About Stars of Cascadia

Stars of Cascadia

Stars of Cascadia is an alt-country band from Portland. Their debut album Riverside Skyline is straight out of Laurel Canyon and Bakersfield, bursting with melodic hooks and compelling harmonies while exploring themes of reminscence and loss, small town struggles, and the duality of seasons. The group is led by singer/guitarists Scott Jeffries and Ray Yurkewycz, who began exploring their country sound as members of Spirit Lake. Where that band colored Scott's songs with their typical psychedelic bombast, Stars of Cascadia fully embraces those Americana stylings, joining latter-day revivalists such as Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, and Sturgill Simpson as spiritual heirs to Gram Parsons, the Byrds, and Neil Young.
