Manatee Commune


Manatee Commune (aka Grant Eadie) has made quite a name for himself in dance music since his debut 3 short years ago. A native of the Pacific NW, this electronic based, classically trained multi-instrumentalist has ignited a wave of fans since his nationally aired interview on NPR’s Morning Edition and being named “best electronic artist” by Seattle Weekly.

Over the past years, he’s performed at SXSW, Bonnaroo, What The Festival, Decibel, Bumbershoot and Capitol Hill Block Party as well as toured with Odezsa, Slow Magic, Emancipator and Blockhead.
