On April 1, 2016, Chris Purkea released Back in the Ring. She left her home base of Portland, OR and embarked on a tour with her band that found them crisscrossing the United States and Europe playing over 70 shows in less than a year. Now, one year later, Chris is heading out for a string of U.S. tour dates to celebrate the upcoming April 2017 release of her new live CD / DVD combo, which was recorded during the Back in the Ring release tour at Jammin Java in Vienna, VA.

Chris’s elegant emotionality as a vocalist, and her flair and immediacy as a lyricist have garnered her favorable comparisons to Gillian Welch, Ryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, and Patty Griffin. She’s earned accolades from such distinguished taste-making outlets as The New York Times, Paste, Magnet, Billboard.com, and The AllMusic Guide. She’s shared the stage with such diverse and esteemed artists as Dar Williams, The Lumineers, The Cowboy Junkies, Gregory Alan Isakov, Martin Sexton, and Ani DiFranco. Along the way, Chris has remained fiercely independent, selling over 50,000 albums through her own label, Sad Rabbit Records.
The HarmaLeighs
The HarmaLeighs
Pronunciation:
(the har-muh- lees)

The Harmaleighs is composed of Haley Grant (guitar/vocals) and Kaylee Jasperson (bass/vocals). Since the duo came together in early 2013, their sound has transformed from an Americana cadence into a unique indie pop/folk fusion. Their anecdotal lyrics are sung through intimately blended harmonies on top of dynamic melodies and bluesy guitar riffs. Hearing to The Harmaleighs is like seeing old friends and recounting stories—comfortable and relatable with a healthy dose of witty banter.
