"If you lived in Seattle during the grunge era of the early to mid 1990s, it’s possible you dropped in on a show at a popular club — The Crocodile Café in Belltown, Moe’s on Capitol Hill, OK Hotel in Pioneer Square, or RKCNDY downtown — and pushed your way through a broiling, sweaty, noisy, and smoke-glazed mosh pit to hear Hammerbox, Goodness, or one-offs The Rockfords. Akre (pronounced AH-CREE) was the frontwoman for all those bands, creating music that filled the airwaves of KCMU (now KEXP) and The End and albums that lined the shelves at record stores like Easy Street, Orpheum, and Sonic Boom." Todd Matthews, South Sound Magazine

“When they sing you’re transported to a different dimension, an unearthly realm. Here, you’ll find safety and security. Here, you’ll be able to rest, to find peace. And here, you’ll discover the courage you need to start living the life you want.” — NPR
