Marv Ellis & We Tribe
Marv Ellis & We Tribe
Conscious, genre defying, & inspirational NW Hip-Hop. A uniquely fresh blend of Stand-Up Bass, Saxophones, Turntables, ASR-10 Drums, & Marv Ellis Lyricism. Five masters uniting together to form the WE TRIBE for one purpose; to have fun and bring forth the art. Their latest album is packed with thought provoking ideas, big beats, beautiful jazz, and represents the honest and raw Northwest lifestyle. Their high energy show moves the crowd and illuminates the room with positive vibes.

Oregon Born and Internationally known.
Worth
Worth
Just one year after the critically acclaimed release of 'Six Foot Soul', Portland Oregon-based folk-soul alchemist WORTH is hitting the road again with a brand new album and an electrified 5 piece band.

WORTH's sophomore record - 'Two'- is the 2nd concept piece in a trilogy titled 'The Identity Tryptic' which he plans to complete by late 2014. Like the first album, 'Two' takes the listener on an epic journey through as wide a range of emotions as it does genres. 24 tracks in all (12 songs and 12 interludes), the album was recorded mostly live to 2" tape in just two and a half weeks. Psychedelic interludes blend vocal samples over abstract improvisations and act as segues tying together a narrative in song. The compositions are simultaneously classic and modern; the sound is rich, warm, and alive.

The 2013 fall tour schedule will bring WORTH's uniquely Portland style of "bohemian blues hop" to many new markets across the Western US in Sep./Oct. (OR, WA, ID, MT, UT, CO, CA) as well as central Europe in November (Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic).

Since the dissolution of his prior full band project NIAYH (Now Is All You Have) in 2011, WORTH has played at festivals like What The Festival and Waterfront Blues Fest (OR). He has shared the stage with Allen Stone, Lynx, March 4th Marching Band, Marv Ellis, SaQi, Russ Liquid, Lila Rose and has been a repeated cast member in Portland's yearly White Album Christmas show. OPB's Oregon Art Beat recently did a full feature on him which you can view here.
