"Denver-based trio SIR describe their own sound perfectly as "sexy alternative pop rock." Even their emotional new track, "So Cold" is driven primarily by sweet, soulful vocals that flow with ease and a strong beat that'll have you bobbing your head along in no time. The group, made up of Sarah Angela, Kim O'Hara and Luke Mehrens are breathing a new, unique sound into their local music scene while working on their new album - one that fans will be able to hear more of in the coming months."
Shannon Shumaker, The Prelude Press

After recording in Los Angeles, CA for two months with Serenity West Studios (Adele, Jason Derulo, Justin Timberlake), SIR returned to Denver with a new sound. They have played Red Rocks Amphitheater (FOTR) and showcased four years in a row at SXSW. SIR's first single "Go" helped them gain recognition in Denver's vibrant music scene, but their second single "So Cold" is getting national attention.
Avifauna
Avifauna
Avifauna's sound is an Electro-Folk blend of atmospherics and hypnotic rhythms and harmonies, all centered around singer-songwriter Meagen Svendsen's dusky voice and introspective lyrics.
Automatic Iris
Automatic Iris
A soundtrack for the nights you’re too proud to give in to your regrets, Automatic Iris is an American rock band from Denver, Colorado. The band’s original pop songs, drawing from indie rock, folk, new wave and alt-country, incorporate sweet harmonies, filthy distortion and occasional garage-rock freak outs. Each Automatic Iris performance includes tales of smart people making poor decisions, songs of heartbreak, geography and always… always… Science Minute with Courtney, a highly educational, strange but true scientific fact from our resident neuroscientist.

Songwriters Amanda Gonulsen and Michael Saul met in folk music school before going electric and subsequently getting expelled for distortion pedal abuse. In 2013 Amanda and Michael joined forces with multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and New Wave scholar Glenn Hermanson to form Automatic Iris. The full band features vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Courtney Wilson (formerly of The Belle Jar, The Far Stairs), and drummer Ryan Elwood (Natalie Walker, Voodoo Kings, Wonderlic).

Automatic Iris released their debut EP Escape Routes in May 2016.
