Two Upcoming Portland Shows! And…Ch-ch-ch-changes…


Dearest Friends,

Good news! Arbielle is excited to announce TWO upcoming Portland shows this month and next! You are cordially invited to both:

Arbielle at the Jade Lounge!
6:00pm ~ Friday, February 27th, 2015
2342 SE Ankeny St
Portland, Oregon 97214

Arbielle at Artichoke Music!
8:00pm (Doors open 7:30) ~ Saturday, March 14th, 2015
3130 SE Hawthorne Blvd,
Portland, Oregon 97214
$15 Cover

Which brings us to…other news!
It is with heavy and hopeful hearts that we announce that this Artichoke show will be a special one. A farewell, of sorts. While we certainly plan to sing together again someday–and hopefully soon– it looks like this upcoming year will send the Wandas in three different directions, albeit all toward wonderful things.

To console ourselves, we are pouring ourselves into these shows. We’re working up some new songs, new percussion, new recordings, and have even been collaborating with a new Wanda–cellist Emma Wood, from the Portland Cello Project, and Rachel’s former classmate!

So we do sincerely hope you can join us at Jade Lounge or Artichoke in the next few weeks, so that we can thank you in person for your support and love for the band over the past few years (or decades–shout-out to old friends & parents!). If you cannot, we thank you sincerely right now, and wish you

the happiest of trails,

With love,

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.
