Hometown: Seattle, WA
Way South ornaments feisty rhythms with wistful melodies intent on unpredictable joy. Out of the gray of the NW, this post rock family threads a bright strand through the Seattle music scene. Jen Fox (lead vox, bass) and Jim Srnec (guitar) have been collaborating for over 18 years. Michael Fox (guitar) and Jen shared their first gig before they were out of elementary school. Mark Bateman (drums), though a recent addition to this rock n' roll family, intuitively fits into the fold as if his 20+ years on the kit seem to be meant for Way South. Shannon Carpenter (vox, percussion) has been in the trenches since the band's first show and continues to fill the sonic seems with beauty and grace.
