Seattle's Mycle Wastman Live on Peace House Sessions [Video Premiere]

Vortex Music Magazine

The R&B and soul singer stopped by The Peace House for an intimate, soul-stirring performance. Next up, catch Wastman guesting at Chance Hayden and Devin Phillips' Memorial Day Pre-Funk on May 29 at the Goodfoot.

For the past year or so, the genre-blending jazz, soul, funk and more guitarist Chance Hayden has been inviting friends and musicians into his living room to record stripped-down live performances. The latest installment in his Peace House Sessions series comes from Seattle R&B and soul singer Mycle Wastman, most widely known for his appearance on season three of NBC’s The Voice.

A regular in the Northwest scene, Wastman recently made some East Coast appearances as part of Boyd Tinsley's (of Dave Matthews Band) new side project Crystal Garden, but it was earlier this year when he shared a double bill with Jarrod Lawson at Jimmy Mak's. Before the sold-out show, Wastman warmed up by visiting The Peace House and offering "an intimate rendition of his soul-stirring 'Last To Know,'" Hayden says.

Wastman is currently producing his anticipated third full-length record—it'll be a double album dual titled Funk Shui and Picture Frames, due out on July 15.

Enjoy the live cut below and then get down with Wastman, Hayden and NOLA saxophonist Devin Phillips for a Memorial Day Pre-Funk on Sunday, May 29 at the Goodfoot Lounge. The all-star band will also feature bassist Damian Erskine, drummer Tyrone Hendrix, keyboardist Ramsey Embick and several special guest vocalists.
