Portland's "Most Influential"

I'm very honored to be named by the Phoenix as one of Portland's "Most Influential Movers & Shakers" for the work I've done with Tower of Song and Eternal Otter Records. I started these projects because I love this city and wanted to properly showcase its many talents, so I'm glad that they have been recognized as a vital contribution to our local culture.

Also, these projects couldn't have succeeded without the help of many dedicated and creative supporters, some of whom were also recognized by the Phoenix, including Aly Spaltro (Lady Lamb the Beekeeper), Bryan Bruchman (who has given us lots of great publicity through his hillytown blog), and Kris Johnsen (who has designed a number of posters and album covers for us). Even more people were left off, but are equally deserving of attention, including John Fountain, Alicia Sampson, Roy Ghim (Liberation by Sound on WMPG), [dog] and [pony], Dominic Lavoie, and many others.

In any event, Eternal Otter Records plans on continuing its efforts to celebrate Portland's music. The Phoenix is also hosting a reception tonight at Bull Feeney's around 7 pm - hope to see you there.
