The Happy Fits
National fencing champion Ross Monteith and orchestra nerd Calvin Langman didn't exactly get along in high school. However, a chance conversation in 2014 about the success of Youtube cover bands brought the two together to pave a road to quick fortune. Their mix of rocking guitars and electric cello created a unique dynamic, blending their love of rock artists like The Black Keys and folk bands like The Violent Femmes. The resulting music produced a youthful and chaotic frenzy of catchy melodies and raw instrumentals. When the band recruited professional gamer Luke Davis to join the band on drums, The Happy Fits were born. The band's first single "While You Fade Away" from their debut EP "Awfully Apeelin'" reached #5 on Spotify's Top 50 Viral USA Chart the first week of its release.
Indie pop rock band from Provo, Utah.
Folk rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Kyle Emerson broke out with his debut EP, 'Worth It', in May of 2017. With that first release, Emerson has quickly become one of Denver's most promising talents. Mixing swift finger-picking, breathy vocals, and tell-all-lyrics, Emerson tight ropes a blend of the harmonious folk rock of the 60's with a twist of modern sonics.
On his debut full-length, 'Dorothy Alice' (via Guilty Pleasure Records), Emerson showcases a poise and maturity for the craft of songwriting far beyond his years.
Having opened for artists over the years such as Charles Bradley, The Districts, Jeff the Brotherhood, La Luz, Twin Peaks, Israel Nash, Anderson East, Wild Child and more, Emerson continues to solidify his presence as an artist on the rise.
"... a scoop of Ryley Walker, a sprinkle of Elliott Smith - that’s different and gripping enough to peg Emerson as Denver’s next artist to watch." - Denver Post
"The album is a blend of rich psychedelic folk that couples the trippy, dripping harmonies of early Beach Boys (See: “Dorothy Alice”) with the pop sensibilities of The Beatles’ more far-out tracks (See “Post Egomania”)...he is able to tackle some far-reaching soundscapes and open a bevy of psychedelic doors, while also keeping the album light, approachable and captivating" - Marquee Magazine
