Jackson Boone
Jackson Boone
Jackson Boone is a songwriter who quietly emerged from the misty magic of Portland, Oregon in late 2013. With the help of producer Riley Geare (Unknown Mortal Orchestra), bassist Randy Bemrose (Radiation City), Violinist Patti King (Radiation City), and a few close friends, Jackson recorded his first solo album, Starlit, in the basement of a green house in NE Portland. Immediately after Starlit’s release, Boone, his five piece live band ("Jackson Boone & The Ocean Ghosts"), and Riley Geare, packed up their equipment and took off to the Oregon Coast, where they spent two weeks tracking a new record by the beach. The byproduct, Natural Changes, was self released in September of 2015.

Jackson Boone’s music has been featured by KEXP, Stereogum, Impose Magazine, and other publications. With his band, Jackson Boone & the Ocean Ghosts, he has performed at festivals like SXSW, Treefort Music Festival, Pickathon, and the CMJ Music Marathon. The band has also toured through Portland mainstays like the Bunk Bar, Mississippi Studios, and Doug Fir, as well as venues across the country.

In 2016, Jackson Boone and The Ocean Ghosts returned to the Oregon Coast to track their 3rd full length studio album, Organic Light Factory.
Cat Hoch
Cat Hoch
Cat Hoch is multi instrumentalist playing dreamy psychadelic pop songs in Portland, Oregon. With a drumming background, she's now fronting her own project singing and playing guitar with a backing band. She's been in multiple projects such as Tender Age, Appendixes, Jackson Boone, Focus Troup, Daydream machine playing various instruments.
Following the end of a relationship and a band, songwriter Cor Allen found himself soul searching. He started playing harmonium for a Hindu Guru and recording his own songs for the first time with borrowed gear, cheap synthesizers, and guitars inherited from his late father. The result is a hazy reminiscence of lost loves which takes classic pop songwriting influences and bathes them in a glow of dreampop and analogue warmth.

Cor heard the guru say “everyone is sinless in their true nature” during a talk and it stuck in his head. Needing a fresh start, he packed his car with only his music gear and came to Portland to start a band called Sinless.

Cor joined forces with Portland psych-folker Jackson Boone, playing lead guitar, until Sinless was fully formed. The band features members Pete Bosack (also of Mothertapes and Loch Lomond) on bass, John Walsh (formerly Palace Fiction) on guitar and synth, Lynn Nicholson (also of Land of the Living, formerly Fen Wik Ren) on drums, and Chelsea Smith (also of SewBlue) on keys and backing vocals.

Sinless are currently working on their debut album with Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Riley Geare due for release next year and have another home-recorded EP on the way.
