About Bitterroot


Bitterroot was formed in 2009 with original band members Colt Haney and Foster Haney. Getting their start in Portland and traveling back to The Valley of Peace in North Eastern Oregon to play gigs, sticking to their down home roots. Occasionally joined by friends Don Corey, Talen Couey, Jay Colton Hughes, Curt Perry, and Lauren Bihr, Bitterroot's shows always have new flavors. Their eclectic style will take you from high mountain peaks to lonely desert plains and back to the city streets. Incorporating styles such as folk rock, blues, funk, soul, bluegrass and roots, Peoples ears are always tingling and souls flaring, leaving all wanting more.

After releasing their self-entitled debut EP, the boys embarked on their first Pacific Northwest tour with another Portland musician and good friend, Kory Quinn, playing shows in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Bitterroot is now looking to take on the rest of the west coast, spreading their good-hearted and down to earth message of love, honesty, compassion and justice. Their music will bring your hearts and minds to the wide open spaces where their souls will forever roam. With their full album soon to be released this summer, their music will soon be spreading feverishly across borders.

About The Ruby Pines


"Consisting only of Michael Backus, Moorea Masa, and one lonely acoustic guitar, the Ruby Pines are a stripped-down sapling of a band-not to mention they've only been playing together for the better part of 2011. However, there is something hauntingly familiar and innate about the music this mostly local duo is making. Backus strums through blues riffs while Masa's thick and resounding voice stands intrepid at front and center, evoking Etta James, Mahalia Jackson, and other great vocalists who form our concepts of early R&B and gospel singing, and have been overthrowing our emotions for years. And with their scant collection of recordings-the Ruby Pines released a solid, self-titled EP in March-these live performances are to be cherished, with hopes that new material will be cropping up soon. " -- RAQUEL NASSER, Portland Mercury
