Letters From Traffic is a Seven-Piece Seattle Rock and Soul Phenomenon featuring soul-sweetened vocals, fresh horns, hot guitars, kickass grooves, and life-shaking lyrics. Original songs layer trumpet, trombone, saxophone, vocal-harmony, lead & rhythm guitars, bass and drums. Contagiously moveable, inspiringly anthemic, or just dirty and fun, Letters From Traffic is always quality, always true.

Slowly steeping in the Seattle scene since 2006, Letters From Traffic has evolved a spirited New Vintage Soul sound supporting a deep commitment to authentic storytelling, connection and kick-ass performance. The band includes front man and progenitor, Scott Concinnity, on vocals and guitar; Dennis Hart on guitar; Chris Couvillion on trumpet & flugel horn; Alex Gee on slide trombone; Bradford King on tenor & alto sax and vocals; Matthew Miller on drums; and Jacob Doss on bass guitar and vocals.

Letters From Traffic on Band in Seattle from Victory Studios.


"Few albums created today have the power to move you, strengthen your spirit and free your imagination to the magnitude that this LP will. It is a rare creation, painstakingly sculpted to reach unlocked passions of the human conscious and paint them into the fabric of the listener's soul."


"The disc taken as a whole is amazingly thought provoking and musically intelligent. Individually, the tracks have their own stories to tell, each different in vibe, tempo, hook. Be sure to read the liner notes, the web site, and everything you can find that Scott Concinnity ever wrote. You’ll be smarter for it."

-Brown Bag Alley, Seattle WAVE Radio

"Icarus Iterations is a very non Seattle sounding record and Letters From Traffic is taking a bold venture, pushing forward the horn band sound beyond the typical rhythm and blues format."
