The truth is that John Statz got his heart broken in 2017. And another truth is that he did it to himself. Unpacking the pain and understanding the reasons behind a failed relationship led the Denver-based singer-songwriter to record his most intimate album to date, tracked in his living room with some of his closest friends. Ernest Hemingway once gave the advice that one should, “write hard and clear about what hurts”, and so John did. John takes us into the steep terrain of desire, hope, and longing that sometimes lingers beyond the defined end of a relationship. We retrace our steps. We look at what we thought we knew. We ultimately discover and face the truth under the stories we told ourselves along the way. Darkness on the San Juans is a pause for reflection, and then it is an open road back to oneself. One of the more prolific young songwriters working in the Folk/Americana genre today, John Statz has released eight studio albums and performed all over North America (including Canada and Mexico) and Europe, all in just twelve years’ time. The Boston Globe has called John’s music electric, urgent folk; aching, sweet country-rock while American Songwriter has said that he writes the kind of songs that float through your mind and stay nestled in your thoughts long after listening. On his last three albums John worked with some of the best producers in the genre: Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams, Greg Brown), Jeffrey Foucault, and Megan Burtt. For this go around, John invited Nathan Edwards—a former college buddy who is now a recording technology professor at their alma mater, The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh—to co-produce an elemental, heartfelt acoustic record.
Raised in the small community of Jamestown, CO, Kate Farmer can’t remember a time she wasn’t immersed in music. She grew up listening to her mother’s clear falsetto harmonizing with Nanci Griffith, Alison Krauss and Bonnie Raitt, instilling in her a deep love of strong female voices and heartfelt songwriting. After much encouragement at a young age, her first performance was at 9 years old where she brought several hippies to tears…and she hasn’t stopped since.Continuing to combine her love of family and community with music, Kate performs as one half of The Farmer Sisters with her sister Sara Jane, and as a member of The Constellation Collective. Writing original songs on her acoustic guitar, her style feels soulful and bluesy with folk and Americana influences. In any genre, her voice alone could make you cry.
Lindsey’s songwriting weaves between poetic symbolism and homespun storytelling. She arrived in Colorado in 2015 by way of Nashville, TN where she studied Music at Belmont University. Her studies led her to teach music in public schools, as well as pursue singing and songwriting in multiple venues across Nashville. She is currently working on a recording project with her band ELMR, and can be found playing in listening rooms all across the Colorado Front Range.
