A product of the grassroots music movement of Southern Oregon, Medford artist Arran Fagan has spent the greater part of his life pursuing music, working his way into the northwest folk scene by playing countless coffee shops and house shows for college classmates and eventually opening for northwest favorites like Leif Vollebekk, HorseFeathers, Kris Orlowski, and Jeffrey Martin. In 2015, Arran recruited fellow University of Portland students Jack Pfeffer and Jonathan Wiley, and the three worked to perfect a sparse, melodic sound influenced by their individual backgrounds. Fueled by introspective lyrics and nostalgic melodies provided by the intimate combination of viola, bass, and acoustic guitar, his music explores themes of loss, growth, and the passage of time with fresh eyes. Arran’s third album, Weight of Time, was released in January of 2018.
Jeremy Ferrara is a folk singer and guitarist based in Portland, OR. With introspective lyrics and guitar playing full of subtlety, his songs are rich with vulnerability, intimacy, and a style that doesn’t hold back. Having played in bands since he was 12, Jeremy found his voice as a solo artist in the DIY scene of Santa Barbara. Ferrara’s most recent EP “Shining Garden” was recorded live to tape in a good friend’s bedroom, and it exemplifies his songwriting in its purest form.
