The Cabin Project
The Cabin Project
The Cabin Project, made up of four Portland-based women, is an indie rock band whose sound stems from haunting choruses, three-part harmonies, pedals, synths and string sections. The songs are musically expansive, yet retain an intimacy similar to that of The National, Warpaint and Bon Iver.
Born in an attic "cabin" studio lined with Douglas Fir, the band started as a project of Katie Sawicki, a former-folksinger from Brooklyn who became inspired by electric guitars, keys, synthesizers, and balancing all three onstage.
After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2008, Sawicki sought out musicians to collaborate with, leading her to musical partner Zanny Geffel, an orchestral drummer, rooted in jazz and percussion, with a preponderance for poetry and onstage mayhem. Rebekah Hanson, Jean Mastaler and Kelly Clifton create the band’s strings and bass section.

"Like their name suggests, the band’s sound is reminiscent of the kind of intimate space created by artists like Bon Iver. The group uses traditional orchestral and choral methods to create a track that is inexplicably modern, heavy, and pop at the same time." - American Songwriter

“…impressively educated string section with octave pedals and vocal harmonies to create music that’s both intimate and otherwordly.” – Bitch Magazine

I've attached our picks and stage plot for venues as well. Just wanted to get everything on one email....
Coco Columbia
Coco Columbia
Portland singer-songwriter and drummer Coco Columbia fuses infectious indie-pop melodies, dreamy eyed electro-soul soundscapes, complex harmony and jazz improvisation to create her own unique brand of bumpin' space age electro-pop.
In 2012, Coco Columbia dropped out of music school, setting aside her passion for jazz drumming, to begin singing and writing music. After several months spent teaching herself to record, make beats, and play piano she put together a group of Portland’s finest jazz musicians to finish recording her debut album, “The Weight”, funded by her successful kickstarter campaign, (you can find "The Weight" on www.cococolumbia.com).

“One of the most original soul-funk-electro albums you're likely to come across this year"
-The Portland Mercury (2014)

“Sounds like a weed-fueled weekend in Candyland"
-Willamette Week (2015)

Coco has just launched her second kickstarter campaign to record her new sophomore album, "When the Birds Begin to Walk"

Human Ottoman
Human Ottoman
Human Ottoman is a power trio of electric cello, vibraphone, drum-set from Portland, Oregon.
Susan Lucia (drums) and Grayson Fiske (vibraphone) started the project in 2013. Human Ottoman has created a repertoire of raucous, rhythmically dynamic music which combines their enthusiasm for music of all cultures with modern genre-mashing sensibilities, characterized most of all by their unique instrumentation. From brain-crashing cello solos and atomic vibraphone drops to drum solos that scholars are still struggling to understand, Human Ottoman is bringing polyrhythmic rock to the masses.
