Some'tet

I don’t know, semantics I guess, (and does anything but semantics quibble?) We call this a Bossa though it’s a Samba, and we call the song ‘Chevy’ though its actual title is ‘Java’, and we’re called Some’tet because nobody could pronounce Callipygous Trio, and though we're typically a six piece -- drummer Dodd was out of town … Well, this video is from our live gig March 3rd, 2017 on KVSH 101.9FM, better known as VoV, or the Voice of Vashon.

 

 

We entered NPR's 2017 Tiny Desk competition along with 6000 other acts. But as life sometimes just hands you a hard boiled egg, well -- you just got to break up the shell, look around for a pinch of salt and sit down to a light lunch. Christine was sick, so we switched songs. Whitmore took over the lead vocals of another song that we seldom play, but that's ok. And Dodd was out of town. You do what you gotta do -- pull "Plan C" out of your ass ...  what the hell, we still had a great time. This is the video we sent in, Shelley Hanna filmed it, edited it overnight. We thank her! She's responsible for most of the photography on this website! And she's great! Anyway, enjoy ... we give you the song 'Hands'.

 

 

Here's a short clip from our Ep release shindig in October 2016. It was a new song called "Heard the Owls Talking", this being only the second time we've ever played it. Anyway, we had a blast that night and wanted to thank KVSH 101.9fm, the Red Bike, Pete Welsh and all the people who braved the seriously crappy weather to see us play -- many thanks! 

 

 

Just a bit of a teaser of our song 'Walk You Home' featured on our first EP STEPS -- live at the Red Bike on Vashon. 

 

 

A bit of 'Face in the Fire' from a gorgeous Sunday evening at the Snapdragon cafe, summer of 2016.
