On The Water

Season 4 | Episode 1

If there’s one thing that defines Seattle as much as its music, it’s the water. In this episode, the water is our backdrop, starting with a trip across Elliott Bay to West Seattle for an energetic, waterfront performance from Fauna Shade on the patio of Marination Ma Kai. Then we take a ride on a Washington State Ferry under dramatic storm clouds for a performance from “Seattle’s smoothest rapper,” Dave B.
