Just across the river from Portland, Oregon is where singer/songwriter Chad Bault now calls home. Not too far away from where he cut his teeth as a performer. But that was many years and hundreds of performances ago. His perennial involvement in touring and recording has made him fans across the US and beyond. As a solo artist he has released two EPs, one full length album and been featured on several compilations. After taking a break to spend time with his family during the pandemic, Chad has returned to performing with a mountain of new material. His live shows, a mix of barn-burner folk rock and soul-crushing balladry, still feature that remarkable voice that inspired the Portland Tribune to say “Whether at a whisper or full volume, Bault has that rare ability to stop conversation and turn every head in the house in his direction…”
Veteran songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Mike Coykendall has been amazingly prolific over the last three decades or so. Currently most well known for his duties as a sideman, producer, and recordist via his work with M Ward, Blitzen Trapper, She & Him, Annalisa Tornfelt, & Tin Hat Trio, to name a few, Coykendall has been making his own unique outsider records since the mid ’80s.
