One of the great things about The Bushwick Book Club Seattle artists is that they are always making awesome stuff. Here are a few projects that you should know about.
MoZo – The Neighborhood Has Changed
At the very center of the heart and soul of The Bushwick Book Club Seattle you will find MoZo. This acoustic folk-pop/rock duo is composed of two very talented musicians Moe Provencher and Aimee Zoe. When they are not out conquering the world on one of their epic bicycle tours, they are making albums such as The Neighborhood Has Changed. It came out November of 2015. Give it a spin. You will like it.
Wes Weddell — Nobody’s Flag
Wes Wedell has written more songs inspired by books than any other Bushwick artist I know (and I know them all!). His latest album Nobody’s Flag contains nothing but songs inspired by books. How cool is that?!
Emmett Montgomery — Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montogmery
There is so much to say about Television’s Emmett Montgomery. He’s funny, he’s beardy, and he is full of kindness. He fills our ears with delightful stories and jokes, and we love him for it. Every first Sunday of the month at the Annex Theatre you can catch him hosting a show called Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery.
“Each show is a love letter to the strangeness and talent that walks among us featuring brilliant people doing the things they are really good at doing or something they have never done on stage before. Prizes are won! Friends are made! Nightmares are shared and Joy is experienced!”
It’s always a good time. You may event see other Bushwick artists taking part in the weird and awesomeness as well. Check it out!
Ahamefule Oluo – Now I’m Fine
Ahamefule Oluo is a composer, writer, storyteller and comedian. He created the brilliant stage show Now I’m Fine which you can see on April 2nd at the Moore theatre. Just last week the show had a short run off Broadway as part of the Under the Radar Festival. Ahamefule was also recently featured on the NPR podcast This American Life.
“AHAMEFULE OLUO leads a team of talented musicians in a grand-scale experimental pop opera about keeping it together. Drawing from darkly funny personal stories about illness, despair, and regeneration, Now I’m Fine ranges from intimate to epic, featuring a 17-piece orchestra and a spectacular cast of performers”
Joy Mills — Deep Cut
In the fall of 2015 Joy Mills toured Germany for four weeks. But right before she left, she released this little gem titled Deep Cut. It’s a six song EP that captures all that folky Joy Mills goodness that we’ve come to know and love. Fun Fact: Deep Cut was Engineered and mixed by fellow Bushwick artist Mike McDermott.
