Signs and Signals
"I feel like our message is really getting to the root of who you are and what it means to be an authentic honest human being. Everything Justin says is so raw and straight from the heart. That's the overall vibe I get from our art is that it is an expression of our authenticity as individuals. We're not trying to be somebody or something we're not and we write music that reflects what we feel."

Signs and Signals is a unique and catchy alternative rock band originally formed in Denver, Colorado in May of 2014. The band is on a collective mission to express the depths of being human; they are not afraid to face any amount of darkness or light in order to understand the infinite through their art. Frontman Justin Melton's voice, lyricism, and rawness hits you straight in the heart with passion and empathy. Their sound continues to rope you in with its strong melodies, layering of the guitar and keys, and an intricate rhythm section that makes you want to move. All this leads to an exciting and original brand of music unlike anything previously heard.

The music that Signs and Signals creates is an exploration into what it is to be an authentic individual; it is a representation of originality that rides the line between familiar and experimental. The boys of Signs and Signals explore music without hypocrisy or pretense, and their songwriting is a reflection of this honest approach toward creativity. They seek to express from the heart the highs and lows that everyone experiences throughout the roller coaster that is life, and the relatability of these emotions.

Brian and Jimmy continued to pursue their message through music as Signs and Signals after departing from former members Jason Kelly, John Ensey, and Ryan Fraser. SIgns and Signals has a new line up featuring Justin Melton on vocals, Brian Carpenter on lead guitar, Aaron German on keys & rhythm guitar, Spencer Church on bass, and Jimmy Fountain on drums. Each band member has varying musical backgrounds, ranging from classical training to the “by ear” technique, and their unique talents mesh to create a fantastic sound that sets them apart from other acts.

In 2015 Signs and Signals released their debut EP 'Human Again" and later the release of their single "Fight or Flight" with former frontman Jason Kelley. The band is frequently featured on 93.3 Locals Only; they have played Denver's Underground Music Showcase as well as major theater and bar venues throughout the Mile-High City."

Signs and Signals loves their fans and looks forward to sharing their creative vision with them.

With their EP "Bones N' All", Native Station's eclectic blend of alternative-rock, pop, and reggae undertones will have you dancing and singing along to catchy choruses with a driving accompaniment.
Originating in Marion, Virginia, Greg Benton (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar) and Thomas Troutt (Lead Guitar) uprooted themselves for the diverse Colorado Music scene. After meeting with Brett Cunningham (Bass), Nick Solga (Drums), and Brandon Clark (Keyboards), Native Station was formed. With their first EP "Bones N' All" released to favorable critique on Bolder Beat and My Random Jukebox, the band then garnered radio play on iHeart Radio's 94.9 Locals' Lounge with their debut single "All My Friends."

After playing the Longmont Artwalk and Denver's Larimer Lounge, Native Station released "Coal Seam Fire," a soulful ballad with many layers of tight vocal harmonies, intertwining guitars, and syncopated drum patterns. In June of 2017, the band released a 17-track Mixtape, "shifty.SHIFTY {The Harvest Sessions}." Vibrant, electrifying, soulful, and comprised mostly of material played live in 2016, the mixtape embellishes on full orchestrations of the live band arrangements.
