Gifted Gab
Seattle’s own Gifted Gab has the ability to create complex verses with variety in her sound, ranging from smooth melodies to strong lyrics. She grew up with constant exposure to music. From singing with her mother in the church choir to learning to play the piano at age 6, she quickly developed an affinity for memorizing and reciting rap lyrics. The witty wordsmith finds inspiration in the lyrical genius of artists such as Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Bahamadia and Tupac.
Wynne
At first glance, one would not expect this young, blonde to have achieved so much in the rap game. Self taught since the age of 9, Wynne has been honing in on her talent for words, rhythm, and melodies by writing and performing her own rap music. At age 20, Wynne has already garnered attention from some of the most impactful entrepreneurs, writers, artists, and executives in the music industry, including Snoop Dogg and World Star Hip Hop.
Fritzwa

Paris Alexa
Paris Alexa's playful doo-wop pop is masterfully crafted using nothing more than a bit of technology and her voice. Many of her songs are done using no instruments, and indeed Paris Alexa’s strength comes from her complex vocal arrangements, ones with Motown and old-school soulful cues written all over them. Citing influences from Sarah Bareilles to Earth, Wind and Fire, the resulting sound gives her brand of pop plenty of separation from the rest, adding a unique R&B flavor to the contemporary pop song.
Dreckig
Dreckig
What started as drum lessons over ten years ago between longtime partners Shana Lindbeck & Papi Fimbres, they never thought their musical careers would culminate to this point of being a two piece dance/club cumbia infused/kraut band. Being in Orquestra Pacifico Tropical together since its inception, these two have definitely honed in their sound & musical prowess with their new band, Dreckig.
Sheers
Sheers, an art pop duo fronted by Lily Breshears, coaxes listeners into otherworldly piano riffs and time feels with her memorable melodies and hip-hop grooves played by jazz drummer Grant Pierce. After years of being a backing musician for groups such as Haley Heynderickx and Big Haunt, Breshears sought to combine the thoughtful lyrics and emotional catharsis offered by those songs with the tension-laden music she plays as a classical harpist and pianist. "Depth," the single from Sheers' debut eponymous EP set to be released in September 2016, can be found on the 2016 PDX Pop Now! compilation.
