Portland based singer/songwriter Cassandra Lewis has a cosmic blend of classic country, Americana and psychedelic soul. She’ll call you into her journey of self discovery, addiction, love affairs, and a fever dream of in-betweens. “Think Dolly Parton, Etta James, and Jeff Buckley at Woodstock 69’, then sprinkle it with something otherworldly.”
Lo Steele is a Portland-born singer-songwriter, poet and actor. Known in her hometown as the daughter of Portland’s first lady of the blues—LaRhonda Steele—Lo has felt at home on the stage from a young age. Whether the medium is music, theatre or spoken word, Steele uses her platform to call attention to social issues.
After a few years of playing music together in Long Beach the couple decided they wanted more adventure in their lives. Andrea was working as a psychiatric music therapist, and Solange was a roller skating receptionist. They eventually decided to sell and give away 95% of their belongings and moved into a van. they traveled the country for two years playing music and making great friends along the way. During their years traveling the two fell in love with the Pacific North West and they are happy to call Portland home.
Christopher Worth grew up in the hip hop and r&b of the 90’s and you can feel these always in the backbeat of Pardon Me. The performances are also laced with the freedom and expressiveness of rock and roll: drums hit aggressively and are consistently placed hot in the mix. Rhythmic pockets stay deep, vital, and at times delve into a more roots or folk vibe. The instrumental tones themselves are luscious and expansive. Through the course of the record the band explores mellow acoustic valleys, groovy backroads, and electrifying peaks culminating in the anthemic “Fallen Leaves.“ It is the sweet spot between these genres and dynamics that defines Worth’s sound.
David Jacobs-Strain plays left coast blues for the indie rock generation; appearing solo, with his amplified string band The Crunk Mountain Boys, and with collaborators including Bob Beach (harmonica) and Joe Craven (the kitchen sink).
