The weekender

Our dear friend Rey Villalobos (a.k.a House of Wolves) who lives in California was in town this weekend to record and to also sneak in a house show. It was a great opportunity to hear some of his new songs. It was also wonderful to be invited to play a few with Nate Ashley and even a couple of my own.

How could I not have inspiration after views like this. Magical.

I forgot how fun house shows are. The intimate space and small crowd is an opportunity to connect in an entirely different way. Overall, it was such a wonderful night. Looking forward to the summer when we can do some backyard gigs! Special thanks to Jen L. for putting it all together and opening her home. Also to Gary, the dog, for being all around rad.

Portland managed to have a few nice moments of weather this past weekend. Big plus!!! With family in town, I took some time to enjoy the sights and get some creative inspiration in the process.

I took so many pictures I figured why not share some??? (Don't forget, you can also follow my picture feed on Instagram: @montclaire).

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well! Be back soon!
