"Pickwick brought the show to a new level with vim, vigor and a voice that sounds straight out of Motown’s heyday. To put it simply, singer Galen Disston’s got soul.

It’s pumping through his veins, beating through his bones, and pouring out of his mouth like a gift to ears everywhere.

Pickwick’s sound flows comfortably somewhere between indie-pop and straight soul music...The group as a whole is succinct, with its pieces—churchy organs, electric guitar, catchy percussion, active bass lines and back-up vocals—all working together like a finely tuned engine.

Listening to Pickwick is like a birth and a revival. It’s like being taken back in time while simultaneously feeling like you're exactly where you should be. The band has found its sound—not trying to fit in to one particular genre, but just playing what feels good to play and playing the hell out of it." ...Recent review from Natural Beardy

By late 2011 Seattle independent radio station KEXP caught wind of what the band was doing and began playing the band's music on-air. By the end of the year Pickwick's 7 inch series 'Myths' was voted the #9 record of the year by KEXP listeners alongside artists such as TV on the Radio, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Wilco, Adele and Radiohead.

The band is currently finishing up work on their debut LP and writing new material. Purchasing advance tickets highly recommended.

Performing with local favorite Aaron Mark Brown.
