Folk rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Kyle Emerson broke out with his debut EP, 'Worth It', in May of 2017. With that first release, Emerson has quickly become one of Denver's most promising talents. Mixing swift finger-picking, breathy vocals, and tell-all-lyrics, Emerson tight ropes a blend of the harmonious folk rock of the 60's with a twist of modern sonics.

On his debut full-length, 'Dorothy Alice' (via Guilty Pleasure Records), Emerson showcases a poise and maturity for the craft of songwriting far beyond his years.

Having opened for artists over the years such as Charles Bradley, The Districts, Jeff the Brotherhood, La Luz, Twin Peaks, Israel Nash, Anderson East, Wild Child and more, Emerson continues to solidify his presence as an artist on the rise.


"... a scoop of Ryley Walker, a sprinkle of Elliott Smith - that’s different and gripping enough to peg Emerson as Denver’s next artist to watch." - Denver Post

"The album is a blend of rich psychedelic folk that couples the trippy, dripping harmonies of early Beach Boys (See: “Dorothy Alice”) with the pop sensibilities of The Beatles’ more far-out tracks (See “Post Egomania”)...he is able to tackle some far-reaching soundscapes and open a bevy of psychedelic doors, while also keeping the album light, approachable and captivating" - Marquee Magazine
Stelth Ulvang
Stelth Ulvang
Stelth Ulvang breathes life into ordinary things ­ a tattered, grey bowler hat made light as feather and nimble as a hummingbird when it's an extension of Stelth's palm and a piece of knotted wood sings as a new slingshot once Stelth's pocket knife has touched the bark.

Stelth is a creator; self­taught and continually curious to learn more, he's a talented multi­instrumentalist, spirited poet and composer of vulnerable, honest, and rich music. Able to balance heavy truths with the lightness of humor and observation, his songs share the wayfaring nature of his heart. His unique ability to transform living rooms, basements, backyards, kitchens, and even large venues into an intimate moment of storytelling, makes his carnival­style performance and confessional lyrics appealing to the human experience. Full­time globe traveler, currently touring with The Lumineers, Stelth first kicked off his musical travels co­founding the band known as The Dovekins.


"Stelth Ulvang who is a solo artist in his own right. For a very short-notice stint filling in, Ulvang managed to literally win over the entire room after playing for about half an hour.- His songs are intricately detailed lyrics and have a delicate feel to them but his delivery is empowered and assured. Even his awkward attempt at bantering about meat pies and being in Australia and how surreal it was just endeared him to the crowd even more. I suspect we will be hearing more from this young gent soon."
The AU Review, Sydney, Australia

"Ulvang is often found painting melodic memories through piano keys."
The California Aggie, Davis

"Ulvang bounded around the stage with all the energy and soul of a man possessed. A highly entertaining way to open a gig, no doubt extra special for the punter hoisted on stage to play piano"

"Ulvang’s solo material is very piano-centric, with his considerable skill on several other instruments creating a lush, multilayered sound. With his fascinating voice, he can both croon and raggedly shout…"
City Weekly, Salt Lake City

"Ulvang leaps barefoot around the stage like a manic musical imp, shaking maracas, booting his piano stool off the podium and tinkling the ivories with his toes."
