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, two-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. 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. Newest members, Jean Mastaler and Kelly Clifton create the band’s strings and bass section.

The Cabin Project's newest album, "Decenter" is set to be released January 31st, 2019. It was recorded by engineer Josh Powell of The Map Room Studio in Portland, Oregon, and is being mastered by acclaimed NYC based Sarah Register.
Best described by Tucson weekly...The Cabin Project is "A sonic reflection of watching a Southern winter unfold through a smudged window at a Greyhound bus station, the music is intimate and subtle and warm. It reveals melodic sparseness of Leonard Cohen and post-Low creep. And like Cohen, The Cabin Project has a lonesome sound, but not so much to make you feel all alone."
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.
