Breaks and Swells
With influences ranging widely across the spectrum of Soul, Rock, Funk, Jazz, and Pop, Breaks and Swells are hard to pin down. What isn't hard to understand is the power and energy they bring to live performances; convincing even usually hard-to-sway Seattle crowds to get down and dance. The voice of front-woman Marquetta Miller has shades of Diana Ross with an unexpected edge. Derrick Jones on drums and Brice Ervin on bass, pull from unexpected sources for their rhythms. In addition to sharing song-writing duties with Miller, guitarist Dylon Tubb and pianist Quinton Harris have a major hand in the band's arrangements and over-all sound. A rotating cast of horn players features Jeremy Shaskus and Mike Lundquist. Breaks and Swells are no stranger to Seattle festivals, having played sets during the Macefield Festival, Capitol Hill Block Party, Noise for the Needy, and Hoodstock. The band self-released an EP in 2014, and had the pleasure of releasing a single in 2016 on Lost Hymn, "Key to Love". Breaks and Swells are looking forward to releasing their Erik Blood-produced LP, "We Will Not Despair" in the Fall of 2017.
