Vocalist, songwriter & community activist
Chibia is a violinist, vocalist, music educator, and lettering/calligraphy artist based in Portland OR. She has earned a Bachelors in Music Education and a Masters of Education from Portland State University, teaching orchestra full time in Vancouver, Washington.
During her time at Portland State University, Chibia was a member of Portland State University’s Symphony Orchestra and multiple chamber ensembles, appearing on Portland State University’s Chamber Choirs’ album Erik Esenvalds: The Doors of Heaven which ranked #1 in Classical Music upon its release. She was also a part of PDX Collective, Portland State University’s jazz choir, making it as one of the top 6 finalists at the Monterey Jazz Festival in Monterey, California.
Alexis Mahler explores her softness through the dark and earthy colors of the cello, a somber strum comforted by delicate lyrics and playful melodies. Her debut EP, Low Moon, innocently reaches for the most tender and heartful listener, while following intricate, moving layers of cello, violin, and distant vocal harmonies that seem to fall exactly where they should.
Classically trained and Michigan-made, Mahler has found life in Portland to be fully grounding and inspiring. She splits her time between teaching private music lessons, performing as a solo artist, and doing session work for songwriters, both local and long-distance. Mahler has worked with Matt Costa, John Craigie, Jacob Miller, Katie Toupin, Whitney, Shook Twins, Erisy Watt, Hanna Haas, and many others.
