Blind Pilot
Blind Pilot began in 2007 when Israel (vocals, guitar) and Ryan (drums) embarked on a West Coast bicycle tour playing mostly to unfamiliar listeners at small-town venues. The band now exists as a 6-piece ensemble featuring fellow Oregonians Luke Ydstie (upright bass, backing vocals), Kati Claborn (banjo, dulcimer, backing vocals), Ian Krist (vibraphones) and Dave Jorgensen (keyboards, trumpet). The band's second album, We Are The Tide (2011), which NPR noted "blooms agreeably from start to finish..." followed the band's grassroots break-out debut, 3 Rounds and a Sound (2008), which was featured in NPR's "Best Music of 2008" roundup. In the years since its inception, the band has toured with various world-renowned musicians including The Decemberists, Josh Ritter, The Low Anthem, Laura Veirs and Andrew Bird and appeared at the Sasquatch! Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival.

The band entered the studio this year to record their third album and an early 2016 release date is planned.
