Idlewhile is a band lauded for blending an original Americana-flavored song-craft and a tight, upbeat live show. Now as a quartet comprised of founding members Steven Phoenix, Miguel Ramos and Paul Tedesco, and joined by percussionist Craig Naylon, Idlewhile embarks on its Eighth season in the Front Range music scene.
So often, Idlewhile's . orignal songs escape traditional genres, with elements of all the roots music (country and gospel, blues) as well as shiny-dark hues of modern indie music, and the occasional tip of the hat to psychedelic rockFrom the onset, Idlewhile has focused on original songwriting and an open and accessible rock n roll vibe, with a bit of pirate swagger for good measure.
Having logged hundreds of performances from Fort Collins to Steamboat to Denver's club scene and Underground Music Showcase (UMS, FoCo MX alumni), Idlewhile excels at filling the live bill, whether it be as a showcase/support for national acts, headlining and club/pub performances, or special event entertainment.
