The Lovetones, Chief Nowhere, The Ancient Sons

Sure, Portland and Olympia may get most of the spotlight when it comes to folk from the Northwest, but Spokane, WA is giving these cities a run for their money. Case in point: Karli Fairbanks, a singer-songwriter who ticks all the boxes when it comes to strong vocals, equally impressive instrumentals and emotion. For fans of Neko Case and Cat Power.
