Dead Men Talking is a rock band from Portland, OR. Formed in 2014, the members are songwriter Corey Distler of The Martyrs and Zinnie for Short, multi-instrumentalist Casey Becker of Project Eldridge, organist/guitarist Paul Hasenberg of Sallie Ford’s band and Shores of Oblivion and drummer Max Lilien of The Fourth Wall and Southern Belle. Their first release, a self-titled EP, drew from the classic bands of the 60’s and 70’s as well as Distler’s jazz piano and composition studies at Portland State University.
Ellisa Sun cuts out her heart and leaves it on the stage—which is why she never wears white. Currently on her first national tour, Ellisa is showing she has what it takes to make it on her own. Just a guitar, a 30-foot RV, and an insatiable desire to perform. Raised in Los Angeles, Ellisa migrated north and found a home in San Francisco’s creative scene, where she wrangled a seven-piece band to play her music. Her sound is honest, heartfelt and textured, combining elements of jazz, soul, and pop.
Mood Beach is an Electro-Pop project from Portland, Or. First forming in 2015 around the timbre of a TR707, MB continues to push out those synth jams from some far away shore, dipped in rose tinted waters.
