Tyler Stenson – Celebrate the release of his new album NEW NORTHBOUND! Tyler is an award winning singer-songwriter from Portland, OR whose music is best described as Elegant Folk. Stenson was a Top 10 Finalist in Guitar Center’s “Songwriter Search”, twice-named “Songwriter of the Year” by Portland Songwriters Association, and “Best Male Artist” at the 2011 Portland Music Awards. Tyler’s lyric-first music is uniquely poignant and painted in the light of songwriter greats such as James Taylor, Cat Stevens and Ryan Adams.
Lance Kinnaird – Every so often there comes a voice that stops you in your tracks. Kinnaird has that kind of a voice. When asked about his new EP, Bright Nights, Kinnaird says it’s “meant to explore the ups and downs… the intense joy and despair of love”. There may not be a better way to describe his voice. Add Texas-blues guitarist and bandmate, Lauren Abraham, who’s colorful lead guitar plays off of Lance’s voice like they were made for each other, and you have yourself something special. Simply put… It’s Ray LaMontagne meets Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Northhead – Influenced strongly by Alt Rock bands like Radiohead, RHCP, The Raconteurs, with touches of Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, and Pearl Jam, NorthHead is a radio-friendly, straightforward Alt/Pop/Rock band…and not at all ashamed to admit it.
