AUTHENTIC NEW ROOTS MUSIC FROM PORTLAND, OREGON

The Mean Individuals — Portland Bluegrass supergroup

Formed in the Summer of 2017 through a series of incidental connections and unfulfilled promises of “we should do something together sometime,” The Mean Individuals is an acoustic collaboration between four stalwarts of the Portland music scene. Featuring singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Clara Baker (Five Letter Word), guitarist Austin Moore (Giraffe Dodgers, Renegade Stringband), mandolinist Chad Kimbler (Far Out West, The Student Loan), and bassist Julio Appling (The Student Loan), the group unifies the diverse and multifaceted musical voices of its members to offer their own blend of original roots music as well as their own twist on popular classics.
