The Portland Cello Project (PCP) is an indie cello orchestra comprised of an ensemble of 8-16 cellists collaborating with some of the biggest names in the Portland music scene including the Horse Feathers, Dandy Warhols, Laura Gibson and a host of others. At one of their eclectic sessions you might hear anything from Bach, to Britney Spears and even a little bit of Salt-N-Peppa. That's right, this ain't no mellow cello troupe, they got some spice in their step. They have just released their debut full-length featuring collaborations with Three Leg Torso, Loch Lomond, Weinland, and of course Heather Woods Broderick on our compilation closer, "For Misty". Here is a clip from their sold-out show at the Alladin Theatre this past Spring.
