Pacific Northwest Indie Folk Rock at it's Best The Weather Machine, Ezra Bell
Thu, Jun 22, 2017 at 9pm
On April Fools Day 2013, Portland-based project The Weather Machine released their first full-length album after a blustery winter of recording on the Oregon Coast. With its strong ties to the region, the band roots itself firmly in a Pacific Northwest folk aesthetic, but holds on tight to a hard-hitting love for alt-rock. The result is wonderfully hard to categorize – The Weather Machine has been compared to everything from The Kinks and Josh Ritter to Hey Marseilles and Cake.
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. Ezra Bell has released two EP's, Don't All Look Up at Once, 2013, and We Came by Canoe, 2014. Recently signed to Cinder Cone Media, a third release, Farewell Griffin, dropped in September, 2016.
