Seattle pop-rocker, Isaiah Dominguez, has announced the release of his new EP, The Evergreen State. To be released on February 5th, the EP is Dominguez’s first full band release and features notable Northwest-area artists including Gavin Phillips (This Providence) and singer/songwriter Amanda Markley. When discussing The Evergreen State, Dominguez had this to say, "I think the greatest part about this record is that it’s 100% real. These songs have actual, tangible people/places/feelings behind them. I felt the best way to present a record with that type of weight was through raw, un-autotuned, live rock n roll. In creating it, I think I was finally able to find my sound and voice the long overdue Thank You’s to a region that’s supported my dreams from the very beginning.“

What do you get when two friends who have been creating music together for the past decade decide to release a collaboration? The answer: Traveler’s Cold and Westing’s Split EP.
Traveler’s Cold is the side project of Sam Richards (Cult Leader) while Westing is the side project of Matt Mascarenas (Heartless Breakers, Daytrader) - both of whom have been friends and worked together for years, so it only made sense that the two decided to create a split to share both of their projects!
The Traveler’s Cold / Westing split will be available digitally on December 11th and will include four tracks:
1. Far Too Busy
2. Bad Blood
3. Let Go
4. Find A Job
