The sound of Portland's band Shoring is like an authentic boulevardier with a generous pour of aged Americana. All of Shoring's arrows are pointed at classy, pure, and original independent music. From Kostenborder's emotive playing on his vintage Ludwig kit to Bergstrom's brassy and immediately relatable vocals, listeners find a place to settle and free themselves of the immediacy of a hectic life.
From early on, the band formed around a common gravity toward artists like Dylan, Springsteen, and The Doors. Along with Knopfler-esque lead guitar, vintage keys, and delay drenched guitars, Shoring soaks the listener in warm sunlight and analog artistry.
As the industry continues to be saturated with fame-seekers and cookie cutter hit-makers, Shoring's focus is to simply stand alongside anyone willing to lean in and listen.
When not recording and performing melodic, jangling rock with his band The Parson Red Heads, Evan Way has spent the past 10 years building a catalog of slow-burning folk songs that he performs under his own name. Earnest and melancholy, in the vein of classic songwriters such as Nick Drake, Damien Jurado, and Richard Buckner, his lyrics paint simple pictures of hope & hopelessness, love & loss, joy & pain. Songs about growing up and living life.
