Groovy Wallpaper is Skip vonKuske (Portland Cello Project, Vagabond Opera, Cellotronik) and Don Henson (Sneakin Out, The Adequates, The Druthers, Kathryn Claire). Skip is Portland's foremost cellist and Don is known for his Rube Goldberg-like percussion set up and performance. To call them a cello and percussion duo would fall far short of the mark.
Songwriters Carolyn Lochert and Janis Carper blend their talents to form a unique sound; swirling with rhythms and harmonies, sentiment and smiles, tight but spontaneous, each performance a musical adventure that reveals the bond of best friends. Whether they're belting out blues on a big concert stage or crooning in the corner of a cozy coffeehouse, these two seasoned musicians entertain with soul and style.
Heavily influenced by the likes of Etta James, Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, Aretha Franklin, Carolyn Lochert's career has taken her from singing lead in rock, country and funk bands to playing in the "horn" sections of jazz ensembles. Studying composition at OSU started her on the path to writing her own music. Her first album, She's Lookin' Back, features Lochert's smooth, sultry sound and some of Portand's and Wallowa County's finest musicians.
A winner in the 2015 Indie International Songwriting Contest, Janis Carper is a songwriter, singer, and guitarist who has nine recordings to her credit. Her soulful vocals, masterful guitar playing, and well-crafted songs have been heard at festivals, concert halls and radio programs nationwide. Her skills as accompanist, producer and teacher broaden the scope of her musical endeavors. When not collaborating with Lochert, Janis enjoys playing guitar-driven original Americana, rock & blues with her band The Alibis. She is also founder and director of the Wallowa Valley Music Alliance.
