Thanks to everyone who made it out to our show at Savoy last month. It felt great to be playing out again, especially in the company of so many friends.
The last few weeks have been really exciting around here - we were thrilled to learn that the online music community, SoundCloud, named us their SoundClouder of the Day, and featured Shapeshifters, on their blog! We’ve gotten an enormous rush of positive feedback, and are feeling very honored and grateful.
Our next show is coming up soon, on Friday, April 5th at The Waypost (3120 N Williams), with our friends green hills alone and Haley Keegan (yes, the same Haley who sings those lovely harmonies in Gallop!). She opens the evening at 8pm, so make sure you get there early. Oh, and it’s free! For more info, check out the facebook invitation and RSVP.
Enjoy the spring and its sunshine. See you Friday at the Waypost,

Check it out! We’re thrilled to be today’s Soundclouder of the Day!
SoundClouder of the Day | Gallop | Shapeshifters
Singer Calla Mapel layers her poems over string accompaniments in Gallop, a collection of artists from across America. Gallop embodies the spirit of the place where they all came together, Portland, Oregon. Lulling their listeners into nostalgia for things past, their sound echoes classic folk and makes you long for simpler times.
We like the way they’ve been communicating with other Portland bands using SoundCloud. You can listen to their Americana lullabies here: https://soundcloud.com/gallopmusic/sets/gallop

Our own Kyle Bruser handcrafted these (very) limited edition Gallop tapes for our upcoming show on Thursday! Come down to the Savoy Tavern and pick yourself up one.

It’s been a while since we’ve been in touch! We’ve had lots of exciting things happening—from airplay on Democracy Now!, to a reggae/rockabilly-style recording project, to a number of new shows over the next few months.
Speaking of which, our first show in quite some time is just a week away! We’re playing with a Portland folk favorite, Hip Hatchet, at the Savoy Tavern, (2500 SE Clinton) as a part of their *free* Thursday night music series on February 28th (the day after Jesse’s birthday, so we will be celebrating). The show starts at 9pm, and we really hope you Portlanders can make it out! Check out the facebook invitation for details and RSVP!
Does anyone remember one of Calla’s first songs, Good Lord? Well, a live recording of that song, plus a number of others (including our cover of R. Kelly’s World’s Greatest) are now up for streaming on Soundcloud! Check ‘em out, and leave some comments!
Also, be sure to mark your calendars, because we have upcoming shows on April 5th and May 18th. Details soon!
That’s all for now. See you next Thursday at Savoy, and thanks for your support.
