Hearing Brad Creel & the Reel Deel is like listening to a John Prine album while Merle Haggard is cooking in the kitchen, Gram Parsons is on the front porch, and Bigfoot is dancing in the front yard. As these artists are now dead (except Bigfoot), Brad has kept their sound alive by combining the musical styles to create a unique genre of music he calls, “Lava Lamp Country.”

Jason Wallis is a Portland singer/songwriter who calls his one man show,“Rough Diamonds”. His songs are haunted by the ghosts of Hank Williams and Buddy Holly and the sounds harken back to the Nashville Skyline era of Dylan and early Wilco. Driving rhythms, lilting melodies, and sharp lyrics are woven into a roots based acoustic tapestry.
