The high energy pop/rockers of CAM Record’s alumni band One Flew West, are performing a spooky Halloween special this October. Covering songs by Tenacious D, One Flew West will be performing in Denver at the Larimer Lounge on Friday, October 26th, 9:00pm. The following day, they will be doing the Tenacious D cover set in Fort Collins at the Downtown Artery, 8:00pm. Also performing at these shows are Slow Caves and Compass & Cavern.
One Flew West released their second EP ‘Trial and Error’ in January 2018. This five track EP has been featured by notable publications including Alternative Press, idobi Radio, and New Noise Magazine. It has also been added to Spotify-curated playlists, The Scene and Pop Punk’s Not Dead.
Chloe Tang has been hitting the Denver Music scene hard with her last EP Passion//Aggression receiving mentions from 303 Magazine and Ultra 5280, along with being regarded as a Hometown Holiday Artist on 93.3 Denver’s Modern Rock Station for her single Hangover. Since then Tang has been focusing on breaking out of her comfort zone by experimenting with the Rock, EDM, Pop and r&b musical genres. She recently collaborated with local EDM artist Thoreau on the track “Off My Back” which was released March 13th and has since then been mentioned on the popular blogs Your EDM, EDM Tunes, and EARMILK. “Off My Back” marks a new stage in this singer/songwriters musical journey and is propelling her into the Alternative Pop Landscape.
Tang is now releasing her new single Stranger, produced by Slackbeatz, which will be a featured track on her forthcoming EP that is set to be released this May. Stranger is a melodic beauty that swells with luscious vocals, intricate percussion, and impeccable gritty synths that put you straight in your feels after the first drop. The lyrics are the hard hitting truth that anyone can relate to when someone you once knew becomes a stranger. This hip-hop/r&b track presents Tang in a new light that displays the depths in which an artist can grow.
“I wrote this song trying to expand my writing abilities without losing who I am as a writer. It stemmed from being really honest and open about a relationship and then I brought it to Slack and he gave the song life. The idea of someone who you’ve been close with for a long time becoming a stranger is one of the most shocking feelings I’ve experienced. The hip hop/r&b style of this song is something I’ve never done before and it may be unexpected but it is a true representation of who I am right now and what is inspiring me. I love r&b as much as I love any other genre I listen to. This track has been so fun to make and I hope people have fun with it. “ - Chloe Tang
Whoo! Chloe Tang Music made it on the Fresh Electronic playlist on Spotify on their #1 spot! Congrats are in order for her and if you want to check out her song, check out the link below!

Thoreau has been hitting 2018 hard with releases of ‘Like We Used To’ (ft. Jeris) and his rework of Drake’s ‘God’s Plan’, which was featured on The Chainsmoker’s Nice Hair SiriusXM Radio Show, received high marks from YourEDM, EDMTunes, and Dancing Astronaut, and also received a #1 on Hype Machine for Remixes (#2 overall). In ‘God’s Plan’ Thoreau masterfully remade the track into a high energy tune and allowed his fans a little more insight to his life, from nods to his cat and snowboarding, to telling us that he has an EP on the way in the summer. He also allowed us to start seeing him as not just a producer but as the whole package.
Thoreau now pairs up with the powerhouse Denver local Chloe Tang for ‘Off My Back’, which is a melodic beauty that swells with luscious guitar, intricate percussion, and impeccable gritty synths that put you straight in your feels after the first drop. Chloe’s voice then dances all over the track as she effortlessly carries each note from high to low as if she was born to do this.
“To me, 'Off My Back' represents a turning point in any relationship when things become really clear and you realize that you're not being treated the way you deserve. This song is special for me because I was in a place in my life where my alter ego (who is fucking fearless) was finally becoming part of the real me and I was no longer afraid of demanding better for myself.” - Chloe Tang
Chloe, who grew up playing both piano and guitar, will be releasing part of her second EP later this month where she brings more maturity and character, as well as variety, to her ever-expanding repertoire in hopes of creating a truly unique and genuine alternative pop experience.
“This track was nothing but a pleasure to work on. Chloe and I met up and cut the vocals in under two hours and the song was pretty much in place after that. Hope you guys vibe with it as much as we did!”
As far as Thoreau goes, this track comes as the last one for a while that he will pair up with another vocalist outside of himself, as he starts to craft his sound as a hip-hop singer/songwriter. With lots of content locked and loaded, Thoreau can’t wait to start sharing with the world what he’s been brewing.
Avenhart has always remained true to the root of their name: heart. The folk bluegrass band began their rise in the Denver music scene a few years ago in the halls of CU Denver. Despite the notoriety of the difficulty of the scene, the band has persisted and flourished.
“It kind of started as a passion project,” lead singer Andrea says. “Over time, we started to ask, ‘Is this serious?’” The band has gone through several members, which has been a challenge in itself. “Every time someone new comes in, it’s like a completely different vibe because we’re so close—we have to be.” Avenhart’s current lineup is more than dynamic; all the members are passionate and work well together onstage to put on a great show. Fans seem to think so too, because the band sold out the Larimer Lounge last weekend. Their next step? Rumor has it, The Bluebird.
Avenhart’s goals have grown with their dreams. With the help of CAM Records, they’ve expanded their pursuit of success and the future looks bright no matter where it takes them. “We’re just going to keep making music and putting out content and trying to reach further and further out of our Denver bubble and keep going.”

"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." Click here to read the rest of the article by Chris Casey for CU Denver Today.
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.”
