Portland, Oregon, USA

Rauelsson's music orbits around word-conscious folk territories, equally distant from pop to more experimental lands. With emotive, dynamic transitions between austere to rich, sombre to bright sounds, Rauelsson's sense of melody and arrangement has gained increasing attention both in Spain and USA.


Self-considered an adopted Oregonian, Raul Pastor Medall (a.k.a., Rauelsson) has spent the last years of his life living in between Portland, OR and Spain where he was born. His constant attempt to connect the Mediterranean air that raised him with the intense green landscapes of the Pacific Northwest has heavily influenced his life and his quiet, word-conscious folk pop music. Soon after playing his music for some new friends in Oregon (Laura Gibson, Loch Lomond), HUSH Records offered to release his first material as Rauelsson, a double e.p. entitled "Tiempo de e.p. & Pacífico e.p". Since then Raúl has been busy, not only flying the North pole skies back and forth between the Pacific Northwest, where he resides currently, and the lands of his native Spain, but also working on three different projects to be published in the near future: a score for a documentary film entitled ‘From River to Sea’, a collaboration with his admired friend, multinstrumentalist, Efterklang-live-band member, Peter Broderick, and his first full length album, ‘La Siembra, la Espera y la Cosecha’ to be released by HUSH Records in the US in 180 gr clear vinyl limited edition and digital formats in January 2010. The record has been recorded and produced by Adam Selzer (M. Ward, The Decemberists...) in Portland OR. It features collaborations by Rachel Blumberg (M. Ward, Mirah), Dave Depper (Jolie Holland, Loch Lomond), Laura Gibson, and Spanish singer songwriter Julio de la Rosa.
