Zan Fiskum

Maple Valley raised singer/songwriter Zan Fiskum uses her haunting and beautifully controlled singing to craft ethereal and brooding folk/pop songs. 

Zan grew up playing make believe, wedged between the aisles of musty red velvet seats at Auburn Ave, the diner theater her family volunteered at. After years of observing the performances, Zan volunteered her own participation and discovered her transcendence on the stage. Beneath the lights she went from a quiet and mysterious girl to a bold and passionate performer. The stage is where she found her place of belonging. At the age of 12 Zan broke away from the molds of her classical music training and experimented with enmeshing forthright lyrics, cinematic melodies and explosive synth sounds into her songwriting. She went on to release her first 6 singles and achieved over 2 million streams on spotify alone.

Just 2 years later, Zan made her national debut on NBC’s The Voice as a top 9 finalist and received recognition for her dynamic performing and voice from Billboard magazine, Maggie Rogers, Camila Cabello and the Indigo Girls. Zan then launched forward with full force and started her band and wrote and released her debut album “Sleeping Problems.” She wanted this project to be brutally honest and to fully expose the wounds that inspired these songs. She has since found herself performing in iconic Seattle venues such as The Moore Theater, The Triple Door, Sasquatch and more, leaving her audience awe struck each time.

 

 

Grace McCune

Coming from a family of musicians and entertainers Grace has been steeped in the world of theater and music since she was a child. Shortly after finishing school she decided to follow the University of the Road and become a minstrel. “I have lived most of my life as a traveling Gypsy”, states Grace. Roaming from town to town she derived her inspiration from the myriad of people she met and the many cultural experiences and conditions of life. Her songwriting is deeply personal and explores her life’s journey with its triumphs, undoing’s and quest for meaning.
