Antonio Lopez has the "it" factor. There are those in the know, and those who don't know yet. His acoustic soul and modern folk sound garners comparison to artists such as Amos Lee and Paul Simon. A sixth generation Coloradan, Antonio was born and raised in Alamosa and now resides in Longmont. He has released three albums independently and plays 200 shows a year. Previous accolades include song of the year winner in The Southwest Independent Music Awards. Antonio has collaborated with artists such as folk luminaries Don Conoscenti and Daniel Valdez (Santana, Linda Ronstadt).
Allie Chipkin is a Poughkeepsie native singer-songwriter based in Boulder, CO. Allie's premier album, Honey & Knives (2014), was released in 2014 as a part of her college capstone project. Allie is working on her sophomore EP, Cascades, set to release in winter 2018.
Listeners draw comparisons to Sara Bareilles, Joni Mitchell, and Fiona Apple. Allie's pure, soaring vocals will immediately catch your ear, but her gut-stirring lyrics will keep you around to listen. Fellow songwriter Mitchel Evan put it best when he said Allie Chipkin songs feel like a "full brain massage." The richness of her musicality nourishes the artistic right-brain, while her words call awake the left brain's intellect. Through all the depth, though, Allie finds levity and fun in her music. Expect to chuckle and feel deeply - all at once - during her live performance.
David Burchfield is a singer-songwriter based in Denver, CO. Inspired by the American songbook from Woody Guthrie to Jeff Tweedy to Jason Isbell, Burchfield weaves together a rich texture of diverse influences to create an innovative folk sound that sounds simultaneously fresh and deeply rooted. The Deli called Perseids "a ten-track cornucopia of gentle, rustic charm and swirling, harmonic grace...To label the album as “Americana” is far too broad a brushstroke; Perseids is 33 minutes of comfort food for the ears and the soul."
David began playing tambourine in the church band alongside his father at the age of 5, and his love for making music grew from there. Writing and performing songs in his boyhood home of Kansas City, Burchfield built a steady following of ardent fans of his unique blend of Americana influences. Burchfield has played the Middle of the Map Fest, was featured in the Chevy Music Showcase, and has shared bills with Noah Gundersen, David Ramirez, and Joe Pug.
Now living in Colorado, Burchfield is emerging from a long hiatus - writing and recording a new batch of songs and playing shows in Colorado and throughout the West.
Kyle Donovan is a singer-songwriter based in Denver, Colorado. He's performed in over twenty-five cities on solo tours from coast to coast and been featured by national publications like American Songwriter Magazine. Radio stations, blogs, magazines, and newspapers have applauded his "spare, acoustic, and infectious" sound along the way.
His latest release, titled The Kindness of Strangers, has been praised by American Songwriter Magazine, The Prelude Press, and Marquee Magazine here in Denver: "With an absolutely astounding vocal range, Miles Wide singer Kyle Donovan sounds like the long lost love-child of Carly Simon and Art Garfunkel. The acoustic instrumentation that supports him is lovely, but over and over Donovan’s voice is what draws all of the attention, and for great reason. It’s beautiful."
