Artist website: Kris Deelane & The Hurt
Kris Deelane is making a loud noise in the Portland Rock scene. With her nine-piece soul band, The Hurt, Kris is amping up her performances in and around Portland and the Pacific Northwest. Kris has performed with or shared stages with national artists such as Brian Wilson, Joan Jett, John Doe (X, The Knitters), Pee Wee Ellis, Jill Sobule, and Peter Yarrow. As a key figure in Portland’s Next Waltz (a tribute to The Band’s final show at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom in 1976, and filmed by Martin Scorsese) she has graced local stages with the likes of Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons, Jenny Conlee‐Drizos (Decemberists/Black Prairie), David Jacob‐Strain, Ural Thomas (Ural Thomas and The Pain), Joe McMurrian, Christopher Worth (Worth/NIAYH) and Holcomb Waller to name but a few.
The Hurt is ten players strong and features a number of Portland music luminaries including Ned Failing (Mexican Gun Fight/Floydian Slips) on drums, Steve Kerin on keys (Too Loose Cajun Band, Atomic Gumbo, Rose City Kings and winner of the Cascade Blues Association’s “Keyboardist of the Year”), Greg Hyatt on bass (Five Easy Pieces, Zoo People, Berthaline, and Lapdog, featuring members of Toad The Wet Sprocket), Heidi Shuler (Merl Saunders) on percussion and Alan Toribio (Mexican Gunfight) on guitar. With her backing singers, The Lady Parts, and horn section, Kris is dipping into deep cuts and old school favorites from the soul sounds of the 60’s and 70’s. Think Motown to Memphis, Stax to Atlantic records, Aretha to Etta. It’s all here!
