The Alt Folk-Rock band, Saint Ophelia will bring
their unique and visceral sound to The White Eagle Tavern in Portland on Nov.
1. The five-piece ensemble is fronted by vocalist/guitarist Rebekah Kuzma,
singer songwriter Joe Panzetta, and pedal steel magician Dan Tyack. With a
killer rhythm section of Wesley Peterson on drums and Chuck Keller on bass,
their original songs run the gamut from groovy to rockin’ to spacious, and seem
to move through them rather than from them. Opening the evening will be Stills
Vergnetti (Jennifer and Annie) followed by Skybound Blue.
Skybound Blue's worldclass vocals and truly great
hooks set them apart from being just another Americana band" Arial Publicity.
"This is feel good music with
soul" Becky Johnson, Sterling Talent
married duo Matt and Jenny Behnke, Skybound Blue is harmony-driven, foot-stomping, dig deep and tell the story in your bones kind of
music. Whether performing as a duo or full band the
chemistry onstage is truly mesmerizing and the energy palpable. This
is raw talent, true artistry and tangible authenticity that leaves you
nothing short of inspired. Their music is in regular rotation on top
triple A stations, has been curated for regional music compilations, and
featured in National ad campaigns. Skybound Blue recently finished a 60
date summer tour including a sold out house concert series which has
garnered significant attention from fans and music industry professionals
The couple met in Jazz
choir at Spokane Falls Community College, fell instantly in love, then promptly
quit school in search of adventure. They spent three summers on Guam, where
Matt landed a gig diving for silver bullion on a 17th Century Spanish Galleon.
Then, in 2000, they sold everything and sailed the Bahamas for a year:
snorkeling, playing music, and making life-long friends.
A year later their lives changed forever when Jenny was
diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Cancer remains the biggest challenge the
couple has ever endured. Out of this experience came a quiet knowing that
writing and sharing their music was to be their path. They are here with the
courage to share their story with their whole heart.
Skybound Blue's sophomore album was released Jan 2015. Get
