    Episode 57!

    Cheryl Perry and I met a year ago at the Liquor Store in Concrete. She loves live music and saying yes to adventures. I can guarantee that her story is one that you've never heard before and I can't thank her enough for being so raw, open and honest about her life.

    SS #056: Tim Mechling

    Welcome to Episode 2 of the new season! My guest this week is Tim Mechling, local musician, amazing cooker of meats and my friend. He is the co founder of Washington State's best record label, Washingtones Records, where they "empower Washington’s independent music talent through honesty, collaboration and ingenuity." Sam Chue and Tim started the label in 2023 and I was honored as one of their top supporters at their recent 1 year anniversary party. I love supporting anyone who follows their passion and starts a big endeavor like this.

    Be safe, be of use, and, like Tim and Sam, go do something hard.

Learn about his various jobs he's had, hear stories of local music (and musicians) and enjoy a tune on the mandolin. You should go see Jim with his band mates, Undecided, at the Birdsview Brewery on Friday, May 3rd.

    SS #054: Selena Mac

    Episode 54!

    Selena Mac was recommended to me by several musicians in this area. I'm so glad I sat down and heard her story about how she became a musician. I'm always under the assumption that good musicians are good because they started playing at a young age. Selena has only picked up the guitar within the last 5 years and she not only has her own band, Dangerous Curves, she also plays with Leo Bootes and Co AND in Cats Like Us with podcast favorite Miguel Garibay, Bob Paltrow and Stone Jones. This weekend they are playing up in Bellingham at Ramble Tamble from 7-10pm on Saturday night. To keep track of her upcoming gigs, go follow her on IG (@selena_mac_) or on Facebook. She's also playing solo at Brando's BBQ in Bow Edison on January 27th. Thank you for coming over Selena! I'm glad your story is out there (so far!) and I can't wait to see what 2024 brings. Check out her tunes on Spotify too.

    This is my last episode of Season #1 of Skagit Storytellers. I am happy to be ending this season with Selena's great story. I'll see you guys in the Spring.
