News around town is buzzing with the return of Mascaras, Orchestra Pacifica Tropical, Sun Angle ETC drummer Papi Fimbres. Returning just in time for spring barbeques and Treefort in newly weed legal Portland, he couldn’t expect more of a warm homecoming.
Last season of The Gritty Birds podcast ended with an interview with the dynamic artist who has been playing and exploring over in Germany with his fab wife Shana Fimbres and their duo project Dreckig.
On a personal note, Gritty Birds is also coming back, partnering with local label Self Group, continuing the DIY focus of the first season while expanding to artists and industry professionals outside of Portland. We’ve got some big things in store, just you wait.
One of the questions faced by every artist is how to sustain yourself financially. Marmoset Music, based in Portland Oregon, has sought to answer this question, connecting artists and advertising through sync licensing. In this week’s episode, I interviewed Brandon Day, the company’s artist wrangler and talent scout. Brandon shared his insights on the ins and outs of licensing, some of his favorite artists today and where to find the best bike rides in the Portland area.
