Hey hey hey!
Great to get started
on a new year with new projects and great shows on the horizon! I am very excited
for what's to come this year in music and in life in general...
I continually feel so blessed to get to play music
with some of the greatest people in Portland on a regular basis. These people have been recently
deemed... wait for it....
Michele Van Kleef
Michele Van Kleef:
lead vocals/acoustic guitar
Ellis: all things guitar and friendly banter, background vocals
Bill Athens: all things bass
Ken Ollis: drums
The funny part of
this is that Bill and Ken know nothing about this new moniker, but will hopefully
be fine with it. It met happily with Tim's approval :}
