Hayley Lynn - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Hayley Lynn
Hayley Lynn's songwriting is raw, seductive, and impactful. Within her lyrical imagery she tells the listener an honest story with a lesson to be learned. Never afraid to take risks, Hayley Lynn's vulnerable and timeless performances unequivocally capture the attention and hearts of her audience. An evening with Hayley Lynn's music is a night to be remembered.

Originally, Hayley Lynn studied to be an actor at the University of Victoria with a long history of writing music. But it was writing with other Canadian songwriters in British Columbia that Hayley started to take it seriously. She's written over 150 songs and counting and is currently working on writing a dark comedy musical called 'So My Boyfriend's a Zombie' as well as working on writing a feature film with the film company Illustrious Productions LLC.

Since December 2017, Hayley participated in The Acoustic Guitar Project's Portland showcase submitting her song 'Lost Twin' as well as starting 2018 off by being featured in both the Portland's All-Star Buskers Concert and #WomenCrush Music's first showcase. She was also one of Maryhill Winery's featured acts for their Summer Kick-Off showcase alongside singer-songwriter Nate Botsford and Skybound Blue. Recently, Hayley Lynn just released her newest single 'You Are My Love' on Valentine's day and is in the process of recording her next record which will be released in 2018.
Haley Johnsen - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Haley Johnsen
Haley Johnsen is a singer songwriter best characterized by her powerhouse vocals and unique lyrical perspective. Drawing inspiration from acts like Bonnie Raitt and Grace Potter, and Brandi Carlile, Haley writes and sings with a determination that is willful, playful, but never forced.

Haley recently finished touring as lead support for The Wind and The Wave all across the United States. Her second EP, When You Lit The Sky, was released in the spring of 2017. Tracks like "When I Loved You" and "Weekend" showcase Haley's blues-rock style and ability to belt a sultry anthem, while tracks like "Let's Go To The Moon" and "Carry On" carry both the strength and femininity of her full vocal range.

Born in Oregon to musical parents, Haley grew up around everything from pop, classic rock, country, and gospel, an appreciable quality that is easily recognized in her original songs. As a student, she began to learn the guitar, quickly shifting her focus from choral and a cappella ensembles to her solo work. Her first national attention came from a strong run on a reality music competition, and has since maintained a strong following that stretches well beyond her hometown of Portland.

She is currently back in the recording studio, having just released her two new singles "Lift Me Up" and "Close to You", two songs that represent her duality as a rock performer as well as emotive and powerful pop singer.
Maiah Wynne - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Maiah Wynne
“To experience Maiah Wynne is to follow a wandering butterfly as it leads you away to a land of delicate melodies, mid-tempo folk rhythms, and perfectly tailored instrumentation."

Maiah Wynne is a multi-instrumentalist, one-woman tour de force, with a show that appeals to people of all ages and backgrounds. Throughout her performances, Maiah fluently transitions through unique and traditional instruments, like the dulcimer, oil can ukulele, keys, and guitar, while her feet do the percussive work. Adept at embodying a mood or theme in one song and then swapping it for another, what emerges is a shifting and engaging experience threaded through by Wynne’s haunting, evocative voice and earnest lyrics.

Artists like Maiah Wynne remind us that we have a choice in how we engage with the world. Wynne is intentional in the subjects she chooses to write about. She believes in art—music in particular—as a means for change and has dedicated projects to causes including the preservation of ocean life and mental health.

She has performed on large stages and in intimate settings including featured appearances at Sundance Film Festival and South by Southwest. Maiah most recently placed second in The Museum of Pop Culture's Sound Off 2018 competition, and she toured as a featured artist with Portland Cello Project in May.
