In Music We Trust PR Feature

Portland, Oregon-based singer-songwriter John Amadon has released his third full-length, Seven Stars. John Amadon writes and records without financing from a label. He rarely plays live and he doesn’t tour. How does he eat?

Amadon is known around Portland for his seven-year stint as bassist for roots-rock/pop artist Fernando and for his locally self-released solo records.

Seven Stars was made possible with a little help from several friends, including Scott McPherson (live and session drummer for acts including Beck, Elliott Smith, Neil Finn, M.Ward, She & Him, Bright Eyes, et.al), Mike Coykendall (M.Ward, She & Him), and William Slater (The Grails).
