Pub Music: Steve Amsden

While spending his days creatively building gardens and landscapes, Steve Amsden also concentrates on his music––writing and playing. He has recorded with outstanding musicians and won awards for his songwriting. A warm, talented performer, he’s widely acknowledged as an exceptionally creative musician-songwriter. Over the years he developed the strong voice and powerful presence for which he’s now well known.

Steve consistently works on new material, performs, records, jams and rehearses, produces music events and supports other musicians. He plays many types of music––folk, bluegrass, country (and Western), rock and roll, blues and jazz standards. He is a mainstay in a community that joyfully integrates the arts.

“Steve is amazing. He is a world-class songwriter and musician, so if he had an ego, it would be well deserved. He doesn't though. He is as happy to play in support as he is to play out in front, and whatever he gets involved with always sounds better with him than without. There are no half measures with Steve, whether he is helping with the apple crush, wrestling with our young son, or making many of the Island musicians sound the best they can be.”

Pub Music: Jon Whalen

If you’ve not seen Jon Whalen perform on Vashon Island, well it’s time to come out from that hidey hole!  You can barely turn a corner on the island and he’s not right up in your grill; on stage, the radio, lying face down in the gutter….  Jon describes his music as mind/body-inspired folk-rock. Fantasy and experience share the subject matter of the songs from time spent in Senegal, West Africa, Europe and hitch-hiking around the U.S., to memories of lovers and friends; lost, found, or never quite there. Relationships, road stories, true and fabricated anecdotes and a skewed global view, fuel the lyrics of his original tunes.

Pub Music: Tim Couldn't Make It

Way back in the mid-1980s, bassist Tim Dahms was making a name for himself in the hip and happening Maui music scene. Much in demand, the tall good-looking Tim could pick and choose the bands and gigs he wanted to bless with his presence and prowess. The fact that most bass players have this luxury wasn’t the point. Tim joined a local rock-and-roll outfit called The Sharks. Playing guitar in the Sharks at the time was Doug Pine. Tim and Doug became friends and also became each other’s favorite musicians, so much so that Tim once asked Doug to tune his bass. Ten strings of mutual admiration. 

One day in July 1989 Tim’s brother Rick appeared on Maui. A successful advertising executive with offices in the state of Connecticut, Rick brought his guitar along. Tim and Doug and Rick played on the beach one night and as is said, the rest is history. They booked a gig and when it was time to play, there was no Tim. “Tim couldn’t make it”, Rick said. This happened twice more before Rick and Doug couldn’t get a booking. Thanks, Tim. 

Rick went back to Connecticut and Doug left Maui and moved to Washington. Fast forward a few years and we find Doug working on the Vashon ferry. Loading a car onto the boat in Fauntleroy one day, Doug looks up and waddaya know, there’s Rick at the wheel. Turns out Rick lives on Vashon, but Tim, he couldn’tmake it. So Rick and Doug play music together for about 20 years until it occurs to them that it might be fun to play out. So they did, and they do. With each other, and with others.

Pub Music: Julia Hanowell & Madeleine Wolczko

It all started at a high school open mic, freshmen at VHS, Madeleine Wolczko and Julia Hanowell took the stage with two guitars and debuted as musicians. 

Nearly a decade later, the two are still finding time to play together and share their love for music. Although their careers may have peaked in high school after getting the opportunity to open for Macklemore, they are still playing shows here and there and continuing to write songs. 

Julia currently resides in Oakland as an elementary school garden teacher while Madeleine sails the sea, navigating massive ships in the Maritime Industry. The two guitar players and singers love to blend their voices in harmonies and find good pop and folk songs to cover. 

Julia has been developing more original songs and finding house concerts in Oakland to perform at. Madeleine has been using her time on ships to record sweet videos for her Youtube channel which can be found here - https://www.youtube.com/user/mattwazaki 

When Madeleine gets time off from the ships, she comes to visit Julia in Oakland and the two have been known to spend many hours singing around a fire with roommates and friends. They are incredibly excited to be performing again together on Vashon as it has been years since their last time playing at the Red Bike and Strawberry Festival.
