Influencers Concert Series Feat. Jeremy Enigk & Tomo Nakayama says
Jeremy Enigk and Tomo Nakayama perform as part of the Influencers Concert Series at EMP.

By bringing together up-and-coming artists with the established acts that inspired them, the Influencers Concert Series celebrates how the greatest forms of creativity are often sparked by sharing in the creativity of others.


Enigmatic Seattle legend Jeremy Enigk rose to fame in the mid-’90s as frontman of the seminal emo band Sunny Day Real Estate . After releasing two critically acclaimed albums on Sub Pop, Sunny Day Real Estate disbanded and Enigk began a solo career, debuting in 1996 with the rich, symphonic Return of the Frog Queen, which has since become a cult classic. In 1998, Sunny Day reunited and released two more albums, before officially parting ways again in 2001, when Enigk formed The Fire Theft. After releasing one album with that band, Enigk returned to his solo career, releasing World Waits, Missing Link, and OK Bear.

Tomo Nakayama is a singer/instrumentalist/songwriter/producer from Seattle. Known for his crystalline high-tenor voice and intricate chamber folk compositions, Tomo's music has been praised by NPR, New York Times, and KEXP, drawing comparisons to Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith, Paul Simon, and Sigur Ros. Fog On The Lens is his first solo album, made after nearly a decade fronting beloved Seattle band Grand Hallway and composing for and acting opposite Ellen Page in Lynn Shelton's Sundance Grand Jury nominated film Touchy Feely. Recorded during a residency at Seattle's Town Hall, Fog On The Lens was co-produced and mixed by Yuuki Matthews (The Shins, David Bazan) and released by Porchlight Records (U.S.) and & Records (Japan). Tomo has also composed music for movies and TV, and performed as a backing-member and collaborated with numerous bands and composers including Sera Cahoone, Gold Leaves, The Moondoggies, The Maldives, Jesse Sykes, Portland Cello Project, and Jherek Bischoff.
