Preview: POWERS and James Hersey


POWERS are more than a couple gorgeous faces with a heavy, mystical name. And it’s not just a cleaver name either. The LA by way of NY duo truly can summon movers of all stripes to the dance floor with their upbeat, infectious electro-pop sounds. They’ve penned songs for pop stars Kylie Minogue and Selena Gomez, played major festivals like CMJ and Bonnaroo, and have toured with the X Ambassadors and Seinabo Sey. And now with their upcoming debut album Alpha due out this fall, the Nylon Music Tour brings them through Portland on Wednesday April 5 with a performance at Holocene.

Co-headlining the event, multi-instrumentalist James Hersey hails from Vienna, Austria and delivers hook-driven electro-pop. With two very danceable, earworm singles and handful of remixes available for listeners, Hersey’s debut EP Pages is due out in May via Glassnote Records. Purchase tickets in advance here.
