    Seattle-based hard rock/punk/soul quintet Karmic Unrest is the brainchild of bassist/composer Shane Smith. Emerging from the remnants of the grunge era, Smith's lyrical, melodic blend of heavy grooves and progressive riffs is animated by a roster of accomplished musicians; guitarist/vocalist RL Heyer (Cracker Factory, Your Sweet Action), vocalist/frontwoman Ayesha "Musicbox" Brooks (The Voice, Musicbox Project), guitarist Tony Stevens (The Double Cross Committee, Uncle Pooch) and drummer Drew Locke (Urban Achievers).

    Karmic Unrest released their debut recording The Ambivalence of the Sacred in the spring of 2017 on indie label The IBCT. The EP consists of five tracks of unapologetic heavy rock with catchy melodies, quick-fingered guitar solos and lyrics describing the effects of classism, greed, karma, and rebirth. The Ambivalence of the Sacred also features a blazing saxophone solo by Skerik (Les Claypool's Frog Brigade, Skerik's Bandalabra) and the gritty vocals of Matt Bentley (Devils Hunt Me Down), expanding the Karmic Unrest roster on two tracks.
