About Tribe Mars
About Tribe Mars

Tribe Mars is a seven-piece band that offers a genre-bending mix of jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop and sounds not yet defined. Their music evokes emotion of an extraterrestrial nature. With songs that blend a kaleidoscope of musical genres, listen as they touch on sophisticated subjects: finding time to explore within, twisted American lies, living in black skin, the intimacy of death, of life, of love.

About Adebisi
About Adebisi

Adebisi is a seven person neo-soul/alt-RnB group from Portland. Formed in 2017, it is a fusion of all of the member's musical interests ranging from Erykah Badu to Sade to Hiatus Kaiyote and many more. Adebisi is a unique combination of music that fuses the contemporary sounds of today with the style and swagger of 90s r&B and gospel.

About Heysus
