"Ben Larsen is a long time resident of Portland, OR where he began his music career thirteen years ago. A singer-songwriter, and multi instrumentalist, Larsen has been busy developing and producing his solo project.
His new, self produced album Turn, was developed with the support of many mainstays of the Portland music scene. With roots in acoustic music, Turn grew into a multi genre project creating both an honest and humbling space for Larsen to expand his musical palette.
Before embarking on his solo endeavor Larsen was the bandleader and frontman for acoustic roots group, Crow and the Canyon. Today he spends most of his time focusing on the Ben Larsen Band or touring as a solo act.
A guitarist, composer, mandolinist and fiddler, Larsen is always on the search for a deeper and more genuine understanding and connection to music and listeners."
"Mbrascatu a cross-pollination of numerous influences, including spaghetti Westerns, immigrant dance music of Eastern Europe, psych rock, folk, to create a unique blend of sounds. Along with bands like Calexico , Devotchka and Gogol Bordello, they infused modern indie music with a global flavor. Mbrascatu was formed in 2010 in Portland, OR by singer-songwriter and guitar player Andrea Algieri. They recorded their debut album, Mbrascatu (self titled) in 2012, followed by Tempo 2014, Elementi 2016 and Tutto Cambia 2021."
