The Moody Dudes
The Moody Dudes
The Moody Dudes are Eric Earley (Blitzen Trapper), Robbie Augspurger (Ozarks),and Evan Way (Parson Red Heads, Ozarks). Formed for the sole purpose of playing heartbreakingly romantic Valentines Day concerts, they draw their material mainly from 70's and 80's popular ballads. If you want a truly unforgettable Valentines evening with your special someone, going to see a Moody Dudes show will fit the bill perfectly.
Melville
Melville
Melville is the project of Ryan T. Jacobs, recently relocated from Berlin, Germany to Portland, Oregon. After more than three years of living in Berlin, playing solo shows across Germany, Jacobs decided it was time to form a band to fill out the songs he'd been performing solo for so long.

Erstwhile, the four-song debut EP, was recorded and mixed at Low Swing Studios. This album serves as a sort of time capsule for Jacobs' stay in the city he considers a second home, and a demonstration of the various facets and potential of his songwriting.
Rebecca Marie Miller
Rebecca Marie Miller
Rebecca Marie Miller is a force borne from Harrisburg, PA—an ever-expanding musical community. Miller's career dates back to 1996 at just the tender age of 16; her work then and since has been rooted in lilting, poly-instrumental, driving melodies dipped in melancholy. Lyrics serve as the focal point of her songs and stick close to confessional autobiography.

For 10 formative years, Miller fronted and wrote songs with Harrisburg’s Brave the Day, a band that she co-founded. Upon the dissolution of Brave the Day, Miller packed up shop and headed west to Los Angeles spending nearly two years “making lots of mistakes and losing lots of money.” In early 2010, Miller sold most of her belongings and began a solitary and slow path back home. Making her way north and then east, Miller would reconnect with Laura Burhenn, friend and founder of the Omaha based music collective The Mynabirds. Not long after, Burhenn would invite Miller to tour nationally with The Mynabirds. Of that experience she says, “So many great things have happened since then, all because I took a long drive.”

Miller’s music is devoted to contrasting the ruminating familiarity of home against the glittering promise of the open road. Tipping her hat to former band mates from Brave the Day and current band mates The Mynabirds, she’s made a name for herself in her native Harrisburg as a brown sparrow sprung from a cage. With a guitar as dark and weathered as her boots, Miller’s songs trace the spine of America, connecting the wooden stage to her rolling tires, celebrating the month she lived out of her car just as much as the afternoon she finally turned back into her driveway.
Spirit Lake
Spirit Lake
Uncle Walker’s Amber Restorative adds emotive sturm und drang to the band’s building blocks of Delta blues and early Americana. Songs like “High Desert Saints” touch on the migratory struggles that defined the Oregon Territory nearly two centuries ago, while “My My My” provides a cowpoke’s reinterpretation of the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.”

Spirit Lake, which came together in the spring of 2009, combines its members’ love for the Rolling Stones and Gram Parsons with their history of crafting arena-size pop-rock.
