In the finale of Breaking Waves: Seattle, we look at the collapse of the scene in 1997, and how Seattle struggled to find a new musical identity. From the ashes of grunge, a new scene began to form, focused around emerging genres such as indie rock and electronic music.  We wrap up the series by looking at the legacy of grunge, and examine the bands that followed, and new artists who are taking Seattle in new musical directions. We’ll hear from Ben Gibbard, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Ayron Jones, Eva Walker, label executive Josh Rosenfeld, and many others as they describe how Seattle’s current wave of musicians have continued to build from the DIY foundation created by the pioneers of the ‘90s. The final episode of Breaking Waves: Seattle is both a portrait and a love letter to one of America’s most enduring music scenes. Breaking Waves was produced for Audacy by Osiris Media.

Episode 3: Overblown
3584
On episode three of Breaking Waves: Seattle, we continue the story with Seattle as a dominant force in pop culture. The “Big Four”—Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains—were the preeminent rock acts in the world, and Seattle’s influence could be felt everywhere, in movies, TV, radio and even fashion.  Everybody wanted a piece of the Emerald City, but was the scene ready for that kind of exposure? In this episode, we examine the shock of the grunge boom, the follow-ups to 1991’s groundbreaking releases, the struggles faced by the city’s new grunge celebrities, the loss of Seattle’s most iconic rock legend, and the eventual collapse of the scene due to the heavy weight of expectations and the demands of fame. Next on Breaking Waves: Seattle: The scene is dead, long live the scene. A proud new generation of Seattle music rises from the ashes of grunge.

Episode 2: Here We Are Now, Entertain Us
3549
Episode two of Breaking Waves: Seattle begins with the release of what Charles Cross has labeled “the purest statement” of the grunge movement—the seminal Temple of the Dog album, created in memory of the late Andrew Wood.  At the same time, Pearl Jam was formed, Nirvana was gathering strength and Soundgarden was refining their iconic metal-influenced sound. Then, in the Fall of ‘91, the Seattle scene produced three of the most influential rock albums of all time: Pearl Jam’s “Ten,” Soundgarden’s “Badmotorfinger,” and Nirvana’s “Nevermind.” Following this, there was no going back. Seattle had transformed itself from a small local scene into the center of the musical universe. Next on Breaking Waves: Seattle: after the scene rides the wave to the top, who will survive the crash that follows? Breaking Waves was produced for Audacy by Osiris Media.
