Believe it or not, there are musicians among the staggering number of people moving to Seattle during the boom time. Though last week’s episode profiled some of the musicians lost in the boom, there are people around the country eager to take their place within the community. This episode gives insight from three singer-songwriters who were drawn by Seattle’s legendary music scene in hopes of advancing their careers. You will hear from Tekla Waterfield. She moved to Seattle in 2010 and is soon launching her second album, which is produced by noted Seattle guitarist Jeff Fielder. She describes what drew her to the city and how she has found a way to make a living as a full-time musician. You will also hear from Dustin Vance, who recently moved here from a small town in Indiana and whose band Fond Farewell has an upcoming gig at the High Dive on May 16th. He describes the emotions of starting anew in Seattle and attempting to integrate into the music scene. You will also hear from Jeremiah Mothersell, who was drawn by both Seattle’s music scene and it’s tech scene. He gives insight into the options that are available to newcomers to this thriving economy. The episode gives further perspective on the health of the Seattle music scene through the experiences of those drawn to be a part of it.
