Gwythaints

Gwythaints

When you're a sheltered prairie kid, nothing is cooler than your best friend's biker dad's pagan girlfriend reading aloud to you from epic fantasy books based on Welsh mythology over extended camping trips under the stars on the rocky shores of Puget Sound. That's where Adam Sweeney first heard about the Gwythaints-fearsome birds that served as the all-seeing eyes of the dark lord in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain. When he found his band emerging from the ashes of the pandemic with a new record and a cinematic alt rock sound, the name just fit.

Leading into 2020 Sweeney's old band The Breaking had been at the height of its powers. They were sharing stages with bands like Rubblebucket, The Sherlocks, Avi Buffalo, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Floater, Lemolo and The Stone Foxes. They had just made a record with a production team of Grammy award winners and nominees-including producer Patrick Tetrault (Laura Gibson, The Features) mix engineer Craig Alvin (Kacey Musgraves, Kathleen Edwards) and mastering engineer Pete Lyman (Weezer, Brandi Carlile)-that launched them into new sonic territory. But then Covid-19 happened, tours were canceled, and their record never saw the light of day.

That band has evolved. They are now Gwythaints!
Wall-of-guitar alt-rock power meets cinematic pop production lyrically charged with poetic angst.

The new music finally emerges in Spring 2022.

Katelyn Convery

Raw pop, pure grunge

Katelyn Convery

With what, at times, could be described as a buttery, breathless roar over a darkly warm guitar, singer-songwriter Katelyn Convery’s achingly soothing tones tap into deeper histories, that it should come as no surprise to hear of her worldly pursuits, from busking solo-acoustic in Barcelona to recording an unreleased electronic-house album in South Africa. Born and raised in Oregon, any wandering ear might call her one of Portland’s best kept secrets, her truest home residing in the very songs she writes, with a timeless pain lurking beneath a calm surface, swimming in a sound reminiscent of Morissette, Carlisle, McCartney and Cobain all wrapped into one. “A voice to remember,” as Portland Notes wrote of her debut album Unarmed released in 2015, Katelyn Convery is raw pop and pure grunge.
