Hawkins Wright celebrates the release of his sophomore album "The Gods & the Animals." Backed by his band the Regulars, Wright delivers his unique style of Alaskan folk songs that are brought to life by some of Portland's hottest players (including members from Irie Idea, Silverhawk and Burning Atlanta). The album sways between folk, rock and even reggae at times, creating a truly original sound that is as infectious as it is inspiring.

After a summer of hot nights and late drives, Portland post-americana band, the American West, are hard at work on their debut album, set to be released in the spring of 2016. The American West is the ever evolving post-americana rock ‘n roll love child of Portland songwriter, Matthew Zeltzer. Imagine Cormac McCarthy and John Steinbeck driving back to San Francisco in a busted up jalopy after a weeklong mescaline trip in the foothills of the Sierras, and you’ll start to get where The American West are coming from.  Led by a haunting voice that recalls early folk heroes, soaring harmonies, and evocative lyrics to match, The American West, varies in instrumentation, from solo acoustic, up to a 6 piece band featuring the pedal steel guitar of Tucker Jackson (The Delines, The Minus 5). Prior to forming The American West, Zeltzer toured America extensively, releasing his seminal EP, "Desert Tortoise," in 2011. In 2012 he was named one of the “top 10 artists to watch” by the VC Reporter.  Since that time he has played with NPR Tiny Desk Winner, "Fantastic Negrito," and shared the stage with some of the west coast’s finest Americana acts, including The Milk Carton Kids, The Brothers Comatose, The Sam Chase, Crow and the Canyon, Jaime Wyatt, Frankie Boots and the County Line, John Courage and the Great Plains, and many more.
