Austin Quattlebaum

Austin Quattlebaum

Austin Quattlebaum is no stranger to the stage. He's been performing solo all over the country since 2012. His childhood home of Savannah, GA shines through in the swampy tones and sleepy Southern lilt of his banjo and melodies. And in his titling, as well-it doesn't get much more Savannah than The Ghost Tangled in the Oaks, the name of his 2013 LP.

His solo performances blend gritty originals and tasteful covers; weaving 3 finger banjo, clawhammer and flat-picking guitar songs into his sets seamlessly. Sung with a bit of gravel in his throat, his tunes are sure to get the crowd's attention.

When Quattlebaum's adventures landed him in Portland nearly 3 years ago he quickly dove into the local music scene and founded the up and coming bluegrass band, Crow and the Canyon. (C.&.t.C. hit the Portland scene with a bang, achieving many accolades and notoriety in their short history.) In addition to Crow and the Canyon, Quattlebaum can also be seen with the 8 headed folk monster band from San Francisco, The Sam Chase and the Untraditional. Raising a ruckus at festivals like Outside Lands, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and High Sierra. Whether taking the stage with one of his projects or all on his own, Quattlebaum isn't shy and always brings a good time.

Brad Parsons

Brad Parsons

 

When Brad Parsons steps out on a stage, it's not long before he overpowers a roaring crowd. With little but his voice and an acoustic guitar, Parsons channels raucous energy into original songs that are as hopeful as they are heart-wrenching. Parsons is a Portland-based singer-songwriter with folk-rock roots extending to Idaho. After collaborating on albums with several bands in the Northwest, Parsons released his first solo EP in June 2012. The EP, "Anywhere the River Runs", showcases Parsons' vocal power, vivid lyricism, and infectious melodies. After picking up guitar and drums in his early teens, Parsons studied creative writing in college along with the songwriting of Jeff Tweedy, Townes Van Zandt and Neil Young. "I'm not an art house songwriter. I try to make my songs simple," Parsons says, citing influences from the early Beatles. "I try to write songs that are as real as possible, songs that people can understand." Parsons' discography includes The Bellboys' eponymous 2009 EP and their 2011 album, "I'll Be Here All Night". Parsons also wrote and performed with The Villains (now known as Rose City Thorns) on "Meat" in 2009. Parsons will also be featured on "Hole-Hearted Fools", a full-length southern rock album that is in production with Fruition String Band.
