Songwriting and recording were hot topics Wednesday night, December 30, as two members of the Portland rock band Spirit Lake dropped in at Portland Radio Project.

Adam Anderson, bassist, and Ray Yurkewycz, guitar/vocals/keys, talked about rock band dynamics – and their upcoming show at the Wonder Ballroom, January 9 – on the Rock Block,’s Wednesday night streaming radio show about musicians and their influences.

Here, you can listen to their conversation as Rock Block co-hosts Luke Neill and Teri Briggs interview members of Spirit Lake, a band that will take you from Americana to a psychedelic anthem in one album.

I host "Sounds of PDX" every Tuesday from 7-9pm.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.

I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
