Ashleigh Flynn

A Million Stars, Ashleigh Flynn's most recent studio effort on her own Home Perm Records, is produced by Chris Funk, her longtime friend and musical collaborator, best known as the Decemberists' multi-instrumentalist. The record features Todd Snider and many of Portland's most talented musicians.

The album's twelve tracks represent true blue Americana featuring a bit of folk, blues, country and rock. The title cut, "A Million Stars", chronicles the story of Cattle Annie and Little Britches, two cowgirls who rode the outlaw trails in the late 1800s, disguised as men, so as to gain entrée onto the frontier, a place not seen fit for a woman. "See That Light", a seemingly fun little blues ditty but with a strong message, features Todd Snider, Flynn's musical mentor, who plays the voice of reason and, in his sermon to those who might judge certain types of love unlike their own, warns of the resulting harm.

Flynn has performed at many a music festival including Bonnaroo, Bumbershoot, High Sierra, Sisters Folk, Vancouver Folk, and next up DelFest. She has also traveled the globe, peddling her wares, warming tours for Todd Snider, the Wood Brothers, Nanci Griffith, and more; as well performing on many national & internationally syndicated radio programs that celebrate Americana music, including Mountain Stage, WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, and NPR.


Susie Blue

Blue is a singer-songwriter based in Portland, who, after many tries as a lead singer in several bands, sought out a career as a solo artist playing melancholy emo-pop music. Her songs blend her distinctive voice with whispery keyboards and ethereal guitars. "A fully formed artistic voice... 'Sink' adorns Blue's affectingly melodic compositions with whispery keyboards, shimmering guitars and solid rhythmic support." - Willamette Week "What I find in Susie Blue are the qualities I enjoyed when I first discovered Christine McVey: songwriting, vocal delivery, and the ability to carry me to another place." - Kevin Sutter, Tazmoe Music
