Portland multi-instrumentalist Ben Larsen, perhaps best known as the frontman of string quintet Crow and the Canyon, struck out on his own with last year’s debut solo album “Turn.”

Featuring guest performances from fellow Portlanders Tony Furtado and Fruition drummer Tyler Thompson, among others, “Turn” casts a wide musical net, with Larsen exploring chamber pop (the string-driven “Time”), upbeat jam-band sounds (“Get it Right”) and introspective folk (“The Wind that Sweeps Your Pine”). After playing Pickin’ and Paddlin’ in July, Larsen and his band will return to Bend to rock The Brown Owl on Thursday.

Ben Larsen Band: 7 p.m. Thursday; free; The Brown Owl, 550 SW Industrial Way, Suite 120, Bend; facebook.com/events/779830309141076, brownowlbend.com or 541-797-6581.
