Snow Day & 3 upcoming Portland-area shows!

Hello, friends!

It’s a snow day! Wheee! Fun for students and educators, alike (sorry to everyone else who has to go to work…that sounds rough…) The other good news is, now that Katie and I are roommates again, a snow day = more time for music (baby J has been joining in with her rattle and tiny tambourine…she’s pretty impressive at percussion for a 1 yr-old, if I do say so myself…). We’ve lately been having fun working up new songs and arrangements and are excited to announce three upcoming Portland-area shows! You and anyone you want to bring are invited:
Three upcoming Portland area shows!

  • Saturday, March 16th ~ Barn Concert Series, 6:30pm, dinner potluck and concert showcasing various artists, NE Portland (email for address)
  • Thursday, March 21st ~ Spinella’s, 7 – 9pm, 436 N Main Ave, Gresham, Oregon 97030, suggested $5 cover. Enjoy a two hour set in a music-forward restaurant in downtown Gresham!
  • Friday, March 29th ~ Artichoke Music’s Friday night coffeehouse, 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm), $5 admission. Come here four local artists in an intimate setting!

Warmest regards,
Rachel and Katie

p.s. We’re trying out a new band name at the Artichoke show…what do you think of “Florence Lane?”

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.
