Seattle is a West Cost seaport city known for being home of big coffee chains (Starbucks, Tully's Coffee, Seattle’s Best), big businesses (Amazon, Microsoft, Costco), grunge (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam) and rain. Although it’s known as the rain city, that doesn’t seem to drive people away. Seattle is the 20th most populated city in the US and according to last year’s census it’s the third fastest-growing city in the US (tied with Fort Worth, Texas).
Seattle’s is not only the home of grunge music, but it’s also the birthplace of many musicians such as Jimmi Hendrix, Kenny G, Macklemore and home avant-garde jazz musicians like Bill Frisell and Wayne Horvitz. Even the early careers of Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Bumps Blackwell, Ernestine Anderson started in this city.
