a seamless connection

A 1995 Bellingham Mayor's Arts Award (sponsored by the Bellingham Municipal Arts Commission) was received by producer Wade Larsen for the a seamless connection album. The annual award ceremony recognized Larsen's considerable efforts which brought together the talents of over 60 songwriters, musicians, artists and support personnel to create a powerful and inspiring production of contemporary Northwest music.

a seamless connection was a special regional songwriters product which still gives inspiring insights to the rich veins of talent the Pacific Northwest has to offer. A wide variety of styles, including folk, pop, rock, reggae, blues and country provide an hour of quality entertainment bound together thematically with lyrics of personal healing and change.

The 12-song compilation features nationally known folk-musician Linda Allen, Trinidad-born reggae-calypso artist Andy O, Northwest Blueswoman Laurette Langille, and the politically outspoken singer Tim McHugh (and the Lost Poets). Other talented artists such as J. P. Falcon Grady and Carolyn Nelson are presented beside seasoned Northwest favorites including rocker Steve Webb, pianist-composer Karen FitzGerald, singer-guitarist Rick Allen and the heart-felt country music of Gregory T. Pitsch, Jr. The acoustic-psychedelia-hybrid group Clay People and executive producer Wade Larsen's contribution, Enchanted Land, complete the varied collection.

a seamless connection CD includes an attractive 16-page booklet which includes songwriter photos with liner notes and complete song lyrics. The full-color cover art is from Northwest artist Rebecca Meloy's triptych, Earth-Air-Water ( 1988 Rebecca Meloy).
