BABERS is a dark pop duo in PDX (via LA) fronted by Dana Cargioli & Lisa Haagen. Soft spoken lyrics open the songs like a conversation, but then build to reveal the furthest limits of their individual vocal ranges. Their live show unlocks the brighter side of their moody writing; they are simultaneously heavy & hopeful. Their debut album, Making It Up, is now available on all streaming platforms
Shy Honey is an up and coming electro pop band out of Portland, OR formed in 2019 by lead singer and local Portland singer-songwriter, Anna Gilbert. Shy Honey’s music features epic, reverberant guitars and moody keys with a “prom night” desperation. The music is upbeat, dark and dance worthy with a subtle nod to the sounds that defined music of the 80s and 90s. Gilbert’s honey-dripped vocals float over synthy pop keys and catchy guitar riffs. Both modern and retro, catchy and experimental, Shy Honey is putting a spin on electro pop in a fresh way, garnering the attention of their hometown music community. The band played their debut show to a sold-out Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, OR. Two days later, they were asked to open for a People’s Choice Award nominated podcast, “Off the Vine” hosted by Kaitlyn Bristowe (former Bachelorette) at a sold out Aladdin Theater.
