dKOTA's new album, Red Shift, was recorded at the venerable Jackpot! Studios in Portland, Oregon, as well as The Map Room and the exclusive Halfling Studios, also in Portland. The album features a handful of local session talent, including the Bizarre Star Strings (Drive-by Truckers, The Decemberists, The Shins, Band of Horses, etc.). The album was meticulously engineered and mixed by Adam Lee (Portugal. The Man, The Decemberists, Built To Spill, etc.), and mastered at Eureka Mastering (STRFKR, Of Montreal, Local Natives, etc.).

Red Shift traverses a sonic and emotional spectrum from a delicate acoustic guitar and voice, to haunting strings layers, to blistering rock anthems and electric guitar solos. The album reflects upon ever-increasing isolation and social distance caused by personal loss and death, technological bubbles, and a pandemic. Consequently, the album is intense, dynamic, moody, and sonically diverse. Yet, project leader, Dustin Johnsen, tethers the album together with his underlying folk-style, singer-songwriter foundation. Stripped of all else lies the sorrow of a human being drifting further and further from other luminous bodies, much like the red-shifted stars in our expanding Universe.

dKOTA has been creating and performing music in the Portland, Oregon area for over a decade. Red Shift represents the first professionally performed, recorded, and produced album.


The Druthers

Heart-sweeping folk/pop

The Druthers

The Druthers make heart-sweeping folk/pop with his and hers harmony. This magnetic Portland, OR six-piece is defined by the unmistakable voices of their two lead singers-the open, weathered rasp that is his (Kirk Duncan) and the whisper-to-wail force that is hers (Erin Adkisson). The pair is accented by a song-serving flurry of trumpet, piano, organ, guitars, drums and bass that evokes the likes of Swell Season and the Civil Wars, and lives somewhere between Ben Harper and Ray Lamontagne. Unmerciful, heartbreaking, uplifting and full of grace, The Druthers make moving music. They are now touring in support of their new self-produced CD, Everyday Ghost
