Making it as a musician today can require a heavy helping of DIY spirit, and Tommy Alexander has that in spades. It carried the Santa Barbara born musician all the way to Burlington, Vermont, where he founded Jenke Arts, a nonprofit artists’ collective and record label, and eventually all the way back west, where he found a new artistic home (at least for the moment) in Portland. Once in Portland, Alexander connected with producer Mike Coykendall, who has worked with a slew of indie darlings, including M. Ward, She and Him and Blitzen Trapper. Alexander skillfully juxtaposes the upbeat playfulness of jangling, honky-tonk leaning instrumentals with lyrics that ring of the sadness of a fading romance. Alexander’s vocals recall the earnest warble of Conor Oberst, but expand into a unique, infectious indie rock style all his own. His honest and heartfelt lyricism come to life in his songs which will strike a chord with you the very first listen.
Evan & the Live Oaks
Evan & the Live Oaks
Evan Lanam started singing in the 1st grade as a choir boy at St. Matthews Catholic School in San Mateo, California and since has been an active contributor to the San Francisco Bay Area music scenes, playing in numerous bands, usually as a drummer, and back-up vocalist. After hundreds of shows, and years of supporting a variety of amatuer and professional bands, Evan finally started finally his own group, consisting of the original material he has been writing over the years. Lately, the Live Oaks are in full force, and has become Evan's focus, they just got back from their 3rd Nationwide tour where they did 25 shows in 30 days opening up for Tommy Alexander.
