Green Mountain Guild

Green Mountain Guild

Green Mountain Guild is a Portland based chamber pop ensemble. Multi-part vocal harmonies steeped in storytelling, strings and a diverse rhythm section fuel the group to search for deeper musical portals. Emotional themes of loss, birth, pain and celebration populate a cinematic landscape. Lyrical melodies traverse an intricate and melancholy harmonic form. The rhythm section experiments with a wide palate of dynamics, coupled with the freedom to dance in and out of tempo. Elements of folk, jazz and classical music permeate their sonic canvas. Through captivating songwriting and arrangements Green Mountain Guild creates a sensory space for listeners to absorb and dwell for a time.

with guest Rachel Taylor Brown

A singer/songwriter of perversely addictive off kilter story-songs, Rachel Taylor Brown and her modern rock band create catchy pop with a dark side.

"Brown first demonstrated this amazing scope on her first CD, 'Do Not Stare,' and she continues to amaze on her new CD 'Jonah Days.' Over the course of 12 tracks, Brown spins out strange, unsettling stories about fate, bad timing, grand disappointments, cosmic punishments and the blurred line between dream and waking. Brown doesn't make it easy, but she makes it well worthwhile. A few times through Jonah Days and you'll agree." - Dave Mazza, editor, The Portland Alliance

"Brown's songs have been described as catchy alt-pop, but they're darker and subtler than that. Many of them have a twist that catches you by surprise... Dawning awareness that things aren't what they seem is another favorite theme." -David Stabler, The Oregonian
