Siren and the Sea
Siren and the Sea
Cristina Cano is a writer, vocalist, and performer dedicated to crafting rich melodic soundscapes, as well as engaging intimate and vulnerable experiences. She has been seen on stage playing keys for Sallie Ford, and Albatross. In the upcoming Siren and the Sea album, ‘This Time With Feeling’, she develops a world of seemingly underwater and other worldly symphonies highlighted by her own lush vocals, layers of rich synthesizers, bass, electronic drums, and pedal steel and baritone/ guitar.
Small Million
Small Million
Portland duo Small Million (Ryan Linder & Malachi Graham) met on the dance floor and got busy polishing their moody, lyrical synth pop. Rich, textured tracks with soaring melodies; wistful and cautiously optimistic.

Since their song Six Feet was selected for the PDX Pop Now! compilation in 2014, they have been hard at work crafting songs that blend Malachi's melodic roots in Americana with Ryan's eclectically influenced electronic layering. They released their debut EP, Before the Fall, in June 2016 and were called one of "Five Portland artists to watch" by Vortex Magazine.

"Graham wails over Linder’s electronic pulses as myriad harmonies swirl on the EP—the juxtaposition is beautifully cohesive, nostalgia-soaked and demurely danceable.." —Vortex Music Magazine
Amenta Abioto
Amenta Abioto
Songwriter, producer, and actor, Amenta Abioto is on the cutting edge of all that is musical, theatrical, and literary. Her music is boldly mystical and soul-fired, and her raw live performances invoke elements of both theatrical surprise and magic through ancient African diasporic sounds and stories. Weaved into syncopated rhythms and dichotomies of comedic proportions, Amenta surprises and tantalizes audiences with mind bending ideas. She brings to the music scene funky academia while skipping vocally from soul shaking gospel to smooth jazz and then onto hip hop rhythms wrapped in West African beats.

Graduating from Idllywild Art’s Academy in 2010, she trained in musical theatre. Since graduating she has courted the music scene and produced one self-titled EP, Amenta Abioto , and one upcoming album, Opening Flower Hymns. Receiving inspiration from the best-seller work Women Who Run With the Wolves, mythological characterization and cultural stories are reflected in the original works of Amenta Abioto.
