Gabrielle Tusberg is a singer songwriter from Portland, OR. Her inspiration comes from female songwriters like Lucinda Williams, Fiona Apple, and Sara Jarosz. Listening to Gabrielle's songs tells a story about her life experiences, relationships, love lost, love gained, a changed perspective, with wit, sadness, and charm. Her songs will make you cry and laugh with her deepest thoughts and unleashed secrets.
With time spent in bands like Arrowleaf, No Fancy, Catamount, Mendelssohn, and The Skurfs, members of Norwell have been playing music around Missoula for more than a decade. In this form, they make songs that pair smartly with hands in pockets, long stares at the rim of a drink glass, or a mirthless Twitter scroll.
Red Onion Purple began as a musical duo featuring Sean Burress (guitar) and Bethany Joyce (cello) in 2013. After a few years of experimenting with their sound and adding different members, the group coalesced into the spellbinding force that it is today with the addition of Joshua Chai (drums) and Cole Grant (bass). The ethos of the band is one of constant experimentation; treating each song as a separate world to traverse, going a little deeper with each iteration. Red Onion Purple's sound is accessible, yet hard to pin down; at times upbeat and whimsical, other times melancholy and mysterious. They play a mixture of original songs, jazz standards, and covers. Their first full-length album, 'Frightening Sights', was released in May of 2022.
