Getaway Dogs
Once dubbed by a friend as "cushy bedroom psychedelic bossanova," Getaway Dogs is the brainchild of Brazilian-American west coast native Kai Killion. With influences ranging from popular Brazilian music to psychedelic and indie rock, folk, soul, jazz, beat poetry and beyond, the project began as a solo effort but quickly evolved into something of a collective since its conception in 2013. Various musicians of different backgrounds have passed through what Killion refers to as the "revolving door," each lending their experiences to the projects' unique, malleable sound. After two and a half years of steady work, the band released its debut record, Lost In The Ebb in August 2016, drawing significant attention from industry critics like Magnet Magazine: "Getaway Dogs inhabit their own starry eyed universe, drifting along to the tropical pulsation of big bossanova guitars, shimmering intergalactic keyboards, somnambulant vocals, whispered percussion and buoyant melodies. With a small coterie of like-minded souls, Killion made a record full of dreamy, late-night psychedelia that spins a calm, soothing spell." - J. Poet (Magnet Magazine)
Ivy Meissner
"Drenched in various shades of reverb, Meissner’s voice shifts from icy nonchalance to cynicism to a torchy but inscrutable menace. That ominousness appears on the horizon with the first echoey, psychedelic layers of guitars and Meisner’s cool, but defiantly direct vocals as the bass rises to punctuate the sudden crescendos in the album’s title track, a vividly heat-drenched nocturne. Cubillos’ masterful, majestically sweeping production completes the picture. Forget Lana Del Ray – this is the real LA noir. It’s seldom that a singer this individualistic has such a great band behind her, or that a band this good gets to back a leader who gives them so much first-class material to sink their teeth into." - New York Music Daily
The Cabin Project
The Cabin Project, made up of four Portland-based queer women, is an indie rock band whose sound stems from haunting choruses, two-part harmonies, pedals, synths and string sections. The songs are musically expansive, yet retain an intimacy similar to that of The National, Warpaint and Bon Iver.

The band started as a project of Katie Sawicki, a former-folksinger from Brooklyn. After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2008, Sawicki sought out musicians to collaborate with, leading her to musical partner Zanny Geffel, an orchestral drummer, rooted in jazz and percussion. Newest members, Jean Mastaler and Kelly Clifton create the band’s strings and bass section.

The Cabin Project's newest album, "Decenter" was released January 31st, 2019. It was recorded by engineer Josh Powell of The Map Room Studio in Portland, Oregon, and mastered by acclaimed NYC based Sarah Register.
