Nash BrothersNash Brothers
We were born and raised in The City of Roses, Portland, OR, but our hearts beat to the sounds of country life. It began by going on road trips, camping, and fishing with our family, listening and singing to country music classics. In 2012, the fire of country music was lit in us, we started playing every available moment of every day! From then on we had a dream; that was to be on stage in front of thousands of fans, who share the same love for country music that we do.

Adrian H And The WoundsAdrian H and The Wounds
ADRIAN H AND THE WOUNDS are your post-goth storytellers. The immediate reference to their dark, brooding music with lyrics of great narrative power and poetic bent, draw to mind references such as NICK CAVE, GARY NUMAN, and LOU REED. However, they are eclectic enough to keep up. It would be better and more exact just to say that they’ve blended and absorbed all of their influences and out came with their own superb poignant dark-wave style. Adrian H and The Wounds have a sound that is sinfully soulful and reminiscent of a night in a darkroom full of hallucinations, secrets and song. Adrian's voice and lyrics cut like a straight edge. He evokes impassioned stories of tragic love, lost faith, and twisted taboos.
