“The sun parted the rainclouds, and with that the people who came through really dug it. That morning we played the KEXP radio broadcast, which is like going to a local mom-and-pop store—everyone knows each other, people are like family—but being on that main stage was different. Everyone in the band has to rely on themselves more and step forward, and I think we did that. It felt good.”
—Jimmy James of the True Loves. The homegrown, nine-piece, true-school soul band played twice at Upstream Music Fest, which took over Pioneer Square in early June.
