Natasha Kmeto is a Portland-based singer and electronic producer who turns heads everywhere she goes. Armed with a taut dance floor sensibility and flutteringly sensuous voice, she exudes the kind of beauty that can only come from confidence. Her tracks are sleek and energetic affairs, straddling the line between dance, pop, and RnB, percussively intriguing compositions that slide easily into the ear but aren’t so easily forgotten. Her beauty, energy, and talent coalesce into a truly visceral live show, moving both to the partygoer and the thinking person alike. Wherever her music goes, heavy breathing will follow.
A rare breed of musician Laura Ivancie occupies the 1% that can compose and perform in polar genres with ease, singing sweetly with her hypnotically soothing voice to soft acoustic tunes then intensely belting across an electronic beat. Dripping with resonantly expressive and passionate tones, then accented with electric elements, Ivancie possesses a depth of talent that comes straight from her soul.

For over ten years Hillary worked at Sparrow Sound Design recording studio and Southport Records, the label. She began by setting up recording sessions, and eventually engineering beginning at age 17. And there were always her poems, and beats... she has performed sets in Miami, LA, Chicago, Memphis, and various locations around the North West. Before all the musical instruments and production “things” there is the voice, or soul of an artist. In essence Hillary is a musical gypsy, a purveyor of words and rhythm, blending reggae, jazz, blues, trip hop, house, Latin and classical… the music of…a gypsy poet...
