When: August 23 7pm - 11pm
I'm an Australian born songwriter, guitarist, and singer (in no particular order) who lives in Portland, Oregon. I have released two solo albums to date; Freshwater (2005), and Between U&I (2008). I have had the pleasure of touring throughout the U.S. and Australia playing the music I love while sharing the stage with some amazing artists and bands including Matt Kearney, Augustana, Tyrone Wells, Andrew Belle, Brendan James, SafetySuit, Go Radio, and more. In the spring of 2013, I will be releasing my third solo album, A Silent Storm. The album is my most honest work to date. I wrote with no boundaries, I wrote with no formula, and I wrote solely for the joy of making music that I love. You'll hear everything from Jeff Buckley style, electric driven ballads, to alternative country in the vein of Ryan Adams. Produced with my good friend, Peter Rodocker (Tyler Stenson, The Druthers), the album features performances by some of Portl and's finest musicians, including Ashley Peck (Kanye West), Tucker Jackson (The Dimes), and many more.
