Ghost Light
Ghost Light
Ghost Light is a true musical collaboration; five personalities, five perspectives, and five unique approaches towards one common sound.

Bucking conventional tradition, rather than initially focusing on live shows, the band played together for the first time in a recording studio in Philadelphia. This decision gave the band’s members - Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen and Scotty Zwang - the ability to come to the project with fresh ears and no pre-conceived notions. They developed the songs as they developed their musical communication which led to trust, creativity and an adventurous take on the process. Scotty Zwang explained it thusly, “It’s a unique and interesting approach we get to take...” “we are being patient with each other and figuring out what the song needs”

While the recording project has been the beginning point for Ghost Light, the live experience is what will define this band. “In the parts of the sessions where we have had a little more room to just let things go, there have been these little glimmers of what the improvisation will feel like live. That’s a whole other thing and it’s very exciting,” notes Holly Bowling. Tom Hamilton adds, “with this new band, we felt super comfortable going in any direction, knowing that with our new bandmates, the songs will get to where they needs to go. And in the live setting, that confidence is just as strong.”

The first half of 2018 will see the band playing major venues in major markets coast to coast, followed by heavy rotation on the festival circuit. The debut record will be released in the second half of the year and will be supported by an extensive tour. In 2018 you will get to know Ghost Light, and the future could not be brighter.
Envy Alo
Envy Alo
Born in the foothills of Boulder, CO in the fall of 2015, Envy Alo has quickly created a unique signature sound built on an array of diverse influences ranging from old school organ-trio jazz/funk to newer, heavier rock and fusion stylings.

Envy Alo is Aaron Pettine, Tyler Gwynn, and Kevin Hinder. Aaron and Tyler have been performing for years locally in a variety of Boulder bands including Booster and Tenth Mountain Division, respectively. Kevin recently transplanted to Boulder from the Baltimore, MD area, performing in a number of bands in MD and VA over the years.

Aaron and Kevin met in college, and shared a mutual appreciation for the diverse styles of music each enjoyed, and linked up with Tyler after hearing the thunderous drumming of the TMD driving force. After a few jam sessions the three had an undeniable chemistry, and quickly had a nucleus of original songs crafted. With numerous upcoming gigs throughout the front range, stay tuned as this group continues to evolve and develop into a crazed funkadelic dance party for your eardrums.
