Kory Quinn

Kory Quinn

Like the steady pendulum of a land oil rig, Americana songwriter Kory Quinn has tapped inspiration-and greater purpose-with his new EP, Black Gold Blues. Sharp and critical, Black Gold Blues swings between misery and pride of the working class. He explores the complex relationships inherent in the immorality of modern capitalism and the individual purpose found in the work. With uncanny awareness he understands the exact point where two disparate paradigms collide.


Black Gold Blues bobs between the melancholy and the irrepressibility of humanity in the face of widespread corruption and exploitation, and the greater implications of society's current reliance on oil and fossil fuels, corrupt political leaders, and fear. But even as it tackles such heaviness, it's music is boisterous and driving, a perfect rallying call for humanity from the heart of a working man

Lewi Longmire

Lewi Longmire

Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland's multi-instrumentalist "go to guy." In the years since relocating to Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he's been included on shows and recordings by many of the Northwest's finest bands and songwriters. He's played with national acts Michael Hurley, Victoria Williams, Dolorean, AgesandAges, Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, Blue Giant/Viva Voce/The Robinsons, Dolorean, the Minus 5, Breathe Owl Breathe and Tara Jane O'Neill as well as local luminaries Denver, The Portland Country Underground, Midlo/Pancake Breakfast, Quiet Life, Fernando, James Low, Perhapst, Electric Ill, Little Sue, Casey Neill, Michael Jodell, the Freak Mountain Ramblers, and is an anchor member of Portland's all-star tribute to the Allman Brothers, Brothers and Sister. 

Recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a roots rock/americana band of his own, singing his own compositions. This group owes much to the American tradition of good songs played with high energy, deep roots, and an unpretentious sense of fun. Their sound finds the connection between the basement feel of The Band, the raspy blue-eyed soul of Joe Cocker, the desert space of Giant Sand, the "without a net" deep space improvisations of the San Francisco ballrooms, the punk abandon of The Stooges and the quiet contemplation of Neil Young playing solo.
