Ezza Rose
Ezza Rose
Since 2009, Ezza Rose has been cultivating a sound of her own. Drawing on several influences from the likes of Etta James, Stevie Nicks, and her residency in Portland, Ezza writes and performs music which reflects the listeners’ lives back at them while hinting at a new perspective. The fluidity of love, the ebb and flow of relationships, and getting caught in the machine of expectations and technology, all are deconstructed with flowy rhythm, aggressive electric guitars, and dreamy vocal melodies.
Genders
Genders
The members of Portland’s Genders had already closed the book on their previous band by the time they received the news that it had been voted one of the city’s best new acts. Seemingly, this was just the motivation they needed to accelerate through the tiresome early stages of establishing their new project.

Now - four years and countless road hours later, including a full national tour opening for Built To Spill - the gang of four is preparing for their sixth release with the kind of confidence that can only be gained from experience. Phone Home features five new reverb-drenched rockers that take a slightly different approach than the band’s previous adventures with dream pop; the new bunch sounding more like a nightmare than any kind of dream.

The first glimpse of this is the sarcastically titled Life Is But A Dream, in which singer/guitarist Maggie Morris addresses a recent heartbreak through gritted teeth as she tunefully laments over dreamy guitars and a relaxed yet compelling groove.
Prolly Knot
Prolly Knot
Portland based, R&B/ Pop artist Prolly Knot (the project of previously Nashville based singer-songwriter, Sam Pinkerton) is set to release her debut EP, It’s Not Anymore this Fall. Moving from hip/hop inspired heartbreak to care-free pop music, the project marries eccentricity and depth, and has garnered Pinkerton comparisons to contemporaries Maggie Rogers, Syd, Banks and more.

It’s Not Anymore came about after a 3 year hiatus and a move across the country. Needing something mindless and fun, Pinkerton developed a collection of songs that still stays true to her at the core but gave her something she could dance to. Prolly Knot pulled her out of her musical rut and guided her to new creativity and inspiration.

From acoustic guitar to synthesizer, Pinkerton writes timeless singer-songwriter tracks paired with catchy pop hooks. The tracks on It’s Not Anymore addresses heavy life topics that most of us deal with- depression, coming of age, secrets, finding your identity, young relationships and more. Pinkerton’s mature lyrics and melodic tale-telling tracks are standouts due to her angelic yet weighty voice. Pinkerton’s inspiration comes from distinct voices such as The Band, Gregory Alan Isakov, Frank Ocean, D’Angelo and more. Prolly Knot is a new project that feels familiar- warm music from a welcomed new voice.
