EarthtoneSkytone is a multidimensional electro-acoustic songwriting duo from Seattle. Carlos Snaider and Kelsey Mines’ layered polyrhythms, angular jazz harmonies and expansive quiet create mysterious sound worlds where immersive listening can happen. A product of Seattle’s creative music scene, Mines and Snaider bring their varied influences from world creative music traditions, dance music, pop culture and meditative philosophies into a singular space, celebrating their convergences and differences. At once urban and meditative, ritual and playful, ETST shatters assumptions about when and where sacred music can happen.

Watch: EarthtoneSkytone live at Jack Straw

2021 Artist Support Program: Produce an album of original, experimental songs that find comfort amidst uncertainty and change.
