Based out of Boise, ID, Ana Lete is, “a band to watch out for,” according to the Revue. Neo-indie folk singer/songwriter, Ana Lete, creates music that is authentic, emotive, and surreal. In her songs, Lete isn't afraid to sing her truths and push the musical envelope.

Lete’s songwriting journey began in January 2015, when her guitar instructor, Christi Green, passed away unexpectedly. Hit with a deep wave of grief, Lete had no choice but to songwrite to heal her pain.
But as the year continued, she found songwriting useful in capturing other aspects of her life too – from breakups to loss of friendship to memorable moments in time with friends.
By combining captivating lyrics, jazz-inspired vocals, and 2.5 years of classical guitar training from Christi Green, Lete developed an experimental neo-indie folk sound that the Revue has described as “something you would expect to see from a veteran artist." Northwest Music Scene has commented that she is “Boundary-pushing” and “woos audiences with her heartfelt and enchanting vocals.” Those who do attend Lete’s shows often find themselves emotional and teary-eyed during her sets.
In September 2016, Ana Lete released her first EP, Psychic Translation. Now, Lete is in the studio recording her debut full-length, Eternal Hibernation, which will be released in Fall 2018.

The Cabin Project, made up of four Portland-based women, is an indie rock band whose sound stems from haunting choruses, three-part harmonies, pedals, synths and string sections. The songs are musically expansive, yet retain an intimacy similar to that of The National, Warpaint and Bon Iver.
Born in an attic "cabin" studio lined with Douglas Fir, the band started as a project of Katie Sawicki, a former-folksinger from Brooklyn who became inspired by electric guitars, keys, synthesizers, and balancing all three onstage.
After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2008, Sawicki sought out musicians to collaborate with, leading her to musical partner Zanny Geffel, an orchestral drummer, rooted in jazz and percussion, with a preponderance for poetry and onstage mayhem. Rebekah Hanson, Jean Mastaler and Kelly Clifton create the band’s strings and bass section.
"Like their name suggests, the band’s sound is reminiscent of the kind of intimate space created by artists like Bon Iver. The group uses traditional orchestral and choral methods to create a track that is inexplicably modern, heavy, and pop at the same time." - American Songwriter
“…impressively educated string section with octave pedals and vocal harmonies to create music that’s both intimate and otherwordly.” – Bitch Magazine
