HOLCOMBE WALLER - Holcombe's new album, Into the Dark Unknown, is a work many years in the making, capturing much of the music from his 2008-2010 touring theatrical performance of the same name (commissioned by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, among others). This collection of songs has an intimate chamber-folk quality showcasing Holcombe's emotional tenor vocals and astute, poetic lyrics.

SOPHE LUX featuring Todd Haynes's sister, Wendy on vocals. This operatic pop band came onto the music scene in 2004. Since then, the band's tumbling melodies, trippy lyrics, eclectic instrumental arrangements, and all-out pageantry have dazzled. Sophe Lux will be premiering songs from their upcoming album.
