The Railsplitters
The Railsplitters
In 2013, only days after their debut CD release, backed by an impressive $10,000+ Kickstarter campaign, The Railsplitters performed at Rockygrass and earned the title of "Best New Band." They would soon become a tried-and-true staple of the Colorado music scene.

In 2015, The Railsplitters went full-time and released its second album, The Faster It Goes. Since then, on the strength of their material —which carries enough mesmerizing bluegrass to appeal to the purists, enough freshness to land on the official Spotify Indie Bluegrass playlist and enough pop hooks to crossover to listeners who've never bought or streamed a bluegrass album—The Railsplitters have performed at some of the most prestigious bluegrass (and not bluegrass) festivals in the country, including Delfest, Green River Festival, Salmon Jam, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and Rockygrass; toured the UK twice and have opened for or co-billed with The Steeldrivers, Trout Steak Revival, Noam Pikelni, Aoife O'Donovan, Milkdrive, Dustbowl Revival, Front Country and more.

The band's fast rise from casual Colorado jammers to critically acclaimed national artists can only be explained by their melodic songwriting, featuring compositions from all 5 of the Railsplitters, who all double duty on harmonies, their impeccable musicianship and the songbird-like vocal of lead singer Lauren Stovall, whose expressive phrasing, spot-on pitch and perfectly-controlled vibrato make a voice that is both instantly recognizable and a throwback to the classic country/rock era of the 70's.
Front Country
Front Country
What started as a group of friends playing bluegrass in San Francisco's Mission District has morphed into a touring powerhouse of song and sound, transcending their humble stringband roots. Front Country's dynamic instrumental textures take flight with grace and gravitas while rooted in the relentlessly soulful vocals of lead singer-songwriter Melody Walker. Along with mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz, guitarist Jacob Groopman, violinist Leif Karlstrom and bassist Jeremy Darrow, this quintet has been called "passionately intoxicating" and "orchestral" and Melody's bluesy vocals have been described as "rafter-shaking". Seldom traditional, always original, Front Country's new album Sake of the Sound is out now.
Caribou Mountain Collective
Caribou Mountain Collective
Caribou Mountain Collective is a quartet from Nederland, Colorado. Their extensive original repertoire channels the rich traditions of both Appalachia and Colorado bluegrass. Their original lyrics and instrumental compositions present unique facets into americana. C.M.C. represents the next step in an ongoing revolution of roots music.

Though only together for two years, the C.M.C. has already established a strong presence in the music scene. Dobro player Allen Cooke was awarded first place at the 2013 Rockygrass dobro competition. Bassist Curly Collins brings his remarkable stage presence and industry expertise from his five years with Mountain Standard Time. Guitarist Miles Perry masterfully embodies the mountain heritage in his catalog of original works. Their instrumental expertise shines through Miles' songs to present a captivating new approach to a classic sound.
