You Me and Apollo
You Me and Apollo
Fort Collins/Denver based band You Me & Apollo “injects the fury of rock’n’roll and the heartfelt spirit of blues into a folk/Americana sound that really comes alive [during their] performances”

-Peter Washington of Concerted Effort Blog.

The music of You Me & Apollo ranges from quiet folk to groove infused rock and has been described as an unholy union of Hank Williams and Otis Redding. The birth of You Me & Apollo, in 2007, consisted of singer-songwriter Brent Cowles. Now, In 2011, Cowles joined with some very talented friends and the result has been a unique and explosive sound something that makes you put your beer down, swivel your bar stool toward the stage, and watch with anticipation.
The Whicker and Pine
The Whicker and Pine
We were all raised singing hymns and listening to oldies... Dylan, Holly, Withers and The Beatles. The Motown sound stood out to us and 3 minute pop/rock songs filled our ears with sweet choruses and catchy hooks. These days, those same ears are filled with The Decemberists, The Head and the Heart, The Oh Hello's, Pedro the Lion, Bon Iver, Wilco and Ryan Adams.

When asked “why we play music” One common answer comes to mind... We play because we love to, because there is a chance to connect over the most common and easily expressible language: Music, and we are grateful for those of you who love it as much as us. We are simple people who live simple lives, and if we end up playing in only our garage, to just our families and friends? We will still play these songs. Though, we would prefer it if you would join us.

Jon moved to Denver from Seattle in 2010, luckily he brought his love for Folk/Americana with him. Jon has shared the stage and drew inspiration from friends The Head and The Heart, The Fleet Foxes and Hey Marseilles. Phillip Miller used to make Jon's coffee in Seattle. When Phil moved to Denver it seemed like a natural choice to have him start playing bass. Anna Brawner sings, is from Kansas City, and 9/10 times will be wearing high heels on the stage. Anna spent some time in Nashville making friends with awesome people which helped her fall in love with music. JD Raab plays guitar, he used to play drums and still does in a number of other projects around Denver. David Barnes plays drums for us now, he is in the middle of a serious love affair with Glen Fiddich. Rounding out our sound is Zach Capshaw who is also a Colorado native, he plays the Rhodes and other things with ivory keys.

Josh Dillard is just a man. Was born from dust and into dust he shall return. He's the whisper from Denver rolling out across them lonesome plains; he's the shatter of lightning filling the outstretched arms of the Rockies; he's the heartbeat of the city in summer's swoon.
