Portland natives and songstresses, The Lariza Sisters have been intriguing audiences in the northwest for almost a decade. Together they pour their lush and heartfelt harmonies into the eclectic folk rock band that is CORNER. Sisters Crystal; the writer, and Angela; the right hand man, swing their smoky sweet voices from moody and dynamic ballads like ‘Last Words’ to gritty country flecked gems like their dive bar ode, ‘Whiskey’.
The band formed in 2012 when all members met while working at The Portland Grill, the city’s famous high-rise watering hole. The first time the group played together, Crystal brought a couple of songs, a bottle of whiskey and no expectations. With Max Cheswick on lead guitar, Mike Cook on bass and the steady beat of Ray Maestas drum, the sister’s music was brought to life and CORNER was born.
Since then their sound has flown the airwaves of Portland Radio Project, KMUZ Radio in Salem and pulsed the stages of Portland’s iconic Star Theatre to Seattle’s euphoric Hempfest. The group is eagerly working on their second album, a follow up from their 2014 EP ‘Rude Awakening’ and is set to record this spring. Using an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach, CORNER is bound to surprise you.
