Adrienne O
Adrienne O
Adrienne O (“Adrienne Oh”) is a female-fronted, 80's-influenced synth pop-rock trio from Denver influenced by artists like Florence + the Machine and OneRepublic.

Vocalist/bassist Adrienne Osborn is now a vocal coach, but was previously a world-ranked waterskier and a software developer. Guitarist/producer Justin Long is the former guitarist for Atlantic Records band No Address, which released a single that stood at #11 on the Billboard charts for 22 weeks. Craig DeLeone, drummer and multi-instrumentalist, currently runs a music program for underprivileged kids at the non-profit Devereux Colorado and is a community group member of the music-based non-profit Youth On Record.

Adrienne O and their music have been featured on 93.3's Locals Only show, The Colorado Sound, Channel 8 TV's Denver Loft Sessions, Literati Records podcasts, Callywood Radio, multiple KGNU Innervision Top 30 Countdowns, and the 2013 BolderBOULDER Bootlegs CD. The band has also played as the main stage of the 2013 CHUN People's Fair and the 2013 JeffCo Fair, the 2013 Taste of Colorado, the 2013 BoulderBOULDER, and the 2013 Denver Post UMS; and was a finalist in the 2013 Rocky Mountain Battle of the Bands.

The band released their first EP, SUPERCHROMATIC, in July 2013. A single from that EP, “Two and Two,” won the Colorado Music Business Organization's songwriting contest in the Pop category and was the single featured in their first music video, produced by Perplexity Pictures. Another song from the album, “Someone Like Me,” was placed in full-length feature film A Remarkable Life.

Adrienne O released their second EP, a 7-song album called Lines, on June 14, 2014. The single “Take It In” has already been played on 93.3 KTCL's Locals Only station.

A series of related music videos is in the works for later in the year, and the trio is already hard at work on their next album, their first full-length album release.
Andy Palmer
Andy Palmer
"Andy Palmer is a former New York City public defender whose three years of living and working in the city's trenches clearly provided fodder for the painful truths and ruggedness of his alternative folk-rock sound.

His distinctively gritty vocals and hard luck tales have garnered him favorable comparisons to Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, and Leonard Cohen. Westword Magazine has listed his music as some of “Denver’s Best,” calling it “timeless” and “epic”. At the national level, Palmer was named the 14th best new independent artist of by Indie-music.com. Interstatelive.com says: “Voices like this have not come to the forefront of the music scene since the likes of Louis Armstrong and Tom Waits.” Jive Wired enthuses: "Andy Palmer is an amazing talent and his honest and raw vocals serve to superbly compliment his wonderful arrangements." Target Audience Magazine says: “Andy Palmer is an artist to keep an eye on.” In addition, his music has been featured in multiple independent films. Based in part on these notable successes, producer Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray) hand-selected Palmer to work with and produced Hazard of the Die.

Palmer was adopted at a young age and raised in the rural northeast on a small family farm. He has spent six winter months in near solitude in a yurt in Maine. He's lived on and volunteered at a Buddhist meditation retreat for many more months of silent meditation. He is a professionally trained massage therapist, river raft guide, and a licensed attorney. His songs capture and share these experiences through a unique blend of storytelling and poetry."
Roo & The Howl
Roo & The Howl
The word "roo" derives itself from the old english word for quiet, which when combined with "howl" provides a startlingly accurate description of Bekah Wagner, the Colorado songstress behind Roo & The Howl. Presently coming off a strong showing at this year's SXSW and preparing for her debut album release (5/20), Roo's music brings together sorrow and beauty in the best traditions of indie, folk and Americana.

Initially playing under her own name, Roo released an EP in 2012 and has gone on to play a slew of shows including opening for bands such as Ivan & Alysoha, Kopecky Family Band, Said the Whale, & The Apache Relay. Last summer she headlined her first tour covering 10 midwest cities including a stop at Daytrotter studios where her and the band laid down a session described by founder Sean Moeller as, "UNREAL good."

Named by Pigeons and Planes as one of "12 Female Artists You Should Know" alongside fellow artists like Daughter and Laura Mavula, Roo is drawing listeners in with spare, stirring music that swells the emotions and pleases the ear.
Matt Hoffman (of Strange Americans)
Matt Hoffman (of Strange Americans)
Matt Hoffman is an American folk rock musician who founded Strange Americans. Following the success of their 2012 release, A Royal Battle, Matt focused on a solo live and recording project, resulting in the forthcoming EP, Lateral Moves. A true musician, artist and visionary for the endeavor, Hoffman performed and recorded nearly all instrumental and vocal tracks on the record.
The songs dive deeply into an honest exploration of human experience and emotion, advocating a raw and simple-yet-meaningful perspective. While imaginatively descriptive in their landscape, the lyrics are packaged in the authenticity that fuels Hoffman’s real and passionate delivery, clearly connecting performer and audience.
On stage, Hoffman performs as a solo act, spouting out renditions of tunes that burst with emotive musicianship. The sheer dynamism and direction of the interplay between guitar and voice establish a remarkably rich and powerful texture; add a folky harmonica to the mix for an additional color in the palette and the result is a truly captivating, memorable live performance.
