Portland band Norman luvs the buttah, Breedlove guitars and brilliant music #inbend

UNCUT SESSIONS from buttah music and The Oxford Hotel in Bend, Oregon:
Norman, a Portland indie band that visited Bend Oregon recently, gave us insight around Eric's Grandpa 'Norman' and the depth of their music. We also took around the horn for a buttah rally.
Norman concludes our visit with an acoustic version of a new song called No Clouds. Norman demos their talent and shows that even a hotel Gideon bible can contribute to beautiful music. Play this video a few times and you may find yourself with a song you find humming for days.

Alexis Ebert in Bend, Oregon sings La La La at The Oxford Hotel. #inbend, Breedlove Guitars.

Prior to sharing another sweet tune with @localbuttah and @misstrade, Alexis Ebert tells us about her love for butter, the COCC event that brought her to Bend, a work in progress 'dark' comic series she is writing with the William Morris Agency (WMA), its similarity to Adult Swim, and her interest in checking out the Breedlove guitar plant and their awesome products (she tells us that she not afraid to strum the mandolin too).

Alexis Ebert, Sony Records visits Bend, Oregon for COCC event

@misstrade from @localbuttah chats up Alexis Ebert live in Bend, Oregon at The Oxford Hotel. Already a recording artist veteran at age 19 (yes, one-nine), Alexis Ebert tells us what song she thinks Elvis Costello might play of hers. We find quickly why she was signed so early as she offers us a beautiful acoustic version of her Lonely Boy song.
This occurred about 20 minutes after her arrival at The Oxford Hotel which was proceeded by a tough cross country trek that originated in her current hometown of Nashville, TN. Alexis is an Oregon native and spent a few years in another music mecca, Branson, MO.
