Seattle’s Pickwick Started Exciting Everybody When They Stopped Boring Themselves!

June 18, 2013 - The first incarnation of Pickwick was centered on Galen Disston’s acoustic guitar strummed songs.
Seattle band Pickwick offers a fresh sound while playing back to traditional rock and soul roots - a sound that is quickly turning this six-piece into a rising star in their local music scene with national success soon to follow. The group's debut full-length album, Can't Talk Medicine, comes out this month and is packed with great new tracks, including one featuring XPN favorite Sharon Van Etten.
Released one single at a time on 7" vinyl it put the band on the map and became one of the most popular albums of the year in Seattle.

February 18, 2013 - Formed in 2008, Pickwick members Galen Disston, Michael and Garrett Parker, Cassady Lillstrom, Alex Westcoat, and Kory Kruckenberg forged a path toward neo-soul and in 2011 released a compilation of music from three of their EPs.
