Berahmand
Berahmand
Berahmand, is a Portland based recording artist who is quickly gaining a reputation for his high energy live shows that blend Rock & Roll , New Wave, and Soul into a cleverly fused dance sound. As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, he purposefully self produced his debut album “Empress” on past production stylings involving dated digital devices, cassette tapes and plenty of classic analog flavor. Within moments listen, one can quickly identify an early Prince, David Bowie, Blondie , and the Rolling Stones to name a few. A one of a kind artist that aims to invite you in and move you; Berahmand and his band will definatly do just that!
Andrew Paul Woodworth
Andrew Paul Woodworth
Andrew Paul Woodworth's voice might perhaps be described as the love child of Michael Jackson, Eddie Vedder and Jeff Buckley: emotional and entranced by melody, but never soft or powerless. Eddy Ate Dynamite reveals Woodworth as a man addicted to harmony through and through.

It presents a kaleidoscope of different styles of playing within Pop and Songwriting. From light-on-its-feet and radio-worthy to introverted and melancholy and on to playfully complex harmony lines enhanced by suggestive horn arrangements, Woodworth pulls out all the stops time and again in order to find new approaches for his songs. Remarkably, a certain lightness weaves its way through all the tracks that enables listeners to lean back and enjoy.
Hawks And Doves
Gared O'Donnell laid waste for ten years with PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS. Alongside this monolithic band, he was sequestered in his down time, haha, working on new ideas. These ideas slowly took shape and became HAWKS AND DOVES. The first evidence was the closing track on the final PMFS album. A haunting, eerie heart stopper that the band demanded be fleshed out and added to the album. At points, H&D has been Gared alone, acoustic in hands, blue-eyed soul through a belt sander. Along the way, Gared has recorded in different parts of the country with various friends, people he had played with past and present. This record sets the tone, but I guarantee the upcoming album with drop you, roundhoused. The A-side is the full-band version of "Hush Money", which includes two PMFS alumni: Mongo on the drums and original bass player Aaron, pulled out of retirement. (An acoustic version of this song was included on the FREE compilation THE FEST 7.) The B-side is a haunting Bruce Springsteen cover, recorded in Gainesville with Matt Sweeting on bass (Assholeparade, Strikeforce Diablo), Chad Darby on guitar (Averkiou), and Danny Welsh on drums (Army of Ponch). The future? H&D is in the middle of recording an album. Gared has recruited George Rebelo (Hot Water Music) on drums and Chad Darby (Averkiou) on bass, guitar, and reverb. Special guests have contributed vocals, cello, and the like as well. You have been warned! --Var.
