The rest of the family: The Comforters

The Comforters is an indie singer/songwriter group, husband and wife team, Pia and Jason, here in a live music performance in Portland. Pia is our daughter, the middle child, between S and B, the boys you met in my previous post.

Besides writing all their own songs, The Comforters perform and record at their own music studio in Eugene, Oregon. Whenever we can, hubby and I like to take in the live performances, the intimate settings of their music making, appreciating their work and artistry. The two of them are inseparable.

Should you wish to hear their music and see more pictures, visit their website:

Enjoy.

Your daughter has a crystal clear voice. I love their music & totally see why they call themselves The Comforters... their music is very comforting!

they have a very nice demo. Their music is appeasing and pleasant to listen at. I guess all your kids are really chips off the old bloc.

Ribbon said...

I'm off to have a listen (when my computer will let me)

Beautiful family you have.

Love that Mississippi Pizza sign!
Your daughters voice takes me back to the folk singers of the sixies!
Very pretty!

Gran said...

Wonderful music. You have a talented family!

I'll hop over. Can't tell you the amount of respect and amiration I have for anyone who can put themselves out there like that.

Michel said...

Wow I like that! Very talented family!

Natalie said...

Pia obviously takes after her mama's side of the family. :D

karen said...

wow! i've been catching up on all your lovely posts.. gardening, family reunions and 'meeting' all of them!I can't watch the video at the mo, but maybe when our connection is a little faster! Have a great weekend x

Moannie said...

What a beautiful voice-and the songs are really good. How wonderful to have music in the family.

Bogey said...

As I'm sipping the first of my morning coffee, your daughter's voice is gently purring out "Lazy Sundays", already my favourite. An amazing and artistic duo. I can only imagine how proud you must feel. Thank you so much for sharing this little secret with the rest of us. I think I will put in an order now!

I guess I'm privileged. For years, even while living in our little village of Val-David, we have had a high speed Internet connection. Last Christmas my kids gave me a new computer with powers I have yet to explore.
When I read other posts and how theire authors have "slow old" computers or slow connections, I can not help but be grateful for what I have and what my kids provided me with.

Helen said...

What a gift you have given us! Just finished listening to Lazy Sundays and fell in love with that beautiful voice ~ and the piece!

♥ Braja said...

How cool is that...lovely voice. I read in your last post you're Italian? I love Italians, Italy, Italian food, wine, everything. My favorite place in the world that I ever visited. My favorite city, Firenze....grew up with Italians too, lots of them. Somethin' about all that makes me really love Italian :)

Renee said...

Rosaria, this shows you how dense I am.

When you showed me the group the Comforters before and I listened, I loved them, but I didn't know it was your daughter and son in law.

They are fantastic.

I love the name Pia.

Beautiful girl just like her Mama.

xoxoxo

You must be very proud of your family. Loved listening to the Comforters.

Lori ann said...

Oh Rosaria, they are completely wonderful!
thank you for sharing your lovely daughter and husband with us, I love their music.
I enjoyed your last posts and meeting your family also.
I'm going to buy the c.d. now.
Pride in our children doing well is the absolute best.

God of Another World said...

That is really good!!! Reminds me of the Carpenters.

vicki archer said...

What a talented girl you have..Thank you for visiting me and your lovely comment. xv

Lola said...

How does it feel to have created such artists? Pia's voice is overwhelming, so sweet and plaintive. Thier music is like their name, comforting. And your admiring post is the cherry on top. Brava Rosaria

Love,

I wanted to come by and answer your question...Yes, one needs to have odd numbers most of the time, differant heights , and old with new ect. But anything you like came be used. Thanks for coming by.

Femin Susan said...

Thanks for sharing!
I really enjoyed reading this post.

Man of Roma said...

The music is sweet, it reminds the folk music of the 60s. I saw the pics too. Your daughter looks intelligent and beautiful, with an intimate tone of voice. She might have taken more from her Scandinavian father's side (Denmark and Sweden,) though, differently from what Natalie says. But one cannot much tell from pictures.

PS
It is amazing how today parents and children can share a music they can both appreciate. It didn't happen at my time.

Reya Mellicker said...

This is so cool! My sister lives in Eugene. I will definitely pass along the url.

You must be so proud.

Cynthia said...

I do love your daughter's voice and "the comforters" style. You must be so proud to see your daughter singing her heart to the world. I know when my daughter sings, I am overwhelmed at the emotional strength her voice communicates to me. You have a lovely daughter and son-in-law...I celebrate your lovely family with you, Lakeviewer-Rosario!

pink dogwood said...

Wow - I would have to listen to them from home.

BTW, you asked where you can buy a mulberry tree - I found this place online

merrilymarylee said...

What a delightful treat! Just sent the link to Husband's computer. He thinks he's the savvy one in the family when it comes to matters musical. I'll dazzle him with my FIND!

Brian Miller said...

nice demo. fun to watch our kids grow up and become what is in their hearts. to watch them on stage i am sure tugs at your heart, the music they make together in their relationship. thanks for sharing!

david mcmahon said...

Wow - lots of talent in your clan.

Marilynne said...

What fun it must be to have performers as part of your family.

Tessa said...

Wow! And Wow again - that is absolutely fantastic. What a beautiful daughter you have, lakeviewer, with the most beautiful, crystal-clear voice. I'm straight off to iTunes right now to download their music to my iPod. Heavenly.

marc aurel said...

I'm listening to them now. Lovely. I am reminded of all the times I "dicovered" a new music sensation. Turns out I was always the last on the bandwagon, but music is like that. As to The Comforters, I wish them success.
