Peter Muller
Peter Muller
Never one to be conventional, singer-songwriter Pete Muller’s journey has taken him from being hailed as a quant investing pioneer to performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Through it all, he is committed to creating a musical platform that provides inspiration and encouragement to others. Whether partnering with the Berklee College of Music on the revitalization of New York City’s storied Power Station recording studio or joining forces with various charities on his previous album releases, Pete is building a music career based on the idea of connecting with others to share a positive vision for the future. Chronicled by the likes of The New York Times and Forbes and influenced by artists such as Billy Joel, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, and Elvis Costello, Pete brings his own, unique style to his most recent release, “Two Truths and A Lie,” produced by two-time Grammy winner, Rick DePofi. As a singer, songwriter, and pianist, Pete continues to push the boundaries of what one can achieve through music as he prepares material for a new album release in Summer 2018.
Dave Tamkin
Dave Tamkin
Singer/Songwriter, Dave Tamkin, currently resides in Boulder, CO. Dave Tamkin, has created his own unique style of rhythmic-acoustic rock that's based around a fresh musical vision. His shows vary from intimate solo acoustic performances to a full band experience encapsulating a mixture of personal lyrics and skilled songwriting set against a high-energy percussive backbone. While touring relentlessly all over the nation, he has shared the stage with Guster, Glen Phillips, The Samples, Rusted Root, Michael Galbicki, Butch Walker, Matt Wertz, Eric Hutchinson, Stroke 9, The Violent Femmes, Fountains of Wayne, Vertical Horizon, Will Hoge, Stephen Kellog and The Sixers, Willy Porter, Freddy Jones Band, Brian Vanderark, Rhett Miller of the Old 97s, and Carbon Leaf to name a few. Tamkin has a style that's hard to resist. His lyrics are unabashedly honest and his passion for playing is undying. He is currently touring nationally solo and plays the mid west with his band. Dave Tamkin and Co. create a distinct sound. Their equal parts create a sonic percussive assault mixed with a vivid, melodic instrumental bed, shaken with a twist of passionate vocal lines. And they'll make you shake your ass.
Shelly Rollison
Shelly Rollison
Shelly Rollison is an alternative rock/folk artist based in Denver, CO. She picked up a guitar in junior high and hasn’t stopped playing since, but music was always in the background. It wasn’t until recently in her early thirties that she began to truly delve into singing and songwriting. Better late than never.

Shelly’s first solo acoustic EP, Mountains, released in 2016. She spent 2016 getting her feet wet performing in Denver, all the while writing new songs and falling in love with all the beautiful people making music and baring their souls through their art in Denver.

In 2016, she also released an EP of Christmas cover songs titled, Gather Round: It's Christmas Time. She has three upcoming singles set to release in 2017, with another EP slated to be recorded and released summer of 2017 with a full band.
Andrew Sturtz
Andrew Sturtz
When singer/songwriter Andrew Sturtz isn’t playing folk, jazz and soul in local Boulder venues, he’s out on the festival circuit, bringing his potent voice to stages like the Riverlights Festival in South Bend, IN; The Traverse City Microbrew & Music Festival in Traverse City, MI; and ARISE Festival in Loveland, CO.

Since his first gigs at only 12 years old and recording an EP as a teenager, Andrew has captured audiences with his ability to shift seamlessly between soulful acoustic music and fronting bands from multiple genres. From residencies in Boulder, CO staples No Name Bar and The Laughing Goat coffeehouse to more prominent appearances as Walnut Room in Denver and Uncommon Ground in Chicago, his precise guitar grooves and seemingly limitless voice inspire comparisons to scene favorites such as Martin Sexton and Amos Lee, among others.

In addition to appearances and collaborations around the Boulder area, Andrew has an album in the works, due Spring 2018. You can find videos of his performances at www.sturtzmusic.com and samples of his recorded songs at www.soundcloud.com/sturtzmusic.
Dan Craig
Dan Craig
Colorado Native Dan Craig is steadily becoming a staple for Denver's local music lovers. His sound, landing somewhere between Josh Ritter and Damien Rice, seems to capture emotion with brilliance and has the ability to whisk you away with every song.

Like good wine, each release from Craig shows striking maturity with carefully crafted words. Dan's live shows range from the classic solo guitar set up to a varying ensemble featuring cello and mandolin, making his unique sound even more captivating. Simply put, Dan Craig's music feels like home.

After a stint away from Colorado to attend the University of Pennsylvania, Dan returned to his hometown to settle in and share his music. Dan Craig's music has recently been featured on the hit show "One Tree Hill" and has shared the stage with many artists including Gregory Alan Isakov, Mike Doughty (Soul Coughing), Ari Hest and Katie Herzig in the past year.

From New York to LA, this touring independent artist gained a steady and loyal following all over the country and abroad. With singles like 'Alchemy', 'Solid Ground' and 'Enough', Dan Craig's new record due out August 2010 is a shoe in for playlists this fall. Among other things, Dan is on the verge of releasing his fourth full-length record, Alchemy, with a fifth and solo record due out Christmas 2010.
