About this Event

Ezra Bell was founded around the irreverent and introspective songwriting of Benjamin Wuamett. Carving a wide path through the musical spectrum, Ezra Bell brushes up against folk, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and R&B.

Formed in Portland in late 2013, Ezra Bell was a changing cast of characters before settling into it's sound. Bassist Darren Moore, drummer Tom Trotter, horn player and arranger Aaron Mattison, and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Asay provide an often unsettling backdrop for the playful and sometimes vicious vocals of front man Benjamin Wuamett. According to the Willamette Weekly, “Ezra Bell flirts with a broader palette of country, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll and swing, and does so admirably, with an outlaw’s shamelessness.”

Ezra Bell has released three EP's, Don't All Look Up at Once, 2013; We Came by Canoe, 2015; and Farewell Griffin, 2016.

About Lili St Anne:

From Portland folk rock band Lili St Anne comes new single “Eveline”, written for frontwoman Elizabeth Fagan’s friend with whom she grew up and attended Catholic school, where together they explored the romantic edges of their friendship and supported each other despite the homophobic culture they swam in. After her suicide four years ago, Fagan wrote this with great tenderness for her lost friend. With vaulted melodies and unexpected syncopation, the intimate songwriting and soulfully enticing vocals of Lili St Anne envelope you in an ethereal world permeated by strains of neo-soul, 1940s jazz, appalachian folk, and human howls. In collaboration with hip-hop drummer Jason Miller and jazz bassist Sam Arnold, Lili St Anne's performances are an uncommon genre-bending experience. Each performance is a new and fresh conversation as improvisational elements bloom throughout the onstage spectacle.
