Dan Craig: In Dust Bowls

It’s rather surprising that Dan Craig even has time these days to put out a new record. Besides being one of Denver’s premiere singer/songwriters, he’s also a med student, a husband, and recently a new father. Actually, though, this gem of an EP, In Dust Bowls, already had the groundwork laid for it. According...

Playing catch-up? Read part 1, part 2 and part 3. Okay, okay. I know I said the Top Picks would be announced yesterday…sorry about that. It’s the holidays, and I do have  a family. ‘Nuff said. As I mentioned before, I’m listing some of my favorite Denver acts and songs for 2011. Up until...

Best of Denver Locals 2011 (part 1)

It’s no secret that while I spotlight music from all over the world on this blog, I’m a particular fan of the Denver music scene. I’ve covered the music scene here for Examiner.com for a couple of years, and I’ve become friends with a lot of the local talent–and we do have some great...

The Rachel James You Haven’t Heard (Yet)

Back in April of this year, I got the chance to do a profile piece on Denver artist Rachel James for Examiner.com. During that interview, James talked about the difficult year she’d had, and how it was deepening her as a songwriter. Then, a few weeks ago, she sent me a copy of her...

Many people might be more familiar with the name Boulder Acoustic Society than they are with the name Aaron Keim. That’s because Boulder Acoustic Society has been making a name for itself as a progressive band in the bluegrass/roots/neo-folk world over the past several years.

Tyler James: A New Spin on Old Soul

Singer/songwriter Tyler James is a bit of an anomaly.  His bio says he grew up in the Pacific Northwest and in Iowa, and currently hails from Nashville.  But spin his debut record It Took the Fire, and you’d swear he was from Memphis.  And maybe from the 1970s. Don’t misunderstand–James’ blue-eyed soul has a...

Lindsay Aline: The Familiar and the New

When I was contacted by someone from Lindsay Aline‘s team to review her 2009 self-titled record, I have to admit I was a little skeptical. Taking a look at the website and reading the self-written bio, I couldn’t help but think, Oh, great–another young girl who thinks she’s got it. Yeah, I know it...

Joshua Novak: Dead Letters

One cool thing about indie music is the diversity and creativity you find in it.  Two indie acts can easily sound like they are worlds apart.  The flip side, though, is that sometimes indie music can be so far on the creative margins that not many people can relate to it.  It takes a...
