Artiste 5: Music & Greasy Spoons from the lovable Ephrata

Artiste 5: Music & Greasy Spoons from the lovable Ephrata

I am unabashedly a fan of Seattle’s choral-pop quartet, Ephrata. Their music stirs every bone in the body and makes the mind wander to distant places. It is euphoric. It is stunning. It is fun.
