SEA-TAC AIRPORT INTRODUCING TRAVELERS TO LOCAL MUSIC

KOMO NEWS

KOMO News ran a story yesterday about Sir Mix-a-lot lending his voice to the Sea-Tac Airport overhead announcements in the terminal and baggage claim areas as a part of the Sea-Tac Airport Music Initiative. The edgy rapper, whose “Baby Got Back” video was once banned from MTV, talks about his excitement about the initiative. “It’s cool to see something as serious as Sea-Tac embrace the local arts,” said Sir Mix-A-Lot. “It just trips me out. That’s pretty bold.” Mix, along with other local artists, like Quincy Jones, Jerry Cantrell, Allen Stone, and Macklemore, are welcoming and directing passengers to various points of interest, from the USO desk to the smoking sections. The Sea-Tac Airport Music Initiative is a cooperative effort by the Port of Seattle, Seattle Music Commission and music-specialist PlayNetwork showcasing the northwest region’s vibrant music culture and enhancing the experience of millions of passengers who pass through Sea-Tac Airport each year.  Along with the celebrity overhead announcements, the initiative interacts with passengers of the airport through a local music web player, mobile app, music videos featured on terminal and baggage claim monitors, and overhead music in the terminals.

Seattle Weekly
After a successful release of his recent second album which placed him high on the iTunes charts, Allen Stone has been invited to perform on Conan O’Brien’s show next week. The R&B Northwest hit is steadily growing in popularity; Stone’s show during Seattle’s City Arts Festival this coming weekend has already sold out of individual tickets and now the only way to attend is with a wristband. For his debut performance on Conan, he will perform the soulful finale to his new album, “Unaware“. The performance is expected to bring the house down in one way or another, as Stone is reputedly a  performer not to miss. Tune in on October 26th and watch Allen Stone join the ranks of other artists representing Seattle on the late-night circuit.
