Alela Diane recently held a special concert at The Old Church in downtown Portland, Ore., to celebrate her new album, About Farewell. Watch Diane perform “Lost Land” with the aid of a string section, from opbmusic.org.
Rose City jazz pianist Ben Darwish teams up with sisters Katelyn and Laurie Shook (a.k.a. Shook Twins) to form a smoldering jazz-rock outfit that brings to mind Steely Dan, Sade and other smooth, slow sounds. Watch Morning Ritual perform “So Cold” live at opbmusic's studios in Portland, Ore.
The season is a-changing, and Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel have just the tune for the drop in temperature. Watch the Helio Sequence perform “October,” the shimmering lead single from its first album in almost five years, at OPBmusic.org.
It’s Oktoberfest! “Pints of Guinness Make You Strong,” “Thirsty and Miserable,” “There’s a Tear in My Beer” — it always helps to a have a good beer-drinkin’ soundtrack. So we teamed up with opbmusic.org in Portland (America’s microbrew capital) to present a limited-time music channel devoted entirely to songs about beer. Prost!
