Shawn Mullins
After a series of indie record releases, Shawn Mullins’ critical breakthrough came when 1998 Soul’s
Core album shot him to fame on the strength of its Grammy-nominated No. 1 hit, “Lullaby” followed by
AAA/Americana No. 1 “Beautiful Wreck” from 2006’s 9th Ward Pickin’ Parlor. His song, “Shimmer” was used in
promotion of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney and was included on the Dawson’s Creek soundtrack. He
co-wrote “All in My Head” which was featured in episode one of the hit TV sitcom “Scrubs.” Mullins also cowrote the Zac Brown Band’s No. 1 country tune “Toes.” In early 2002, he formed super group The Thorns with
Matthew Sweet and Pete Droge. For the 20th anniversary, Shawn revisited the music on Soul’s Core and
recorded two new versions of the album. He calls this Soul’s Core Revival. This is not a remix or a remaster of
the original, but rather brand new recordings with new arrangements of the songs – one album is new stripped
down solo performances, some on guitar, some on piano and maybe one a cappella and the second is a new
studio recording with his full band, Soul Carnival.

Laryssa Birdseye
Laryssa Birdseye is a soul/folk/pop singer with a dirty mouth and a heart of gold. Guitar in hand, Laryssa is a formidable songwriter, evoking an earlier Sheryl Crow with a dirtier, moodier sound. She’ll have you shouting along with her during an empowering anthem and in the palm of her hand during a somber ballad. Either way, be prepared to laugh and feel a lot. Backed by her full band, Laryssa is an undeniable talent and rising star in the Pacific Northwest.
