Bison Bone
Bison Bone
Bison Bone is a working class Americana Rock band from Denver, CO. They have shared the stage with the Son Volt, American Aquarium, Susto, Corb Lund, Israel Nash.

'Bison Bone masterfully blends alt-country with experimental guitar rock with thoughtful, evocative storytelling. One is struck by how Courtney Whitehead and the rest of the band make their take on country and rock very much their own thing. You hear nods to Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons and others who connected the rootsy warmth of country with an otherworldly energy except that Bison Bone is connected to another realm of the cosmos and the songs transform intense, potentially soul crushing pain into inspiration and catharsis.' - Queen City Sound and Art

"Bison Bone’s new single Crying Shame is exactly what Americana rock should sound like. It has plenty of soul and with the deep hearty vocals it feels like the singer truly knows the pain of what the song describes. Couple that with the strong guitar riff and you’ve got yourself a song to listen to at least three times a day. " - 303 Magazine

"When Whitehead writes about loss, love and resentment, there is a psychological and social awareness that informs the lyrics with an uncommon humanity and compassion that transcends genre. Because of that and the group's innovative sounds and song structures, it is impossible to pigeonhole Bison Bone as just another Americana band." - Westword
The Lonesome Heroes
The Lonesome Heroes
Austin's KUTX describes them as “the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths.”
Jen Korte
Jen Korte
Someone has said that if “ Nick Drake and Janis Joplin had a love child, Jen Korte would be it.” Known for her strong lyrics and powerful delivery, her voice has been the master instrument in defining what her music is as well as her dynamically layered guitar playing. Teaming up with “golden throated” Jessica DeNicola, the two have created a pair of songbirds that leave their audience swirling in their harmonies and wanting more.
“Jen Korte is not a thousand feet tall, but her voice makes you believe that she is. From the moment the air leaves her lungs … her powerful, alluring voice places you out of your mind and into a raw, unveiling of the truth behind her lyrics.” Dave Preston, Colorado Music Buzz
Their debut album release Jen Korte and The Loss
( September 2009) was rated one of the top albums of 2009 by the Denver Westword and has been met with overwhelming praise across the board. Korte’s weathered, world-weary voice (reminiscent of Rachael Yamagata and Lucinda Williams), harmonies from Jessica DeNicola, and the band’s evocative use of instrumentation create a late-night, listen-by-yourself album that does not neatly fit into any genre. As Korte describes it, “a little bit of make-out music, a little bit of crying music, and a little bit of rock.”
“Throughout her debut, particularly on cuts like “Fleeting Love,” Jen Korte’s voice drips with seduction, longing, saddness and regret. With admirable depth, she also displays unyielding resolve in the face of her inherent vulnerabilities. A talented cast of players, add welcomed texture to Korte’s otherwise sparse compositions, making her first outting one to remember.” – Denver Westwords Best albums of 2009
“… it’s a work of sheer beauty that utterly consumed us the first time we heard it.” Dave Herrera, Denver Westword
“An unbelievable record. It’s brilliant.” Jake Schroeder, KQMT Radio, The Mountain Homegrown.
Recent media coverage for Korte has included a cover story in OutFront Colorado(September 2009) and a 1500-word feature in the Denver Westword(September 2009).
