Soul and R&B fans in Portland are usually S.O.L. for local live shows. You're 100 times more likely to see us digging through dusty crates and groovin' on our headphone-jams than at a venue (or, we're at a venue dancing to someone else's records). Live music? What's that? Luckily, Portland singer Reva DeVito and DJ/producer Roane Namuh have paired up to create and perform their latest release Cloudshine. Making a departure from DeVito's 2011 debut EP, where her ethereal, loungy vocals floated somewhere above a collection of beats with divergent moods, Cloudshine is an R&B album, reminiscent of Janelle Monáe or Estelle. There is something to be said for a focused sophomore project—just because you can make music in more than one style doesn't mean you necessarily should. Cloudshine gives the people what they want—slow jams for the honeys! ROCHELLE HUNTER
