Jacob Miller
Jacob Miller
A Wisconsin native, Jacob Miller left his hometown for Portland, OR the summer of 2009 via Amtrak; bringing with him only a suitcase and a Fender Jaguar guitar. After just one year in the city - he left to travel North America to study and perform music while working on various farms and ranches between travels. Time spent as a farm hand in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina shaped his devotion to the finger picking style of the region. Playing along with old recordings and locals in the surrounding areas of Appalachia, Miller delved into the inner workings of the music’s style and history.

After 7+ years of managing/leading a 6-piece jazz band and traveling to perform both in North America and internationally - Miller now focuses his efforts on a different kind of songwriting; with a different story to tell.

With an affinity for minimalist pop and firm roots planted in American traditional music, Jacob Miller crafts a timeless sound unique to his style and abilities.

In 2019, Miller will release a debut album which displays his abilities as a performer, writer and composer. Recorded and performed by Miller in a SE Portland home-turned-studio - songs and ideas come together to assemble an atlbum about love, loss, and learning to begin again.
Lemolo
Lemolo
Lemolo is the dream pop brainchild of Seattle musician Meagan Grandall. The band has been named one of the Best Seattle Bands by Seattle Magazine, was voted Best New Band by City Arts Magazine, and was just named one of the Top Bands Rocking Seattle Music by Seattle Magazine. The highly anticipated sophomore Lemolo album, Red Right Return, is out now after a sold out album release show in Seattle.
Sheers
Sheers
Sheers’ music cuts in ways where expressive & ambitious pop vignettes become expansive songs.” (Impose Magazine) Melodicism and classical stylings converge in the brooding soundscapes of Portland’s experimental pop trio Sheers. Frontwoman and songwriter Lily Breshears grips tight the reins of her voice, bending the edges of melody to wrap unease in a veil of beauty. Breshears combines turn of millennium R&B with elements of French impressionism, an interplay of tension, texture and groove. Since jazz drummer Daniel Rossi and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Stern joined the project, Sheers has found a sound near triphop, but as Willamette Week writes, “it’s a real treat to hear a band that’s almost a genre unto themselves."
