Heidi Matthews knows how to rock out—as you’ll agree if you ever caught her playing keys and singing background vocals with Seattle’s hard-rocking stalwarts, the Spinning Whips. Heidi will be the first to tell you that being on stage with the Whips is a fun and wild ride. But she has another side. A sucker for sultry jazz, Heidi got a notion to try a new gig, one where she would rock a cocktail dress instead of ripped jeans—as a smoky jazz chanteuse.
She knew she had to give it a try—so she teamed up with jazz guitarist and songwriter Glen VanDerPloeg in 2014. They quickly developed a strong musical empathy and a signature sound that is moody, spacious, and intricate. Listeners were surprised to learn they’d played together for months rather than years. Also surprising was how Glen, a Michigan native who had previously written songs only now and then, found his creativity sparked by Heidi’s deeply felt delivery of his complex, poetic lyrics. Diving deeper into his craft, he rolled out a string of new songs with various themes and styles reflecting the moods of life in the Pacific Northwest. At the same time, Heidi found her stride as a passionate jazz diva with a badass punk attitude.

Glen and Heidi soon filled out their sound with acoustic bass player Will Stump and drummer Wayne Porter. They hit Seattle clubs and coffeehouses with a name that reflects their moody, heartfelt vibe: Sing Low, Indigo. Before long, they had more than enough material for an album of mostly original, hard-to-categorize music— jazz mixed with Americana, Latin, indie-pop, and lounge. Their debut was released in 2017.

Though Heidi no longer rocks out with the Spinning Whips, she whispers, croons, and belts as lead singer with Sing Low Indigo. And you can’t go wrong with that.

Thanks to Ray and Sharon for providing a great place for so many talented artists to do their thing. The music is always top notch, the food is incredible (Scallops w/ Risotto is my favorite), and it's always a great time.

We went to see some live music. There's a pricey cover charge but the music was really good. The food was excellent. Delicious pork loin with cream sauce. Good portion size of antipasto. Wonderful cheeses and salami. Very delicious seafood pasta. The prices were reasonable. We picked a great Italian Amorone wine off the shelf. The corkage was pretty steep, 12.00 given we had appetizers, full dinner and 20.00 cover. But the wine was fantastic and a fair price. Lots of wines from most important wine regions. The shelves are full and the prices fair. We'd definitely return. Service was very good especially given it was a full house. Small venue, quaint and enjoyable.

Close, tightly packed room, but comfortable. Soft lighting, exceptional wine selection. The wonderful, smooth vocalizations of Gail Pettis backed by her talented quartet. Hot and delicious shrimp fettacini paired with a perfect chardonnay. Fantastic. A winner all the way.

Great spot, love the small plate options. Outdoor seating was a great option. My favorite this time was flatbread with goat cheese, figs and balsamic glaze. Yum

They helped make our 8th wedding anniversary so special. Amazing food, excellent cocktails, and such a fun and classy wine shop. I will be coming here more often, and hopefully have time to go see some of the live music soon.

I almost hate to post as this is small and exquisite and I really don't want to share! However, everyone should have this experience; toothsome menu choices just right sized for visiting and music listening. And live music! First time out post covid and I felt like I'd been nervous system detoxed; hallelujah for establishements that are here for us all in the transition time. Thank you to the owners and the musicians!! And saftey is top notch with vaccine proof required; another thank you!
