Rosie Darling

Rosie Darling

You couldn't mistake Rosie for anybody else. She's quietly confident, exuberantly passionate, and creatively inclined to infinity. She's highly aware of herself and the world around her, and she speaks her mind with clarity and focus. She's the kind of anomaly who pushes pop music forward by uncompromisingly embracing her own artistic impulses and following them to unprecedented heights. It's why the Boston-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter has effectively emerged as a phenomenon with tens of millions of streams and widespread praise courtesy of FLAUNT, Wonderland, EARMILK, PopMatters, and many more. Rosie Darling's debut single "Coping" introduced the world to her powerful, raw vocals and heart-on-her-sleeve writing and tallied over 40 million streams to date. Now chronicling her journey as an individual striving for connection in crowded Los Angeles, Darling's second EP keeps her emotions at the forefront as she navigates the isolation of a pandemic and wasted youth. Titled Golden Age, the record captures big, pent-up feelings from the past two years.

Caleb Hearn

Caleb Hearn

When you're born and raised in Mount Airy, North Carolina, a city with only 10,000 residents, you might assume it would be difficult to thrive as a singer-songwriter. For Caleb Hearn, however, it was an easy feat. Since his debut single, he has garnered a feverish fanbase of over 1.6 million on TikTok who've become captivated by Caleb's unique ability to take distinct, intimate stories and craft them into universal songs that everyone and anyone can relate to.

In his adolescence, Caleb used music as an escape, leaning on the craft of storytelling and song writing to channel whatever he was going through at that moment. "I always loved writing, whether it be journaling or writing short stories. I learned that I could bridge the two - music and writing - and then I fell in love with the process." After a brief stint working as a salesperson, Caleb realized that music was his passion. "I knew I had to make a career out of it because I didn't want to be a part of the normal everyday cycle. I wanted to do something bigger, and something that I loved doing, which is music."

Since then, it's more than safe to say Caleb made the right decision to pursue his own dynamic artist project. He has already been featured in Rolling Stone, gathered over 600k monthly listeners on Spotify, and accumulated more than 25 million global streams - and has done so as a completely independent artist. When his single "Always Be," about the death of a close friend, resonated deeply with audiences on TikTok, the internet followed Caleb's journey to re-releasing his song in order to own the master recording in its entirety. Caleb's need to stay true to himself, his art, and his vision separates him from others in his genre.

Giving nods to his biggest influences, like John Mayer and James Arthur, Caleb weaves the classic live sounds of the singer-songwriter genre with introspective, thoughtful lyrics that are buoyed by the use of piano, acoustic guitar, and strings, creating a cinematic listening experience that could be the soundtrack for anyone's big life moments. His new single - the emotive and compelling "It's Always Been You"- was championed by fans new and old on TikTok. They aptly nicknamed it "The Wedding Song" when Caleb uploaded a clip of the then-unreleased track. In two days the independently released song reached 100,000 streams, a clear indicator of Caleb's talent and ability to connect with his listeners.

Now signed to Nettwerk, Caleb shares "Where Do We Go From Here?," a powerful story of a devastating love lost. Caleb says, "easily one of the most personal songs I have ever written; it's inspired by a young couple that I knew growing up. I saw how strong and pure their love was for each other. Tragically, the wife passed away from cancer, leaving the husband and their two kids behind. Their story hit me in a way that I can't fully describe."

With more music on the way, Caleb says his main goal with every release is to continue touching people with his music. "I really want to shine a light for people to draw strength from, especially people who may be struggling. I want them to feel hope."

 

Tiny Fireflies

Tiny Fireflies

"...one of the most criminally underrated acts of the 2010s" - The 405

"Tiny Fireflies has been making sweet shimmery beautifully layered indie pop for some time now. Under the quiet bedroom recordings of Lisle Mitnik and Kristine Capua, the duo had eventually grown out of those covers and have recorded some of the most exquisite indie pop gems on this side of the Western Hemisphere."
- Indie Shuffle

Tiny Fireflies began as a collaboration that did not have any intentions of being a band. Chicago musicians Lisle and Kristine (whose solo projects are Fireflies and Tiny Microphone respectively) were asked to appear on "Between two Waves," a compilation series driven by the concept of two musicians joining forces to create a song together, for netlabel Eardrums Pop.

Their song ?Don?t Wait Until I Fall Asleep," an homage to the Factory Records sound, was an instant fan favorite among Eardrums?s four compilations, and in October 2010, Tiny Fireflies became the first band to release a single for the label's singles club. The three-song single was voted favorite Eardrums release, favorite single ("Snow"), and favorite collaboration in the year end poll.

The duo played their debut show in May 2011 at the 5th Annual New York City Popfest. They have since played in England, Spain, and around the Midwest (opening for Memoryhouse) in support of their follow-up EP "Change," which was released by Spanish label Little Treasure in August 2011. (It sold out in less than two weeks.) Cloudberry Records released their follow up single, "Picture Perfect" in Mach, 2012.

The band's debut full length, "The Space Between," was released in November, 2015. Produced by Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, Trembling Blue Stars), it has been described as "some of the best retro synth pop around in 2015" by AllMusic, and "a delicate bit of gossamer synth-punk that floats like cloves smoke out an apartment window" by CMJ.

2018 saw the release of "Nothing/2040." The duo now resides in Portland, Oregon.

About Mission Theater

Experience a slice of Portland history.

History

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub to event space, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
