The coming together of Rebecca Marie Miller and Joy Pearson as Portland, Oregon folk outfit, Lenore., is serendipitous, to say the least. After individually hitting rock bottom — Pearson following a divorce and Miller after a period of destitution in LA — the pair 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 and 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 and 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 & Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, as well as the Sunset Tavern, Triple Door and Tractor Tavern in Seattle. They've opened for Eric Bachmann, Laura Gibson, Esme Patterson, Blitzen Trapper & ex-collaborators, The Mynabirds and 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. More recently, Lenore. began playing with a rhythm section that features a rotating cast of bassists & drummers.

Lenore. will release their debut self-titled album produced by John Askew on 9/15/2017. Singles Sharp Spine (feat. Eric Bachmann), Ether's Arms & Heavy Eyes are out now everywhere you get your music.
