Blue Mesa
Blue Mesa
Hailing from the Mile High City comes Denver's own five piece, Hard Rock Alternative band, Blue Mesa. Culminated from the perfect blend of melodic, yet fast-paced dualing guitar licks, magnetic vocals with confessional lyrics, a little funk behind the bass and just the right beat to get your heart racing...Blue Mesa has invented an organic and rare sound they are proud to call their own. They plan to take on the nation, summer 2017, with the upcoming release of their second album, "Origami".

Originating from guitarist, Matt DeJesus, and vocalist, Holli Smith, Blue Mesa was formed spring 2013 as a pop-punk alternative band, formerly known as Providence. For over a year, they played all over the local Denver scene, won a battle of the bands and began the recording of their first album, which came to be released October 24, 2014. It wasn't until an original member relocated that they began to change gears. Dan Delfs then took the reigns of bass, which began the dawn of a new era and a heavier sound for Blue Mesa. They went on to place in Hard Rock Rising's Battle of the Bands in 2015 and began recording a five-song EP set to be released in 2016. Blue Mesa then hit its hardest road block to date; the loss of their original drummer who left to pursue other avenues in life. But every ending sparks a new beginning. Dan Delfs took up his passion of guitar and joined Matt at the front, they recruited Alejandro Alamos on bass and Chris Gomez on drums. Fate proved itself in a year of change.

Now playing together for the better half of a year, Blue Mesa has been traveling Colorado, opening for national touring acts in their hometown of Denver and are gearing up for their first tour, summer 2017. Keep your eyes and your ears open, as their new CD "Origami" is on the horizon.

Brandon Higgins

Brandon grew up in Broomfield, Colorado. He received his first guitar right before he turned 14 years old. While he had been interested in music, and even practiced violin for a short time in his youth, the guitar struck a chord in his soul. He practiced daily throughout his teens, wrote his first songs, and, remarkably, was accepted into the top choir at his high-school his senior year. With no formal music education, he started his first band as high school ended and performed in Denver at the Gothic Theater for a 500 person crowd. Unfortunately, though he believed he had found his true calling, his decision to attend CU Boulder for a Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology Degree resulted in the loss of his musical companions. After almost three years of no musical consistency and with the support from his family, he decided to pursue music full-time based on a promise he had made to himself after deciding to attend University. That year was one of the most difficult he had ever experienced, and almost resulted in his surrender, but, he found Matthias and Andrew.

Andrew Wolfe

Andrew grew up in Lafayette, Colorado. He was introduced to music at a very early age, starting piano lessons before kindergarten. He went on to learn saxophone, playing in the concert and jazz bands in middle and high school, and then received his first bass at the start of college. Andrew was always a devoted musician, but dealt with depression that would interfere with his ability to access his creative energy. When that depression deepened as he worked towards his bachelor's in Math and Computer Science, the bass guitar is what eased the dread—he could sink into the music and just play for hours on end. Andrew always believed that music was a relevant part of his life, but after settling into the nine-to-five grind of his work as a mobile applications developer, he felt that flicker starting to dim. His joy and hopefulness for music was rekindled in the improvisation that initiated the organization of Darling Overdrive.

Matthias Mandl

Matthias is a drummer, and he’s known it since the beginning. He’s never missed an opportunity to tap out the rhythms that stream from his soul, and that becomes so apparent when you listen to him play. Growing up right outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Matthias was exposed to music through the churches he attended with his family and was influenced by the gospel genre that surrounded him. His formal education came with high school band and he stretched into using video based social media as a way to hone his skills in both drumming and recording. Matthias was torn from his home because his father found a better job in Colorado, but embraced the change, taking on the challenge of building relationships quickly in order to find other musicians to work with. Being the youngest in the group, Matthias has not attended a University, but balances the over-analytical thinking of Brandon and Andrew with pure, fearless action.

We are Darling Overdrive.
