Pick's Picks: Bend Roots 

A few picks for bands to check out at Bend Roots, with a little help from the fest's founder

Bend Roots Revival founder Mark Ransom was gracious enough to offer his take on what bands to highlight during this year's festival. I have a few of my own picks included as well, but with insider knowledge from the king of Bend Roots, you may discover your new favorite local band.

[ Bond Brothers ]

One of Bend's longest-running bands returns to Bend Roots after a long hiatus performing in the Bend music scene. The band, which plays rock-meets-R&B jams, used to play regularly, checking off each possible venue on the list. The band returns to the stage, no doubt providing some old-school Bend nostalgia. Friday, 8:15pm. 4 Peaks Stage

[ Phillip Austin and the Sleepless Truckers ]

  • Get to know outlaw country singer Phillip Austin when he performs with his band the Sleepless Truckers Sunday on the El Sancho Stage.

When a seasoned Nashville veteran decides to start calling Bend home, we can all celebrate the welcome addition to the music scene. Phillip Austin cut his teeth as a singer/songwriter in Nashville dive bars and now brings his outlaw country sound to Bend. Where's the whiskey?! Sunday, 7:15pm. El Sancho Stage

[ Sharlet Crooks ]

While technically a Portland-based band, Sharlet Crooks has roots in Bend, seeing this performance at Bend Roots as a homecoming of sorts. Corinne Sharlet's voice has a warm sound that blends with the band's new Americana sound. Think Margo Price meets Lake Street Dive. Friday, 5:45pm. Redbird Stage

[ Jess Ryan Band ]

Jess Ryan, if you read this, know you're on my radar and I'm stoked to interview you soon! The Jess Ryan Band should be on your radar, too, music fans. The female-fronted rockers can often be found inspiring both head banging and dancing at the M&J Tavern. You'll love the raw energy. | Sunday, 5pm. Black Butte Porter Stage.

[ LAIK ]

  • Submitted.

LAIK writes in a thought-provoking, classically inspired style and has performed at venues all over Central Oregon. The young singer/songwriter has been recognized by the Oregon Music Teachers Association as an Honored Composer. Expect great things from LAIK and don't miss her set! | Saturday, 1:15pm. El Sancho Stage.
