About Ezza Rose Band:
In March 2014, Ezza Rose released her first solo album, Poolside. True to its name, Poolside takes the listener down into the depths of an abandoned indoor swimming pool, hidden in the basement of one of Portland’s historic, downtown hotels. With floor to ceiling tile and an empty concrete pool, the natural sound and acoustics of this room are stunning. Inspired by the sound of the room, Rose decided to record a live album in the space. To minimize interruption from city traffic above, Rose and a small crew recorded Poolside during the quiet hours of 11pm, ending the sessions around 7am. All reverb and sounds heard on Poolside are untampered with and completely raw. Lance Andrew Leonnig, recording engineer and current bassist for the Ezza Rose Band, perfectly captured the magic of this unique space and its undeniable compatibility with Rose’s haunting voice.
The current Ezza Rose Band lineup is Jessie Dettwiler (cello), Adam Mack (drums), Arthur Lee (lead guitar), and Lance Leonnig (bass).
“Her beautifully delicate, mournfully classic voice floats amongst the loosely bound, misty particles in the air and our minds and fills the cracks with a sound that's chilling and comforting, all at once.” -Vortex Music Magazine

About Jamaican Queens:
Jamaican Queens is a four-piece pop act based out of Detroit. A songwriting collaboration between Ryan Spencer & Adam Pressley, rounded out by percussionist Ryan Clancy and keyboardist Charles Trees, the band has quickly become renowned for their effortless ability to combine classic pop hooks with some of the more abrasive elements of grime & industrial music.
“Jamaican Queens are three guys from Detroit who excel at making an impossibly catchy brand of trappy pop”
--Pretty Much Amazing
"Detroit based indie electro rock group Jamaican Queens has knack for blending trap percussion with driving indie electro sounds and compelling vulnerable vocals. Their sound is unique and ever evolving creating a vast platform for experimentation."
