Front Porch House Show, part 1

Hi friends!

So, upon returning to Portland after our wonderful, music-ful, sunshine-ful California tour in March, Katie and I decided to start recording a few songs, youtube style, on our front porch. Reasons being:

1) Our front porch is rad

2) We are going to miss Katie sooooooo much next fall!

3) To celebrate the springtime, and the fact that it’s possible to be on the front porch for longer than three minutes without many layers/rain gear!

4) Sometimes, if you listen closely, you can hear bagpipes playing in the background!

4.5) Sometimes you can also hear birds! Like we are Cinderella or something!

So, we hope you all enjoy some of our acoustic numbers and favorite covers! Feel free to share with friends, strangers and even your closest enemies.

Wishing you all a happy spring,

Rachel & Katie

About arbielle

“Arbielle” is a Portland indie-folk band featuring plucky songwriter-piano-player, Arbielle, a musician with wide eyes, a beautiful voice, and plenty of stories to share. Their songs range from goofy to passionate to heart-rending, reflecting the wild beauty and playfulness of Arbielle’s pacific northwest hippie upbringing, as well as the faith she has grown into. Arbielle’s mama taught her to sing rounds when she was two-years-old, and she never stopped singing since. As a 14-year-old she began composing with Portland’s “Young Composer’s Project,” hosted by Fear No Music, and at 18 she began a journey of singing her own songs from Walla Walla, Washington, to Brooklyn, New York. Now she has returned to her home state of Oregon, and dug in as a recording and touring musician living in Portland. In the winter of 2012 she gathered a talented team of musician friends to collaborate on a full-length album recorded at Echo Ridge Music, in Sisters, OR, and this year signed onto Headphone Records of Electronic Boy Productions, who released her premier full-length album this December. "Roots Grow Deep" is a sweet chronicle of growing pains, bicycles, broken families, funny coincidence, friendships, and coming home.  Audiences from Orcas Island to San Francisco have come away from her shows admiring her honesty, wondering at her unique perspective, and humming her beautiful tunes.  As an artist, she lifts up a universal human experience: what it is like to be Arbielle.  Even if you are not a small person living a big life, a teacher and a farmer, a sister and a daughter, a lover of Oregon and every person you’ve known, you will know exactly what she means.
