Melville - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Melville
Portland band Melville’s initial offering, the EP entitled Maquette, was exactly what the title’s definition would lead you to believe: a small, preliminary model. However, when the churning opening riff of their debut full-length album, The New Zero, explodes to life, it’s clear that this prior model has been blown up in order to make room for what’s to come.
Miriam Tamar - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Miriam Tamar
Fusion vocalist and songwriter Miriam Tamar creates empowering, expansive soundscapes that journey through the intense colors and vibrant rhythms of world culture. Her songs mingle the vivid textures of alt pop, R&B, electronic, folk, dance and world music that reflect her travels around the globe and the emotional journeys she has taken. In her recordings and live performances, Miriam’s otherworldly voice dips beneath and floats above sparkling instrumental layers. By mixing contagious melodies and harmonies with bold beats and personal lyrics about the love, sorrow, joy and hope that connects humanity, she inspires others to be courageous and explore the magic of unexpected, energizing experiences that push them beyond borders. Miriam incorporates the instruments of both the western and eastern world into her music, which reflects her passion for cultural exchange and chronicles her own evolution as a conscious artist and passionate humanitarian.
