7/11 The Round (218) featuring musicians


Brittany Danielle,

Rosanne Olson,

+ spoken word poet Alex Rasmussen

& live painter Julian Peña


"Pointedly critical yet hopeful, Beasley writes #SelfHelpFolkMusic that offers a strong melody, a biting criticism, and a chorus you'll find yourself humming which calls the listener to live more honestly hopeful."

"What happens when you pull a thread? Those who’ve sought the answer know the glee of the seam ripping open, the stuffing falling out and then the surprise of that which is broken now resting at your feet. What if this moment had a soundtrack? A melody like that string, rhythms like cloth and cotton. And a demise as obvious as that of a broken relationship or belief system. This is the music Seattle-based songwriter and performer, Brittany Danielle brings to the world.

With songs that sound like Top 40 hits but read like tarot cards, Danielle, who has been playing piano since 8-years-old and boasts a graduate degree in music, creates compositions that touch opposite sides of the spectrum. On Danielle’s debut LP, which she will unveil in 2022, many of the tracks were born from the pandemic and the song exercises that kept her sane throughout. Woven together with truths about her mental health (and its own unraveling), the songs represent growth, new connections."

"Rosanne Olson writes songs drawn from her life and inspired by the lives of others. Her songs speak of love, heartbreak, happiness and regret, all formed into beautiful stories that linger in the mind, providing just the right medicine for love, loss and everything in-between.

Steeped in the music of the Sixties, Olson draws her own musical conclusions from influences that span classical music (from childhood piano lessons) to folk ballads, a touch of country, a splash of jazz and a bit of gypsy."

- Artist Bio


"From the Pacific Northwest to New Orleans—Tennessee to the Texas hill country—singer-songwriter, novelist, and poet Alex Rasmussen has spent much of the last decade traveling the United States and sharing his art, inspired by the adventures and heartaches of a nomadic spirit.

His self-published novel, Coloring outside the Lines (2015), dives into the mind of an ambitious street musician as he travels between Seattle and San Francisco in pursuit of a dream…and enough cash to buy his next meal. Alex’s poetry collection, Inside out, also self-published (2019), covers a wide range of topics from love to loneliness, eccentric painters to hollow consumers. Each work is a piece of a puzzle, which, once assembled, shows in vivid detail a life shaped by the journey from turbulent childhood to traveling artist.

After spending fall and winter of ‘20 / ‘21 playing music and selling his books around San Diego, the Seattle native has returned home for ‘22 and ‘23, where he is finishing his second novel, writing poetry, performing, and working on new songs. "

Julian Peña:

"Julian Peña (°1985, Okinawa, Japan) lives and works in Seattle, WA and a two-time recipient of South Sound Magazine’s Best Artist of the Year. He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions including “Fool’s Paradise" solo art show at Ok Hotel & Gallery in Seattle, WA and “Strength + Struggle” group art show at the Tacoma Art Museum in Tacoma, WA. One of his most memorable and pivotal career milestone was at “Dawn of 2012” group show at Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma, WA. Recently, he joined other talented, LGBTQA+ artists at the Skyview Observatory for the group show "Look How Far We've Come: A Queer Art Show 902 Feet in the Air." He studied for his Bachelor of Art in Painting and Drawing at the University of Washington and took an intensive course in Nihonga (traditional Japanese mineral pigment painting) course with Judith Kruger in Savannah, GA.

Peña is strongly influenced by Japanese graphic design and art. He explores many different decorative techniques and rich materials to create lavishly flat surfaces with bright and bold colors oscillating across the surfaces of his works. He often draws from anime content, manga, fantasy narratives, video game aesthetic culture, and Japanese art history as his source of inspiration. He aims to create fantastical narratives we can all relate to using color harmony, memorable characters, and decorative surface textures."
