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.

Crow and the Canyon

Crow and the Canyon

"The joy with which the band plays is palpable, both live and on record, and one only needs to take a gander at the miles-wide smiles of both the group on stage and the audience to know this music is affecting people on a very real level." - Donovan Farley, Jambase

Although the band has only been playing together since 2014, Crow and the Canyon sound like a band of age-old collaborators and friends. Their heartfelt yet cerebral lyrics, soaring vocals, and impressive instrumentals are endlessly listenable, while also remaining inventive and interesting. Their debut album, Leaving Soon, is a refreshingly contemplative take on high-spirited Americana songwriting which rewards repeated listening, and weaves back and forth between precise bluegrass, heartland acoustic folk, and bluesy country. The result is a series of songs that sound just as natural on a front porch in the heat of summer, in a dimly lit basement pub in the dead of winter or rollicking on a big festival stage. Their charismatic, engaging performances have garnered them a beloved reputation that keeps music lovers returning time and time again.
