David Dondero
David Dondero
David Dondero is an American songwriter, guitarist, former lead singer of the band Sunbrain. In 2006, NPR's All Songs Considered named David one of the "best living songwriters" alongside Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Tom Waits.

Dondero started his musical career on drums at the age of 10, due in part to the fact that he "was always drumming on stuff with my hands". Dondero released four records with the Clemson, SC-based punk/hardcore band Sunbrain (three on Grass Records and one on Ghostmeat Records), before breaking up in 1995. The following year, Dondero joined This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb for nearly two years as their drummer. He left in 1998 to focus on his solo material. Dondero has toured with such acts as Crooked Fingers, Jolie Holland, Against Me!, The Mountain Goats, David Bazan, Preston School of Industry, Bright Eyes, Tilly and the Wall, Erik Petersen of Mischief Brew, Spoon, and Willy Mason. Dondero currently resides in Austin, TX.
Really Good Bad Boy
Really Good Bad Boy
Really Good Bad Boy is a soul seeking, pool slashing, twanging five-piece and a breath of fresh air in an overly polluted world of self righteous garage bands, lack luster one hit wonders, and teenage pop “sensations”. An undeniably country-western sound meets the wetness of surf and the truth of soul music. They’ve coined their sound as “Colorado Kool-Aid”.

For cowboy surfers, really good bad boys, really bad good girls, motorcycle champions, the forgotten, the lost, the found, for music lovers worldwide and throughout the universe.
Gun Street Ghost
Gun Street Ghost
Gun Street Ghost is a Denver-based Americana band with classic elements of country-based songs about the struggles of life, hard work, and drinking to numb the pain. 70's rock influences add electric guitar-driven songs and aggressive rhythmic aspects. The ambient textures of guitar swells and pedal steel slides intertwined with rhythm guitar and piano create a somber feel, while underpinning powerful vocal melodies that are memorable to the listener. Gun Street Ghost's music will tell you a story musically and lyrically, at times the message is clear, at times it's more like a dream that is open to interpretation.
