Best Female Vocalist 

Chayla Hope

Formed in 2012, Seafair expanded to a four-piece when singer-keyboardist Chayla Hope and guitarist Joshua Riehl recruited drummer Ryan Kelly and cellist Tara Hanish, both of whom had played in the terrific local act Unsparing Sea. The group then became even bigger when it added guitarist Mike Flaherty and violinist Andrea Belding to the fold. Together, the six create lush soundscapes that have drawn comparisons to Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene. As it's put in the band's bio, Hope's "powerful voice, presence and words" give the band's live show its gravitas.
