A Strange Bird is a Portland, Oregon singer/songwriter whose soulful, poetic songs have resulted in her being a talented mainstay in the Cruzroom Annex.  Subjects of her songs range from unrequited love on “Smoke & Mirrors,” clawing your way out of difficult times and shaky self-perceptions, and coming out an even stronger person than before on “BIMT,” and tackling the nature of a family member who struggling with dependency and being reborn with a second lease on life on “Addiction Song.” A Strange Bird’s earnest songwriting, vocal and lyrical agility, and deft acoustic guitar playing are sure to captivate as you hear her stories on Friday in the Cruzroom Annex.

Green Mountain Guild

Indie Rock/Americana

At one moment, Green Mountain Guild’s music evokes a roots-tinged, Americana aesthetic on their song “Train,” featuring soaring vocal harmonies and deep, earthy upright bass tones, and a drum part that will remind you of the best of soul songs and still at the same time sound like a sprawling Andrew Bird song.  The next thing you know, the band shifts a dark and jazzy composition, featuring haunting, ethereal keys and drum parts that intricately fit in within a brooding bass part that hits you right in the chest with their song, “Run Away,” featuring a delectable saxophone solo that croons over the latter half.  All things considered: you will be in for a real treat on Friday as they perform their eclectic songs in the Cruzroom Annex.

Leisure McCorkle

Alternative Rock

Seasoned singer/songwriter Leisure McCorkle’s trademarked brand of genre-defying alternative rock tunes about life on the road, love, meeting unlikely friends and reaching places far and near will be filling the Cruzroom Annex on Friday. Fans of The Pixies, Elvis Costello, and 90’s alternative will be thoroughly pleased with Leisure’s catalogue of songs, bringing you right back to where and how you grew up. Leisure’s songs feature well thought out, melodic guitar riffs and a driving rhythm section that is entirely his own and reminiscent of the best 90’s rock songs. Solo, or with his backing band, McCorkle’s stories and thoughts will draw your attention and keep you locked in.
