Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The diverse interests of the Portland-based jazz/funk trio range from backdoor Internet programming (keyboardist Benjamin Spriggs) to theories of perception (bassist Zac Alden) to something equally unusual (drummer Lee Hauser). A year before the trio established itself as Radio Phoenix, Alden and Spriggs had met while performing with PSU’s Latin Ensemble. They gigged and recorded together with multiple drummers for nearly a year before Alden and Hauser met in a band formed by vocalist/composer Damen Liebling. Hauser sat in on a jam featuring Alden, Spriggs, and notable Portland rapper Jah’di. Unbeknownst to the musicians, a crowd had formed outside the rehearsal space, and the unexpected applause after the group’s first improvised jam solidified Hauser as the third and final member of Radio Phoenix.

 The band picked the name “Radio Phoenix” as the term refers to a galaxy that has formed from the collision of two previous galaxies, and space is awesome.

 Since that pivotal day in October of 2015, popular interest Radio Phoenix has been  growing steadily. March 2016 saw the release of the self-titled EP, featuring the  three core members poking different genres without any guests, unlike the previous releases. The band now looks forward to a string of performances in the spring and summer, with another EP on the not-too-distant horizon and a fall northwest tour before returning to Portland to eagerly kick off a thrilling 2017.
