In just short of a year in Cambridge, MA, 23 year old folk singer Vikesh Kapoor has already made waves in New England. Featured on billboard.com as an artist-to-watch, he has trekked through two regional tours this past summer in support of his recent, debut EP âOn the Tail of a White Donkeyâ spreading his Dylan-channeled music throughout the land. The Boston Globe writes, "At first glance Kapoor looks like the second coming of iconic troubadour Woody Guthrie. And when he opens his mouth, you think he just might be." John Shadeâs debut album, All You Love Is Need, was recorded at Bon Iverâs studio (A.K.A. April Base) in the fall of 2009. It was recorded/engineered by Nate Vernon and features Jeremy Boettcher (bass), Ben Lester (drums), and John DeHaven (trumpet). John says he's bringing a string quartet with him for this special Portland show! Wesley Allen Hartley and the Traveling Trees is the new country-fried project of the former frontman of Dead End Armory, delving deeper into the Portland transplant's Texan roots.
