Portland collective Family Worship Center’s new LP out now via CorpoRAT Records

Family Worship Center, a Portland-based Southern Soul / Rock n’ Roll collective – and definitely not a cult – just released their phenomenal debut full-length, Kicked Out of the Garden, on September 8th via Spokane’s CorpoRAT Records.

The group specializes in a strain of redemptive, 1970s-styled rock n’ roll that recalls the Rolling Stones, Leon Russell, The Band, and Delaney & Bonnie. The band formed in 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee founded by prophetic visionary, singer-songwriter and keyboardist Andy Krissberg, but it has since relocated to Portland, Oregon.


Over the years, the tandem have routinely delivered next level collaborations that push the boundaries of hip-hop. Capping Nas & Hit-Boy’s prolific run (which includes six albums in three years; and Best Rap Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards – King’s Disease II) during HipHop50 is the perfect bookend to a brotherhood that will stand the test of time.

Introducing Claire Vandiver and her new ethereal single “Blue Moon”

Now living in Central Florida, Claire has spent over a decade honing her craft as a musician and songwriter. She’s previously released one EP and several singles recorded by multi-platinum producers ZK Productions in Atlanta, and is finding her own unique sound along the way.

Claire’s voice is equal parts ethereal and electrifying; edging towards cinematic with her ability to go from soft and melancholy to grungy and raw. By blending a wide array of influences ranging from indie rock, to modern pop, and a little flair of blues, she has crafted a unique sound that is truly fresh and all her own in the industry. Almost like an edgier Lana Del Rey for reference.

The Furious Seasons Bring Indie Folk to a New Level with “Every Morning At Five”

Acclaimed songwriter, singer and guitarist David Steinhart fashions songs that lyrically live on the hopeful side of melancholy, with an approach to songwriting by turns stark and ethereal, and perfect for an acoustic treatment.

Isaac Hayes was going after Kurt Russell, and I wanted to create music that fit the feel of the scene,” states Carpenter. “I wanted to include more music from Escape From New York [on Anthology II], and after re-listening to the soundtrack, this piece stood out to me as one that I wanted to try recreating and modernizing. It was fun recreating the various synth parts note by note, a very different process than how I originally recorded the piece back in the 80s.”
