Smokestack Relics can only be defined as a dirty swamp rock band.The two brothers sing about livin', lovin', dyin' and the hell down below. The band is stripped down to her bare essentials creating a raw roots feel. When they're not playing in Denver you may find them playing throughout the grand ol' South and Midwest, scrapin up enough cash to make it to the next show with coffee and cigarettes in hand.
The Back Pages
The Back Pages started off with Tim Kelley coming home from Iowa City, Iowa, back to La Junta. Tim got back together with Charlie Hayden and Patrick Stedman, who have been friends and band mates since they were 13. After a while of writing songs and composing music, they made an EP called, "Shifts" in 2011, and played a handful of shows in support of it. After some time away for family, the band regained momentum in 2015 and wrote a full batch of songs this time around. The resulting album, "A Few More Ways to Live" was recorded, mixed and mastered by The Back Pages over the winter of 2015-16, at BarnHouse Studios, in Rocky Ford, Colorado, and released under BarnHouse Records in April. The Back Pages played a long list of dates in support of, "A Few More Ways to Live" between June and September of 2016, during which time they picked up a long time friend Tyler Trumble on Bass. They then returned to the Studio in the winter with another long time Friend, Luc Richard, to write a follow up effort...To Be Continued.
Charlie and Patrick are both Certified Audio Engineers and graduates of The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Gilbert, AZ.
Scotty & The Late Nights
Originating as folk punk duet from Idaho Springs, Colorado, the band grew in to a full four member band after a move to the Denver area allowed for more involvement in the local music scene. With all four members drawing from a different musical background, the group has developed in to something more fun and involved than the original members could have ever hoped for.
