As a babe Jeffrey Martin sought out solitude as often as he could find it. He's always been that way, and he has never understood the whole phenomenon of smiling in pictures, although he is a very happy guy. One night in middle school he stayed up under the covers with a flashlight and a DiscMan, listening to Reba McEntire's 'That's the Night that the Lights Went Out in Georgia' on repeat until the DiscMan ran out of batteries. That night he became a songwriter, although he didn't actually write a song until years later. Eventually he found his way to a writing degree, and then a teaching degree. He wrote most days like his life depended on it, all sorts of things, not just songs, but songs too. He fell in love with teaching high school English, which was fantastic because he never thought he'd actually come to truly love it. Alas, music, the tour life, was a constant raccoon scratching at the back door. And he finally had to make the hard decision to leave teaching for music. Jeffrey Martin tours full time now. He is always making music, and he is always coming through your town. He misses teaching like you might miss a good old friend who you know you'll meet again. Jeffrey has put out bunches of music since 2009, but he's most proud of the more recent stuff. He's fortunate to be a part of the great and loving family that is Fluff and Gravy Records in Portland, OR

Ada Dahli (opening)

Hailing from South Western Ontario, land of cornfields and Uncle Tom's cabin, Ada spent most of her 20's driving for the recently departed and distilling her days down into song. It was while living in a funeral parlour that Ada began to write and play music as a way to stave off isolation and the monotony of suburbia; as a way to confront and mingle with solitude. Falling seamlessly into the Americana folk-noir genre, Ada Dahli's vocals are the crowning feature of her performance - singing with more dynamics, emotion and intensity than just about anyone you've ever heard.
