Jeremy Pinnell
Jeremy Pinnell
When Jeremy Pinnell released OH/KY in the summer of 2015 to stunned acclaim, it felt like an entire career compressed into one knock-out album. Hailed as a “ming-blowingly good” (Greg Vandy, KEXP) “tutorial on classic country music” (Popmatters), Pinnell’s debut immediately differentiated as authentic and unflinching. Dogged touring through Europe and the states and celebrated radio

sessions followed, cementing Pinnell’s position as a no-fuss master of his craft.



His 2017 album Ties of Blood and Affection presents a canny lateral move. Instead of doubling down on the stark themes and values of his debut, this sophomore album finds Pinnell finding comfort in his own skin and achieving the redemption only hinted at in his previous batch of haunted songs. Here Pinnell joyfully embraces the

working life, family obligations, and faith. His new stories delve into acceptance and survival, all the while investigating his most challenging chapter yet: adulthood. While “If life don’t get any better / I’m alright with this” isn’t an out-right triumph, it’s an honest revelation.



You can feel the room breathe and get a sense of these musicians eyeballing each other as their performances are committed directly to thick analog tape. Honest and careworn, Jeremy’s voice can touch on wry, jubilant, and debauched - all in a single line. Ties of Blood and Affection offers a fair dose resolution to Jeremy’s story. At his

best, Jeremy Pinnell chronicles the joy and sorrow of being human, which is the best that anyone could do.



"Hardscrabble honky-tonk at its best, nodding to Johnny Cash and Buck Owens in equal measure. Ties of Blood and Affection is a stellar collection that could earn Pinnell comparisons to Sturgill Simpson.” - ROLLING STONE



“One of my favorite new finds.” – Sean Moeller / DAYTROTTER



"Kentuckian Jeremy Pinnell hits all the country-tune sweet spots. His voice is strong and a little mournful -- you can feel his ache seep through the speakers as you listen -- and the rhythm section shuffles along gently. Weepy pedal steel licks feel just right as Pinnell sings a regretful refrain of ‘I did it again,’ a familiar sentiment for any of us who've ever done a little backsliding.” - THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION
Hang Rounders
Hang Rounders
New country done the good old way since 2015. The band members' pedigree reads like a who's who of Denver dive-bar hero musicians (featuring members of The Legendary River Drifters, Dudebabes, The Knew, Ned Garthe Explosion, CrushCraze, Bangtel), but what comes across in the music is four mountain men manifesting Johno Roberts' tales of his native Tennessee and his observations on a changing Colorado.

Hang Rounders' music is best heard on a dance floor, where it is allowed to do its work and get you movin', singin', and bringin' (your sister).

Their newest songs, "June Bug" b/w "Shaky Hands," will be released on 7 inch vinyl in late 2018. They were produced at Mighty Fine Productions in Denver, CO with engineer Colin Bricker, and feature guest musicians Mark Shusterman (Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats) on keys and the most excellent Jennifer Jane Niceley on backing vocals.

"Undeniably American roots music at its finest." -- Brett Callwood, Westword

"The band really impresses with a rockin' country sound with dashes of soul and Southern rock that might've come straight out of the 1970s." -- Kelly Gregory, Country Music People

"Outta Beer, Outta Here has both a stamp of grade-A quality and the rough-and-tumble that makes it sound good." -- Rachel Cholst, No Depression

3 time losers of "Colorado's Best Country Band" award from Denver's Westword.
