Glitterfox

The Portland band Glitterfox has released five singles in just six months under their new record label Kill Rock Stars, with two more singles arriving this spring. The band’s been growing steadily since “Drive” came out in August 2023, with their indie rock cocktail that deftly balances nostalgia-fueled anthems with Southern shine.

The four-piece band’s songwriters and frontpersons, married couple Solange Igoa and Andrea Walker, have always channeled their personal struggles as well as experiences as queer, neurodivergent individuals into their songwriting. Bassist Eric Stalker and drummer Blaine Heinonen bring a love of Americana, grunge, and dance music into the mix. All of these influences can be heard on the band’s latest singles, produced by Chris Funk of The Decemberists, and in their spirited live shows as they prepare for their full-length album debut in 2025.

Blood is thicker than water and there’s nothing like family creating music together to prove it. With contrasting blood-harmonies and left-handed/right-handed guitar playing, singer-songwriter duo The Talbott Brothers combine rock, blues and pop with honest storytelling.

 Nick and Tyler were born and raised in Imperial, a small town in Southwestern Nebraska, just a stone’s throw from the Colorado border. They began writing and performing together before relocating to their mother’s birthplace of Portland, Oregon. Tyler, the youngest (lead vocals, baritone guitar, harmonica) and Nick, the oldest (backing vocals, lead guitar) discovered their love of music after digging their dad’s old dreadnaught guitar out of the basement and teaching themselves to play along to Johnny Cash, Bob Seger and the Beatles on vinyl.

 Following the release of 2017’s GRAY, they found themselves in front of sold out crowds in the US and sharing the stage with ZZ Ward, Johnnyswim and AJR. Ear to the Ground Music dubbed the record as one of the ‘Top 5 Albums of the Year’ stating it as, “equal parts optimistic and captivating, inspiring and hopeful.” Through rigorous touring and over half a million streams on Spotify, they continue to build a strong and loyal fanbase wherever they go.

Gospel and blues, melodic sensibility, and honest emotion…

Based in Minnesota, but with roots in Tennessee, Chastity Brown grew up surrounded by country and soul music. In the full gospel church of her childhood, she played saxophone and drums and found her singing voice and a passion for music. Her first show was in Knoxville, TN, and then it was on to Minneapolis. Since then, she’s been featured on NPR’s “Favorite Sessions,” CMT, American Songwriter, the London Times, Paste Magazine and others. Chastity has toured the U.S. and abroad, appearing on the U.K.’s Later…with Jools Holland.

“A work of brooding soul eloquence, alt-rock wiriness, atmospheric pop sweetening and folk-infected naturalness.”

Tennessee Jet

Long before Tennessee Jet began crisscrossing America as a one-man band, playing nightly shows full of fuzz guitar, primal percussion, and songs that split the difference between country and raw rock & roll, he traveled the interstates of Oklahoma with his bronc-riding father and barrel-racing mother. Sitting on the bench seat of an old Ford pickup truck pulling a horse trailer while heading to the next rodeo, he’d watch the grasslands of his home state fly past the windshield at highway speed. Country music was always on the radio back then, and those songs — honest, heartfelt classics by icons like Willie Nelson and Dwight Yoakam, both of whom he’d eventually join on tour — left a permanent mark.

 “I got a head full of metal, but a heart of country gold.”  
                           –Tennessee Jet

Jade Jackson

Jade Jackson was born and raised in the small central coast town of Santa Margarita. Family and music have always been the center of her life. As a young girl, her father was always playing songwriter-heavy records in the home. Both the family restaurant that she worked at and the house that always had a guitar accessible.

 Growing up in a household without television or internet, the family record player was her main source of entertainment, revolving a range of artists from Johnny Cash and Hank Williams to The Smiths, The Cure and assorted punk outfits. Now the stage is where Jade feels most at home and where she’s able to share lyrically crafted stories with her fans.

 Released in May of 2017, her debut album, Gilded, introduced her exceptional writing and raw, roots–rough sound. It was followed by her sophomore album, Wilderness, in 2019, and in 2021, Jackson dove into an alternative Americana sound with the Jackson+Sellers album, Breaking Point, a collaboration project with singer-songwriter Aubrey Sellers.  

 Upon moving to Nashville in late 2021, Jackson took her career back into her own hands, rebuilding the team that initially surrounded her. Jackson plans to release a new batch of singles via Bitchin’ Music Group in 2024.
