Ken Stringfellow

Ken Stringfellow is most widely known as Jon Auer's partner in the Seattle-based "power pop" group, The Posies, but is also a well-respected artist and producer in his own right. Ken's solo career began with the 1997 release, This Sounds Like Goodbye and the low-fi, experimental feel of this album was a departure from the richness of The Posies sound. His second solo release, Touched, had the misfortune of a September 11, 2001 street date and as a result, did not receive the attention it deserved.

Miss Lucid

Daniel Mackintosh.Paul Jamieson.Kevin Smith.Ciaran McGowan This potent cacophony has never been so necessary. At the close of 2011 a four-piece was forged. A collection. All four souls stem from north easterly regions and together they built a band. Ciaran McGowan, Kevin Smith, Daniel Mackintosh & Paul Jamieson return to you now, as Miss Lucid. In the climate of consternation in which we spin, ambivalence is the new currency.
