Felony Flats originally formed in late 2009 in Salem, Oregon. After a couple of line-up changes and continual struggles to get something established, Felony Flats finally solidified in September of 2013 when Tim Harbaugh (vocals), met Matthew Baker(guitar) through mutual friends. The two of them had an immediate musical connection and began working on material.
With Harbaugh's unique vocal style and Baker's unique abilities on the axe, it seemed to be a good match. After having a handful of songs established they decided to post a Craig's List ad for a drummer, and it didn't take long to get a reply. His name was Matt Blaylock. He was new in town, passionate about music and ready to beat the hell out of some drums. That was just what they needed. A few weeks later the final missing piece replied to the add as well. Dion Gering, a talented musician from a small town just outside of Salem. He was ready to bring the bass. Less than two months later they we're playing their very first show together.
The band worked very hard from the moment they got together and just seven months after playing their first show they entered a battle of the bands competition hosted by Gorilla Music at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland, Oregon. Not only did they find themselves moving onto the finals, but winning the finals as well. This lead to the band going onto record their debut album, "Symptoms" at Falcon Recording Studios in Portland, Oregon on August 30th 2014. The band continued to grind, and without wasting any time one year and three months later on April 8th, 2016 they released their follow-up album, "Prognosis". which they recorded and produced themselves. In late 2016, after departing from their guitarist of nearly 4 years, the band met Brandon Thompson. A quiet kid from Beaverton, Oregon with a knack for shredding & since has helped propel the bands sound & energy to new heights. Without any plans of slowing down Felony Flats is sure to continue gaining steam. With their catchy, edgy style and their always entertaining, energetic live performances this is one band that you should definitely be looking out for!

Set In Stone is a Pacific Northwest hard rock band that was formed in 2008 in St. Helens, Oregon (suburb of Portland, Oregon) and consists of five band members that have all resided in Columbia County for most of their lives. Their unique heavy-rock sound has been referred to the likes of Seether, Breaking Benjamin and Alter Bridge. Set in Stone offers a wide-range of styles and music diversity, which is the foundation of their unmistakably unique and all-original sound. Their deep guitar crunches, solid riffs, ground pounding bass, heavy-handed rhythmic drums and mesmerizing vocals are all reasons Set in Stone has quickly attracted the attention from all over the Pacific Northwest.
Set in Stone released their first self-titled album in April 2009. Their first professional album Open Doors debuted in May 2011. The album consists of 11 professionally recorded, mixed and mastered tracks recorded by Black Diamond Studios in Portland. This album can be streamed or downloaded for free on our Reverbnation website.
In 2017, they released their second professionally recorded album "What Remains." Also recorded, mixed and mastered by Matt Jefferson of Black Diamond Studios. Both albums can be found on most widely-used music platforms.

Earth to Ashes began in early 2010 creating a sound which is a hybrid of: hard rock, progressive rock/metal, and classic 80s metal, that quickly separated Earth to Ashes from the typical Pacific Northwest sound.
Over the first three years the band went through many line-up changes but was eventually solidified in 2013. With a solid line-up, Earth to Ashes has performed around the Pacific Northwest garnering them a loyal fan base.
The blending of classic and contemporary rock has made them the go to support act for international artists such as, Uli Jon Roth, Michael Schenker, Primal Fear, Fates Warning, Sister Sin, In this Moment, Doro Pesch, Sanctuary, Intronaut, Pat Travers, Bobaflex, and many more.
By 2013 the band had recorded two EPs, a live CD. Even though there was enough older material to record a full CD, it was decided to start from scratch and write a whole new concept album. Not every band starts out with a concept CD as the freshman effort, but Earth to Ashes has never been accused of following the rules, just breaking them.
In September 2013 drum tracking began at Opal Studios with engineer/producer Kevin Hahn (Scorpions, Animotion.) Guitars and bass were recorded at Matts home studio and then the band was back at Opal Studios with Kevin to record vocals, mix and master. The new CD titled Curse Invoked was released on June 3, 2014 on Iron Taco Music.
Curse Invoked tells the story of an ancient curse that moves through people over the centuries. From Caesars to Generals, Teachers to Priests, Presidents to Policemen, whoever is possessed is doomed to weave a path of madness and destruction.
After playing many shows in support of Curse Invoked, Earth to Ashes took most of 2017 off from playing shows to record their sophomore effort. The new CD, the self titled Earth to Ashes, was released April 1 2018.
