Matt Cadenelli

Matt Cadenelli

Matt Cadenelli delivers Americana-soaked pop songs with heart, integrity, and plenty of wisdom. Weaving together musical styles from Wilco to Nick Lowe to The Kinks to Neil Young, the Matt's sounds feature song-centric, melodious vistas aligned with insightful lyrical musings.

Cadenelli came of age on the Jersey Shore, steeped in Springsteen, The Smithereens, and the artistic inspiration of New York City. A short train ride to Manhattan brought the greatest music in the world to his ears as a youngster, leaving an indelible mark on his teenage soul. He began drumming in 4th grade and received his first drumkit that same year from his dad, a former drummer himself. Matt played in various rock bands throughout high school, and soon after headed west to Boulder, CO. After a year of rocking Boulder's University party scene, Cadenelli lived briefly in Athens, GA. and soon landed in Eugene, Oregon. It was during this time where he began to play guitar as well as drums professionally.

Settling in Portland, Oregon in 1998, Marcus Ginther, bestowed upon Cadenelli the title of The Don of Division Street, because he lived and worked and hung out on this up-and-coming, soon-to-be hip street in Portland. Cadenelli became immersed in Portland's music scene as one of the most sought after drummers in the city, playing with notable acts Fernando, Dr. Theopolis, Celilo, Lewi Longmire Band, and Portland Country Underground. In 2007, founding member of The Decemberists, Ezra Holbrook and Cadenelli recorded the album Animals In Love, playing most of the instruments between them.The album was released in 2009 to great critical acclaim, and earned the Don of Division Street a place in the Portland music scene.

Lewi Longmire

Roots-rock Americana

Lewi Longmire

Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland's multi-instrumentalist "go to guy." In the years since relocating to Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he's been included on shows and recordings by many of the Northwest's finest bands and songwriters. He's played with national acts Michael Hurley, Victoria Williams, Dolorean, AgesandAges, Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, Blue Giant/Viva Voce/The Robinsons, Dolorean, the Minus 5, Breathe Owl Breathe and Tara Jane O'Neill as well as local luminaries Denver, The Portland Country Underground, Midlo/Pancake Breakfast, Quiet Life, Fernando, James Low, Perhapst, Electric Ill, Little Sue, Casey Neill, Michael Jodell, the Freak Mountain Ramblers, and is an anchor member of Portland's all-star tribute to the Allman Brothers, Brothers and Sister. 

Recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a roots rock/americana band of his own, singing his own compositions. This group owes much to the American tradition of good songs played with high energy, deep roots, and an unpretentious sense of fun. Their sound finds the connection between the basement feel of The Band, the raspy blue-eyed soul of Joe Cocker, the desert space of Giant Sand, the "without a net" deep space improvisations of the San Francisco ballrooms, the punk abandon of The Stooges and the quiet contemplation of Neil Young playing solo.
