This past August, Cloud Cult took the stage at scenic Camp Long in West Seattle for the 15th annual Arts in Nature Festival, presented by Nature Consortium. Usually, the native Minnesotans are known for their dynamic live shows with a variety of electric and acoustic instruments, they decided to make this entire concert a special all-acoustic set featuring songs from throughout their entire discography. Fans crowded the room and surround the building, leaning into windows as the six performers brought many to tears and whoops of joy, and while Cloud Cult’s seventh member, painter Scott West, channeled all of that emotional energy into a beautiful avian composition onstage.
This beautiful painting, signed by all members of the band, is
currently up for auction! Proceeds from the auction will be split between listener (and musician!) powered KEXP and the Nature Consortium, a non-profit cultivating healthy forests and communities in Seattle. You can watch him paint the entire thing during this full concert video, filmed by KEXP, below. Then, don’t forget to bid. (Sorry, the auction is now over)
