Young Elk - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Young Elk
Distant, melodic, and at times,crushingly bleak — Young Elk is the creative vehicle for Portland-based songwriter Ezekiel J Rudick, and members Tony Reyes, Scott Taylor, Bruce Reed, and Nic Moen.

Formerly the the principle force behind Portland's own abrasive indie rock outfit, Violent Psalms, Ezekiel and Young Elk take their more subtle musical cues from introspective americana, shoegaze, and minimalist 90’s indie rock, falling somewhere between Pedro The Lion, Low, and Slowdive.

Recorded by good friend and longtime engineer and producer Jordan Richter (Yoko Ono, Band Of Horses), the band's debut EP, Minor Keys, is set to release early 2016.
Falcon Heart - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Falcon Heart
Soaring melodic harmonies and captivating storytelling form the foundation of Falcon Heart’s Folk inspired Indie/Rock sound. With influences ranging from Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes to Sublime and Elvis Presley, Falcon Heart expresses love, loss, and lessons learned from the evergreen city of Portland, Oregon.

Falcon Heart was conceived when a Craigslist ad brought musicians and Oregon natives Marcus Glaze and Aaron DeRosso together almost ten years ago. They have been refining their friendship, songwriting, and performance skills through various projects ever since, forming Falcon Heart in 2015 with the addition of bassist Robert Williams and electric violinist Jean Mastaler.

Glaze, a natural born performer, joins his instrumental, vocal, and songwriting talents with those of DeRosso, a meticulous and engaging long-time drummer, singer/songwriter, and recent guitarist. Williams embellishes upon Falcon Heart’s melodies with his catchy and intricate bass lines, while Mastaler blends her classical sensibility with her fierce electric violin into the expressive, nuanced, and explosive sound that is Falcon Heart.
Andy Sydow - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Andy Sydow
Andy Sydow is an American singer-songwriter and musician. Born in 1991, and a Colorado boy almost his entire life, his music dabbles in Southern Rock, swampy Blues slide guitar, Americana and Folk. He began playing piano and saxophone at an early age, and started the guitar and mouth harp in high school. In his senior year, his self-penned tune, "Sheridan Road" was voted the class song. He also released his first demo of original tunes and covers that same year. Andy is currently a working musician and a music performance major in jazz piano at The University of Colorado at Denver. He does a weekly gig with the Highland Jazz Trio, and is the piano player for internationally recognized Claim Jumpers Dixieland band, and the UCD Jazz Ensemble. His first full length CD of his own songs entitled "Like A Bird" will be released sometime in 2011.
Livy Conner - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Livy Conner

"Mind Of Your Own is a brilliant debut album from Livy Conner. Combining profound lyrics with a distinctive singing style, Livy is a fresh 'voice' on the music scene in the tradition of the great singer/songwriters.

-HughBroder, Executive Producer, 2013 documentary, For the Love of Music (The Story of Nashville)

"While Conner’s lithe voice can knock you out when it needs to, her songwriting is equally deserving of praise. Her lyrics are reflective, emotional, and, in a word, real."

-Jared Booth, Metronome Charleston

"The Lowcountry singer has a tender-sweet voice and a knack for crafting easy-going creekside melodies. Our recommendation: Queue up 'Dave Said'."

-Kailey Miller, Charleston City Paper
