Our Top Ten Favorite Musician Quotes from SEA live MUSIC Year One

Exactly one year ago, SEA live MUSIC ceased to be just something that lived in our minds to something that lives on our computers, your smartphones and our moms’ lists of “favorite sites.” Some 238 posts later, we’re 365 days older and more in tune with the nearly infinite reasons that make Seattle one of the best music cities of all time.

Over the past year, we were lucky enough to interview some of our favorite musicians passing through town, more than a few who call our fine city home.

Without further ado, scroll down the page and take a stroll down memory lane with our favorite out-of-context quotes from the past year.
