Bear and the Beasts
Bear and the Beasts
Bear and the Beasts are a rowdy 6-piece soul-tinged Americana band from Denver that blends elements of folk, jazz, and roots into a cosmic sound that can explode like a quasar or float like a Tesla Roadster through space. With a white-knuckled, bone-rattling intensity and a compositional command that is downright orchestral, they tackle themes such as social justice, death, and millennial malaise with a paradoxical sense of gravitas and irreverence. Backed with devastatingly powerful songwriting, delicately crafted vocal harmonies, and lush, innovative horn arrangements, Bear and the Beasts have created a powerful tour de force that can turn the diviest bar into a tent revival.

They are currently recording their debut full-length, "The American", set to be released in 2018.
Briffaut
Briffaut
Ars Longa Vita Brevis : The life is short but the art is long.
Briffaut is Daniel James Eaton with the help of a revolving cast of talented and notable musicians that he has been honored to work with. Together they create sonic visions that hover in the spaces between classic templates such as Folk, Jazz, Blues and early Rock nā€™ Roll up to the more surreal genres of Progressive Rock, Kraut Rock and dreamy Psychedelia. We are explorers. If you approach us with an open mind and an open ear, you will be able to pronounce the band name in no time : )
