Treading North
Treading North
Treading North is a new local seven piece band that funnels a diverse array of influences into a kind of jazzy funk style. It might be tempting to use the “jam band” label except these guys are clearly aiming higher than that. Their sound is eclectic, oftentimes dreamy, melancholy, and occasionally weird – and they are pretty talented at pulling it all together into a cohesive sound. - Jon, Reviler

"It’s increasingly difficult to stand out in the ever-expanding alternative scene, but I think that with time Treading North could become a force to be reckoned with in Minneapolis’ killer music scene.” - Suburban Hipster

"As funky as they may be, they are also versatile. Treading North is willing to lay the funk aside, play some heavy grooves and bluesy riffs, with vocals accompanied by beats that make your feet move." Aaron Bolton - Local Current Blog
Harakiri
Harakiri
Harakiri is a progressive, indie, rock band hailing from Saint Paul, Minnestoa. Harakiri's charismatic stage performances and eclectic style changes create a parallel to The Mars Volta. That being paired with soaring three part vocal harmonies and riff based guitar work embody the spirit of Freddy Mercury and Queen. All the while being compared to Incubus for their melancholy 90's vibe and unconventional song structure. Harakiri splits the seams of genre based music wide open leaving nothing off limits but reinterpreting the past in a way true to the individuals in the band. They are determined to pave their way in this 21st century "Wild West" music scene by doing nothing short of everything to make sure their music is heard.
See More Perspective
See More Perspective
In 1997 I began recording in a make shift studio; an old computer equipped with the first version Sonic Foundry Acid, a war hardened sixteen track mixer, various live percussion instruments, an inherited thrift store turntable, a handful of old records and a Roland 202 Dr Groove Drum Machine. With this assembly of tools in my laboratory of sound, I solidified my research
of the sonic palate, and of my place in Hip Hop’s cultural landscape. Right off the bat, it was important to me to create a sound that had a place in my Chicano narrative while creating something brand new at the same time. I looked to my Heritage in Mexico (both modern and ancient) and meditated on my father’s journey from Guanajuato to Minnesota. I struggled to understand my place in a lineage of royalty and immigrants and
my role in it’s future. This is the music of my journey...along with a little shit talk to keep suckers in their place for good measure.
Seaberg
Seaberg
Seaberg is a hip-hop, alt-jazz, and neo-soul band featuring multi-instrumentalist Taylor Seaberg, bassist Justin Halverson, and drummer Jay Weiler. Under their former name of "People Will Dance," Seaberg's in-studio performance of their song "Vibes" was featured in City Pages' Local Frames and the Local Current blog's Friday Five music video roundups. Seaberg has also performed at an MPR sponsored album release show for Chastity Brown's "Silhouette of Sirens" at The Fitzgerald Theater.

In late 2016, Seaberg released their first demoed recordings. The name of the EP--'The People Will Dance Tapes'--nods towards the origins of the band while looking toward the future. Songs like 'Fool's Gold' pay homage to the stylings of jazz guitarist George Benson melding social commentary about hook up culture along with breakup blues. Taylor showcases her auto-biographical lyrical abilities on tracks like 'I Don't Know' and 'Run.'

When not performing with the full band, Taylor can be found performing her solo original music under the same name.
