Who We Are

SEAliveMUSIC is brought to you by:

Karalee Sargent is a Seattle native who fell in love with the local live music scene after seeing Reggie & The Full Effect and Alkaline Trio play at The Showbox in 2003. She has marketing experience with the Sony BMG Music Group and the Universal Music Group, served as an amateur audio engineer and has been a freelance contributor for local and national music publications since 2007. Aside from the Seattle music scene, Karalee enjoys red wine, traveling, cooking and watching an embarrassing amount of funny animal videos online.

Hailing from the other Washington, Matt Whiting spent his formative years learning about and playing music in venues across D.C., Virginia and Maryland. After hanging up his own musical aspirations in the early 2000s, Matt turned his energy to concert-going. (The fact that he lived just a few blocks from Dave Grohl’s Black Cat certainly didn’t hurt.) After getting solicited advice on the benefits of Seattle versus San Francisco living from Thurston Moore, Matt followed his heart, and Thurston’s advice, and moved out to Seattle in 2008. While he doesn’t keep up the five-shows-a-week pace set just after his Seattle debut, you can still find Matt at many of the city’s venues and festivals throughout the year. (Head over to Seattlest to read a majority of his others posts from the past two years.)

It All Starts On 1.11.11


If you’re anything like us, it sometimes takes a bit of external motivation to get you out and about during these, the darkest and dreariest months. And if you’re also like us in that you call Seattle home, you know all too well these dreary months last all too long.

While the promise of world-class caffeinated beverages can no doubt get thte city into a mellow state of overdrive, it’s really the promise of world-class music that gets many of us to leave our front doors in the first place.If you are the type of Seattlite motivated by the latter of these two stimulants, then SEA live MUSIC is your new daily fix.

On this site (and on our Twitter feed) you’ll find daily recommendations, interviews and more on the best musicians playing in our beloved city in the very near future. By combing through calendars, previews and general pontifications from our music writing brethren, we’re pleased to highlight the best of everything the Seattle scene has to offer.

Join us tomorrow and the next day and the next day for our daily picks and more.
