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.

RON is Carl Laukkanen and Sam Wenc. In 2016 they released ‘Invisible Though Not Impalpable’ through Lobby Art Records.

Location Services are a Portland-based group, having released ‘In Passing’ and ‘Music For Quiet Rooms’ in 2016 through Beer On The Rug.
