Brief:

Slashed Tires is the ongoing musical endeavor of Seattle-based producer Kenneth M. Piekarski. After playing the trumpet for most of their time in public school, Piekarski discontinued performing music after graduating high school until years later when they adopted the alias of Slashed Tires and began experimenting with home recording. Through the influences of dance, funk, post-punk, and jazz, they’ve produced five EP’s, and a modest collection of unreleased and oddball recordings. More than enough they have been compared to music that they've never listened to or have heard anything about.

Slashed Tires live performances are split between from being unpredictable solo arrangements to full-on joyous groove experiences. Primary Slashed Tires band consists of Heatwarmer’s Aaron Otheim and Luke Bergman, while secondary Slashed Tires band consists of Dude York’s Claire England, Andrew Hall, and Peter Richards
