Honey Divers are the project of Portland-based singer-songwriter Tim Karplus. The acoustic group, made up of Karplus, bassist Julio Appling, drummer/percussionist Mark Powers and vocalist Madison Berry-Sellers, formed earlier this year. Though they’ve only been in existence for a short time, Honey Divers have already become known around town for their distinctive harmonies, catchy, innovative songwriting, and overall sunny disposition. The band are releasing their self-titled debut EP this fall, which will be available at the show!
Stephanie Scelza: Stephanie narrowly escaped a life of professional opera-singing when she found a guitar, quit her studies, and eloped with a band. Stephanie is hard-pressed to describe her music as a blend of funk, blues, and folk. You can find her padding around the Portland music scene with no particular directive beyond survival, and the desire to find a quiet place for a good, long howl.
