Laura and Tucker are proponents of giving yourself permission to fail. Giving yourself permission to fail — while never giving up — is a necessary component to arriving at success. If you fail over and over again, you can take on a curious view of your craft which can spark wonder and surprise. Laura and Tucker believe that though it’s often difficult, anyone who wants can find their path to pursue a creative life.
Portland couple, Laura Veirs and Tucker Martine, have been deeply involved in the DIY indie music movement for decades. Laura is a world renowned folk songwriter who has enchanted a generation of music lovers with her beautiful and gentle songwriting. Tucker is a world-famous, Grammy- nominated producer, who has worked with bands such as REM, Bill Frisell, Spoon, My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, Neko Case, Sufjan Stevens, and Death Cab For Cutie. In 2010, Paste Magazine included Tucker in their list of the “10 Best Producers of the Decade.”
