Portland area native Lee Walker is a drummer with a penchant for songcraft. In early 2022 Lee decided to put a band together to bring their songs to life and the Sleep Talkers were born. A group of well rounded and passionate musicians who also happen to be lifelong friends, Lee Walker and the Sleep Talkers have evolved beyond the projects singer songwriter origins to bring you a unique brand of honky tonk heartbreak steeped in self-actualization that is sure to make your boots scoot and your heart swell.
Known for the unique juxtaposition of her wry wit and ability to pen a heartbreaking ballad, Rose Gerber is the spark-wielding title character in Portland’s homegrown alt/country rock band, Rose Gerber & Sweet Relief. Like so many PNW bands, born in a garage during the rainy season in 2017, a labor that consisted of the blue-ribbon twang of their trio of guitars (pedal steel, acoustic, and electric), and Rose’s smooth Americana alto. Together, the five-piece band is a melting pot of essential American sounds, bringing a high lonesome rock vibe to the familiar sound of the pedal steel whine. Think Natalie Merchant-fronts-The Cardinals.
