Ashia and the Bison Rouge, Led to Sea, and Grey Anne will grace the stage with sets of their music.
Ashia and the Bison Rouge (Ashia Grzesik's from PCP and Vagabond Opera debut solo project name!!)
"Captivating" Portland Mercury
"Cellist and Singer, Ashia Grzesik... is a three-ring slyph, a vaudeville dervish, a woman after our own hearts.Aptly entitled Bison Rouge (her new EP), it ranges from parlor popular to European avante garde. It is beautiful." Seattle Pi. She has performed with Cirque du Soliel's "O" production, received a Drammy, 2010, for her original compositions for Third Rail Theater's, "The Gray Sisters", and performs her solo act extensively as well as with Vagabond Opera and The Portland Cello Project. Her songs and compositions reflect her longing for her Slavic roots with Chopinesque and gypsy musings and the blues, rock, and open harmonies of the New World, as well as classical infused Chamber Pop. Her style as described by Portland Monthly: "one can't help but hear a collage of influences. Ashia can certainly give Joanna Newsom a run for her whimsy, she possesses the old-world charm and quirky dramatics of Regina Spector and the cello-punk instincts of Bonfire Madigan, and her voice vacillates between the throaty alto of Amanda Palmer and the ethereal soprano of Maria Callas. Simply put, she's got a little bit of everything."
Led to Sea:
"Alex Guy (as Led to Sea) is one of those artists, like St. Vincent or Andrew Bird, who approaches pop music with the eye of a classical composer, breaking down and rebuilding pop tropes into something resembling fine art. It's a constant balancing act, combining classical and pop. But in Led to Sea's case, Guy is able to have her cake and eat it too. " Weekly Volcano
Led to Sea is the solo project of Seattle violist/violinist L. Alex Guy. She is sometimes joined by incredible percussionist Paul Kikuchi and bassist Jherek Bischoff. Her live shows have transfixed audiences from all across the U.S. and Europe.
Alex often tours throughout the U.S. and Europe with musicians such as Laura Veirs, Mirah and Jason Webley. She was also a member of the Degenerate Art Ensemble (of Seattle), an experimental-punk-grove orchestra/theater extravaganza for over five years. You can hear her viola and violin stylings on the records of numerous indie and experimental bands including Xiu Xiu, the Dead Science, The Pharmacy and Parenthetical Girls.
Originally hailing from Anacortes, WA, Anne Adams has been a mainstay of Portland music since 2003, playing under the monikers "Per Se" and "Grey Anne," and collaborating in electronica duo "Sweater." A trailblazer of the earnest, theatrical folk era that followed ironic indie rock, she's more recently expanded her endeavors to include work on the film Coraline, dinosaur tarot and arts journalism.
