Moody Little Sister is a folk-rock and soul duo from Portland made up of Naomi Hooley and Rob Stroup. Four years ago, after having to walk out on a violent crowd in a small town bar, the duo was forced to reconsider the path that most bands follow. This soul searching led them to question who they were as people, what they wanted out of their life and music, and what they wanted their fans to experience at their shows.
Moody Little Sister redefined themselves and their approach, while also crafting a fresh and non-traditional way of giving music to their fan base. For the past four years, they have been performing nearly a hundred shows a year in back yards, living rooms, and on large pieces of property where they have created “Camping Concerts.” Community, nature, and the inward journey are the themes to most of the band’s songs. Their debut record Wild Places is a soundtrack for anyone on a journey to be more authentically themselves.
Fronted by married duo Matt and Jenny Behnke, Skybound Blue is harmony-driven Americana — the dig deep and tell the story in your bones kind. And what a story theirs is of risk, adventure, and adversity. From selling everything and sailing the Caribbean, surviving cancer, to raising a family while staying true to the quiet knowing that writing and sharing their music is their path. They’re charming, funny, and real, and the chemistry onstage is synched in a way typically only seen in acts as polished as Milk Carton Kids or First Aid Kit. Whether playing an intimate theater or summer festival, they own any stage with sincerity and love. Skybound Blue’s music has been hand selected for Portland’s KINK Homegrown Music compilation and National ad campaigns with Woolrich. They’ve created a devoted following of fans who crave that rare and magical combination of authenticity, connection, inspiration…and exceptional music.
