Giants in the Trees are a Rock Band hailing from Wahkiakum County, Washington. The quartet is inspired by the environment and culture of the Lower Columbia River. Musicians Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, Krist Novoselic and Ray Prestegard have created a sound that could best be described as Pop / Rock. The band is not offended by terms like schmaltz. On the other hand, there are heavy groove numbers, screaming slide guitar and accordion. There is even an anthem-so raise your arms with the phone flashlights.

How did this blend of influences come to be? The band first met for a casual jam in the Skamokawa Grange Hall last spring. The players wasted no time at all composing their first two songs on that first day. They were hooked to the music and a band was born. Eventually, as more material was produced, the group started playing shows such as the Wahkiakum County Fair and a special benefit raising over $2,400 for needed repairs to the Grange Hall.

Skull Driver
Skull Diver is a plush pink nightmare of sultry vocals, heavy lyrics, reminiscent synths and dark dreamy guitars. Fronted by sisters Mandy and Ally. The trio derives inspiration from grindhouse film, classic Americana and 70’s cult-culture.

Mere Mention
Mere Mention is a dream pop/shoegaze/surf guitar band from Portland, Oregon with a sound similar to 90s alt rock bands like The Breeders and Pixies along with some more contemporary influences like Alvvays, Autolux, and Beach House. They are currently working on their debut album, due out in the summer of 2018
