Ezza Rose – (Portland Oregon) Dream Rock
Since 2009, Ezza Rose has been cultivating a sound of her own. Drawing on several influences from the likes of Mazzy Star, 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.
Wave Action – (Astoria Or) Post-Punk Surf
Wave Action is a dynamic four piece of genre bending, post-punk/alt/surf rockers, cruising the faces of their radical sound waves right into your ears. Cowabunga.
Holiday Friends – (Astoria Or). – Indie Rock
Holiday Friends is an indie rock band from Astoria, OR. Founding members Scott Fagerland, Jon Fagerland, and Zack O’Connor formed the band while attending University in Moscow, Idaho. After a few years of experimentation, they solidified their lineup with Portland musician Joey Ficken (Sea Wolf, Swords, Broken Bells) The band recorded their official debut, “Major Magic” with Kevin Robinson (Viva Voce, Blue Giant) at Woodlawn Studios in Portland, OR. The album was released in 2014 to a sold-out crowd at Portland’s Mississippi Studios. Holiday Friends’ upbeat, danceable, synth-rock has landed them on Portland’s Alternative Radio 94.7 FM, OPB Music, and TV shows Shameless and MTV’s Awkward. Since then Holiday Friends has built their own studio in Astoria, OR where they continually record music in conjunction with L.A. based producer, and audio engineer, Chris Sorem (Avi Buffalo, Vulfpeck, Rufus Wainright). Their latest effort “Still Wonder” explores the notion desire and how it motivates everything that we do while also hindering our ability to ever feel content.
