Matt Rouch and The Noise Upstairs
Matt's style is a blend of new and old, listing contemporary acts such as The Decemberists, The Tallest Man on Earth, Iron and Wine, and The Milk Carton Kids as major influences, he still draws upon well of the golden age of country for inspiration from artists like Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, and Conway Twitty. Matt's music is dynamic, he can enthrall a crowd with passionate soaring vocals with a loud twangy country number, then mellow things out with a quiet intimate folk song. Storytelling has always been a passion of Matt's and it has permeated through his music, songs of lost loves and new loves are as old as time, however the honesty and intimacy with which Matt approaches his songwriting is what gives his music its charm,
Goodnight Freeman was started by brothers Chad Hadersbeck and Joe Schliewe. After years of pursuing music independently, they finally got the opportunity to play together when Joe moved to the same town as Chad in 2010. They got started playing open mics in the Deep Ellum area of Dallas, TX. The Free Man Cajun Cafe was the place that kickstarted their new musical journey. Every Tuesday night, they got together with the talented musicians of Deep Ellum and shared drinks, laughs and music. It was always a good night at the Free Man. Hence the name, Goodnight Freeman. Open mics turned into bigger shows, like the House of Blues, but eventually the mountains became irresistible.
Once in Denver, they found a home playing open mic at the Meadowlark on a regular basis. But they wanted to branch out and create a fuller sound. After playing more shows under their duet moniker, Dinosaur Vacation, the hunger to get a full band together took over and they began searching for drums and bass. 2015 was filled with many different lineups but one has finally stuck. Stay tuned...
Phee began her pursuit of professional performing at the age of 18 when she moved to Hollywood, CA from her hometown of Denver, CO.
Initially, she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts but after six months, she decided to make the move to exclusively pursue her true passion of singing studying at The Musicians Institute. During this time, she worked as one of three interns at World Audience Management - best known for managing metal band Avenged Sevenfold. After a year and a half with World Audience, [Phee] made the leap from World Audience to an internship with Warner Brothers Records.
While in Los Angeles, she learned many lessons, both good and bad, before returning to Denver to continue her music career. Since her return home, she has been in local rock band Reunion Drive and the more well known post-punk band, Smallz the Cat.
Harnessing her geek powers, she spearheaded and hosts science fiction and fantasy talk radio show called Master Control. The show can be heard weekly every Thursday at 7:30pm (MST) through spreaker.com.
Shortly before beginning her radio show, she was given the name Phee in a dream and made the decision to brand herself as such.
Phee has since broken off as the sole visionary of her pop solo act while her band, Smallz the Cat, takes an indefinite hiatus; however, her punk influence can still be seen throughout her music and personal style.
Phee is very much true to herself - a hardworking, motivated, fun, creative and talented punk oriented geek. She does not hold anything back and is fully prepared to do whatever it takes to find success in her passion of music.
Phee has had much success in the time that she has been working on her pop music. Recording with Jesse O’Brien at Colorado Sound, Phee released her first single, “Sex and Love” with a music video to follow produced by James Culter at Moodog Productions. The single received rave reviews from fans and has been put into rotation on several college radio stations as well as KGSS “The Geek” and Pandora Internet Radio.
Phee has released her latest single “Mexico” and her upcoming single “Go” with “Reverend Bob” Matros of Hooker Street Studios, is set to release when Boston thaws in 2015. Additionally, she will begin production of her first EP/Album featuring Phee’s life and creativity.
Gonzo is a new cover band project in Denver started by Steven Gonzales and Tatiana Parks, with Eric Jansen and Alex Thurby making up the rhythm section.
