Weezy Ford is a North Carolina native new to the Portland music scene. Integrating slide guitar and tap dancing, she plays ham-radio-filtered back porch jams your grandma would listen to. Ben Braden (lower 48) lends tasteful fender guitar licks to create the country, blues,and jazz roots inspired rock and roll.
Robin Bacior’s voice speaks of a much older soul. Her songs reveal honest pictures with instrumentation as a medium to illuminate her lyrics. Born and raised in California, Bacior took great influence from California folk traditions and brought them with her to New York, and eventually to Portland.
Bacior’s releases have included her debut EP, Aimed For Night (2010), a 7” for Man Before Me on her own label, Consonants & Vowels Recordings (2011), along with her debut LP, Rest Our Wings (2011), the EP I Left You, Still In Love (2012), and a 7″ for Shapes and Seasons (2012). Her songs have received praise from press from NPR’s All Songs Considered, Vh1, MTV, NYLON, L Magazine, CBS, Stereomood, Soundcloud, along with various blogs and college radio stations throughout the states.
