Anna Tivel is a Portland, Oregon-based singer/songwriter with a flair for capturing intimate moments and crafting strong, narrative-driven Americana-tinged indie folk songs that invoke names like Anais Mitchell, Laura Veirs, and Gregory Alan Isakov. Raised in rural northern Washington, Tivel has shared the stage with a diverse array of artists, including Blind Pilot, Mandolin Orange, Peter Mulvey, Matt the Electrician, and Jeffrey Martin, and was a winner of the Telluride Troubadour Contest and the Kerrville Songwriting Contest. She released her debut album, Before Machines, in 2014, via Fluff & Gravy Records. Heroes Waking Up arrived in 2016, with Small Believer arriving the following year.
Alisa Amador is a connector. Her upcoming EP, Narratives, is a six-song snapshot in time. It’s a deep look at a person stumbling through life in two languages — English and Spanish — and in many states of mind about it all. Alisa’s crystal-clear vocals are so effortless throughout Narratives that it’s almost easy to forget how technically talented she is, until she moves from almost-spoken-word territory to a powerful chorus without hesitation or illustrates a repetitive refrain that’s so affecting it feels like you might want to live inside it for a little while.
“The word ‘narratives’ encompasses not only the existing cultural messages that hurt people individually and collectively,” she says, “but also the revolutionary power of writing ourselves new narratives; rejecting a culture of fear; and catalyzing a culture of honesty, bravery and self-love in the process.”
Passim acknowledges that we stand on the traditional land of the Massachusett Peoples, and want to honor their land and people past and present.
