Planes On Paper
"There has been no shortage of bands that sound like Planes on Paper in the last 10 years of Seattle music, which makes it simultaneously delightful and frustrating when one of them is clearly a full head taller than the others."
- Sean Nelson, The Stranger
"[...] it’s easy to see why Planes on Paper is starting to attract serious attention on the neo-folkie scene."
-Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times
"Navid Eliot and Jen Borst’s music as Planes on Paper is built around the duo’s talent for crafting layered, meticulous folk songs matched with organic, skillful playing."
-KEXP - Seattle, WA
Planes on Paper expertly maneuvers dual vocals to produce this eerie, serene, beautiful aesthetic. Their acoustic sets are simultaneously mellow and powerful.
-Fallon Schlossman, WNYC - New York

"In a modern age where indie folk groups with male/female harmonies are as common as a Starbucks on every corner, Planes on Paper offer an organic alternative, refreshing in its artistry." - The Revue
“Navid and Jen have a captured magic between them, and the result is a truly beautiful musical partnership.” - indie-music.com
"This is folk music at the highest level."
Greg Jones, editor - Ear to the Ground Music

Lenore.
The coming together of Joy Pearson and Rebecca Marie Miller as Portland’s newest folk outfit, Lenore, is serendipitous, to say the least. After individually hitting rock bottom — Pearson following her divorce and Miller after a period of destitution in LA — the pair separately turned to songwriting in the search for a still point in their turning worlds.

After several years of lending their abilities to other projects, including Saddle Creek’s The Mynabirds, and Portland’s own The High Water Jazz Band, they finally found themselves spinning on the same axis when a chance meeting through a mutual friend, Pokey LaFarge, sparked an immediate connection. A drunken night ensued, and before they’d even scoped each other’s material, they had committed.

Now, just under two years since that fateful night, and Lenore can boast having performed at legendary Pacific Northwest venues including Mississippi Studios, Aladdin Theater, and Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, as well as the Sunset Tavern, Triple Door, and Tractor Tavern in Seattle. They've opened for the likes of Eric Bachmann, Laura Gibson, and ex-collaborators, The Mynabirds, and have shared the stage with Peter Buck (R.E.M.), as well as Chris Funk and Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists).

Since Lenore's formation, Miller and Pearson have gained full-time collaborators in seasoned Portland musicians Edward Cameron (classical guitar) and Jessie Dettwiler (cello), who have contributed significantly to the evolution of Lenore's sound — a melancholic blend of harmony-driven folk with an ever present silver lining.

Lenore began recording their self-titled debut album in January with producer John Askew for expected release in September 2017. Pre-order: www.lenoresings.com/preorder
