"As the leader of the up-and-coming Widowers, local songsmith Mike Marchant has already demonstrated a lackadaisical mastery of dreamy, druggy indie-folk, but he’s been slowly and quietly growing into an artist in his own right. His recent spate of solo shows has culminated in a new Marchant EP, Outer Space And The Sea. It’s an apt title: Veering from bare, echo-rattled acoustic songs to bubbly psychedelic pop, Marchant uses everything from lap steel to distorted drum machines to augment his wispy yet soulful voice and songwriting."- The Onion Denver Decider

"...one of the area's most enchanting songwriters." - Westword

"Marchant’s music is by no means a rip off of John, Ringo, Paul, or George. Simply, it’s an updated 60s-esque style that weaves a musical web that’s hard to escape." - UCD Advocate

Esme Patterson
Esmé Patterson's songwriting is at the heart of the folk and roll explosion in Denver, CO. Her first album "All Princes, I" was released in november of 2011 to great acclaim and her sophomore album "Woman to Woman", a concept album of responses to famous songs about women (more in-depth explanation here:http://youtu.be/luiz913mWM8), will be released on April 15th. She is a founding member of the Americana group Paper Bird and has toured extensively and recorded 4 studio albums with them over the last 7 years.
Pale Sun
Pale Sun
Pale Sun was formed by the steady gravitational force between Jeff Suthers and Kit Peltzel. With Jeff in Volplane and Kit in Space Team Electra, the two existed as close families, playing gigs and spending many epic and inspired years together. Time passed, those bands broke up and each continued on with other projects of varying success. Jeff with Bright Channel, Orbiteer and Pteranodon and Kit with Snake Rattle Rattle Snake, Mr. Pacman and The Denver Gentlemen. It wasn't until Jeff formed Moonspeed that the two actually played together. This short lived space rock orchestra succumbed to the pressure of organizing the eleven busy musicians. When Kit left SRRS, the two decided to join forces and Pale Sun was born. They quickly sought out the incredible talents of Brian Marcus of Tjutjuna on guitar and Eddie Corcoran to hold down the bass notes. After all those years of playing with serious intentions, Pale Sun has taken the approach of writing and performing music for the pure love of it, always bringing the heart of the music to the front while letting the rest fall into place. As might be expected, the sounds shimmer in the light of Shoegaze with hints of surf in the guitar tones while the bass and drums drive the cadence to the celestial shore.
