[SINGER-SONGWRITER] Steve Hefter came to Portland in 2009 from Baltimore, and two years later, under the name St. Even, released a quietly stunning album of lyrical chamber-pop called Spirit Animal. It didn\'t really catch on locally, something that astounded my predecessor, WW Music Editor, Casey Jarman. This week, Hefter celebrates the digital release of his latest self-titled collection on Jarman\'s Party Damage Records. Again, it\'s a delicate, warmly arranged set. His songs seem to drift downward, the gently plucked acoustic guitars, wilting horns, strings and occasional barroom piano appearing to falling around Hefter\'s congested, heavy-lidded murmur like leaves in winter. It is, perhaps, too unassuming to make St. Even the next big thing in local music, but that\'s OK. For those in the know, the music doesn\'t need hype to prop it up. It stands on its own. Beguiling singer-songwriter Maria Taylor, half of dreamy Georgian duo Azure Ray, headlines.
