In 1997, Stephen Quirk had one of his photographs of Bully Pulpit (later known as Bullyclub) published in Portland’s Casco Bay Weekly.  This lead to a twelve-year collaboration with the band on various projects and introductions to other local musicians, including frequent collaborator José Ayerve of Spouse and A Severe Joy.

By 2010, Stephen was seeking a way to package his album design, website creation, and photography services to musicians, while also helping bring attention to Maine’s thriving music scene.  Factory Portland launched as a result.

These days, Factory Portland functions solely as a blog, featuring interviews with local and non-local musicians, concert reviews, and more!  Everyone at Factory Portland hopes to bring their own passion for music to a wider audience.
