The Low Bones
The Low Bones
The Low Bones are a Roots Rock/Americana band based in Portland, Oregon. Their original songwriting recalls the country-rock sound of Gram Parsons, Camper Van Beethoven and Uncle Tupelo with enough classic rock to bring Tom Petty into the fray. Their songs evoke the dusty barrooms and taverns where bands sang stories that made you want to listen, laugh, cry, and dance. The Willamette Week affirms, " Portland's Low Bones' distinctive sound sets them apart from the packed roots-rock crowd. Instrumentally tight and inspired".
Root Jack
Root Jack
here is a long tradition of the bohemian laborer that works during the day to support his family, then comes home at night to write songs, and often those songs are about his struggle.
Root Jack sings songs of that same struggle. Joy and exhaustion, satisfaction and disappointment, poor choices and the consequences of them.
Roots-rock, steeped in Truth.

If Cream had been listening to the Carter Family, instead of Robert Johnson, it might have come off like this. Kris Stuart singer and guitarist, Kevin Cowan bass player and drummer Chris Hutton are a tight, 70's-rock inspired roots-music band. An American band.
Kathryn Claire
Kathryn Claire
Kathryn Claire has asserted herself in a new generation of traditionally-inspired musicians. Her guitar and fiddle-playing exhibits a technical grace which is matched only by her truly captivating voice and she possesses the rare ability to move seamlessly across genres. Her deep love and respect for traditional music has long been a driving influence and those roots can be heard in her own original music.

Early classical training on the violin naturally gave way to her own creative inclinations. While still a teenager, Kathryn taught herself guitar in order to explore her own voice as a songwriter. She has since spent years cultivating her unique style and approach to music as a singer, guitar player, violinist and songwriter.

Performing is a truly joyful experience for Kathryn Claire, and her love of music is evident every time she takes the stage. Strong fundamentals from her classical background combined with an innate ability to improvise and a keen sense of harmony has made her a sought after collaborator and allowed her to work in a wide range of genres.
