Chicago born, Oregon-based MOsley WOtta is a critically acclaimed hip hop artist/performer and painter, recognized for his provocative and encoded word play. He is currently an Art Ambassador for R.U. International in association with the U.S. Embassy. His work has been show cased on TEDX, Women's Muse Conference, PBS. He has just completed his fourth EP "Markets Flooded" with electronic music Producer Collothen. The full length album slated to be release in 2016.
Cedar Teeth hails from the Cascade foothills, where the sound of saws cut through the Oregon woods and the lights of Portland set the western horizon aglow. The music of Cedar Teeth is shaped by the experience of living in this margin dividing the wilderness from the city. From the five members of the band emerges a fusion of guitars, banjo, keys and trombone, propelled by bass and drums, while vocal harmonies weave through the music. Their songs are thus sweeping and immersive, at turns rustically melodic, lyrically raw, and aggressive, as they explore the tensions of our time: love, loss, and destruction in a morally ambivalent landscape.
Over the past five years, Cedar Teeth has steadily crafted a distinct sound and set out to bring together audiences and fellow musicians from Portland to Seattle. Starting off 2015 with a series of shows in Park City, Utah during Sundance Film Festival, Cedar Teeth has gone on to perform at major venues throughout the Pacific Northwest, like Seattle's Tractor Tavern, as well as festival sets at Cascadia Rainingman and Summer Meltdown, alongside bands like Greensky Bluegrass and Fruition. Songs from their debut album, Hoot, have since been licensed for television programming on PBS and film soundtracks in America and Europe. Heading into 2016, Cedar Teeth will soon return to the studio and record their sophomore album before hitting the road, to bring their brand of NW roots rock to audiences far beyond the Cascade foothills from where their music is born.
