If anyone understands the mission of KEXP, it's singer/songwriter Timothy Showalter. With his project Strand of Oaks, he bravely faces the pains in his past and present (marital problems, near-death experiences, homeless, and unfortunately, more), using music to exorcise his demons, and transforming them into uplifting anthems. Music has the power to HEAL, which is not surprisingly, the title of his 2014 debut for Dead Oceans. Showalter brings his band back to Seattle for a 12:30 PM performance in the Gathering Space. Scroll down to see the complete schedule of performances, and watch the band perform on The Morning Show back in 2014 below:
