 RON FUNCHES 

Funches can we claim you? Up and coming comedian and actor Ron Funches is a graduate of the Portland comedy scene-- and we’re like proud parents watching him spread his wings and soar. Whether it’s a standup appearance on Conan, or acting on the Kroll Show, Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers, NBC’s Undateable or Powerless, or as the voice of Cooper in the Dreamworks animated hit Trolls, we’re rooting for Funches like a beaming mom tucked away in the wings.

 

 WALTER KIRN

Walter Kirn once interviewed himself for The New York Times. This was just after the publication of his bestselling memoir, Blood Will Out, and it’s just one of the ways that he’s found brilliance in bucking the norm. Author of eight books, including Clooney-film-adapted Up In the Air, Kirn has made a career of exalting corners of American life often ignored; air travel, shopping malls, murderers posing as Rockefellers, and what it is to be a writer with an ego, and an alter-ego, and some amount of imperfection.

  

THE SECRET SISTERS

Mass appeal, shmass appeal. The Secret Sisters symphonious folk music is soft and sentimental, it’s rooted in their southern traditions and soars with ethereal harmonies. They may have been dropped from a major label but in lieu they have been endorsed by some of the greatest musicians of our time; Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Ray LaMontagne, Jack White and now Brandi Carlile has swooped in to help raise funding and produce their latest album, You Don’t Own Me Anymore (take that major music label!) due out June 9th. The Secret Sisters are not going to be a secret for much longer.
