Year of the Manatee: What the Pacific Northwest Sounds Like (Exclusive Interview)

manatee commune exclusive interview local spotlight

If you Google the phrase “Manatee Commune,” you will not find pictures of manatees huddled together on the beach or floating in a pod off  the Florida coast.  Instead, you’ll find Grant Eadie, a red-headed kid from Bellingham, Washington.  What you can’t see in those pictures is his incredible talent to play nearly ten instruments– including the piano, viola, banjo, mandolin, and drums — or see his live show and watch him jump three feet in the air with exuberance and grace, rousing the crowd with positive energy.

We had the opportunity to interview Manatee Commune before opening for Slow Magic at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland. We chatted about the growing success of his music project and life as an artisan ice cream shop employee by day and a musician by night in the Pacific Northwest.
