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.

Natalie Tate
Natalie Tate
Homegrown in the deserts and mountains, the plains and cityscapes of Colorado, Natalie Tate's songwriting is rooted firmly in Americana music traditions while also wandering into more ethereal places of longing and vulnerability. Inspired by the raw expressiveness of Jeff Buckley and Cat Power, Natalie's voice draws listeners inward, both into her music and into the forgotten spaces inside of ourselves. Listening to Natalie is like resting on one tiny island of control, surrounded by a bottomless blue sea of uncertainty. Her subtly and power, whether emanating from her voice or the electric guitar, is gracefully supported by Jeremy Averitt on bass and slide guitar, and Robin Chestnut on drums.
Reverend Deadeye
Reverend Deadeye
In the wake of Tom Waits and the slough of bands evoking an old-time spirit, there's Denver's Reverend Deadeye, mixing up his own brew of ministry inspired, soul-saving music. One of the things that impresses me most about Reverend Deadeye is that, for all intents and purposes, he's the real deal. As a missionary kid, he spent most of his youth mingling with Navajos at tent revivals. His performance is less of an "act" than it is a natural manifestation of his real-life experiences. Where others are often just recapturing worlds that they learned about in books or their old Nick Cave albums, The Reverend is telling a real story that he (more or less) lived himself. Now that's something. -apogee magazine
the Changing Colors
the Changing Colors
The tiny hamlet of Manitou Springs, Colorado sits just below the soaring heights of Pikes Peak. A place frequented by thousands of tourists each year, it is a mecca for flatlanders and southerners longing for the cool mountain air and the remarkable views. It is also a haven for gifted songwriters and musicians. Among the most capable of these writers is Conor Bourgal, who along with his twin brother, Ian, and an interchangeable ensemble of musicians, form a group called the Changing Colors.They are a band that sings of longing and beauty, hope and regret. Their latest album, Ghost of Red Mountain takes its entire theme from the legendary story of Manitou resident Emma Crawford. Sometime in the early 1900's Crawford's coffin was washed down onto Main Street from it's perch above town on Red Mountain. The story is the source of Manitou's biggest festival – the internationally renowned Emma Crawford Coffin Races held each Halloween. Bourgal chose to look beyond the gothic story and to bring a hardscrabble pioneer woman's life to light.The result is a set of songs so poignant and moving that after a single play, they stay with the listener for days, creating a sustained whisper of love and yearning. Using the simplicity of acoustic guitar and the melancholy tone of a lap steel, Bourgal sings of promises of remembrance and anticipated romance.Bourgal's narrative style creates stories of the human experience that are sparse, haunting and unforgettable.The Color's style remains accessible in its similarity to folk and Americana, but it's substance is far more complex. Bourgal's songs paint a landscape of the human journey through fear and despair into ultimate freedom and spiritual release. Each song on the album forms a particular scene in the narrative, moving toward ultimate transcendence. A recurring theme is separation – usually of lovers – and the passage through the anxiety and anguish of withdrawal.
