A relaxed scene made for mixing and mingling or finding a cozy corner for a couple, sophisticated with decor and delicious wine, with live music making the night magical. This isn't a concert, it's a hot spot with a cool atmosphere.

The most important advice I have gotten for making a career for yourself, is having a deep unwavering reason for why you are doing it. People often refer to the arts as a challenging field to pursue; this is not a well known secret, but I’d also argue that anything where your whole heart is truly involved will be challenging, even if it's considered more "secure" by the eyes of society. For me, being a touring musician, songwriter and instrumentalist is my vocation of choice. As music is my greatest passion in life, I know there have been, are, and will continue to be obstacles in my path. None of which are greater than myself getting in my own way. Understanding this helped me come up with my own unwavering reason for doing music: people. Human connection, vulnerability and expression are some of the most powerful things in my life- though there are many avenues to pursue such things, music to me is the greatest. Music helps people feel the intangible, it connects groups who otherwise may never speak or acknowledge each other, it can speak to the creativity inside us all (at various levels); music gives hope. And if I can be in any way a part of that, I would consider myself to be incredibly blessed.
Growing up in a rich cultural center of Russia, St.-Petersburg, Elena Maque was always drawn to art. Whether it was dancing, painting or playing an instrument, she always felt like Art was the best way to express her soul and true feelings.
Upon graduating from Mussorgsky College of Music in St. Petersburg, Russia, Elena was already an established musician. For a few years she was a part of the city's renowned jazz big band led by Gennady Golshtein, which toured Russia and other European countries. During that time she was also working on some of her own music projects. After moving to the US, Elena started searching for new ideas, learning a lot from the local musicians of Seattle.
Combing her knowledge in classical music, jazz and funk styles resulted in creation of Elena's unique and individual sound. As a composer she believes that every song has a story, an experience or a feeling that left it's footprint in the artist's soul. Her music is sincere and personal.
Currently Elena is leading Maquattack band and Elena Maque Quartet.
In 2017 Elena and her partner D'Vonne Lewis founded an art project called SoulCanvas that features and promotes various artists in the North West America.

On Sweet Whiskey, Seattle, WA country artist (you read that right) Miller Campbell has boldly declared her intent to claim a prominent place in the canon of western music. It would serve us all well to take Ms. Campbell at her word. Armed with a voice at turns clear and bright as high mountain air and round, warm, and rough in all the right places, Campbell sings with a natural assuredness usually only found in artists with decades of experience. She gets it honest, but almost never got here at all.
Born into a musical family (Miller is Glen Campbell's second cousin - grandpa Bud Campbell is his brother), she grew up a classically trained musician steeped in musical theater. A statuesque natural redhead, Campbell soon grew tired of being told she was too striking for the chorus line and started singing at open mic nights while in college. “At this point I didn't even know my history with Glen and that side of the family. I was drawn to country music as the songwriting style was so similar to musical theater.”
