Halloween Extravaganza: David Jacobs-Strain and the Crunk Mountain Boys
BAND WEBSITE - WATCH VIDEOS David Jacobs-Strain is a fierce slide guitar player, and a song poet from Oregon.  He’s known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon; his live show moves from humorous, subversive blues, to delicate balladry, and then swings back to swampy rock and roll.  It’s a range that ties Jacobs-Strain to his own generation and to Continue Reading
Jonathan Warren and the Billie Goats
Between the delicate blades of grass, moist with the anticipation of the morning’s dew, tread the thoughtless hooves of an angry old goat weary from the night’s toils.  The goat had wandered through a briar patch, searching for the juicy berries his friend, the farmers cat, had told him of.  The goat did not find any such berries, only pain and entanglement from Continue Reading

Their decades of Continue Reading

The Weather Machine
BAND WEBSITE - VIDEOS The Portland Mercury compares The Weather Machine to The Kinks and Paul McCartney, while an Italian publication preferred Hey Marseilles as a reference. The truth?

Hillstomp!
Portland Oregon junkbox blues duo HILLSTOMP is infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp.
