“If you never take a chance, you can never get it wrong, so you better take a chance before it’s gone”. These lyrics from the song Chances on their self-titled debut album have become a mantra for the members of Never Come Down. As band leader Joe Suskind puts it, “This band was born out of taking risks. We all felt the pull to take a chance on our music and each other, so we left our day jobs behind and hit the road. We’re taking a real swing at it.” Earnest songwriting, dedication to craft, and genuine care for the music is at the forefront of what Never Come Down does. “We never tell each other what to play; as a group we can feel it when the music is right.” It’s that feeling that Never Come Down creates that has captivated audiences from the onset and is now drawing national attention.
“The Portland bluegrass scene got a huge shot in the arm with the advent of Never Come Down. Top-notch players combined with great original songwriting make for an always-fantastic show whenever they play. They’re also deeply involved in the musical community – sweethearts building a scene!”
