Since 2009, Ezza Rose has been cultivating a sound of her own. Drawing on several influences from the likes of Etta James, Stevie Nicks, and her residency in Portland, Ezza writes and performs music which reflects the listeners’ lives back at them while hinting at a new perspective. The fluidity of love, the ebb and flow of relationships, and getting caught in the machine of expectations and technology, all are deconstructed with flowy rhythm, aggressive electric guitars, and dreamy vocal melodies.
What happens when you combine the female forces behind projects such as Duover, Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, Point Juncture WA, Ioa, Great Wilderness, and Sallie Ford? This is where Bitch'n brews. The fresh, all-woman punk-meets-pop five-piece came together in spring 2015, recording epic free jams that they later wrote lyrics over. Including Rebecca Rasmussen, Amanda Spring, Emily Overstreet, Nefertiti Porter, and Shana Lindbeck. Bitch'n is equal parts Fugazi and Tom Tom Club, with the playfulness of Dirty Projectors and Hot Chip, keeping it bumpin' with catchy songs accented by dark bass, psych-pop guitars and keys, driving drum beats, and all five women's voices singing and sometimes shouting in unison. Experimental in nature, Bitch'n expertly weave a tapestry through their songs, keeping the project from falling into a single box, while simultaneously following a cohesive thread.
Kendall Core is a singer-songwriter based in Portland, Oregon who writes raw emotional lyrics of self-reflection and overcoming, carried through beautifully haunting vocal melodies and electric guitar.
