Sarah Saul vocals
Cliff Jetton brass
Joel Hoffman guitar
Oren Sreebny bass

Sarah Saul grew up in Portland, Oregon, fortunate to have been born into a musically talented family where music was in every corner of the house. Sarah began her vocal career at age 5. Soon after, she began tap dance lessons with Cindy Brenn to accompany herself with dance as she sang. Tap opened up rhythmic avenues for Sarah that would not have existed, and she attributes all of her rhythmic expression to the dance form. Sarah’s first jazz combo was the The Saultry Trio formed in 2013. Sarah continues to work with many artists throughout the Pacific Northwest and has spent the last few years expanding her musicianship with Wild Rose, Sarah Saul Combo, and Tin Can Alley.

Brass player Cliff Jetton has been an Oregonian for 40 years and has played in several ensembles in Portland and in the Willamette Valley – combo and big band jazz, pop, rock, blues and latin. His love and passion for music go back to having piano lessons from his mother, and switching to trumpet at age 10.

Joel Hoffman is a native of Oakland, CA, where he began playing guitar as an 8 year old in group lessons at a park recreation center. Music has always played an important role in his life, and he’s always sought opportunities to collaborate with other musicians. Joel became intrigued with Jazz music as an early teen after discovering the great Bay Area jazz station KJAZ. He continued that fascination studying music theory, performing in high school and university jazz ensembles.

Bassist Oren Sreebny began his musical career in Bellingham, WA, playing with the legendary punk band Art Object and local rock favorites Wet Paint before joining popular R&B outfit Eddie and the Atlantics. In the early ‘90s he played with Washington, DC based swing and blues singer Laurel Blaydes before returning to Seattle, where he worked steadily with jazz trio Whispering Johnson and klezmer favorites the Klez Katz. He spent 2010-2018 living in Chicago, where he played regularly as a freelance jazz bassist, played Western Swing with the Howdy Neighbors, and helped found fusion band Groove Alley.
