“I’ve been playing music in Portland since I was 16. At one point, I was actually paying my rent playing music, I had a record deal, and a tour bus, the whole thing. But I never got the chance to play The Crystal Ballroom. It has been a dream of mine, and it was really powerful to get to grace that stage last night.”
