LYNX & The Servants of Song
LYNX & The Servants of Song
LYNX & the Servants of Song are a multifaceted wall of talent based out of Portland, OR led by the immensely talented Caitlin ‘LYNX’ DeMuth. LYNX is notable for her original and powerful lyrics delivered by her commanding and haunting voice. The Servants of Song features Cheya Mackay on guitar, Nickles D’onofrio on bass, Julian Fritz on drums and Asher Fulero on keys. The band is inspired by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Ryan Adams, Paul Simon, First Aid Kit and Alabama Shakes. Their highly anticipated debut album Northlands will be released in the spring of 2017. Northlands is a collection of exquisitely arranged stories, well earned lessons and refined anecdotes. The lyrics are charmingly insightful, tastefully sentimental and truly moving. The intentional analogue approach to Northlands showcases LYNX’s instrumental talent as a guitarist and composer that pairs perfectly with her singing and song writing ability. The band is known to execute pulsating and sincere performances that completely commit to musical authenticity. LYNX & the Servants of Song are a rare marvel of band and are certainly one to watch.
Ilya Goldberg began training in classical violin at an early age in his birthplace of Perm,
Russia. Since moving to the States in 2000 to pursue music full-time, his skill and
dedication has guided him on the nomad’s path from the Cleveland Institute of Music to
international tours out of his home base in Portland, Oregon.

In the classical realm, Ilya has performed with several Russian and American orchestras, chamber groups, and as a soloist. With over a decade of experience as a chameleonic studio musician on violin, viola, and mandolin he is lauded for his ability to fluidly adapt his improvisational mastery to any genre. Ilya also fills a unique niche by infusing electronic music with classical technique and a sensibility spanning epochs of music. His collaborators include RANDOM RAB, LYNX, RENA JONES, THE HUMAN
and works closely with innovative electronic trip-hop producer EMANCIPATOR. As a producer under the moniker Lapa, Ilya weaves together musical stories with complexly textured harmonies, expansive melodies, and intricately layered beats. His music blurs borders and transcends boundaries, illuminating the resonance of universal forces and teleporting people to wild, dream-like places of serenity and connection.
"Cohen’s music is unmistakably one of a photographer and filmmaker: cinematic and bursting with story. His songs reflect a relationship of light and sound, and above all strive to reflect the beauty around us. Delicate and pure, each track is marked by the joy of simply making music. Whether he is playing the guitar (banjo, bass, ukulele or sitar), or photographing nature, Cohen’s art mirrors the simple beauty that surrounds all of us." - Aurgasm
