Pickathon's 2015 Fall Season has just begun. This week, they're kicking off an ambitious run of four new episodes every week through February 2016. Through twelve individual channels of content, you'll be able to experience this one of a kind festival in the most intimate of ways... you'll go, On the Farm, up to the Pumphouse, across to the Slab, out the Woods Stage, into the Galaxy Barn, and so many other unique locations where the magic of Pickathon happens.

KEXP is proud to take part. On every fourth Thursday of each month, we present the Logging Road Sessions, featuring twelve exclusive performances captured by the KEXP crew deep in the woods of the festival grounds, with artists including JD McPherson, Rodrigo Amarante, Fruit Bats, Jackson Boone, Little Freddie King and Ty Segall with Cory Hanson.

Today, we present Mexican born, Portland based singer-songwriter Edna Vazquez, whose roots in traditional folk and mariachi music and fiercely independent spirit combine in a sound that is both familiar and new. Though recorded deep in the woods, Edna's raw, impassioned performance pulls you on a journey deep within as she reveals the title track of her forthcoming album, Sola Soy, live on the Logging Road:
