Foxfeather is a sultry, alt-americana band founded in 2013 in Boulder, CO . 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), Patrick Coleman (upright/electric bass, violin), Ben Batchelor (drums and percussion), and Ian Hendrick (electric guitar). 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," they "have crafted something very special and instantly like-able on this album." The BoulderBeat reviewed Patrick Coleman's presence on bass as "one of the biggest treats of their performance," with a "jazzy undertone that rightfully demanded its own attention." The band is set to release their first full-length, self-titled album, paired with a Colorado release tour in October of 2016.
Chella and the Charm
Originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin, folk singer-songwriter, Chella Negro, relocated to Colorado in August of 2000. Though spending the majority of the past decade living in Denver has certainly informed her songs with a spirit that can only be lifted from the ubiquitous concrete and glass of the city, the soul of a life spent growing up in a midwestern town remains the heartbeat of the music. Therein lies the inspiration for the title of her debut album, "Silos & Smokestacks." On "Silos & Smokestacks," the seemingly mutually exclusive elements of country heart and urban savvy fuse seamlessly into a collection of songs that is at once unique and comfortingly familiar. Having attempted to record the album previously in Brooklyn, NY, and with full band instrumentation, Chella scraped the early recordings in favor of a sound more representative of the spirit of her music; the only instruments to be found are her guitar and her voice. And reflected in her singing simultaneously are the pain of heartbreak, the joy and wonder of life, and the wisdom gained from experiencing both. Chella Negro's first statement is years in the making and faithfully carries the torch of singer-songwriter folk music past and current.
Broken Land, based in the foothills of Boulder, Colorado, is a new addition to the area’s dynamic music scene that strives to fray the fringes of the alternative country-rock genre. With an ever-expanding collection of original music ranging from straight-up rockers to straight-up country (and everything in-between), Broken Land's growing fan-base never really knows what to expect next.
The 6-piece outfit's shows deliver the power of original music, carefully crafted arrangements, and passionate performances to music lovers searching for something a little outside of the norm in the Colorado music scene.
Broken Land released its first self-titled full length CD in March 2016, followed by a 5-song EP entitled “Far And Away” in November 2016. The band continues to write and record new material and add live performances around the Boulder/Denver area with plans to expand its reach in 2017.
