Kyle J. Glenn

Kyle J. Glenn

Unapologetically raw and sung straight from the heart, the Portland-based Kyle J. Glenn's music juxtaposes inner monologues with triumphant declarations. Bittersweet chords collide against hope-tinged lyrics, taking listeners on a captivating sonic journey that ebbs and flows between tension and resolution.

With a wide-range of influences, today he cites Gillian Welch, John Prine and The Mountain Goats as a few notable musicians that have helped him forge his own sound and identity as an artist.

He released his debut solo EP ‘As You Write this the Whistle Blows' back in 2020, toured across the United States, and is releasing his first full-length LP in Spring 2024.


Leo Moon

Leo Moon

Leo Moon is the solo incarnation of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Brian Adrian Koch.

California born and Oregon raised, Brian has been active in the Portland music scene since arriving in 2000. He is a current and founding member of indie rock band Blitzen Trapper (2000-present) and psychedelic folk duo Dead Lee (2018-2023) Appearing now as a solo acoustic performer, his minimal and haunting tunes are stripped down paeans to the glorious absurdities of life; harmonica spattered psalms to the void.


M.L. Johnson

M.L. Johnson

Portland-based songwriter M.L. Johnson beckons listeners into a realm suffused with folk nostalgia and poignant melodies. Drawing from the rich tapestry of 60s folk, Johnson's music resonates with an authenticity that harkens back to the era's introspective troubadours. Echoing the soulful strains of Bert Jansch, John Martyn, and Fred Neil, Johnson's melancholic fingerstyle compositions are a testament to the enduring power of raw emotion.
Nestled in his basement studio, Johnson crafts his sonic vignettes using analog tape, infusing each track with a warmth that feels both timeless and intimate. His introspective lyrics, delivered in a hushed croon, invite listeners to explore themes of solitude, yearning, and quiet revelation.
As Johnson prepares to unveil his debut single in the summer of 2024, anticipation builds for a journey into the heart of his melancholy muse. With every dusty chord and whispered confession, M.L. Johnson invites us to linger in the bittersweet beauty of his musical landscape.
