The Cupholders - The Conor Byrne EP

Our friends in The Cupholders, Seattle's contribution to bands named after useful items, now have unleashed their latest tribute to a Ballard watering hole -- the four track The Conor Byrne EP.  It is part of their continuing series about the Seattle neighborhood bars that have played a role in their musical lives over the years.  This is joyful, exuberant, and impeccably soulful rock and roll, and you owe it to yourself to let it spark up your life.  We guarantee that it will put a spring in your step that your significant other will notice (they may run and hide, but they will notice).

And while I don't want to embarrass anyone, and the guys are too proud to mention it, they are only short about 3,567,190 download purchases in order to realize their hope of renting a limo to travel to the pub that will host the final EP in the series.  Help them achieve their dream.

The Cupholders are Bart Cameron, Casey Ruff, and Doug Hood (the sometimes employed alter ego of Sam Russell), with help from friends Kubby Casual, Dave Forrester, Joy Mills, Colin J. Nelson (who also recorded and mixed the album), Kate Noson, Ken Nottingham, and Shadrack Scott.  The Conor Byrne EP is a digital release available at the Bandcamp link below.
