Folk artist Tara Velarde combines commanding vocals and thought-provoking
lyrics into a genre distinctly her own. Part soul, part singer-songwriter, part
blues-rock, and with a splash of the theater, Velarde takes the stage with
charm, sass, and a quest to find the far reaches of her vocal abilities.
Listeners liken her performance to Adele, Brandi Carlile, and
Carole King - great female powerhouses with a lot to say. Glide
Magazine says: "While rooted in folk and pop, the
[new] album finds Tara tapping into a more soulful sound, which suits her
well as she definitely has the vocal chops. It also displays a young artist
with a soaring sense of confidence who isn't afraid to step outside her musical
comfort zone and take risks for the sake of the song."
With the recent release of "Rise" (EP, 2019) following
her freshman “Get Out and Walk” (LP, 2016), Velarde stays active on the road
and in the studio. She tours both solo and with her full band throughout the
Western US, and in 2018 made her European debut with a 3 week tour of Italy.
"Feel Like a Human" Live (2018)
"Touch You" Live
"Such an Island" Live (2017)
“Tara Velarde embodies that
elusive combination of swagger and sensitivity. She writes songs with a sharp
sense of poetics and vulnerability, and then steps up to the mic to her deliver
words and vocal melodies with powerhouse pipes.” — Screams Media
The Coastline is a Portland-based trio founded in 2014. The influence of a wide variety of genres has resulted in performances that range from lounge rock to synth-driven electro pop. After playing their first McMenamins show at Ringlers Pub in 2015, The Coastline have since performed at Hotel Oregon, Kennedy School, the Crystal Ballroom, The Winery at Edgefield and more. You may have even enjoyed a pint of The Coastline Fresh Hop IPA during a visit to the Ringlers Pub.
Rob Rainwater is a performing artist, songwriter, stories
teller, guitarist, and mandolinist. He is also a studio musician,
producer, and at times, a bit of a stand-up comic once he takes the stage.
Drawing on a background steeped in blues, folk, classic rock, and bluegrass,
Rob creates a rich mix of originals and classic blues and rock covers. His
songwriting comes from the heart, telling both autobiographical and fictional
accounts of a man who emerged from a battered beginning and fought internally
to discover his source of joy and hope as an adult. Rob is a man who has earned
his right to sing the blues, and he can wail with the best of them. Then in the
next turn, he'll share a song that points to a silver lining, a lesson learned,
a truth accepted. Rob is a genuine people-person, a tender-hearted creative,
and his passion is to express his experience through music and hear others'
James is fast making a name for himself not only in the Portland area, but in
the music community. This 17-year-old
guitar slinger is known for being able to hold his own with seasoned musicians
4 times his age.
the tender age of nine years old, when most 3rd graders are worried about being
picked first for a ballgame and watching the clock for when school is out,
Timothy was watching his father play guitar.
Now in his teens, he's the first on many people's minds when it comes to
the new face of the blues. Following in
the footsteps of such young greats as Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
was born in March of 2002 and lives in the small rural community of Mulino,
Oregon with his parents and sister, just outside the Portland Metro area. While growing up in a small Oregon town,
Timothy was accustomed to jam sessions where his father and friends would get
together regularly to play music. He was
enrolled in Piano lessons for a couple of years at an early age, but never
seemed very inspired by piano. His
parents also co-hosted an annual event called the Mulino Blues Festival that
began in 2000 and continues to be a favorite summer, memory-making event and
attracting top-notch talent from around the region to play.
was during rehearsals for the MBF one year that Timothy said, “ I want to do a song with you dad!”. That was in 2011 and while he had learned
some chords and strumming, it was that performance of Knocking on Heaven’s Door
that really got him hooked. He continued
to learn more and more about all things guitar and music and the next year got
up solo and played two songs to an amazed crowd.
the next several years, Timothy attended local open mics and jam sessions
honing his skills and learning new ones from the many seasoned players he was
jamming with. It wasn’t long before his
skills on the guitar had surpassed the Old Man’s so his dad hired a
multi-instrumental teacher, Ken Brewer, to take him to the next level. Timothy began to get noticed by other
working musicians at the jams and before long he was being invited as a guest
player for several paying gigs.
was in 2016 that the family joined the Cascade Blues Association to sign
Timothy up for the Journey to Memphis competition with the goal of playing
during the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, a renowned
contest that brings acts from around the world.
Timothy was selected in 2016 to be the CBA’s Youth Representative and he
played in various clubs along the famous Beale street in 2017 and again in
that first trip to Memphis for IBC Timothy has played at the Waterfront Blues
Festival, the Gorge Brews and Blues Festival, the Cathedral Park Jazz Festival,
the Tualatin Crawfish Festival and numerous venues throughout the Portland
area. On his 16th Birthday he
was invited to play with famous Blue Man Walter Trout at Yoshi’s in Oakland,
California and with Curtis Salgado in Portland Oregon.
Bio soon to come.
Started in the
winter of 2012, The Moonshine began crafting a style all their own based on
applying traditional stringband techniques to the unconventional, yet instantly
familiar writing of Michael Gerard Levasseur. This is music born of the endless
wonder of the open countryside, just as it is music meant to be heard blaring
from brightly lit dance halls on crowded city streets. During a given
performance one is as likely to hear a modernist take on a Carter Family song
from the 20's, as an anti-GMO song written in 2012 with a distinctly old-time
