LOSpressphotoLeftover Salmon

Leftover Salmon is back! NPR’s Mountain Stage heralded Colorado’s Leftover Salmon as “one of the most beloved acts on America’s summer-festival circuit” as they’ve returned from an eight year hiatus touring with their new album Aquatic Hitchhiker [released May 22 on LoS Records]. Exploring new new sonic territory, AOL’s The Boot listed Aquatic Hitchhiker as one of the best Americana albums of this year. Stay tuned for new songs from LoS this summer delivered from Breckenridge Beer!

2012 was a great year for Leftover Salmon hosted an epic block party in downtown Denver, released a behind-the-scenes documentary “Salmonlandia,” toured relentlessly, and scored a spot as Discovery Channel’s first-ever house band on “After the Catch,” the post-show special for the Emmy-winning series “The Deadliest Catch.”

They emerged on the scene in Boulder, CO in 1989 as one of the first bluegrass bands to add drums and tour rock & roll bars, helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jam grass genre.  “This is one fish that has only gotten better with age. Fiery solos and elements of country, bluegrass, jazz and jam rock combine into a heady mix of feel-good tunes — and some that carry a hefty message, as well,” said CMT in 2012.

Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Today, Leftover Salmon is: Vince Herman (vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin); Drew Emmitt (vocals, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar, mandola, fiddle); Andy Thorn (vocals, acoustic and electric banjo, National guitar); Greg Garrison (vocals, acoustic and electric bass, acoustic guitar); Jose Martinez (drums, percussion).

Elephant Revival

Elephant Revival is a soulful, seductive quiver of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists that reign from points all across America. Since 2006 Daniel Rodriguez, Bonnie Paine, Dango Rose, Sage Cook and Bridget Law have herded in a greatly applauded neo-acoustic and gyptic revival at festivals, theaters, clubs and house concerts from the Pacific coast to the rolling hills of New England. Elephant Revival plays entirely original music with a few carefully chosen traditional and eclectic cover tunes but their precise genre is hard to pin down.

As independent film director Mikey Eberle elaborates, “When I hear Elephant Revival I am struck by my inability to define it. I am forced to confront the music as it is, connecting to it with a virgin spirit of mind. Consequently it feels like I am experiencing music and all its joys for the very first time.”

dangermuffin_1884Dangermuffin Acoustic

On Dangermuffin’s 2010 release Moonscapes, the Folly Beach, S.C. based trio sang about home. Even they couldn’t have expected the extent of that paradox the album grew the band into a traveling national act, with songs on both SiriusXM’s Jam On, Outlaw Country stations, and slots at major festivals across the country. With the release of their latest album in 2012, Olly Oxen Free, Dangermuffin have returned home. No longer easily dubbed an Americana or roots-rock band, the group’s sound encompasses ska, calypso, and even Southern rock, often within the same song. Like the cry bellowed during a children’s game of hide-and-seek, Olly Oxen Free signals that it’s safe to come out from our hiding spots, gather back together, and celebrate late into the evening.

“Don’t let the name fool you- Dangermuffin is not another run-of-the-mill, directionless jamband. Rather, it’s a trio with immense talent and potential that has gifted songwriting and playing abilities in spades. Just like many a funny named band before them- Phish, The String Cheese Incident and Umphrey’s McGee come to mind- Dangermuffin is likely to become synonymous with those fans who love bands that deliver something new and promising each show.” says Josh Baron, editor in chief of Relix Magazine.

2013TwnMtn_byJoeShymanski2Town Mountain

Local Asheville bluegrass brand Town Mountain released their fourth album, Leave the Bottle, in 2012.  Always contributing to the evolution of the bluegrass form, they toss influence as varied as surf-rock, gospel, and honky-tonk country into their field of play. Banding together in 2005, Town Mountain is Phil Barker on mandolin and vocals, Robert Greer on lead vocals and guitar guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo and vocals, Bobby Britt on fiddle, and newest member Jake Hopping rounds them out with his rock-solid bass. One listen to their instantly memorable songs, and it’s plain to see why Grammy-winner Mike Bub would align with the group to produce Leave the Bottle as well as 2011’s Steady Operator.

“Centered around strong, soulful vocals, and poised to stay put,” says Wood Platt of the Steep Canyon Rangers, “Town Mountain are true to bluegrass in all the right ways and this new project keeps them firmly connected to the traditions of the genre, while also allowing them to reach out into the broad horizon of string band music.  Leave the Bottle comes highly recommended.”

“Find of the festival? I have to say we loved Lizzy Ross and her band, and not just because they hail from Chapel Hill North Carolina. She totally rocked. Run don’t walk to iTunes and get some for yourself…The Lizzy Ross Band, ” writes the Fly Fish Chick in her blog about the fest. Read the full post here: http://flyfishchick.com/2012/03/27/best-of-the-fest/

Festgrrl writes, “Elephant Revival: Wow. Young band, fresh, arresting sound, soulful picking, intriguing arrangements, and the startling lead singer-washboard/djembe/musical saw player Bonnie Paine’s haunting voice — I hate to compare such a gorgeous instrument to anyone else, but it sounded to me like a cross between Natalie Merchant  and Nora Jones. Actually, she sounds exactly like herself.” Read her full post about the festival HERE. Stay tuned for videos of the band’s originals…in the meantime check out this fun one with Vince Herman (Great American Taxi) sitting in with them:
