6pm Doors / 7pm Music
Who are the Songwriters in the Round….
Unapologetically raw and sung straight from the heart, the Hood River-based Kyle J. Glenn’s music juxtaposes inner monologues with triumphant declarations. Bittersweet chords collide against hope-tinged lyrics, taking listeners on a captivating sonic journey that ebbs and flows between tension and resolution.
Praised for his introspective lyrics and vivid storytelling, Portland-based folk artist Arran Fagan has garnered a following in his native Oregon with his uncanny ability to weave the personal and universal. After getting his start in the grassroots music scene of Southern Oregon, Arran has spent the greater part of his life pursuing music, creating wistful and evocative songs that explore themes that connect us all–loss, addiction, change, and the endless passage of time.
Alex Crowson is a songwriter and podcaster based in Portland, Oregon. His second EP, “Sorry, I Missed You”, is a bittersweet letter to lost lovers, dead mothers and dogs. Lush with longing and celebration, the record was written and produced against the bright and lonesome backdrop of a late Pacific Northwest spring.
John Lensing started out as a street performer, writing songs and driving around the US to play them for people. Slowly, this led to playing more proper shows, but the goal has always been the same. to make people care — about others, themselves, and things that sometimes hurt to care about.
His genre-blurring songwriting has brought him on tours all across North America and Europe. Most notably playing a showcase at the Sommer in Altona festival (Hamburg), and being named “an artist to watch” by No Depression.
