BJ & Migs L&L BAND OF THE WEEK: Upwell

February 13, 2018


Seattle band Upwell began in 2000 with singer/guitarist Michelle Pavcovich and guitarist Steve Schneider. Upwell's rhythm section has changed over the years. Esteemed producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney) has recorded all of Upwell’s releases since their inception, and has been Upwell’s fill-in bassist during three different stints when the band found themselves in between bass players.
Upwell’s latest record, “In Through the Outro,” was recorded by Jack Endino at Soundhouse Recording in Seattle and mixed and mastered by Martin Feveyear at Jupiter Studios in Seattle.
"What a blast it was to mix the new Upwell record. Artists so rarely take chances like these guys and a girl. It is one very bold statement of committed, complex, heavy as hell intense rock. Rhythmically, melodically, harmonically and emotionally deep, incredibly immediate and satisfying all at the same time… Self aware but not self conscious or precious, Upwell is a welcome breath of pummeling fresh, dirty air."

Upwell: To move or flow upward; to rise from an inner source.
