Brown Calculus
Brown Calculus
Brown Calculus - Two spirits, sprung forth from the same body in a past life, we have traveled through time and space, reconnecting as two separate hosts on planet Earth and embodying the intergalactic values of jazz and unity.
Indira Valey
Indira Valey (Portland, OR) is an avant garde multi-instrumentalist and performance artist who channels powerful songs that reverberate with the voices of her ancestors and speak directly to modern audiences. Her ancient-sounding, resonant voice is a force of nature, and she utilizes looping technology, effects pedals, and a unique palette of instruments (including flugelhorn, timpani, kalimba, electric guitar) to create mesmerizing and memorable live performances that are ever-changing due to her spontaneous improvisational magic.

Her debut album Recordar is a bilingual collection of oceanically soothing, powerfully healing songs about memory and finding your own inner power. In Spanish, "recordar" means both "to remember" and "to pass back through the heart.
Forest Veil
Forest Veil (formerly known as Moniker) is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist/producer Monica Metzler, based in Portland, OR. Following the echoes of her elusive muse, Forest Veil makes mystical "doom-folk" that maps the emotional terrain of humanity and its place in the cosmos.

Melding a voice that sounds like smokey quartz with psychedelic guitar riffs, and enigmatic lyricism, Forest Veil’s sound evokes a haunting nostalgia for other worlds and connects her in a web of resonating strings to the troubadours of time. Though she writes and records on her own, Forest Veil plays live shows with a full band (drums, bass, guitar, and keys/synth).
