One hundred percent of proceeds from sales will directly support KEXP, a Seattle-based nonprofit that enriches the lives of its listeners by championing music and discovery.

“When it’s time to go live, no one knows quite what to expect,” said Kevin Cole, KEXP program director and Afternoon Show host. “As listeners, we don’t wantperfection. We want energy and raw emotion. That creative tension and vulnerability is what makes a great live performance magical.” KEXP is internationally known for its live in-studio performances, airing as many as four in a single day. The tracks included on Live at KEXP Vol. 4 capture highlights from a year of live sessions, showcasing a range of known and unknown artists and a variety of genres.
