Americana Roots Rock

In modern Colorado style we migrated to the Centennial state from all corners of the country to settle in beautiful Fort Collins.  Our roots stem from influences of classic country, Motown, jazz, surf, and classical that we acquired as youngins in our former home states.  Emily and Chris go way back, playing bars in the mountain towns.  Joel, having an extensive and varied history playing in bands, met Chris and Emily in Fort Collins in 2002 and quickly formed a musical bond that has stood the test of time.   Pete, joining up with the group in 2013, has brought it up a level with serious skills on the kit and knowledge of music theory.   The band collaborates on writing original material, each bringing their individual musical interests and skills to color the landscape of our sound.
