The Washover Fans
With a refreshing and original take on acoustic music, The Washover Fans bring together four accomplished musicians with decades of playing and performing experience each having written, recorded and performed with various and varied outside projects (Post Harbor, Another Perfect Crime, Reyshard, Colin Isler Band).  Seattle musicians Colin, Gillian, David and Seth write songs independently, but edit and arrange as an ensemble, creating a broad but cohesively twangy set, full of interlocking vocals and lush acoustic instrumentation.

The four musicians push each other creatively to write and perform songs that each deliberately evoke very different emotions and soundscapes resulting in a set list in which no two songs sound the same. The Washover Fans create an intimate live experience drawing from each of the four musicians’ dynamic musical backgrounds. A live show consists of original music as well as thoughtful renditions of various covers that pay homage to the diverse American music experience. Instruments rotate the stage and include guitars, mandolin, banjo, cello, percussion and harmonica. Lead vocals are shared among the three distinct vocalists and are supported with three-part harmony.

With time well-spent stumbling through jazz charts, playing in rock bands and blending into Catholic school choirs, it’s been a long and varied musical journey that has culminated in the Washover Fans' sound, but it’s the years of soaking up the simplest rock and the sweetest church music that guides them to this day. As a partial list of instrument proficiencies, out of the four members there are four guitarists, three vocalists, a violinist, a violist, a cellist, a drummer, two pianists, two bassists, two mandolinists, one banjo-ist and an emerging pedal steel player. Performance credits include a grand total of 13 rock bands, a few jazz ensembles, untold numbers of choirs and providing the musical backdrop for a total of 25 weddings. Since forming in 2009 under the Washover Fans moniker, however, the group has scaled back the scope of their ambitions and focused on folk, alt-country and Americana, drawing on musical first loves from childhoods in Connecticut, Washington, North Carolina and Georgia.
