The Deep Wake, the Bainbridge-based indie band, performs along with three other bands in the finals of the Experience Music Project’s Sound Off! competition.
The band is comprised of 2009 Bainbridge High School grad and singer-songwriter Adam Foley; Laura Jean Anderson from Olympia; Nora Lang, a junior at Bainbridge High and Eagle Harbor High schools on fiddle; BHS 2009 grad Eric Schuler on percussion and Eagle Harbor graduate Rivers Moore on bass guitar.
The band competes against three other bands, “Nude,” “Feet,” and wild card winner “Special Explosion.”
After being one of 12 bands selected from a pool of 140 bands, The Deep Wake took first place in the Feb. 11 first-round competition.
Among the top prizes are a spot on stage at Bumbershoot, recording studio time, and professional coaching by industry consultants. In its 11th year, Sound Off!, a battle-of-the-bands for musicians aged 21 and under, has launched some notable talent in new and indie music such as Fleet Foxes lead singer, and The Globes.
Supporters of Bainbridge-based band The Deep Wake will want to cheer them on at 8 p.m. March 3 in the Sky Church at Experience Music Project in Seattle Center.
Tickets are $8 for students and EMP Museum members and $12 for the general public. For more information and tickets, visit www.empmuseum.org/soundoff.
