""Cascade Rye brings shelter and release to itinerant hearts in any condition." -The Gazette, Corvallis, OR. 


"The real deal. Cascade Rye has great sensibilities." -Gurf Morlix (producer- Lucinda Williams, Robert Earl Keen)       


Cascade Rye is a grass roots duo, led by husband and wife, Jake and Kalyn Payne. With roots 8 generations deep in rural Oregon, they call the beautiful Willamette Valley, HOME. You may catch this original Americana/Alt Country act out performing across the county as an acoustic duo, trio, or a hard hitting electrified band. No matter what the line up, the Payne's deliver a refreshingly unrehearsed, raw and unique experience, every time!     Read FULL bio



We are currently booking in the general western Oregon area for the spring/summer. Stay tuned and come see us at a show near you!



     6/30  Another great show! Thanks Corvallis! Also thanks to Kent from the historic Troubadour Music Center! 


After a several month break, we returned to one of the valley's best little kept secrets, The Wildwood Hotel. in Willamina, Oregon. Thanks again to everyone who showed up and made that evening so special. We won't forget it! The following Saturday we entertained at The Calapooia Brewery in Albany. Again, another packed house and completely magical night! Just what our souls needed! Thank you for sharing in it with us. A big thanks to the very talented Waylon Rich, for opening both shows and jamming with the band later on. Also to Mr. Kevin Van Walk for lending his talents on percussion/drumming!
