Listen: The soulful stylings of Katie Matzell’s debut EP

Portland’s soulful pop songstress Katie Matzell grew up listening to a trove of oldies records kept in her basement, a stashed library of her father’s from his days as a DJ. She cites Bonnie Raitt and Aretha Franklin as two major influences, which comes at no surprise after listening to her smoothly rich self-titled debut EP. Matzell’s voice, both effortless and simple, floats above a sea of washy keys and pocket grooves, calling comparisons to not only her influences of the past, but to her contemporaries- Norah Jones and Emily King immediately come to mind. The six track EP covers plenty of musical ground, ranging from the heady neo-soul of “Brick Sidewalks”, to the dubious funk of “On the Line”, to the gospel-blues of “Don’t They Say”. Stream Katie’s EP below. -Charley Ruddell

QuazztheKid, SKYES, and Michael Mayo Play Revolution #23 on 01.27

This Saturday on January 27th at 10:00 PM, National Sawdust will be hosting the 23rd installment of their emerging artists spotlight series "The Revolution." As with every month, the event will feature live performances from three forward-thinking and boundary-pushing NYC-based artists representing three different genres. The artists being highlighted this month are rapper and saxophonist QuazztheKid, who is as equally influenced by jazz as he is by trap rap, psychedelic synthpop outfit SKYES, and internationally renowned jazz vocalist Michael Mayo. - Alexander Beebe





A jazzy sendoff for Coco Columbia tonight

Portland is losing another one to the brighter skies of Los Angeles, and that one happens to be chaotic pop songstress Coco Columbia.

Since her debut in 2014, Coco Columbia quickly won over hearts with her perfectly crafted concoction of dreamy indie, jazz and electronic pop. It's why she was voted one of our top artists back in 2015 and has continued to end up on numerous lists as considerably one of the more eclectic artists in town. 

Those that have grown used to catching Coco Columbia's sets locally will be a bit blue at the news that tonight, she and her current band are playing their last Portland show before her big relocation to LA. Playing alongside Coco at Mississippi Studios will be one of the Deli Portland's other "best" acts LiquidLight and Childspeak, coming up from Eugene. There's no doubt that she'll be back for more sets in the future, but be sure to come out to get enough of her poppy jazz fix to tide you over.
