Swatkins is a ginger-bearded smiley musician guy. His music generally sounds like a good time. This multi-instrumentalist is a master of the talkbox, an old-school analog effect using his larynx to shape the sound of a keyboard synthesizer.
The 25 year old, Portland native, Moorea Masa, brings an organic Northwest vibe to the more traditional R&B sounds. Profoundly moving, she blends sumptuous soul together with stripped-back folk harmonies. She has toured nationally as a solo act, and worked as a featured vocalist and backing singer with an array of artists, including KD Lang, El Vy, Allen Stone, Nick Waterhouse,The Decemberists, Ural Thomas and the Pain, and more. She released her debut EP last May, and is set to release her next album in collaboration with producer Jmost (Emily King) next Spring. "Her voice is a charming blend of silken tonal clarity, luxuriant phrasing and perfectly weighted power and restraint, she coexes the listener an instinctive emotional response and she seduces with her tenderly emotional delivery" (Next2Shine)
