Shakey Graves: 
The Perfect Parts

“What I’m trying to do is about storytelling, I’m not really trying to play folk music or blues or one-man-band stuff. There’s a long tradition of people I respect from poets to loud rockers, whatever — it’s about the human struggle. And I know that sounds cheesy, but I feel that with the live shows I put on, I really come to perform in front of people.”

Mandolin Orange: 
There Was A Time


“Mandolin Orange has been quietly gathering local and faraway fans since its debut album was released back in 2010. The North Carolina duo’s music — laced with bluegrass, country and folk — is often wistful and contemplative without being somber, and always firmly grounded in the South.”

Old Light: 
All Over

Led by former San Francisco cabbie and current Portland resident Garth Klippart, Old Light began when Garth (singer and autoharp) bought an old autoharp from an antique instrument guru and recorded it over and over, layering the tracks. The result is like nothing else that has come out of the Pacific Northwest.
