About Butterfly Breakdown
Butterfly Breakdown was recently voted the #1 Indie Rock-Blues Band in Portland by Reverb Nation. Anastasia Gilliam and Zay Harrison teamed up in 2011 and started writing and composing, infusing their own unique sounds into the heartfelt, soulful sound of Butterfly Breakdown.
They have a natural ability for storytelling and strike a sophisticated balance in their craft as song-smiths with intellect and whimsy through songs that speak of their experience. In addition to composing and performing together, this dynamic duo recently spread their wings by adding two new members into the fold.
Brendon Carlson (Guitarist, Songwriter) and Alex Tripp (Guitarist, Pianist, Singer, Songwriter). This has expanded the overall sound and sonic depths of the vocals and instrumentation and taken this group to a whole new level. They have the flexibility to book as an acoustic duo, trio or quartet.
Butterfly Breakdown cultivates a lucious sound of opulent vocal harmonies layered with acoustic and electric guitars and hand-perussion that fills a stage with a compelling presence.
They have woven their influences together ranging from Blues artists Albert King to Bonnie Raitt with Rock inspirations from the likes of Led Zepplin, Heart and Pearl Jam mixed with a soulful flair from singers like Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Adele.
Their shows are primarily made up of original music but if the need arises or the venue requests, they have a vast repretoire of cover tunes from Country, R&B, Pop, Rock and Blues.
