The second episode of ANNEX SESSIONS is here! Oakland duo Jesse Loren Strickman and Joshua Michael stopped by the Cruzroom Annex in Portland, OR on their recent West Coast tour. Along with a plethora of fantastic original songs, they paid tribute to Bright Eyes with this stellar cover of "First Day of My Life."
We are beyond stoked to announce our new web series Annex Sessions, filmed at Cruzroom Annex in Portland, OR. Incredible musicians, poets, and comedians of all stripes grace this stage on a regular basis, and now we're working to capture some of the best moments on film to share with a wider audience. Our first episode features Portland electro-pop...
Connie Pazienza came into the studio with guitarist Stephen Johnson and harmonica prodigy Luke Anthony. They performed a breathtaking rendition of a beautifully dark and heartbreaking original tune, "That's What You Do."

Matt Michael is a Portland based songwriter who also fronts the Oahu, Hawaii born band Sunstrokes. He came by the studio the other day and played this awesome tune he had just written, called "We're Here."
Trill LeBeau of Cosmic Serenity came by the hollow and performed a fresh tune. So fresh, he's still working on it. Or is it working on him? It's called "My Name's a Verb." Majestic creatures of the multiverse, prepare to be Trilled.
Julie & The WayVes recently swung by the hollow and played a couple of tunes by the fireplace. They played an original called "Fallen Monarch," as well as a cover by The Knife called "Heartbeat." Check 'em out!
