After forming and writing a catalog of original songs to build live performances upon, Port Angeles, Washington based folk rock band Crushwater went into the studio and recorded the first in a series of EPs with "The Cactus Storm EP". The project was recorded at Dungeness Community Studios in Sequim Washington on the Olympic Peninsula with Engineer Bill Yates.
Hailing from Port Angeles, Washington, Crushwater was formed in 2016 when singer/violinist Chandra Johnson joined forces with frontman/guitarist Scott Sullivan and drummer Casey Northern. The band immediately began crafting original songs with vocals that interlace harmony and interwoven male/female interplay, enraptured by a bed of lush violins, full harmonies, resonant guitars, and driving rhythms. The three members began melding their various styles, dynamics, intensity, and backgrounds together leading up to the release of their debut album, “The Cactus Storm”.
Before forming Crushwater, frontman Scott Sullivan released four full-length albums, from “Crushwater Symphony” in 2001 to his most recent album “Cracks and All”. With roots in snowboarding and surfing, he has gained international acclaim for both his photography and his music over the past ten years. The combination of his photography and music together has led to a unique, entwined inspiration and helped make his music a welcome addition to a wide range of films, TV shows, and live events worldwide. Scott also boasts an impressive history of concerts all around Europe, Asia, and the US, bringing high energy, experience, and an unparalleled passion to every performance.
