Lou Era
Lou Era is a rap artist that is here to prove that he is capable of being an upper echelon artist, not just in the North West, but in Hip Hop, period.
Refusing to be labeled as a "conscious" rapper, Lou Era has been consistent with his message since he first started recording. He gained quick attention writing thought provoking rhymes that are heartfelt and speak on the real issues plaguing our world today, while still being able to create the songs that we can all vibe and party too.
Aside from being a writer his entire life, he began to take his career seriously two years ago and has been performing around the country at prestigious venues ever since.
From rocking shows at the Spokane Convention Center, to performing at Summer Jam at the Gorge, to headlining the legendary Viper Room in Hollywood and being a Swisher Sweets Artist Project Winner ( which landed him the opportunity perform at the A3C festival in Atlanta) Lou Era is not your average local rapper. Even though he isn't conscious, he wants to leave the world "WOKE" on his sound.

Radio Phoenix
The diverse interests of the Portland-based jazz/funk trio range from backdoor Internet

programming (keyboardist Benjamin Spriggs) to theories of perception (bassist Zac Alden) to

something equally unusual (drummer Lee Hauser). A year before the trio established itself as

Radio Phoenix, Alden and Spriggs had met while performing with PSU’s Latin Ensemble. They

gigged and recorded together with multiple drummers for nearly a year before Alden and Hauser

met in a band formed by vocalist/composer Damen Liebling. Hauser sat in on a jam featuring

Alden, Spriggs, and notable Portland rapper Jah’di. Unbeknownst to the musicians, a crowd had

formed outside the rehearsal space, and the unexpected applause after the group’s first

improvised jam solidified Hauser as the third and final member of Radio Phoenix.

The band picked the name “Radio Phoenix” as the term refers to a galaxy that has formed from

the collision of two previous galaxies – and space is awesome.

Since that pivotal day in October of 2015, popular interest for Radio Phoenix has been growing

steadily. March 2016 saw the release of the self-titled EP, featuring the three core members

poking different genres without any guests, unlike the previous releases. The band looks forward

to a string of performances in the spring and summer, with another EP on the not-too-distant

horizon and a fall northwest tour before returning to Portland to eagerly kick off a thrilling 2017.
