Girl Fest is Giving Us Life

A much needed celebration of female power, Girl Fest is back with a showcase of some of Portland's best female musicians of the moment. Hosted by the soulful Blossom, this year's installation of GF touches on a few different genres, including jazz, folk and hip hop, to me enjoyed by all ages.

Coco Columbia has been a local love we've grow to appreciate more and more, with her refreshingly modern and eclectic take on jazz. Her voice, along with her production, have become indicative of the variety of other music scenes the city provides.

Other upbeat offerings come from some of the only female rap artists in Portland's market right now, including Karma Rivera. Taking a beat and fully making it her own, Karma's rhymes give the best of relatable expression and fun quips. Building off of that, duo Neka & Kahlo mix angelic bedroom pop with hip hop that results in a trappy type R&B that we need much more of.

Courtney Noe could easily dominate the pop charts with her retro ballads and after the Fish Eye EP, we've been dying for more of Haley Heynderickx's acoustic folk.

Thankfully Girl Fest 2017 is still happening tonight at the Crystal Ballroom. It's an all ages show, including some performances from young artists involved with local youth music nonprofit My Voice Music, so bring all your loved ones out for a night of true female empowerment.





New Track: "Juicy J" - No Thank You & Signs to Lame-O Records

After recording her first EP A Nü Start on an iPhone at her home in South Philly, No Thank You, a.k.a. Kaytee Della-Monica, has teamed up with The Superweaks' Evan Bernard (recording) and Chris Baglivo (mixing) for her first full-length album. And apparently, Lame-O Records likes what its family members have been working on. The DIY Philly label has recently brought Della-Monica into the fold, signing her to its impressive, growing roster. No Thank You's forthcoming LP Jump Ship is scheduled for release on February 24. Check out the lusher-sounding, new version of her lead single, "Juicy J," below! (Photo by Pete Murray)





New Deadfellow EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

An emerging, eerie resolve rings true in Love Songs for the Contemporary Listener, the debut EP from Deadfellow. Moving forward despite dreary conditions, the songs carry a lingering; whether shaded in heavy guitar ascension or softer circling patterns, the soulful ache remains. Deadfellow is set to perform solo at Coda on Monday, January 30, and will be in full-fledged band mode on Friday, February 10 at Ulana’s. (Photo by Dave Apple)





New Music Video: "I Don't Ever Wanna Leave California" - Allison Crutchfield

Co-directed with Catherine Elicson, the video for “I Don’t Ever Wanna Leave California” offers some further insight into Allison Crutchfield's debut solo album, Tourist In This Town, scheduled for release on January 27 via Merge Records. With an eye planted from the West Coast, the song captures a sense of casual, melodic warmth while describing in direct manner the desire to move forward personally. The First Unitarian Church will host Crutchfield & The Fizz’s record release show on Friday, February 10 that will also include Radiator Hospital, Pinkwash, Empath, and Try The Pie.





New Shannen Moser LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Shannen Moser's new LP, Oh, My Heart, rekindles her personal-threaded folk, creating reflective anecdotes that dig into the earnest environment. While acoustic guitar serves as the instrumental foundation, accents of keys, cello and trumpet aid in accentuating a vivid atmosphere. The album was recorded/mixed/mastered by Eric Muth at The Enscoe's Barn in Earlville, NY and The Knife Lair in Philly. Moser is slated to perform at Kung Fu Necktie on Tuesday, January 17 with Endless Mike and The Beagle Club, Maxwell Stern, and Spenser Colmbs.
