A rare, triple-threat singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, Alex Ashley creates an electrifying amalgam of insightful lyrics, profound storytelling, sultry, smoky vocals and razor-sharp guitar playing that bring his songs to life with nostalgic effervescence. Compared to the likes of "a young Vince Gill," John Mayer and Eric Clapton, he crosses the boundaries of folk, blues and Americana music with new and original songwriting."

Faustina Masigat (Portland, OR)
"There is a quiet intensity running through the world that Faustina Masigat creates: sweet and heavy, a touch of angst, brutally honest, smoldering. Frustrated by academia and emotionally raw from a breakup, Faustina stepped away from her peers in her mid-twenties. Seeking honesty over perfection, her approach to composition became much more intuitive; a means of self improvement through self reflection and seated in the natural expression of her own emotional life. Her songwriting is all at once heartbreaking, intelligent, meditative and elegant - centered around a voice that is difficult to attach genre to. Her self-titled debut will be released on January 26th, 2018 via Mama Bird Recording Co."
"Lindsay Clark finds balance between traditional folk, english folk, country, and her own version of experimental folk that seems to stem from her soul. Exquisite and pitch perfect, her music speaks of quiet revelation. With influences ranging from the Elizabeth Cotton, Joni Mitchell, appalachian folk, classical music, and her father's record collection, she blends many worlds into a uniquely warm sound. Her sound has been described as 'folk with angelic vocals washing over smooth edges' (1859 Magazine). Her forthcoming record "Crystalline" was engineered/co-produced this year with San Francisco’s Jeremy Harris (guitar/vocals - Vetiver), with plans to be released in mid- 2018."

“Petunia & The Vipers are one of these creative generators and innovators, and their music and moxy can be found defining the cutting edge of what is considered creative in country and roots today, while still keeping alive what made country music great in the past.”
“…Hybrid musical style…edge of punk appreciation…this is an amazing album…a whole range of different styles” -Bob Harris, BBC
“REAL UNDERGROUND MUSIC. Foot-tapping country & western laced with rock and jazz.”-The New York Post
“That’s not a band. It’s another world.” -Jonathan Byrd, artist
“Petunia and the Vipers glide effortlessly between every Country niche with the greatest of ease…”
The “Bruce Lee” of guitar, the Scott Pemberton Band is a jamming, funk, rock, psychadellic journey through music; an unforgettable event.
Many master guitarists find their homes within a specific genre, perfecting the ins and outs of their chosen musical realm until their names become synonymous with the very art form.
Portland's Scott Pemberton is not your average guitarist. He's a musical nomad. His home isn't in one comfortable bubble, but rather spread across genres. One moment, he's shredding through the blues. Then next, he's living in a classic rock world, or drifting melodically through an ethereal psychedelic plane. Maybe he's leading a dirty funk jam, or experimenting with something heavier, or sitting back on a jazz odyssey. Regardless of genre, though, Pemberton's musical journey is marked by two unmistakeable realities: You always know when you're hearing a Scott Pemberton song. And you're always going to be captivated.
Their joyous modern folk sounds will have your boots stomping, hands clapping, and you'll be hooting and hollerin' in your costume.
