Jay Si Proof, or JSP, is the philosophical indie funk vision of multi-instrumentalist composer/arranger Jeff Chilton (Jay Si) whose credits include performing with The Diamonds, The Platters, Broken Social Scene, and recording on over 20 albums by Portland based ensembles. Described as “earth jazz alchemists” by Vortex Magazine, JSP was born in 2019 from the soggy jazz soaked earth of Portland, OR. Since its inception, the band has evolved through adventurous jazz fusion to low-fi jams to a full fledged funk party, all while prioritizing genuine messages of spirituality and human betterment in the midst of endless modern crises. Jay Si is joined by Lucas James (drums and vocals) JD Erickson (sax and flute), and Corey Heppner (guitar).
The Graduating Class
Portland band The Graduating Class describe their sound as “Anderson .Paak and Daryl Hall going on a three week bender in Quincy Jones’ studio.” Stylistically, the group blends modern production techniques with tonal and songwriting influences from the 1970s and 80s, and Queant serves as the lead producer on every song.
New Body Electric
New Body Electric’s blend of electro-pop and soul sounds is bringing back fun to the live music scene. After focusing on publishing as a duo, Evan Smoker (guitar/bass) and Aaron Peterson (vocals/synth) perform in Portland with a full band to complete a groovy live sound, as well as more intimate shows as a duo.
