Formed in the summer of 2010, One Flew West delivers a live show that hits you in the face with the force equivalent to a kick from John Claude Van Damme. Blending the sounds of rock and roll with folk and pop, the band is a force to be reckoned with. OFW was a Top 3 Finalist in Channel 93.3's Hometown for the Holidays 2014, with their single entitled "Kind of Love". In the spring of 2015, they also performed at Channel 93.3's Keggs & Eggs 10 Year Anniversary. They band won a Westword Music Award under the Folk category in 2015.
One Flew West has performed with many notable acts, including: The Dirty Heads, 3OH!3, The Devil Makes Three, Brick+Mortar, Joywave, The Unlikely Candidates, Saints of Valory, Barcelona, and the Spill Canvas.
In addition, One Flew West has performed at and headlined Colorado's most popular concert venues including the Fox Theatre, The Aggie Theatre, The Marquis Theater, Summit Music Hall, and the Gothic Theatre.
In July of 2015, OFW recorded a new EP entitled "Selective Memory" with producer Andy Rok Guerrero (Flobots, Bop Skizzum, Andy Rok and the Real Deal) and engineer Jeff Kanan (No Doubt, Madonna, Kelly Clarkson) which will be released on October 29th.
Red Fox Run
Red Fox Run is a high energy and emotionally earnest rock band based out of Denver, Colorado. Founding members Daniel (vocals, guitar) and Joshua (lead guitar) have played together since 2009, when beards were patchy and hygiene was questionable. Red Fox Run was coined in the summer of 2011 with dreams to inspire and encourage through music. Young guns Seth (bass) and Caleb, (drums) bring the thunder to the fresh, gritty brand of rock and roll.
After their debut release [take]ctrl in 2011 Red Fox Run had the privilege of playing shows and festivals with a handful of ear-perking bands such as Walk the Moon, Lord Huron, Mud Honey, The Outfit, and many more. In the midst of rigorous performances, Red Fox Run signed on with Cherry Sound Records to record their second album Skeletons, in 2012. Since the release, Red Fox Run has appeared in several magazines including a front page feature of the Colorado Music Buzz, radio play on Denver’s 93.3, and CPR’s Open Air, while still busy performing and sculpting their vision of authentic rock.
In the secret underground laboratory of Dr. Otto Von Cousticon, a freak accident transformed four ordinary men into a band of infinite power: CHEMISTRY CLUB. Hailed by TheKnifeFight.com as "so undeniably catchy that it is almost impossible not to play at full volume," their blend of theatrical pop and electronic rock stands as humanity’s last hope. Jeff, with the power of science. Jake, with the power of science. Dylan, with the power of science. Micah, with the power of heart. Together, they are CHEMISTRY CLUB.
You Me & Apollo
You Me & Apollo’s second full-length release, Sweet Honey, opens on a note of worldliness that might seem precocious coming from a 24-year-old. But band founder and songwriter Brent Cowles’s experience belies his tender age. He started playing in bands when he was 14, got married at 18, divorced at 20, and has filled the intervening years with a non-stop regimen of national touring and recording. So when he sings “I learned my lesson young,” on the characteristically raucous “Open Doors,” it’s safe to say he comes by it honestly.
“Cowles is a scrawny, wiry 23-year-old with frizzy hair and a shy countenance, but behind the mic he sounds like a haggard, middle-aged man with struggle and strife in his rear-view mirror.” -Ricardo Baca, The Denver Post
Since the band’s well-received 2011 debut, Cards With Cheats, the unmistakable stamp of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding-style soul has made You Me & Apollo something of a friendly anomaly among the foot- stomping roots-folk renaissance that launched the careers of their Denver colleagues The Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Gregory Alan Isakov. Sweet Honey is an ambitious attempt to reconcile these two strains of influence in the service of a restlessly contemporary sound that would fit alongside Brett Dennen, Neil Young, and Ennio Morricone on any playlist. A rich goulash of instrumental flourishes accompanies the well-traveled vocals: sinister trumpet melodies, jaunty Wurlitzers, and harmonies that suggest choirboys with jugs of moonshine smuggled under their robes.
Sweet Honey, the long-awaited follow-up to a self-titled EP released early in 2013, was produced and engineered by Jeff Powell (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Big Star, and Sharon Jones) at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN, where Cowles enlisted the help of long-time You Me & Apollo touring bandmates Tyler Kellogg (drums), Jonathan Alonzo (guitar), Morgan Travis (guitar), and Dave Cole (bass). To help cover the recording costs, the band created a homemade community funding campaign that raised over $20,000. To capture the energy and excitement of a well-constructed live show, honed over the course of 200 shows in a calendar year with bands like Dr. Dog, Devotchka, ZZ Ward and Young the Giant, the record was tracked almost entirely live.
