Crystal Lariza and Corner

Crystal Lariza and Corner

Portland native and songwriter, Crystal Lariza has been intriguing audiences in the northwest for over a decade. Together her and her sister, Angela pour their lush and heartfelt harmonies into the eclectic folk rock band that is CORNER. Swinging their smoky sweet voices from moody and dynamic ballads like ‘Last Words' to gritty country flecked gems like their dive bar ode, ‘Whiskey'.


The band formed in 2012 when all members met while working at The Portland City Grill, the city's famous high-rise watering hole. At their first practice, Crystal brought a couple of songs, a bottle of whiskey and no expectations. With Max Cheswick on lead guitar, Mike Cook on bass and the steady beat of Ray Maestas drum, the sister's music was brought to life and CORNER was born.


Since then their sound has flown the airwaves of Portland Radio Project and KMUZ Radio in Salem and pulsed the stages of Portland's iconic Star Theatre to Seattle's euphoric Hempfest. They have put out two EP's, Rude Awakening in 2013 and CORNER LIVE at Pdx Spotlight in 2015.


The group's latest project titled "Where You Are" is was recorded in Vancouver and Long Beach, Washington and produced by Patrick Tetrault. In May 2018, with the help of many friends and fans, they successfully funded a Kickstarter that allowed them to mix the record in Nashville by Craig Alvin (Kasey Musgraves, Vanessa Carlton). The new record will be publically released in January of 2019.

Pretty Gritty

Pretty Gritty

Pretty Gritty might be another duo emerging from a sea of female/male acts as of late, but there is nothing typical about these two. Sarah and Blaine have cultivated a sound that is both timeless and classic, yet they still succeed in bringing something fresh to the table, pushing rootsy-Americana sounds into an edgy, alternative space. These two have carved out a reputation as a must-see live act, allowing them to open for such acts as The Wood Brothers (SalmonFest 2016), Tim O'Brian, Tony Trischka, Chris Eldridge, Rod Picott, Lake Street Dive, Ben Sollee & the Kentucky Native and Joe Newberry.

Both members utilize their multi-instrumental skills to sing, play stringed instruments and hold down back-beats, all simultaneously for a truly engaging experience. But they are not simply just entertainers. It is their mesmerizing vocal harmonies and beautifully crafted songwriting that really tug at the heartstrings and earn them life-long fans.

"There's an elusive chemistry between some singers. George and Tammy had it, and so did Olivia and John. Those kids from Nickel Creek had it, and the hottest example of it (recording) in Nashville at the moment are a duo known as Pretty Gritty."
-C. Brett Campbell
Middle Tennessee Music

The duo originally formed in Maryland in 2010, but after completing 2 (completely DIY) National tours and 3 recording projects, Sarah and Blaine decided to relocate to Portland, OR. At first they hit the streets, busking downtown, but it didn't take long for folks to take notice. Pretty Gritty are now playing at venues all over the Pacific Northwest. They have successfully completed several tours, covering ground all over OR, WA, MT, CO, UT and AK.

Pretty Gritty's self-titled debut album (2012) features the well known jam/festival scene artist, Keller Williams, as the voice of the devil on the track titled "Hellhound Blues." This freshman attempt won them 2 Indie Music Channel awards, Best Country Song and Best Folk Song.

In 2015, Pretty Gritty began their relationship with producers Fred Cannon & Paul Buono at Creative & Dreams Music Network (Nashville, TN) where they recorded their Lonely Road EP (released Feb 2016). Pleased with the experience, everyone decided to continue the relationship and return to the studio to record a full album, Seven Year Itch, due to release March 30th, 2018.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
