Brian Odell and Bob Baker

Brian Odell first started singing in choir in the fifth grade and he hasn’t stopped since. His performing career began in an elite show choir in high school but really blossomed in college when, after success at talent shows and a showcase performance, he began writing his own music. From that point forward, If it had a stage and a microphone, he was there. Today, Brian performs all over the Pacific Northwest with his 5-piece band at concert-in-the-park events, private party & corporate events, as well as festivals and as entertainment for large-scale run events like the Hood-to-Coast relay. Brian has earned a large local fan base and with the help of online music platforms has spread his music worldwide.

Bob Baker grew up as a classically trained violinist but his musical heart swayed to the, rock, pop, blues and Americana sounds of his time. He received his bachelor’s degree in Violin from Whitman College and upon graduation returned to Portland, OR to perform and create music in the Pacific Northwest. His roots go back to the music of the 60’s 70’s and 80’s. His playing incorporates the precision of the classics with the soulfulness of the rhythm and blues, all set to the strains of the “fiddle” singing in the background.
