More time in lockdown means more time to explore the lush melodies, messages and movements that make up the Lilac City’s local music scene.

Here are some of our community’s own musical artists who keep us entertained in isolation.

Vanna Oh!

Formerly one-half of femme rock duo Donna-Donna, Lindsay Johnston has embraced her musical alias into a commanding presence known equally for her frenetic live shows and striking white hair. That same energy is on display when she steals center stage at prom in the music video for her latest single, “Chaperone.”

Blake Braley

The freshest cut of blue-eyed soul to grace Inland Northwest listeners, Blake Braley’s “Darlin’” might be the unassumingly sweet love song that carries listeners through their quarantine woes. This, plus a streaming catalog that radiates unrestricted tenderness only builds anticipation for his upcoming EP.

Listen on: Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio

Brotha Nature

Interstellar production appointments meet down-to-earth words in the eponymous track of rapper Brotha Nature’s latest album, “Cosmic Ninja.” Making full use of spacey textures, breathy vocals and driving bassline grooves, this thematic studio effort sticks the landing with both moonboots on.

Listen on: Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Deezer.

Mountains in the Sea

The self-described indie blues pop duo project of Philip and Angela Lamb, their laid-back liveliness exudes appreciation in their latest single “Thank You.” The 2019 single “Wavin’ to My Haters” brags of total victory through lush vocals and unconditional confidence.

Listen on: Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music, Tidal, Deezer.

The Good Friday’s

Fueled by faith and armed with earnest choruses, local group the Good Friday’s turn “pain into power” in their first studio effort “Psalms Vol. 1.” Straightforward songwriting and rich instrumentation reminisce the Lumineers at its peak with a rootsy core at its heart.

Listen on: Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music, Deezer.
