Modern Relics, Breaks & Swells, And The Gold Country says
Modern Relics’ music fills in the spaces between the soulful songwriting of Bill Withers and Van Morrison and the twangy energy of Glen Campbell and Johnny Cash. Self proclaimed “Country-soul” artists, MR weaves horns and pedal steel around tuneful melodies and a solid grooves—sounding at once familiar and new.

Their high-energy live shows have been attracting a lot of attention at clubs throughout Seattle, such as the Tractor Tavern, Columbia City Theater, and Hwy 99 Blues Club. With their 10-piece band, including a horn section and a mix of male and female vocals, Modern Relics really know how to entertain a crowd. They have already shared the stage with the Ian McFeron Band, Massy Ferguson, Ha Ha Tonka, and many more.

The band’s first EP, Side 1, was released in June 2013, produced by Kevin Suggs (KEXP). The album quickly sold out of its initial pressings at shows and online. The songs “Trying to be a Better Man” and “Precious Thing,” as well as the raucous “The Feeling’s Taking Over” became fan favorites. The band is in preproduction to record its second EP, Side 2, which will be released in 2015.
