Portland, Oregon’s Fanno Creek have amassed a sizeable following in what seems like a short amount of time, but the band’s musical lineage can be traced back to childhood. Friends since preschool, founding members Evan Hailstone and Quinn Mulligan share a love of all things music and film, and their sense of familiarity has translated into highly energetic live shows which engage even the most jaded audience member. Rounded out by drummer, and fellow native Oregonian, Dane Brist and bassist Ethan Martin, Fanno Creek specializes in blending lush folk harmonies with hard-hitting rock and psychedelia to create their own unique brand of pop.
Fanno Creek will journey to Alaska for the first time this spring on a two-week tour around the state. Ethan Martin grew up in the bustling SE fishing town of Homer AK, and it is with a sense of delight that he is able to connect the band’s infectious and danceable music to the spirited northern folk of his youth. The limitless spring skies and mountain to sea landscape offers a fitting backdrop for Fanno Creek’s aesthetic of wildness and the unfettered human soul.
