in a beautiful way. Follow this miscreant triad and watch with concerned delight as they embark on a new venture for glory and destruction. Guitarist and songwriter, Tyson Lee's vision of melodic, driving garage-rock-passion mashed with drummer, Joe Jarvis and bassist, Evan Smith's more traditionally honed talents fuse to create a unique approach and sound of their own. Garage prog, grunge, forest rock, subatomic filth pop, Dave..? Whatever you want to call it, SLEEPWELL CITIZEN will be serving it up hot and messy for your guilty pleasure."
