Getting Back on the Bike

Getting Back on the Bike

How Brent Cowles moved forward through music
Brent Cowles is a modern mix of soul that sticks. To me, he's like a quality peanut butter: His unique tone can get down to the gravel – that's the chunky, if you will.

One Show, One Song at a Time

PJ Moon and The Swappers draw from life experience on the road—and much more
The debut album of PJ Moon and The Swappers, "Memoirs of Living in a Car," was released last October. The album is an 11-track mix of everything—rock, soul, funk—and even a little bit of country.

Artist Fact Sheet: Andy Frasco & The U.N.

Andy Frasco brings his undeniable passion for music and life to Bend
Andy Frasco & The U.N. aren't your typical jam band—and they'll tell you that. Frasco previously described the group as "a punk rock band for the jam scene" in an interview with the Live For Live Music website.

Record Store Day 2019

Recycle Music and record lovers relish the twice-a-year holiday
Somewhere in the pantheon of the best holiday rankings, Record Store Day is up toward the top. Not only is it a nostalgic practice for some, but it's a great way to support an industry that most probably figured would be dead by now.

Dancing with "Wolves"

Precious Byrd's second-ever EP comes out April 13
The boys of Precious Byrd have become a staple in the Pacific Northwest, and Central Oregon especially. It's a wonder that they've only put one project before this, with 2016's "Superphonic Magical" EP, but here they sit – a Bend symbol representing nights danced away to funky grooves.

The Excellence of Murs

Hip hop lovers old and young should still be listening to this indie legend
I first found Murs 10 years ago while watching MTV. His "Rock The Vote" spots kept coming on in between my shows, during the heat of the 2008 election—coming in conjunction with the release of his album, "Murs for President."

A Year of "Bark Your Head Off, Dog"

The Hop Along's Mark Quinlan reminisces
Business is booming for the Philadelphia-born band Hop Along. With a long run of tour stops ahead (playing The Suttle Lodge three days before hitting Coachella), the band has grown in many ways they never knew they could.

Artist Fact Sheet: Mason Jennings

The singer-songwriter makes his way to Bend
Some artists have works that sound timeless. Some have careers that span decades.

Classically Modern

The Dip balances old school sounds with a 2019 spin on its latest album
There's something special about the big-band era. Hearing every instrument fire off sounds to execute the perfect song has an unmatched energy, one you might not find today if you're not looking for it.

Four Favorites: "Deepest Light"

A sneak peek at The Get Ahead's upcoming album
Portland band The Get Ahead is a close-knit group of musicians. They're five close friends, including two couples—one of which just became new parents.

On The Road With Dad

Mystic Marley is just getting started
