Pickwick was formed in 2008 when singer Galen Disston left Los Angeles and relocated to Seattle, Washington. Originally an alt-country group, Pickwick spent the following two years trying to establish themselves in the Seattle Folk scene. Amidst a barrage of similarly-minded artists, the band struggled to connect with audiences and was on the verge of disintegration.
Around that time Disston heard Sam Cooke's classic, "A Change is Gonna Come." Floored by the poignance of Cooke's voice, the band began experimenting with music that would allow Disston the same kind of vocal freedom. It was not long before the band had completely revamped their sound.
Raised on the rhythm sections of indie rock staples such as Spoon & The Walkmen, this new undertaking led the members of the band to dive deep into the catalogs of the Stax and Motown labels. By combining these two seemly different points of reference, Pickwick was able to cultivate a sound that was more organic and unique to the six members that compose the band.
As a nod to music from the past as well as their own love of vinyl recordings, Pickwick has begun to release their music through a series of 45's that are also available via digital download.
The band is currently working on writing material for their debut full-length album, expected to be released in 2012.
Colorado Native Dan Craig is steadily becoming a staple for Denver's local music lovers. His sound, landing somewhere between Josh Ritter and Damien Rice, seems to capture emotion with brilliance and has the ability to whisk you away with every song.
Like good wine, each release from Craig shows striking maturity with carefully crafted words. Dan's live shows range from the classic solo guitar set up to a varying ensemble featuring cello and mandolin, making his unique sound even more captivating. Simply put, Dan Craig's music feels like home.
After a stint away from Colorado to attend the University of Pennsylvania, Dan returned to his hometown to settle in and share his music. Dan Craig's music has recently been featured on the hit show "One Tree Hill" and has shared the stage with many artists including Gregory Alan Isakov, Mike Doughty (Soul Coughing), Ari Hest and Katie Herzig in the past year.
From New York to LA, this touring independent artist gained a steady and loyal following all over the country and abroad. With singles like 'Alchemy', 'Solid Ground' and 'Enough', Dan Craig's new record due out August 2010 is a shoe in for playlists this fall. Among other things, Dan is on the verge of releasing his fourth full-length record, Alchemy, with a fifth and solo record due out Christmas 2010.
