Dear Drummer
Taking their name from an anonymous letter their drummer received from an unappreciative neighbor at the time, Dear Drummer has been having fun and filling venues all over Portland since forming in the winter of 2012. Their unique blend of soul-funk-rock and evolving sound has kept dance floors full and audiences fully engaged.

Lead singer Justin Odom draws listeners in with his smooth vocals and high-energy performance, while the rest of his band mates keep the grooves tight. Diverse and varied, their influences range from Marvin Gaye and Paul Simon, to the Beastie Boys and Tribe Called Quest. The band released its first self titled studio album EP in June 2015 and is going back into the studio soon to record their first full-length LP.

Are you ready for your Soul Progression?

Soul Progression is born of Portland’s unbound music scene, and hangs on the tongues of those charmed by its provocative sound at eminent Portland venues. The band is composed of five “Soulies” who lay down musical fusions of soul, pop, blues, acoustic and funk: K’lyn Bain (Lead Vocalist), Brian “B.B.” Bays (Lead Guitar & Vocalist), Dave Kelsay (Drums), Timothy James Hornickel (Bass) with guest appearances by James Lawrence (Saxophone).

In addition to cultivating the labyrinth of Portland stages, Soul Progression - true to its name - has appeared to raise money at multiple Cancer Foundation and other benefit shows. Its first radio exposure on Portland’s KBOO has spawned pursuit with the Willamette Week, Portland Tribune, multiple local web publications and radio spotlights.

Soul Progression is baring its essence and soulful acoustics after recording with Rola Studios and Mountain Air Studios. .
