DASH
DASH
DASH is a progressive electro-soul duo, featuring lush synths, live keys, bass, and guitar, dynamic electronic percussion, and their signature vocal harmonies.

DASH began in February 2018, after lead members Kayti Korte and Ben Morris began writing songs together. The vocal powerhouse duo aimed for a full band sound rooted in rock 'n roll, soul, and funk. The band played their first show in March 2018, and released their debut single, 'Apathy', in May 2018, followed by their debut album, 'SUPER', in October 2018. 'SUPER' is the sound of that first, fiery rock band. Upon releasing their debut album, DASH hit the road. In their first year they were named "Best New Local Band" and had the #2 "Best New Album" by the Bozeman Magazine.

On January 1st, 2019, DASH lost their drummer, immediately after replacing their bass player. Not being able to find a replacement two weeks out from a tour, they were pushed to find alternatives to keep moving. An entire tour with MIDI drums spurred their EP 'Desperate Electric into existence. After losing their second bass player, the pair took to the studio themselves, recording everything themselves, and co-producing the EP with local producer Patch William.

After touring all spring, going through seven drummers, and three bass players, DASH hits the road in their current form; progressive electro-soul, foreshadowed by their EP 'Desperate Electric'. DASH hits the road this summer to bring their unique style to a stage near you
Native Station
Native Station
With their EP "Bones N' All", Native Station's eclectic blend of alternative-rock, pop, and reggae undertones will have you dancing and singing along to catchy choruses with a driving accompaniment.

Originating in Marion, Virginia, Greg Benton (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar) and Thomas Troutt (Lead Guitar) uprooted themselves for the diverse Colorado Music scene. After meeting with Brett Cunningham (Bass), Nick Solga (Drums), and Brandon Clark (Keyboards), Native Station was formed. With their first EP "Bones N' All" released to favorable critique on Bolder Beat, the band then garnered radio play on iHeart Radio's 94.9 Locals' Lounge with their debut single "All My Friends."

In June of 2017, the band released a 17-track Mixtape, "shifty.SHIFTY {The Harvest Sessions}." Vibrant, electrifying, soulful, and comprised mostly of material played live in 2016, the mixtape embellishes on full orchestrations of the live band arrangements. After playing notable North Colorado venues such as The Aggie Theatre, Dickens Opera House, and Larimer Lounge, Native Station continues to write new material and are planning a tour in the Fall of 2018 to promote the release of their upcoming double-single Lightframe/TallTales.

GRASSROOTS WESTERN ROCK AND BLUES
Since their formation in 2015, the members of Silver And Smoke have been blazing a trail in a genre they’ve coined as “Western Rock.” The Colorado-grown quartet draw from a variety of influences, including: blues, classic rock, soul, folk, country, punk, bluegrass, jazz, and classical - making their music one fiery combination.


In their first three years, members Ty Bray (vocals/guitar), Dino Ianni (lead guitar/saxophone), Tanner Boyle (drums), and Rick Brown (bass) have released three EPs (Workhorse - 2015, Marking Time - 2016, 30P - 2018), produced three music videos, toured across most of America, played on the radio all across North America (including Canada!), worked as a house band/rhythm section for a recording studio, and received sponsorship from Colorado based companies LivWell Enlightened Health and Native Gorilla. Support in their hometown of Denver continues to grow, and Silver And Smoke shows no signs of stopping.

In early 2019, Silver And Smoke’s third and most recent studio release, “30P” (thirty P) was voted “Best Colorado Release of 2018” on Chris K’s Colorado Playlist (KRFC, KDNK, KOTO, KSUT, KLZR, KCMJ, KAFM, KOYC, KHEN, KZYR, and KJAC).

Through their tireless passion and fierce dedication to their music, Silver And Smoke accompany their accomplishments through their belt-all, soul-on-the-stage performances and love for their fans. Time after time, they fill up venues and prove themselves as wildly seasoned musicians who are Colorado’s next big thing.

In the band’s own words:

"This band is basically the only thing we think about. Between booking shows, planning tours, rehearsing, recording, promoting, managing, and finding time between all those things to write songs, Silver And Smoke is pretty much our whole life. It's so worth it though, we just love playing and being a part of the Denver music scene."
