Women Crush Music's triumphant return

 *pictured: Haley Johnsen and Kingsley

Women deserve the most appreciation ever, to be quite honest, and the kind that goes much farther than just wearing a button or posting a picture of a femme you find attractive on a Wednesday. The type of adoration and appreciation women need, especially in a time where it's becoming more and more widely realized that women are frequently abused and mistreated, is the type that Women Crush Music provides.

Founded by Ashley Kervabon, Women Crush Music is a showcase that started in early 2017 with the mission of encouraging, inspiring and exhibiting local femme singers and songwriters. Now in over 10 cities, it relaunched at the beginning of 2018 as a nonprofit, with a staff spanning from the west to east coast. Portland, its flagship city, will be the only locale chapter to host showcases every month at its new venue home the White Eagle, while the other cities will have showcases six times a year. 

“There is such a need for what we are doing here at #WomenCrush, and how quickly we’ve grown in the last 6 months really goes to show that," says Kervabon."

"By relaunching as a non-profit organization we believe we will be better able to fulfill our mission at #WomenCrush Music, which will always be to support women artists in whatever we way can. I am hopeful that we will continue to expand in the states, Canada, Mexico and then intercontinentally and I am excited to continue empowering women in music and for all of our future plans.”

Women Crush Music's first show of the year features Kingsley, Haley JohnsenEmily Aldridge, Hayley Lynn, Isabeau Waia'u Walker, Jessa CampbellMaiah Wynne, Shae Altered, and Tara Velarde.





New Track: "Train To Success" (Feat. Jo Kusy) - Brain Clouds

Dark Web frontman, Sims Hardin, dropped a new single, “Train To Success,” under the moniker Brain Clouds. Guided by acoustic guitar, while featuring backing vocals by Jo Kusy, the song sends a compliment to its subject of interest. Admiring from a distance and hoping for a second chance, there’s a delicate, heartfelt simplicity to the musical message. On Monday, February 19, Dark Web is featured on a lineup at The Sound Hole that also includes another of Hardin's projects, Throbbing ChakraLouie Louie, The Caveman, and Nice Guys.





A jazzy sendoff for Coco Columbia tonight

Portland is losing another one to the brighter skies of Los Angeles, and that one happens to be chaotic pop songstress Coco Columbia.

Since her debut in 2014, Coco Columbia quickly won over hearts with her perfectly crafted concoction of dreamy indie, jazz and electronic pop. It's why she was voted one of our top artists back in 2015 and has continued to end up on numerous lists as considerably one of the more eclectic artists in town. 

Those that have grown used to catching Coco Columbia's sets locally will be a bit blue at the news that tonight, she and her current band are playing their last Portland show before her big relocation to LA. Playing alongside Coco at Mississippi Studios will be one of the Deli Portland's other "best" acts LiquidLight and Childspeak, coming up from Eugene. There's no doubt that she'll be back for more sets in the future, but be sure to come out to get enough of her poppy jazz fix to tide you over.





Following a debut release, Joanna Teters to play Middle East Upstairs

There was a point in time when singer Joanna Teters, the now-New Yorker, was a resident of the Jamaica Plain neighborhood in Boston. While studying at Berklee College of Music, Teters became a familiar and friendly face in the Boston music scene as the smokey, soulful singer for several groups including Lowtone Society and Ila Mawana. Now, with the release of her excellent solo debut Warmer When It Rains, Teters has shared Winter tour dates throughout the East Coast, which includes The Middle East Upstairs on February 1st.

Warmer When It Rains is a collection of masterfully produced pop/neo-soul songs influenced by 90s pop/RnB, island and reggae music, and jilted hip-hop beats, lead exclusively by Teters’ smoothly crafted melodies. Rains is an exercise in writing about love within pop songs, an artform in itself that produces either everlasting, or fatefully unforgettable music; fortunately for us, Teters has delivered a lasting and engaging debut, both musically and emotionally. Stream her new album below, and be sure to check the Warmer When It Rains Tour schedule to see Joanna in a city near you. -Charley Ruddell

 





New Pat Finnerty & The Full Band LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Back in September 2015, Pat Finnerty brought his rock opera, The Lid, to Underground Arts, and now, its corresponding album is finally available for streaming and/or purchase. Step into the Brit-rock, time-warping tale and its jovially catchy tunes. “Dedicated to Brian Langan and to all of the hard working people that made the show possible.” The album balances the personally-invested storyline, within a fun, uplifting, and truly creative musical framework.
