Jonah Luke CD Release with The Druthers, Ruby Pines

Jonah Luke

Unabashedly joyful Folk-Rock from Portland, OR

Unabashedly joyful, unashamedly playful, Jonah Luke’s music is pure sunshine. In a world of predictable pop, this Portland, OR-based singer-songwriter crafts innovative folk-rock with sweet harmonies and dashes of zydeco. At only 24, Jonah has played major stages, including premier music venues like Portland’s Crystal Ballroom, Chicago’s Millennium Park and The Metro, and he has opened for acclaimed acts such as Joe Purdy and Chris Robley & the Fear of Heights. His new full-length, Finding a Way Home, was fan-funded and produced by Portland's Peter Rodocker. The new album brings horns, zydeco accordion, and other musical collaborations to Jonah's heartfelt vocals and songwriting.

The Druthers

The Druthers make heart-sweeping folk/pop with his and hers harmony. This magnetic Portland, OR six-piece is defined by the unmistakable voices of their two lead singers—the open, weathered rasp that is his (Kirk Duncan) and the whisper-to-wail force that is hers (Erin Adkisson). The pair is accented by a song-serving flurry of trumpet, piano, organ, guitars, drums and bass that evokes the likes of Swell Season and the Civil Wars, and lives somewhere between the music of Ben Harper and Ray Lamontagne. Unmerciful, heartbreaking, uplifting and full of grace, The Druthers make moving music.

Ruby Pines

Portland-based The Ruby Pines is soul vs. indie vs. folk. Michael Backus plays a blues-minded guitar, as Moorea Masa's soulful vocals reverberate throughout, and damn: girl has a set of pipes. Whether blues, dreamy indie-folk, or a finger- snapping Gospel choir drives the back sound, it's always stripped down- the better to highlight Masa's powerful vocals. Her real talent as a singer lies in the ability to communicate a range of emotion, and the raw edge in her voice could break a heart in two. Ruby Pines is reminiscent of a different era; it begs an intimate setting. It would hurt to miss such a booming vocal talent
