Porlolo
Porlolo
Porlolo is a true labor of love, with good friends finding peace and party times through musical connection. Formed in Denver in 2002 by the eccentric and prolific Erin Roberts, Porlolo has been a highly collaborative project. Roberts—a self-defined sister, swimmer and stunt artist—is a powerful songwriting force, cranking out grungy, sometimes twangy, often pure pop hits. Over her last 15 years of deliberate wandering through Denver, Gunnison, Eugene and most recently Fort Collins, Roberts draws inspiration from the dramatic landscapes and even more dramatic personalities.
Porlolo releases Awards on April 27, produced and engineered by James Barone (Beach House). Players include Anna Morsett (The Still Tide, Brent Cowles), Jake Miller (Esmé Patterson, The Still Tide, Brent Cowles), Tom Mohr, James Barone (Beach House), and Pat Meese (Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats).
Awards showcases Roberts’ thoughtful and playful songwriting, fully supported by the talent of her influential friends and bandmates. Says Roberts of her current lineup, “Porlolo has been an incredibly powerful force in my own life, providing equal amounts of sanity and absurdity, keeping it weird when life gets tedious, heavy and too adult.”
Porlolo discography includes What Would This Be For (2002), Storm and Season (2004), Meadows (2006), Pony Trekk (split EP with Kate Magnus, 2009). In December of 2014, Porlolo released Everything, Barely, a three-song EP produced and recorded by James Barone (Beach House). Erin Roberts also released Fill Your Lungs (2012) with the Denver-based band Ending People.
Porlolo has extensively toured the US, playing alongside Jessica Lea Mayfield, Cass McCombs, Destroyer, Magnolia Electric Company, Fleet Foxes, Phosphorescent, Two Gallants and more.

Jeff Beam

Musically, Beam seeks to fuse together unorthodox pop melody with interesting sound textures & colorful instrumentation.
