Rubella Graves is an American rock band from Vancouver, Washington. Formed in 2006 to feature the songwriting of multi-instrumentalists David Redden and Jack Weitz, who explore genres of alternative country and American folk. Band includes Jason LeMaster (vocals), Mark Dybvig (guitar), David Monnig (keyboard), Ryan Murphey (bass), and Eric Stanley (drums).
Catch this clip of Rubella Graves playing at the White Eagle:
Amazing new CD that contains shining elements of The Byrds (jangly
12-string guitars and a trumpet solo a la "So You Want To Re A Rock &
Roll Star"), Tom Petty, Neil Young (the guitar solos), and the Allman
Brothers (nice mix of Hammond and dual guitars) sprinkled tastefully
throughout! When you think about The Lonesomes, there's the feeling of the old
West, not just in the band's name but in their sound and feel - something that
put you in mind of tan chinos, shoe boots with spurs, shots of rye at the local
saloon, and lots of dirt. It has the necessary punk-slash-honky-tonk charm to
qualify as an alt-country gem. And, despite all of the classic influences on
display, they still manage to make music that sounds remarkably fresh. The 12
songs on There's No Denying Josephine represent all of their best elements -
the songs keep you guessing what might come next, each one with its own little
angle on the whole picture the band is presenting."
--Ray Gianchetti, Kool Kat
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.
