Volcanic Pinnacles
Post Rock / Experimental / Ambient / Free Jazz from Portland OR

Volcanic Pinnacles is a Portland duo that creates dense clouds of ambient, melodic, and grooving sound. Drawing inspiration from the likes of spiritual jazz as well as avant-garde and post rock pioneers, the duo bridges the gap between free jazz, post rock, psychedelic rock, and world rhythms. Saxophone player Tony Mowe utilizes electronics to push his instrument into innovative territory, creating a deep droning wave of melody, while drummer Mark Musselman sculpts the sound into shifting polyrhythmic layers.

Since forming in the Fall of 2012 the group has recorded 2 EPs and played many high profile shows around Portland, including the CD Baby Presents: We Are Indie Showcase, the Creative Music Guild's Outset Series, St Johns NoFest, the EYRST Halloween Party, The Northwest Post-Rock Collective Showcase, and more.

The duo completed its first tour in spring of 2015, performing at cities and towns throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, and California.

Volcanic Pinnacles released their second EP, Incandescent, on October 15th 2016. In 2017, the band reached a new audience when their track "Fanfare To The Outer Spheres" was sampled by the explosive Portland rapper The Last Artful, Dodgr for her track "Jazz Crimes" which has experienced major success on streaming platforms.

The group was featured on the 2017 edition of the long-running and highly regarded PDX Pop Now compilation series, which showcases the best new artists in Portland through its annual compilation release. Also in 2017, the band was included on the Voodoo Doughnut Recordings first official compilation release, 'Portland Cream Vol. 1.'

Volcanic Pinnacles is moving full speed ahead into 2018, with a full schedule of shows and exciting new music that will soon see its debut for live audiences.
