"It’s been a busy year for One Flew West, an alt-rock band featuring a horn section and high-octane live shows. Two members of the band – Linden Jackson (vocals, guitar) and David DiSalvo (lead guitar) – study in the College of Arts & Media’s (CAM) music business program, which they call a “huge asset” to their development as a band."

These students are working hard to create a new reality for themselves – in large and small ways. Whether it be bucking the trend that a typical work day has to start at 8 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.; or that larger systems need major changes to make education available to all; or to create awareness and movement to make the act of getting a government-issued ID easier for those who have been adopted – these students are thinking critically, acting and making a difference.

6. "Had It All" — One Flew West
Indie rock gets a bad rap in this town where the only buzz seems to be around hipsters in suspenders or freaks with synths, but One Flew West is bringing it back, and bringing it back well with the “Had It All” video. An obvious spoof of the “Too Many Cooks” nightmare of a video (which takes place in Denver if the opening shot is to be believed). The band makes you giggle while blasting through one of the better indie-rock songs in recent times. You can check it out Here.
Denver band One Flew West, who signed with CU Denver’s own CAM Records, recently released the music video “Had It All,” shot with the help of CU Denver students.
“We did the shoot over two days in December,” said David Di Salvo, the band’s lead guitarist and supporting vocalist. “It was really great getting to see all of the students work together and each play an important role in the video. Some College of Arts and Media students were even actors in the video and turned out to be way better actors than us.”

The Fray was just a group of promising college students finishing their spring semester at the University of Colorado-Denver, and they had submitted a demo of their music to CAM Records, the university’s student-run label. By the time CAM’s compilation, Colorado Cuts, was released in November, How To Save a Life was on its way to eventually topping Coldplay’s X&Y as the best-selling album of all time. Rightfully, CAM still lists The Fray as one of its own.
