Paper Bird
Paper Bird
Since the band’s formation over 5 years ago, Paper Bird has been playing its joyful blend of folk, roots, and Americana to delighted audiences across the country. Their unique sound is a combination of a dynamic and energetic rhythm section intertwined with effortless and flowing harmonies. The group’s backbone is their songwriting, musicianship and general allergy to all limitations and trends. With seven members and no leader, the possibilities are ever unfolding, with fluctuations in style and mood akin to weather patterns. A household name across their native Colorado, Paper Bird continues to tour and develop its voice and presence across the country. With three full length albums and several national tours under their belt, Paper Bird has steadily grown in both their success and sound while continuing to expand and explore what the band can do musically.

The seven members of the band include: Mark Anderson (drums), Sarah Anderson (voice, trumpet), Paul DeHaven (guitar), Esme Patterson (voice), Genevieve Patterson (voice), Caleb Summeril (banjo, guitar), and Macon Terry (bass). Each individual writes songs for the group and this keeps new material rolling off the shelf at a healthy pace. Paper Bird’s live performances showcase the diversity and good-time vibe of the group while providing a fresh and unique take on a sound that has a tendency to bring the listener back to a different era. Young in age but timeless in spirit, Paper Bird continually captures the hearts of new listeners and long-time fans. Their rare and beautiful approach to music led them to be featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and were voted in the Top 10 Best Underground Bands by the Denver Post three years in a row, as well as being 5280’s Top of the Town 2009 “Top Local Band”.

Mike Clark & The Sugar Sounds
For many of you on the front range this is not the first time you've heard of Mr. Mike Clark. You've probably witnessed his fierce and often epic performances with The Jack Trades, heard the countrified stomping' sing-alongs of Crow Flies and was serenaded by his multi-instrumental mastery as a member of The Haunted Windchimes. Like his first band implies he truly is a jack of all trades, and shows a slightly different side of his genius with each new project.
