======== HIGH PULP ========
Gravity, electric charge, magnetic dipoles
Buried deep in the laws of nature there is an inevitable rule

High Pulp proudly presents the MUTUAL ATTRACTION Spring 2020 Tour

It all began in 2017 when High Pulp emerged from a weekly “Funk Church” jam session at Seattle’s historic jazz club The Royal Room. It was here that High Pulp’s founding members discovered one another. An inexplicable force pulled the collective together to produce the high-octane jazz, funk, hip-hop, punk, psychedelic cocktail that soon became their debut album Bad Juice (released June 2018).

Then, in 2019, High Pulp’s orbit collided with three well-known Seattle-based R&B/soul artists – JusMoni, Falon Sierra, and Shaina Shepherd (BEARAXE) – bringing vocalists into High Pulp’s extended musical family for the first time. Each of these artists joined in writing and recording a track with High Pulp, and together the three tracks formulate the Light Fix EP (released Fall 2019).

Now, the story of MUTUAL ATTRACTION continues with a series of three EPs released throughout 2020 in partnership with Portland-based Dutch Records. Each track is a cover performed in a single live take, with the intention of honoring the original composition while also electrifying it with 21st-century synthesizers, pedalboards, and production in true High Pulp style. In the way that music is a grand tapestry of past, present, and future threads woven together, the MUTUAL ATTRACTION series explores what happens when an artist meditates deeply on the influential threads of their musical past and reweaves them into the musical present, repeatedly asking the question: “What if?”

======== Motus ========
Blending neosoul, funk and jazz

Motus is a seven-piece new soul infusion hailing from Seattle. Their indulgent, smooth style has brought the band up and down the West Coast since they released their debut EP in 2019. The band is constantly on the hunt for the next groove and each member brings something unique to the table, seamlessly blending elements of funk, soul and jazz into their compositions. The band formed in 2017 in Bellingham, brought together by a shared love of experimenting with harmonies, time and rich layers of sound. Motus exudes a vibrancy you can instantly feel coming from the stage, and between the intricate harmonies of the band’s three vocalists and their effortlessly cohesive sound, Motus is a force to be reckoned with.

“As seen time and time again, Motus mesmerizes audience members with a wide range of exuberant talent. Their all encompassing sound, inclusive of strong harmonies, horns, and funk, made it nearly impossible to find anyone in the crowd who wasn’t grooving and dancing along to the music.” – Kelsea Hill, “What’s Up Magazine”

======== The Pickle Company ========
The Pickle Company is made up of a group of humans who reside in Bellingham. Their pickles can be described as slightly sour, funky, crisp, well seasoned, and refreshing. Many people would say the same about their music.
