Horse Feathers
Horse Feathers
It's funny how music you've never heard before can elicit overwhelming nostalgia. From the moment you hear Portland-based Horse Feathers singer Justin Ringle's croon on their latest album's opener "Curs in the Weeds," it's hard to forget times of serene happiness in your life. Ringle's mumble conjures up surreal scenarios of Tracy Chapman doing Sam Amidon, minus any vocal enunciation; rather, it's the otherworldly music that causes one to get lost in cerebral trauma while driving home alone at night. To be direct, the sound of this album is nothing short of beautiful. Peter and Heather Broderick's string arrangements mimic Aaron Copland's most tender moments, and over Ringle's guitar strumming, the impact is enough to cause the White Witch's icy heart to melt.KillRockStars
Hollow Wood
Hollow Wood
With roots in earnest and truthful music, Hollow Wood maintains a balance of intimacy and power that blend together to create an incredibly engaging musical experience. Formed in Boise, Idaho in 2010, Hollow Wood consists of an organic and consistently evolving lineup of musicians who are devoted to expressing music in an honest way. Morgan Schuler of KEXP in Seattle writes, "Even now, I can remember being wrapped up in it as the crowd cheered, danced and clapped their way through the set."
Sara Jackson-Holman
Sara Jackson-Holman
Sara Jackson-Holman, a Portland Oregon native, was raised in the quiet town of Bend, Oregon. Her voice smoky and warm, she sings of the things that fill her head: dreams, the sea and sky and trees, belonging and loneliness and love, longing and forgetting and remembering.

Her songs are haunted by the unexpected fusion of the classically influenced piano, wistful strings, strange harmonies, and pop bent.

She released her debut album, When You Dream in May of 2010. She has since opened for Portland acts Blind Pilot and Horse Feathers, and played at MusicFestNW. Her song "Into the Blue" was on the season finale of ABC show Castle's season finale.

The moment her seven-year-old fingers touched the keys of her family's tired and old spinet piano, she fell in love with music. Her early inspirations included composers such as Chopin, Scarlatti, Beethoven, Soler, Schumann, and Bach, and their passion and ability to connect with their audience generation after generation. Performing at countless recitals and competitions, she became a fine classical pianist. From an early age, Jackson-Holman was also in love with reading, beautiful words, good literature, metaphors, and poetry. And ever since she could speak, she loved to sing. In the March of 2008, she began to reconcile her love of piano, poetry, singing, and pop music, and became fascinated with this medium of communication that so happily married her favorite passions.
