Fanno Creek, Melville, Bevelers

Fanno Creek

"Quinn Mulligan and Evan Hailstone's vocal harmonies reflect their life long friendship and years of musical collaboration, while Dane Brist supplies the perfect rhythmic equation to produce tune after tune that you can't help but dance to. Fanno Creek is of the rare breed of bands that can play a set that fools you into thinking every song they play is your favorite song -- until you hear the next one. Their music translates the struggles of young adulthood into folk rock gold, reminding you that you're not the only one with a shitty job, or lost in unrequited love, or searching for meaning in the modern dystopia; rather you're surrounded by friends who fundamentally get it, and can channel the angst into a musical style at once reminiscent of Fleet Foxes, the Avett Brothers, and Paul Simon."
-Cassandra Mill / Rose City Live /


Melville is the project of Ryan T. Jacobs, recently relocated from Berlin, Germany to Portland, Oregon. After more than three years of living in Berlin, playing solo shows across Germany, Jacobs decided it was time to form a band to fill out the songs he'd been performing solo for so long.

Erstwhile, the four-song debut EP, was recorded and mixed at Low Swing Studios. This album serves as a sort of time capsule for Jacobs' stay in the city he considers a second home, and a demonstration of the various facets and potential of his songwriting.
