Straight out of the Colorado Rockies, this award-winning band plays with confidence, grace and a real depth of character.  They draw influences from all of the greats – from Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs to their contemporaries.

Each member contributes song-writing, powerful vocals, great harmonies and breath-taking instrumentals to give this band its amazing range.   Their debut album showcased influences from roots/Americana, country, 50s doo-wop, modern pop and rock ‘n roll.
