The Sale is the brainchild of Portland, OR based singer/songwriters Bre Paletta and Justin Bennett, two independent thinkers who made a connection and started making beautiful music about the human experience.
“With poignant, piercing honesty and bittersweet reflection, the pair’s songs speak to the joy and pains of everyday life that can’t be captured in everyday expression. Abundant and pressing at the seams with vivid metaphor and insightful wisdom, they let you see who they are and give you a glimpse inside yourself.”
Guitars and voices intertwine like ribbon. Then add the rest of the band, a rotating cast of devoted friends, gifted artists and assets to the dynamic sound, whose nuance and excitement provide that extra kick in the pants: drummers Chris Lay and Joshua Corry, bass players Christopher Friesen and Michael Dougherty, multi-instrumentalist Todd Bayles, flute player Martin Carter, cellist Skip VonKuske, percussionist Joe Riso and guitarist Tanner Cundy.
These passionate beings bring energy and intensity to every performance to captivate listeners and evoke powerful emotion. Hearts in hands, minds in motion, The Sale desires to uplift, to inspire, to speak truth and to build community.
This is music for the movement of body and soul.
