About Falcon Heart

Indie Folk

Falcon Heart

Soaring, melodic harmonies, and captivating storytelling form the foundation of Falcon Heart's Folk inspired Indie/Rock sound. With influences ranging from Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes to Sublime and Elvis Presley, Falcon Heart expresses love, loss, and lessons learned from the evergreen city of Portland, Oregon.

Falcon Heart was conceived when a Craigslist ad brought musicians and Oregon natives Marcus Glaze and Aaron DeRosso together almost ten years ago. They have been refining their friendship, songwriting, and performance skills through various projects ever since, forming Falcon Heart in 2015 with the addition of bassist Robert Williams and electric violinist Jean Mastaler.

Glaze, a natural born performer, joins his instrumental, vocal, and songwriting talents with those of DeRosso, a meticulous and engaging long-time drummer, singer/songwriter, and recent guitarist. Williams embellishes upon Falcon Heart's melodies with his catchy and intricate bass lines, while Mastaler blends her classical sensibility with her fierce electric violin into the expressive, nuanced, and explosive sound that is Falcon Heart.

About The Old Yellers

Indie-Folk

The Old Yellers

The Old Yellers began in early 2001 when founding members Michael Berly and Matty V Hartless came together with the goal to write great songs built around vocal harmonies and well crafted stories. The idea was to write songs with a message that could be felt and understood by nearly anyone. They were soon joined by friends Diego Joyeux and Tim Connell and this core group has been playing together in one form or another ever since.

In the years that followed, albums were made, tours were undertaken, fun was had and many great musicians would take their turn coming in and adding to the overall magic. It is difficult to label them any one thing, because at times they have seemed more Rock and Roll, or Alt-Country, or Americana, or Folk Rock, but there is and always has been, a consistency, a uniqueness, something special, that has woven itself throughout the path they have traveled. Whether you call them The Old Yellers or The Yellers, they are are at heart, an American band, writing and performing their own original music, that above all, strives to evolve the consciousness of the global community and generate a real revolution of spirit.

The Bands powerhouse core has been blessed to surround themselves with a cast of stellar musicians who have, for nearly 15 years, formed the family band that is The Old Yellers. The band defies the limits of categorization into a single genre and can take a crowd on a seamless journey from raucous country honky tonk, to tender heartfelt ballads, past a potential Irish jig and back to the cornerstone of rock and roll all in the span of just a few songs. Yeller music is an eclectic blend of rollicking good time songs that win crowds over again and again.

About Billy D

Hip-shakin' blues

Billy D

A recent "Best New Act" winner, Billy Desmond (Billy D) melds blues, rock, and at times nuances of country to create an "Original Backbeat Roots" style of music that has fueled timeless rock icons like ZZ Top and The Rolling Stones. Billy was born on the south side of Chicago where he grew up surrounded by the Blues, and being a child of the early Rock 'n' Roll era, the two influences blended into a powerful potion. He started playing professionally at teen dances and parties at the age of fourteen. By the age of eighteen, he was sneaking into the blues clubs of Chicago to hear such greats as Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, and James Cotton. Over the next ten years, he would work as a guitarist for Junior Wells, Big Time Sarah, and Detroit Junior.

In the mid '70s, he formed his first band, Skid City Blues Band, which featured Billy as singer, guitarist, and songwriter. After fifteen years of touring the midwest, Billy moved to Los Angeles in 1988. He spent that year studying with Blues great Tony Matthews, guitarist for Little Richard and Ray Charles and spent half of the next year playing behind, Don "Sugar Cane" Harris, perhaps the world's greatest blues violinist. Los Angeles is where he truly started focusing on writing his own material.

In the mid '90s, Billy moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico and began playing his original songs at local clubs and concerts to great acclaim. Within the next year, Billy D and the Hoodoos had formed. In August of 2002, with the help of some of the best musicians in New Mexico, he released his first CD, Tales From Hollywood (Real and Imagined). In 2003, She's The One from his first release was voted the number one song by a regional artist, at KTAO,the world's largest solar powered radio station. KTAO hosted the Annual Solar Fest in New Mexico where Billy D and the HooDoos appeared that year, opening for Los Lonely Boys and Robert Cray.

After his second CD, Rokdablu!, and several more successful years in New Mexico, Billy left the Southwest for the Northwest, arriving in Oregon around Christmas 2009. He released his newest CD "Somethin's Wrong," which was embraced by the Portland music community and received outstanding reviews.

So long as this life keeps lifin'...I'll keep rockin' --Billy D.

"Ain't nothin' wrong with Somethin's Wrong...this fine collection alternates between soulful blues ballads ("Somethin's Wrong," "Blue," and "Love Makes You Cry") and gritty slide guitar rave-ups such as the Thorogoodesque "50," and the stomper, "Crazy Little Dancin' Queen." --P. Vaughn Shaver, The Oregon Music News

"Many of the songs draw upon that gut-bucket punch that makes your body want to groove ("Crazy Little Dancin' Queen," "Charlene"), ballads that can make you tear up, ("Blue," "Love Makes You Cry"), swampy-sounding slide ("50"), or numbers that could easily cross over and find favor between blues and rock genres ("Miss The Love," "Save My Life"). --Greg Johnson, president of the Cascade Blues Association in Blues Notes

"The blues are steeped in tradition and, in many cases, arbitrary song structure. Rarely do blues-types successfully deviate from the formula with original material. But Billy D (Billy Desmond) not only pulls it off, but may have unknowingly created his own genre." --Archer, Production DIrector, KINK.FM
