“It’s clear that Secretary understands a kind of mystery ad writes their music around it. It’s enticing.”
–KEXP Song of the Day
“Taking cues from the somber synth-pop of mid-’80s Fleetwood Mac and the Church, Secretary finds a cozy spot beside it-band of the moment Haim, taking chilly female vocals into dark, spacious terrain.”
–City Arts Magazine, Seattle

Secretary is comprised of members Craig Ellison Wolf (vocals, guitar, Rhodes), Em Maslich (bass/vocals), Max McSimov (guitar), and Luke Yanz (multi-instrumentalist).

Their smooth yet upbeat sound is sure to please whether you’re seeing them live or just tapping along at home.
Starting out as a duo, the band became a foursome in late 2013 after relocating to Seattle from Southern California in 2012. They are already gaining positive reviews from City Arts Magazine Seattle and many members of the blogosphere for their self-titled debut EP. The beautiful 3-song EP contains the premiere track “The Only Ones” as well as “Words” which was chosen as one of Seattle’s KEXP’s Song of the Day. The group is currently working on a debut full length album and plans to do an extensive tour to showcase their sound and broaden their audience.
