Lola Rising is a Colorado-based Indie Folk Island Rock Band comprising of Denver natives Paul Medina Guevara (lead vocals, guitar, ukulele), Woody Roberts (bass guitar, keys, vocals), Kevin Eady (electric guitar, vocals, ukulele), Matt Fink (drums, vocals, percussion), Sarah Joelle Hoffenberg (vocals, keys and percussion), and Joe Z (trumpet).

Inspired from a song Paul once wrote about the passing of his `Lola` (means Grandmother in Filipino), coupled with `Rising` evokes images of spirituality and embraces the human condition. Their dance-able rhythms, honest poetry, and smooth melodic multi-part harmonies makes their music familiar, fun, accessible, vivid, and thought-provoking.

In late 2013, Paul returned from an eight year stint in Japan and joined forces with life-long friends Kevin, Woody (formerly played in the Denver-based reggae/rock band Optimal Frequency), Matt (formerly of the Flash Mob), Sarah (trained Jazz vocalist), and Joe Z (also of Zagriculture).

From the depths of musty parking garages & gangsters in the Tokyo underworld; to fly-fishing the Animas River & crossing the Great Divide, everything inspires us; Lola is on the Rise.

With their EP "Bones N' All", Native Station's eclectic blend of alternative-rock, pop, and reggae undertones will have you dancing and singing along to catchy choruses with a driving accompaniment.

Originating in Marion, Virginia, Greg Benton (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar) and Thomas Troutt (Lead Guitar) uprooted themselves for the diverse Colorado Music scene. After meeting with Brett Cunningham (Bass), Nick Solga (Drums), and Brandon Clark (Keyboards), Native Station was formed. With their first EP "Bones N' All" released to favorable critique on Bolder Beat, the band then garnered radio play on iHeart Radio's 94.9 Locals' Lounge with their debut single "All My Friends."

In June of 2017, the band released a 17-track Mixtape, "shifty.SHIFTY {The Harvest Sessions}." Vibrant, electrifying, soulful, and comprised mostly of material played live in 2016, the mixtape embellishes on full orchestrations of the live band arrangements. After playing notable North Colorado venues such as The Aggie Theatre, Dickens Opera House, and Larimer Lounge, Native Station continues to write new material and are planning a tour in the Fall of 2018 to promote the release of their upcoming double-single Lightframe/TallTales.

Zee Irelynn, electric violinist and singer-songwriter, grew up in and around the heart of Music City. Her musical style has been heavily influenced by Nashville's rich music scene and now she is bringing that influence across the country as she plants her roots in Fort Collins, CO. Bringing her electric violin into the forefront of mainstream music, she mixes elements of soulful blues and classic rock with traces of modern indie. Zee's instrument of choice, a seven-string, fretted, electric Wood Violin, called a Viper, allows her to access many sounds and effects that are not possible with a traditional acoustic violin.

Growing up, Zee was submersed in the world of classical violin through the Suzuki Method, but quickly began to explore other styles including classic rock, fiddle, Celtic fiddle and the blues. It wasn't long after she acquired her electric violin that Zee began taking vocal lessons and began to develop her own, unique sound. Violinists such as Alison Krauss, Mark Wood, Andrew Bird and Tracy Silverman have influenced Zee’s musical style. Most of Zee's vocal influence comes from Robert Plant's music, both in Led Zeppelin and as a solo act. She also draws inspiration from female singers Brandi Carlile, Norah Jones and Grace Potter.



Zee has studied with instrumentalists and vocalists including Mark Wood, Tracy Silverman, David Wallace, Dana Leong, Laura Kaye, Eric Gorfain, and Joe Deninzon. Instrumentalists and vocalists that Zee has studied with privately include David Johnson, Cheri Drummond, Hari Bernstein, Judith Ablon (instrumental), Laura Kaye, and Janna Jandry (vocal). Zee studied Classical and Commercial Violin and Viola at Trevecca Nazarene
