Little Red Shed

Ezra Bell

Ezra Bell was founded around the irreverent and introspective songwriting of Benjamin Wuamett. Carving a wide path through the musical spectrum, Ezra Bell brushes up against folk, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and R&B.

Formed in Portland in late 2013, Ezra Bell was a changing cast of characters before settling into it's sound. Bassist Darren Moore, drummer Tom Trotter, horn player and arranger Aaron Mattison, and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Asay provide an often unsettling backdrop for the playful and sometimes vicious vocals of front man Benjamin Wuamett. According to the Willamette Weekly, "Ezra Bell flirts with a broader palette of country, jazz, rock ‘n' roll and swing, and does so admirably, with an outlaw's shamelessness."

Ezra Bell has released three EP's, Don't All Look Up at Once, 2013; We Came by Canoe, 2015; and Farewell Griffin, 2016. A full length debut is set to be released spring of 2018.

Melville

Future unknown, the model currently on display, Melville is the combined effort of a band in the making since 2011. That's when, newly returned stateside from a four year stint living in Berlin, songwriter and vocalist Ryan T. Jacobs first debuted Melville at Portland staple the LaurelThirst Pub. Since then, the band has performed many shows and had several highlights including having single Heart debuted at halftime of a sold out Portland Trailblazers game, playing at SXSW and sharing the stage with the likes of 3 Doors Down, Wilco side-project The Autumn Defense, Minor Alps, Murder by Death and Eric Earley (Blitzen Trapper) among others.

Founded on openness and a collaborative spirit, there's a tangible longevity to Melville that begs the band to explore and discover new layers to its sound.

Melville's introductory offering, Maquette, was recorded at Type Foundry Studios with Adam Selzer (M. Ward, Sallie Ford, Blind Pilot, The Decemberists, Peter Buck of R.E.M., She & Him) and mastered by Gus Elg at Sky Onion (Typhoon, Nurses, Horse Feathers, Blue Cranes), and has garnered radio play on Portland stations like KINK, KNRK and KZME. For now, Maquette is the base layer-but Melville will be charting a fresh course from here.

Melville are currently in the studio with Gregg Williams (The Dandy Warhols, Blitzen Trapper, Sheryl Crow, etc) working on the full-length follow-up to Maquette, entitled The New Zero.

McDougall

With his imagination often dwelling in the very real places of his past and present, as well as in the possible future, McDougall’s songs may very well seat you by a coffee-can fire in the middle of a dry California river-bed, pull you up onto a freight train in the lush spring-time of the Pacific northwest, raise your voice in hymns with the entire family on a Thanksgiving afternoon, or haste your good-bye to civilization as you know it, as you ramble on with all you possess on your back.

 

Fact, fiction, and a little in between, McDougall carries on the relevant tradition of oral history and folklore, making it a part of everyday life and sharing it with those around him. Inspired by the word of God, his family, friends, fellow workers and fellow travelers met along the way, McDougall wishes to keep to the unwritten rule of using what was left by those before while leaving something of your own for those who will come after.
