Growing up in the mountains of Colorado, Julian fostered a music appreciation reflective of the world around him – raw, rootsy, and rich with colors. His music gathers elements from country blues, old r&b and folk music and combines them with a groove-based, indie rock sound.
Peterson’s compelling stage presence is that of an old bluesman. He carries an intense passion beyond his years, trading between soulful vocals, and sweet solo melodies with his 1960’s Gibson. He leads his own trio -Nick D’Agostino (drums) and Reuben Cainer (bass), two dynamic players who aren’t afraid to get dirty and electric, or quiet and tender as the rest of them.
Peterson’s played thoroughly in the New York circuit, as well as in folk and blues festivals along the east coast. He has toured nationally as well, including the first national tour of Greenday’s musical “American Idiot,” where he performed as their guitarist. After living in New York/Brooklyn for seven years, he recently found himself back in his home state of Colorado, performing his own music, and providing guitar support for Megan Burtt & The Cure for Love, and Tape Bleed (formerly Professor Fox Band).
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."
Chicago Singer/Songwriter, Dave Tamkin, currently resides in Boulder, CO. He has created his own unique style of rhythmic-acoustic sounds that's based around a fresh musical vision. His shows vary from intimate solo acoustic performances to a full band experience (DTCO) encapsulating a mixture of personal lyrics and skilled songwriting set against a high-energy percussive backbone.
He's shared the stage with Guster, The Samples, Rusted Root, Donavon Frankenreiter, Butch Walker, Freddy Jones Band, Eric Hutchinson, Willy Porter, The Violent Femmes, and Peter Mulvey to name a few. Tamkin has a style that's hard to resist. His lyrics are unabashedly honest and his passion for playing is undying.
A pure voice is a rare find and Theresa Peterson has found hers, both as a singer and a songwriter. Her smooth tone echoes the ease of singers like Joni Mitchell and Alison Krauss, floating between octaves with melodies that stretch the line between old and new.
Peterson's lyrics paint pictures, buckle knees and leave a sense of depravity and hope, wrapped up in unique chord structures and alternate tunings. She dives deep into the bottomless wells of love, death and life with her storytelling and touches the intangible through photographic lyrics. The final result leaves listeners with uniquely composed songs rich with imagery and sold with the soul of the singer.
