World's Finest
World's Finest
It's been a wild and crazy ride for the fellas in World's Finest, since their modest beginning as an acoustic duo in Portland, OR living rooms in 2011. With a songwriting style rooted in Americana, the band banks on their ability to transcend genres of all kinds. String-centric and bluegrass-inspired compositions seamlessly transition into 3-Dimensional Psytrance, Funk, and Dub soundscapes, leaving their audience with a full circle experience of emotion and dance. Their appreciation for punk and ska can be found peppered throughout their shows and albums, made evident by up-tempo, high-energy offerings, reminiscent of such classic acts as NOFX and Operation Ivy. Never happy to settle, Chris, Dan, Sean, Evan, and Mike continue to push through boundaries and challenge themselves, while hoping to inspire their listeners to expect the most out of what a band in the modern age can be capable of conjuring up.
Five years, countless shows, and 4 albums later, the band is still firing on all cylinders. The current lineup features 5 members: Chris Couch (Guitar/Vocals), Dan Hurley (Banjo/Vocals), Sean McLean (Sax/Guitar/Vocals), Evan Malfer (Bass), and Mike Apodaca (Drums). Their paths have all crossed in Portland, by way of Ohio, Illinois, Eastern Oregon, New York and California. As a result of such diverse upbringings, it was inevitable that the band's sound reflected their coast to coast musical influences.
The latest offering from World's Finest is a 6 song EP, entitled “We Got Ourselves a Game Here”. Taking a new approach to their recording process, the band decided to record the album in front of a live audience at Hallowed Halls Studios in Portland. The result was nothing short of capturing lightning in a bottle. The quick paced track list of Ska-grass was wholly enhanced by their fans' infectious enthusiasm and energy.
World's Finest has hit the West Coast festival scene hard, making appearances at High Sierra, Northwest String Summit, 4 Peaks, What the Festival ?!, and Symbiosis, to name a few. Their unique style has allowed them to connect with fans from all different kinds of musical worlds. In addition, their chameleon-like approach to their live show has allowed them the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as Steel Pulse, Leftover Salmon, The Motet, The Expendables, Rusted Root, The Skatalites, Fruition, and many others.
Sage Fire
Sage Fire
Born in the high lonesome mountains and deserts of Colorado, SAGE FIRE, bears the soul of the native singer and guitarist Dax Hunter Jordan. His deep voice reflects the depth of his lyrics and songwriting. The string band of talented friends is just beginning their long journey. SAGE FIRE is driven by a unique high-energy western sound and style. They draw their influences from bluegrass, folk, americana and rocknroll, used as fuel for their spiritual music fire.
That Damn Sasquatch
That Damn Sasquatch

With a balanced, progressive, and traditional approach their sound is truly their own. .
