About Redwood Son + Tim Snider
Whether or not the name and music of Redwood Son has yet hit the big radar, this year's "Best New Artist" of the Portland Music Awards is on the rise. Their 20 Song double-disc debut, The Lion's Inside, boasts a dynamic versatility that crosses the borders of their West Coast Americana with hook-laden roots-rock and alt.country, while maintaining an authentic Universal "Pop" vibe.
Led by singer-songwriter Josh Malm, Redwood Son's long anticipated release of The Lion's Inside signifies a culmination of Malm's tireless persistence as a performer and live music presenter throughout the Pacific Northwest since 2005. Though making an initial mark under his previous moniker J*Malem, he birthed the concept of Redwood Son in 2009 searching for an honest sound representative of his childhood in the California Redwoods. The first incarnation of the band was making way towards this very album while establishing a local presence when an unexpected catastrophe struck. On November 4th, 2009 Redwood Son's original drummer and Malm's long-time friend Kipp Crawford was killed in a tragic event that remains partly unsolved. Though Redwood Son experienced a state of dismantle with uncertain destiny, Malm did not lose sight of their shared vision alongside the standing support of the group's original guitarist Chance Hayden. The project was resurrected in the spring of 2010 to nobly move forward, recording The Lion's Inside in Crawford's honor along with an unreleased dedication track titled "Because of You".
The rawness of Redwood Son's beginning is nostalgically captured on Disc One: Summer of '77, focused on the band's sound as a unit along with guest instrumentalists who compliment Malm's friendly lead vocals. Known for bringing the right guys together, trusty engineer Rob Stroup fostered Malm's connection to the authentic sounds of roots-rock and alt. country. The disc was then mixed with a warm analog approach by Rian Lewis, bringing the presence of a laid-back summer day to the ears. Less than a mile away, Disc Two: New Beautiful Day was recorded and produced simultaneously by Dean Kattari to beckon the band's mainstream viability. Here the band's core shows an even greater expansiveness shouldering a more lyrically focused sound, with guest vocals on nine of the ten tracks from singers including Gretchen Mitchell and Ray Frazier. Though the two discs stand tall individually, together they represent a full circle of Malm's musical journey thus far. His thoughfully told stories are the focal point throughout, binding his many musical influences into Redwood Son's distinctive brand of West Coast Americana.

About Guy Dilly & The Powers
In any given setting, a striking performance can expected from singer-songwriter Jordan Harris who's on his way to achieving a reputation as a first class musician. Showing strong self-motivation to effectively build his name, Harris, or otherwise known as Guy Dilly, breezed into Portland as a breath of fresh air freed from his small town youth. His dedication to the pop-rock sound began at age ten with the drums when the guitar and his voice soon followed and have continued to push him forward. Since first writing and recording his own songs in his late teens, he's embarked on a journey that's certain to present a wide range of opportunities.
As a charismatic performer he's gathered a noble following both on his own and as lead singer for The Gentleman's Club, one of Portland's premier cover bands. Harris has received nominations as "Best Male Artist" of the Portland Music Awards, "Best Emerging Artist" of Deli Music Magazine and was selected for televised performances on ABC's "AM Northwest" and "America's Got Talent" filmed before a sold-out Paramount Theater in Seattle. Currently in production with award winning songwriter Josh Schroeder is Harris' debut EP, Young, chalked for a September 2011 release with a sixteen city west coast tour.Map & Directions
