Named after the small town in Oregon where they spent their summers, this pop-folk trio of siblings were born to a jazz musician dad and a theater teacher mom. The three sisters, Natalie, Meegan and Allison Closner, have graced several festival stages, such as Coachella and Lollapalooza, as well as going on tour supporting James Bay. They self-released their debut album “Native Dreamer Kin” in 2014.
Singing about refusing to compromise on a romantic ideal, their new effervescent single is searching for that one person that sparks fireworks. Taken from their latest album “The Sun”, it’s the melodic explosion from the driving rhythm, joyous guitars and their perfectly tuned harmonies that makes this high-spirited pop, folk and country mix erupt in a vibrant stadium-ready sonic blast.
Grown up in Newbridge, County Kildare, this Irish singer and songwriter studied songwriting at the BIMM Institute in Dublin. He went on to audition for renowned manager Louis Walsh, which earned him a place in the then newly-formed boy band HomeTown. After the band disbanded in 2016, he embarked on a solo career. Inspired by Counting Crows and Joni Mitchell, he debuted with “Sofa” in 2018.
Lyrically catching the moment when you have outgrown the wild, carefree parties of your youth, his new single navigates the changes which growing up inevitably bring with it. Starting slow with some bass plucks and his storytelling vocals, the track comes alive in the bouncy chorus. With a sunlit vibe from the added rhythm and fresh keys, this catchy tune is worth staying at home for.
