He’s got friends in lo-fi places.

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] A songwriter’s songwriter, Casey Neill has an unpretentious intelligence and depth of focus bleeding through his subtly lyrical tunecraft, which has long attracted the attentions of an array of admirers.

Jay Horton and Sarah Dylan at the 2010 PMAs, Part 2


The Pammys, part deux. This time with more Daniel Baldwin, less booze than expected, and the revelation that the "fat Baldwin" lives in Lake Oswego and knows nothing about the Portland music scene.

Fernando Friday, Feb. 13
