SEED LING in an Indie Rock band with dark and dreamy vibes.

The band was originally formed in San Francisco in 2016 by singer and songwriter Rachel Shahvar, who eventually moved to Bend, OR. In 2018 she took some time off to find the right combination of talent to bring SEED LING to life.

Lindsey Elias is a local drumming legend and sings alongside Rachel to create haunting and enchanting female harmonies.

Charan Mellor plays the bass and cites Justin Chancellor as a key influence to his mesmerizing basslines that drive SEED LING’s dark and melodic sound.
