Jake London can recite all the words to Don McLean’s “American Pie” from memory. He has a decades long history in Seattle’s music community. His solo acoustic performances, replete with finger-style guitar, draw upon an eclectic range of sources, including blues, pop, rock, country, gospel, soul, and British folk. He is also one half of the Qual Cups with Leslie Beattie (Sgt. Major III ).
Along with John Ramberg (Tripwires, Minus 5), Jake co-hosted the monthly songwriter night at Ballard’s Sunset Tavern from 2000-2005. He has performed at the Bumbershoot Music Festival, the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas, and numerous Seattle-area venues, including the Tractor Tavern, Conor Byrne, Cafe Racer, the Royal Room, Hotel Albatross, and Slim’s Last Chance.
Andrew Norsworthy was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, and now rooted down in Seattle, Andrew Norsworthy has written, recorded, and performed music for over 20 years. Traveling across the US extensively, as well as playing some in Europe, he has shared stages with such terrific artists as Kelly Joe Phelps, Josh Rouse, Dan Bern, Michelle Malone, Patrick Sweany, Tim Easton, Sarah Lee Guthrie, and many others. His latest record, Quicksilver Tequila, was released in the summer of 2018. It follows 2012’s blues-soaked The Key & The Cross, described by the Seattle Weekly as a showcase for “badass guitar playing” and an “equally strong voice.”
