When most people think of Seattle Washington, they think of the music.
Remember back some 20 years ago when there was the huge musical fad of Grunge Rock? We are the birthplace of Grunge, and it’s echoes are still present to this very day.
Although everyone knows about the big names like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden, many of them don’t know how rich and diverse the music scene has been, and continues to be. On the West Coast, Seattle Washington is the king of the music scene, as well as the king of the cannabis scene. California has a much bigger reputation for cannabis, but for my money it cannot touch the stuff we grow here in and around Seattle. The cannabis in Seattle is so good that we regularly have people drive down from Canada to buy our locally grown stuff. Everyone knows that Canadian cannabis is among the best in the world, and yet up there, they dream of smoking Seattle herb. The same is true for music in the Seattle area, it is a magnet for talent for hundreds of miles around. If you want to get noticed as a musician, then Seattle is your best bet in this part of the country. I could never cut it here myself, the level of talent is too high, so I pivoted in my job goals and started working as a Seattle area concert promoter. I still get to be a part of the thriving Seattle music scene, but I no longer have to be any good at performing live music.
