12/10 Chris Pureka, Lana McMullen

"It’s rare for an artist to bridge the divide between critical acclaim and dedicated fanengagement. Chris Pureka is a Portland-based singer-songwriter whose body of workhas resonated deeply with these seemingly disparate milieus. Her bold vulnerability inprocessing the intimacies of her life in song has long appealed to those listeners whocrave authenticity. Now, five years coming, she shares with us another powerful entryin her life’s work, her sixth release, the aptly titled, Back in the Ring. 
Chris’s elegant emotionality as a vocalist, and her flair and immediacy as a lyricist havegarnered her favorable comparisons to Gillian Welch, Ryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen,and Patty Griffin. She’s earned accolades from such distinguished taste-making outletsas The New York Times, Paste, Magnet,, and The AllMusic Guide. She’sshared the stage with such diverse and esteemed artists as Dar Williams, TheLumineers, The Cowboy Junkies, Gregory Alan Isakov, Martin Sexton, and Ani the way, Chris has remained fiercely independent, selling nearly 50,000 albumsthrough her own label, Sad Rabbit Records." - Artist Bio

"A lanky, *****, flat-picking, operatically trained soprano gone rogue, alt-Americana singer/songwriter Lana McMullen has been described as an artist “who stands above a breadth and depth of artistic substance that is hard to ignore” (mxdwn). Her music's political undertones and overarching themes of distance and loss recall trailblazers such as Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman - actively inviting the listener to explore how values determine one's personal identity, and how identity shifts when one's values are challenged" - Artist Bio
