Mts. and Tunnels
Mts. & Tunnels is the band you already know but have never heard. With roots in american songwriting, alt. country and folk music, their second album For a Day Or A Lifetime was released April 18th 2015 at the Fremont Abbey in Seattle. The title was taken from the abandoned slogan from the band’s founder Chris Poage’s hometown of Bothell, Wa.
Mts. & Tunnels got its start as a side project around 2012 between tour dates of band members other projects like Panda Conspiracy, Publish the Quest, Eternal Fair, Dub Lounge and more. They recorded an 8 song LP with Mel Dettmur and released it at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard. They went on to perform on a network TV show, record a 7” single – Pictures with Mike Coykendall (M. Ward) and play festivals like Summer Meltdown, Fisherman’s Village, Downtown Sounds (Bellingham) and in venues all over the NW region.
In 2014 Mts. bandmates Chris and Sarah joined Jason Webley, Shenandoah Davis, Jherek Bischoff, Led to Sea and more in a songwriting project about a scrapbook found in a dumpster in San Francisco. Oddly enough, the book was about Margaret Rucker one of the founding daughters of the city of Everett, Wa. The concept, show, book and CD (including songs by Mts. & Tunnels) were beautifully curated by Jason Webley. That group toured the west coast in theaters briefly and watched in amazement as people came out of the woodwork filling in details of this bizarre true story.
Airport Way is an Island Rock band that blends reggae, classic rock, and popular music throughout their original catalog of songs. It’s good live music.
