Augustus
Augustus
Harvested from the most significant American musical movements and rooted in truly good songwriting, the distinct Denver psych-rock quartet Augustus is taking Colorado by storm. Formed in late 2013, Augustus released their debut EP, "The Common Collapse", to critical and commercial success and has been building a steady following due to their extensive gigging and captivating live shows.

In 2015, the group released their second EP, 'Into Frames' which was called "Colorado’s strongest psych-rock/mashup album of 2015." by Colorado Music Buzz. It debuted on over 50 different college radio stations across the US and Canada. Their hit song ‘Return’ was ranked #9 on the Troubadour’s Road top 25 songs of 2015 and the album has been licensed for use by MTV, E! channel, and the Discovery channel.

The band kicked off 2016 with high profile festival appearances in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins, and has begun playing festivals in surrounding states. Released in October 2016, Augustus' 3rd album, 'The Mercury EP' marks a turning point for the band. Marquee Magazine said "It’s the perfect example of the group’s ability to take their multi-faceted sound and put forth something that no longer sounds like a blending of styles, but rather a succinct, continuous sound of their own." The album has again been licensed by major networks including AE, MTV, and the Discovery channel.

2017 saw the band morph into the 4 piece, full time touring, rock outfit that they were destined to be. They toured the Big Sky region, played SXSW in Austin, and capped off a 22 day, 19 city tour that brought them to major markets like Chicago, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Boston. The band is currently tracking their 4th album.
Foxfeather
Foxfeather
Foxfeather is a sultry alt-americana band founded in Boulder, CO in 2013. Beginning with a lyrical base, and bolstered by strong blues-rock instrumentals, Foxfeather’s unique sound captivates their audience. The band consists of Carly Ricks Smith (lead vocals), Laura Paige Stratton (acoustic/electric guitars, keys, vocals), and is often supported by various instrumentalists for a full rock sound. Foxfeather is a local staple in the Colorado Front Range, and also tours nationally. The band released their EP, Foul Moon, in 2014. In response to this release The Marquee stated that “the group is overflowing with talent” and “Carly Ricks Smith has a spectacular voice which lies somewhere between the folky soprano of a young Joni Mitchell and the jazz-heavy range of Lake Street Dive’s Rachel Price. It’s powerful as well as delicate.” Andy Eppler of The Prairie Scholars said “it’s sexy. It’s original. These women have crafted something very special and instantly likeable on this album.” The band released their first full length, self titled album in October of 2016, which Rooster magazine described as "time warping...it's an emotional ride into the forest of folk with low-hanging country branches slapping you in the face without apology... its got a good thing going" (Rooster Magazine).
Hugh Manatee
Hugh Manatee
Brought together by our shared love of music and szechuan dipping sauce, the hughmans of Hugh Manatee started playing as one in early 2017 and immediately became an inseparable jamfam. Offering a fusion of rock, progressive, funk, reggae, and americana elements with an improvisational feel, we draw inspiration from a breadth of styles to create a unique and energetic sound that's sure to get you groovin'.
Famous Men
Famous Men
Famous Men is a roots/folk/rock band from Boulder, CO. The band focuses on the folk tradition of songwriting paired with the live performance and energy of rock and roll.

The trio features the slide guitar and vocals of Hunter Stone and a rhythm section of singers; Joe Plante (Bass) and Joshua Thomas (Drums). The three musicians met in 2017 and started honing their live performances through busking on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder. Playing on the street, the group learned how to use high energy sets, danceable grooves and three-part harmonies to stop people in their tracks.

Famous Men takes its name from a non-fiction literary work by James Agee called "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men." In this book, Agee chronicles the stories of poor white southern tenement farmers during The Great Depression, telling the story of people who would be forgotten by time. The idea of the title is all people are famous in their own right and we impress the generations around us.

Famous Men's debut record features performances by notable guests including Bridget Law (Fiddle; formerly of Elephant Revival), Jeb Bows (Fiddle; Gasoline Lollipops, Gregory Alan Isakov) and Chris Plante (Keys; The Brew). The release, slated for spring 2018, sounds like early Stones going on a bender with The Wood Brothers, The Black Keys and Ryan Adams.
