Seattle Growth Podcast 4.11: Building Seattle’s future through music

How will music shape Seattle’s future?

Episode 11 of the Seattle Growth Podcast, Season 4, takes up the topic with two successful musicians whose careers have been rooted in the Seattle scene.

Hollis Wong-Wear, a Grammy-nominated artist whose music has been heard by millions, shares what Seattle can learn from her recent move to Los Angeles, and speaks more broadly to the power of music to influence Seattle’s future.

And Chris Early, a founding member of Band of Horses—whose debut single “The Funeral” was named one of the top songs of its decade by Pitchfork media—shares what he hopes Seattle will do to ensure that the musicians will continue to be able to thrive in the city in the future.

The episode also previews the song “Cuz I Wanna” by Hollis Wong-Wear’s band The Flavr Blue.
