W.C. BECK is a prolific roots songwriter and singer from Kansas who has called Portland, OR home for the last five years. Music has always been a part of his life, starting with piano lessons at the age of five. He was classically trained on violin and bass, and sang in choirs until high school, when he picked up the guitar and began writing tunes of his own. He is a charter member of Meridian, Les Flaneurs, and The Checkered Present and has played in/with Leonard Mynx, On The Stairs, Blue Giant, Pigeons, and The Portland Country Underground.
Missouri’s clearest voice since a certain steamboat pilot, Barna Howard is a meticulous craftsman. His are songwriters’ songs, weaving melody, narrative and gravity in ways only the best have. He comes to the listener like some overlooked great, reincarnated for one last shot.
