What do you get when you cross Texas twang with Northwest folk?
Ask Mare Wakefield, Eugene Oregon-based singer/songwriter who spent her formative years in East Texas.
Mare's songs and vocals combine the spunk and drawl of Texas with the tenderness and introspection of the Northwest, and audience members are moved to tears and laugh out loud at the same show.
Don't miss your chance to hear the country-flavored songs such as "Sewing Machine" and the the nostalgic tribute "Ghost of John Denver," as well as the vocal versatility displayed in the haunting "Fighting" and the powerful title track, "Factory."
"Wakefield has a clear, energetic and confident voice that bounces off the band's thick walls quite well and even holds humor," says Scott Lewis of Portland's Rocket Magazine.
She has a vocal range and power that is impressing audiences throughout the Northwest, and conveys her songs with strength and tenderness.
