Stars of Cascadia is an alt-country band from Portland. Their debut album Riverside Skyline is straight out of Laurel Canyon and Bakersfield, bursting with melodic hooks and compelling harmonies while exploring themes of reminscence and loss, small town struggles, and the duality of seasons. The group is led by singer/guitarists Scott Jeffries and Ray Yurkewycz, who began exploring their country sound as members of Spirit Lake. Where that band colored Scott's songs with their typical psychedelic bombast, Stars of Cascadia fully embraces those Americana stylings, joining latter-day revivalists such as Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, and Sturgill Simpson as spiritual heirs to Gram Parsons, the Byrds, and Neil Young.
From the initial sip to the final glass-emptying swallow, Matthew Lindley creates a vibe that invites you to pull up a chair, pour yourself a pint, and relax among friends. With the storytelling heart of a troubadour, the passion and soul of a prophet and the gritty twang of a sagebrush sinner Lindley loads the virtual jukebox with a smokey blend of Blues, Americana, Rockabilly, and Southern soul that has Nashville leanings but is firmly rooted in the PNW.Take a long, deep listen to Late Bloomer, the latest album from Lindley and allow the flavor of this blend of boxcar swing, hobo blues, two-step rockabilly, gambler soul ballad, disco sing-along mood collective to slide through your veins and beat with your heart. No designated driver needed just a raw need for a great album and the beautiful distraction it can provide.
