Upwell: To move or flow upward; to rise from an inner source.
Upwell’s record, “In Through the Outro,” was recorded by Jack Endino at Soundhouse Recording in Seattle and mixed and mastered by Martin Feveyear at Jupiter Studios in Seattle.
"What a blast it was to mix the new Upwell record. Artists so rarely take chances like these guys and a girl. It is one very bold statement of committed, complex, heavy as hell intense rock. Rhythmically, melodically, harmonically and emotionally deep, incredibly immediate and satisfying all at the same time… Self aware but not self conscious or precious, Upwell is a welcome breath of pummeling fresh, dirty air."
~ Martin Feveyear, mixing and mastering engineer
Jack Endino is no stranger to the band – Endino has recorded all of Upwell’s releases since their inception in 2000, and was Upwell’s fill-in bassist during periods when the band found themselves in between bass players.
“Upwell is one of the most terrifyingly great bands I have ever known out of Seattle; they are so good I had to join them as temp bassist, for an extended period, on three separate occasions, just because I believed in them so much that I didn’t want to see them lose any momentum… Upwell is a band that operates on a whole other level, way over most people’s heads. Their musicianship and songwriting is monstrous… They’re heavy like Soundgarden or Led Zeppelin with killer female vocals, but with their own unique style.”
