I first came across Portland in Triangle, a Christian bookshop cum teashop. Not in person but listened on one of those CD stations that give appalling sound quality.

My next exposure was on Whispering Bob Harris show on BBC Radio 2 in the grave yard shift in the early hours of the morning Sunday 11 October 2009. I did not catch it all and only caught it at all when I found a message on facebook telling me to listen. Their live performance was brilliant, far better than their studio tracks and I hope one day they release a live album. Their taste in music awful.

After hearing Portland on Bob Harris I went back to Triangle and picked up a copy of These Broken Hands, their debut album. It was worth the trip.

Portland, formerly Shoa, a rock-folk fusion trio.
