The coming together of Rebecca Marie Miller & Joy Pearson as Portland, OR folk outfit Lenore., is serendipitous, to say the least.
After individually hitting rock bottom — Pearson following a divorce & Miller after a period of destitution in LA — they separately turned to songwriting in the search for a still point in their turning worlds.
After years of lending their abilities to other projects, including Saddle Creek’s The Mynabirds & Portland’s own High Water Jazz Band, they finally found themselves spinning on the same axis when a chance meeting through a mutual friend, Pokey LaFarge, sparked an immediate connection. A drunken night ensued & before they’d even scoped each other’s material, they had committed.
Now, two years since that fateful evening & Lenore. can boast having performed at legendary PNW venues including Mississippi Studios & Aladdin Theater in Portland, as well as the Triple Door & Tractor Tavern in Seattle. They've opened for Eric Bachmann, Laura Gibson, Esme Patterson, Blitzen Trapper & ex-collaborators The Mynabirds & have shared the stage with Peter Buck (R.E.M.), as well as Chris Funk & Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists).
Since forming Lenore., Miller & Pearson have gained full-time collaborators in seasoned Portland musicians Edward Cameron (classical guitar) & Jessie Dettwiler (cello), who have contributed significantly to the evolution of Lenore.'s sound — a dreamy melancholic blend of harmony-driven folk with an ever present sense of hope.
