Portland Radio Project welcomed two members of the Portland band, Chasing Ebenezer, into the studio (remotely) to talk about their recently released album, Farewell, Innocence. They visited with Jamie Drakos on the NW Honky Tonk about life in lockdown, the album, and what shows they’ve been binge-watching. Check out the interview below to hear more!
Farewell, Innocence was recorded mostly in 2019, and titled before the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. However, it has strangely synced with the times we find ourselves in today. The band’s lyrics explore personal topics like finding strength, having hope, and saying goodbye to loved ones. Chasing Ebenezer identifies themselves as a world-music influenced rock band and shares a few musical styles on the album. They have a rousing rock song with soaring guitars and lyrics; a sweet Americana number; one tune with a bit of disco flavor; and one that sounds like a fiddler and drummer from an Irish bar stopped in to lend a hand.
You can find the Chasing Ebenezer album streaming digitally now, they plan to have CDs for purchase shortly, and are aiming to put together a short film about the album and 2020 in the future. In the meantime, you can find them performing online and as part of Artichoke Music’s Holiday show. Follow their social media – @ChasingEbenezer on Facebook and Instagram – to keep up with the band!
