Nails Hide Metal
Songwriters MeLinda Dalton and Russ Quinn are the creative team of Nails Hide Metal. With an extensive catalog of songs to their credit and with regular live performances, they continue to explore new musical directions. Rock guitars and drums drive their songs. Compelling lyrics, melodies and harmonies round off their unique sound.
High energy performances are a staple of live shows as they tour throughout the US and Canada.
The two began writing, playing and recording together in 2009. Three self-recorded EPs were released over the next three years. Two more followed after the couple recorded at Portland Oregon’s Jackpot! Recording Studio. They continually find inspiration for new material.
Nails Hide Metal has completed their sixth recording titled Breach. The album was recorded in Washington at South Sound Sound Recording Studio with Jason Suko. It was mastered by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering in Portland, Oregon.
Monica Nelson and the Jack London Trio is a group whose backgrounds lie in the Portland Oregon based underground/punk music scene dating back to the 1980’s. Their unique approach to music comes from Monica’s raw slice of life lyrics and soulful delivery. The deep groove bass lines of Ivan French, layered with Chester C. Stallings’ Link Ray meets Muddy Waters guitar are kept in time by the drumming of Brian Zipper.
