The music of the experimental ensemble The Wishermen teems with melodic ositnatos and harmonic rhythms. Their genre bending compositions travel from quirky pop tunes to noise-scapes, while blurring the line between the improvised and the composed. The core members of the band (Barra Brown-drums, Grant Sayler-guitar, and Chris Friesen-bass) began playing together in 2010 and often invite other musicians to orbit their concept driven sounds.

TWM sophomore release is available now on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon. Released on Cavity Search Records, December, 9th

The Wishermen perform regularly in Portland and have had the great privilege of opening for national acts such as the Robert Glasper Experiment (2012) and Kneebody (2013).
