Shannon Entropy
Shannon Entropy
Welcome to Shannon Entropy - the most intricate music that you’ve ever tapped your foot to. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, their sound can be described as a perfect mix of ambient/electronic sounds similar to The XX, and technical math-rock akin to that of This Town Needs Guns. Throw in the beautifully-mixed vocal stylings, and you have a sound so unique and pleasing to the ear, you’ll have to hear it over and over again to believe it.

The beginnings of Shannon Entropy can be traced back to Yakima, Washington with the indie/grunge band known as Fire Team Bravo Bravo. Almost from inception, they burst onto the abomination that was the Yakima music scene with both force and fervor, and quickly became the most well-known and sought-after act in the area.

After maneuvering through a line-up change that saw the departure of their original drummer, they continued to expand their horizons. They booked numerous shows in Seattle-based venues like El Corazon and Studio Seven, opening for nationally-recognized bands such as Miss Derringer (L.A.-based rock band) and BigWheelStuntShow (Washington-based blues/rock band).

In 2011, they travelled to Fastback Studios in Seattle to independently produce and record their debut EP, “Pickup Truck Full of Blood”, with producer Jason Lackie. The EP was primarily distributed throughout the Yakima and Seattle areas and was met with rave reviews. It was also picked-up by a local independent radio network shortly after its release. Following the release of the EP, Fire Team Bravo Bravo amicably split and went on an indefinite hiatus.

Fast forward to 2014, and you are presented with Shannon Entropy. Featuring a new name, new lineup, and a new sound, they are ready to re-establish themselves as a powerhouse of the Pacific Northwest. They are currently booking larger Pacific Northwest-based shows and are preparing to record their debut EP in Portland. They have plans to independently mass-produce and distribute it to the Pacific Northwest and beyond in early- to mid-2015. Their long-term goals include touring nationally and sharing their music with the world.
Mood Beach
Synth Pop, Disco, Dance - Portland, OR
Sheers
Sheers, an art pop duo fronted by Lily Breshears, coaxes listeners into otherworldly piano riffs and time feels with her memorable melodies and hip-hop grooves played by jazz drummer Grant Pierce. After years of being a backing musician for groups such as Haley Heynderickx and Big Haunt, Breshears sought to combine the thoughtful lyrics and emotional catharsis offered by those songs with the tension-laden music she plays as a classical harpist and pianist. "Depth," the single from Sheers' debut eponymous EP set to be released in September 2016, can be found on the 2016 PDX Pop Now! compilation.
The Wild War
The Wild War's eponymous LP floats with bold songwriting, deep grooves and undeniable musical talent. Featuring 3 strongly connected musicians in a classic blues trio setup, the album nods to a sense of 60's reminiscence built on a modern psychedelic indie-rock platform. The crashing rhythms, heady songwriting, and exceptional execution prove The Wild War will continue to hold their own.
