Hi! We're Callie and Brian Bauer. In 2016 we started a production company called Shady Pines Media. We make music videos, recording music in our basement recording studio in Portland, Oregon...
Up until recently, we also hosted 2 open mics here in town--first at EastBurn Public House, and later at Cruzroom Annex as well. Over the past few years we’ve had the the pleasure of sharing stages and working in the studio with many amazing and talented people, and becoming part of a vibrant and inspiring community of artists here in Portland.
By March 2020 it was becoming apparent that the pandemic was going to throw a wrench in our studio and event work, and we made the decision to put it all on hold shortly before a widespread COVID lockdown began.
We quickly pivoted to doing a live-streamed open mic, where artist near and far Skyped into the show and performed, or presented a video.
Shortly after we started this, we became inspired on the idea of starting our own online radio station--BIG THANKS to our friend Zack for planting this seed. It seemed like a fun new way to highlight the artist community we'd helped to facilitate over the years. And we could all do it from home!
We fell in love with the idea, and immediately launched Shady Pines Radio. Today we have a diverse array of of 50+ DJ’s and hosts doing weekly shows from their homes every day of the week.
We host our own weekly show on Sunday nights called Nocturnal Submissions, where we play original songs submitted to us by artists from Portland and beyond.
Shady Pines Radio has become is our primary media endeavor. It keeps us connected to the artist community in COVID times, and helps keep artists connected to their audience, and continue to expand it during this crazy time. We love doing this, and we believe in it!
We believe that with your support, we can turn this station into something truly special. A radio station that is accessible to creative folks of all stripes.
A place where you can tune in and hear performances by your friends, yourself, artists you love, and ones you’ve never heard before.
A sonic playground where people can experiment, share ideas, and discover new sounds.
A spotlight. A satellite. A megaphone. A virtual stage based here Portland, and extending far, far beyond!
