BLOSSOM
BLOSSOM
Blossom has recently been fulfilling her namesake – with roots in Trinidad & Tobago – she has bloomed in the Pacific Northwest's music scene.

Born into a musically inclined family, she embraced the stage naturally at the age of 12. For many years she performed alongside her uncle with his traveling steel drum band.
.
Upon moving to Portland, she has developed the identity of a unique songstress. Her first serious moments of vocal talent were as a backup singer for an R&B artist in 2011 which led her to write songs of her own. Blossom’s jazzy neo-soul inspired voice and meaningful lyrics have found her in the favor of Portland’s underground hip-hop scene.
Sheers
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.
