Lindsie Feathers

Lindsie Feathers

Feathers' full length album, Neon Renaissance, is about love, the life journey, our planet and it's dwindling resources, liberating cultural belief systems, being true to the self, connecting to our ancestors, and honoring our heroes," Feathers says. "Spreading your wings and trusting in the flight.”

— Radio One, Chicago

After a series of open mic gigs, Feathers (with Ritt) played at House Of Blues Chicago.

"Big stage," she recalls. "I was hooked."

After a few years of recording demos with the likes of Chuck Gladfelter (Dovetail Joint/Ivory Wire), Joe Cassidy (Assassins/Butterfly Child), Preston Graves (Cupcakes) and Matt Walker (The Smashing Pumpkins/Morrissey), she was ready to take her creativity in another direction and moved to Portland, Oregon.

Her latest album Neon Renaissance was Engineered and Mixed by Adam Selzer at Type Foundary (Peter Buck, M. Ward) and Self-Produced by Lindsie Feathers.  The album is supported by Decemberists pedal steel player Paul Brainard, Fabulous Thunderbirds drummer Jimi Bott, slide player Bob Shoemaker, Jackstraw harmonica player David Lipkind, Fernando pianist Ralph Huntley, organist Mike Walker, and Belinda Underwood, Julia Schlippert and  Gayle Ritt on backing vocals.

In the words of the Neon Renaissance creed, written to define the album: "Let us follow our dream, teach the earth, serve humanity. We seek to love; not hate. To Heal; not hurt. Let love prevail."

Malachi Graham

Malachi Graham

The complicated heroine's / in short supply again.

Portland-based songwriter Malachi Graham writes lush, intimate Americana inspired by complicated women. It's no wonder- as the descendant of five generations of formidable, tale-telling Portland women stretching back to the Oregon Trail, Malachi learned early that great stories come from unreliable narrators and that the strongest characters are often the most flawed. Since she started writing songs five years ago, Malachi has drawn on history, poetry, and cinema in charater-rich narratives. Her sound has coalesced into something richer than the sum of its parts, her forceful and nuanced electric guitar and vocals working tightly together to tell strikingly sincere stories.

On her debut EP Selfish, recorded live to an 8-track at Mike Coykendall's Blue Room Studios and produced by Dustin Hamman (Run On Sentence), Malachi's character-driven songs come to life with percussion by Dan Galucki (Wooden Indian Burial Ground), bass by William Joersz (Nick Jaina, Ezza Rose), and slide guitar by Courtney von Drehle (3 Leg Torso). Selfish channels female voices that are- like the leading ladies of classic cinema- intoxicating, self-sabotaging, mesmerizing, and not preoccupied with being liked; the compulsive wiretapper, the jealous lover, the censored femme fatale, and the title track's confessional narcissist.

Capturing to tape in single takes, Malachi and this team of top-notch Portland players craft a punchy, electrified folk record led by her strong, unaffected voice, a sound that perfectly mirrors her honest and unapologetic heroines.

"Malachi Graham's roots in Oregon go all the way back to the folks who traveled the Oregon Trail, and her young, but wise voice sounds like it, steeped in the individualism that won the West but that also could make it, at times, a lonely place."
