I'm currently a lead visual designer for Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon. I help create and execute concepts for logo products, book promotions, company branding, and our online presence. I also do freelance graphic design and illustration for the Hollywood Theatre and Movie Madness Video Store.
Nate Ashley has been an obscure name even by indie pop standards, although his debut album, Where Matter Lives, was a very high-quality effort in that style. Ashley has a breathy, confessional, singer-songwriter aura that recalls some of the better folk-rock of the late '60s and early '70s, while steering entirely clear of the laid-back, polished sound of performers such as James Taylor. It would be more properly aligned with the sparsest of the Beatles' folk-rock tracks (both as a group and solo performers) from that era, or with Elliott Smith along with his contemporary peers.
