October was a month filled with music at the YMCA Kirkland Teen Union Building, when over 23 bands participated in a youth empowerment music program, One Song, One Chance.

Talent ranging from the jazz, soul-filled group Fusion all the way to the young, hard rocking band Scinite, local teens brought music to life on the Eastside.  The top 5 bands chosen by peers and judging panels secured a band development deal that will span over six months, including a CD recording, mentorship, concerts, seminars, workshops, and more.

Suggestion Box, Twin Creature, Genuine Gentlemen, and Sophia Duccini earned a place a top 5.  The 1st place, and additional winner of a Prize Package from Guitar Center, was a trio known as Fringe Shift. This alternative rock group starring Sawyer Thompson on guitar, Giovanni Rechhi on drums, and Matt Jorgenson on bass has both the fan base and the talent to take the music scene by storm.
