Sunday, January 28 Moorea Masa & The Mood Music Video Premiere, Siren & The Sea, Blossom at Mississippi Studios

Moorea Masa & The Mood will premiere the video for new single, “I Can’t Tell,” an intimate video to show “there is nothing wrong with owning that we are sensual beings. The more we embrace love that truly nourishes us, the better the world will be.”

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.

Watch another video of the song directed by Jon Meyer, founder of Vanjam Productions.

Blossom sings eclectic soul shaded with Trinidad and Tobago. Watch her latest video, Black Magic Woman. As Jenni Moore says, “If you’ve been paying attention to Portland’s music scene, there’s no way you haven’t heard her name. For the last couple of years, Blossom—AKA Keisha Chiddick—has lit up countless stages, converting casual onlookers into fans with her lovable personality and soulful voice.”

Cristina Cano is a writer, vocalist, and performer dedicated to crafting rich melodic soundscapes, as well as engaging intimate and vulnerable experiences. Siren and the Sea embodies a world of seemingly underwater and other worldly symphonies highlighted by lush vocals, layers of rich synthesizers, bass, electronic drums, and pedal steel and baritone/ guitar.

Jen’s Picks:

 

Saturday, January 27 Queen Chief, Foxy Lemon, Fire Nuns at Doug Fir

If my “other” were in town, I’d probably take her to this show, ’cause she likes live music you can bounce to, that’s authentic and messy and everyone is totally into it – Queen Chief, Foxy Lemon & Fire Nuns sound like they’d fit that bill! Luke Neill had Foxy Lemon on a recent episode of Sounds of PDX, along with artists pseudoboss and The Pining Hearts.
