Born in New York City and raised in Boulder, Colorado, The Fremonts weave Midwestern ghost stories into restless Americana music. Stephanie Dodd (originally from Fremont, Nebraska - vocals/keyboard/xylophone/accordion) and Justin Badger (originally from Fremont, California - vocals/guitar/kick drum) lace their sound with bluegrass, country, blues, folk and indie pop influences. By blending Dodd’s lyrical voice and Badger’s turbulent style, they take on a range of topics from sprawling tales of escape and ambition to quiet disenchantment with traditional roles in American family life. In their three years of creating music together, The Fremonts have unearthed fresh authenticity in their writing and performances through dedicated practice and community building.
“How do we get to the light, to the beauty and calm we see on the horizon? How do we tame the chaos of our hearts?' The Fremonts’ answer is to work your ass off to make your own place, and that’s exactly what they have done. They stake a claim, and they’re not giving it up."
-Libby Emmons, Spill Magazine
"The Fremonts are a Boulder-based band that know how to combine pretty and gruff in all the best ways. Dodd (vocals/keyboard/xylophone) has a gentle, soothing voice that guides you along their lyrical stories. And Badger (vocals/guitar/suitcase kick drum) brings in strong, turbulent tones. It’s a perfect fit."

With his gritty, raw voice and resonator guitar, Hunter Stone has spent the last years crafting his own style of folk-blues. His songwriting echoes the simple melodic beauty of folk music of the past and his lyrical content paints pictures of the world we see around us. Stone kicks things up with the stomp of a foot drum and the bent notes of a pinky slide, bringing his lyrics to life with the emotional honesty of his voice.
Singer/songwriter Pamela Machala ("MOCK-uh-luh") creates a delicious style of indie piano pop, influenced by her love of jazz and R&B. Her smooth, smoky voice and impressive piano chops recall the timeless pop sensibilities of Carole King, the subtle fusion of Norah Jones, and the eclectic lyricism of Regina Spektor. Her newest album, When I Get Home, was released in June 2015.
BoulderBeat says, "The grand takeaway from When I Get Home is this: Pamela Machala is a big, fresh talent to keep an eye on. Her musicality is as user-friendly as it is intricate, and Machala’s vocal performances are revelatory…It’s that catchy; it’s that well executed by Machala, who may be a transcendent talent; and it’s that well produced."
