The Maker Issue

The Rose City is full of boutique manufacturers—from guitars, pedals, amps, cables and microphones to innovative technology that’s breaking barriers. In issue #18, meet your local instrument and gear makers who fuel our music scene and economy.

We also hear new music from soul legend Ural Thomas alongside rising talents Donte Thomas, Maarquii and May Arden, explore several local record labels to watch, and learn how to sell merch.
