Løvejøy: Founded by Portlanders Nate Martin and Jonah Poole, the project known as “L Ø V E J Ø Y” began due to mere chance. Jonah, after meeting a mutual friend of Nate’s through the lighting of a cigarette, was given his contact information and immediately began to start a dialogue in relation to music and a potential creative partnership. Nate had recently left a band, and was looking for a fresh start with someone that shared his ambition. Influenced by blues and soul and classic rock, his guitar playing ability fit well with Jonah’s black gospel and soul influences, and before long they were writing multiple tunes at every opportunity presented to them when together. They started playing local house shows and soon took to stages in and around Portland, as well as heading out of state. They are driven to create by their passion for music, and their ambitions are high. They have gathered a reputation for high energy shows and party rock that never fails to get people moving. Their latest single “Legends” is a taste of their upcoming EP that will push a party rock sound that the Northwest and their audience is more than ready for.
