Today’s episode gives rare insight into the economics and emotional journey associated with becoming a professional musician in Seattle. With money and people moving into the city, this episode focuses on some of the musicians the city stands to lose as the economics of a recording artist change. You will hear the voice of a musician who has moved away from the city, two musicians who anticipate moving soon, and a musician whose successful band has gone on hiatus. The episode gives further perspective on the soul of Seattle’s music scene and how the community is evolving as the city transforms. In this episode are: Naomi Wachira, who was once named Seattle’s best folk singer by Seattle Weekly. Matt Bishop, who explains why his popular band Hey Marseilles recently went on hiatus. Kate Voss who was named Best Jazz Act of 2017 by Seattle Weekly and NW Jazz Vocalist of the Year by Earshot. Jason Goessl who performs in several bands including Sundae and Mr. Goessl with his wife Kate Voss.
