Hymn For Her
Although Hymn for Her hails from Philadelphia, Lucy characterizes H4H as “a band born on Route 66.” With their daughter Diver, Manny the nanny and Pokey, their spirit guardian dog, this little self-contained unit enjoys life’s unknown adventures on the highway. They recently had a successful U.K/European tour and plan to return soon.
H4H live, tour and record in their 16 foot, 1961 Bambi Airstream (comes with dog and baby). Their last release, ‘Lucy & Wayne and THE AMAIRICAN STREAM’ was entirely recorded in their classic trailer on a coast to coast U.S tour. They stopped at various campgrounds and friends driveways between shows, set up their gear in their Bambi/home recording studio, rolled tape and rocked out. The duo certainly covers a lot of musical territory in their new release "Lucy & Wayne’s Smokin Flames". Their wild-eyed mash-up of country, blues and punk led U.K. music critic Steve Bennett to call H4H’s sound “a riotous, rocking roadkill stew,” while others have referenced such diverse bands as Captain Beefheart, Primus, X, R.L. Burnside, JS Blues Explosion and the Ramones.
Impressively, the two create their “ripsaw sounds” (Los Angeles Times’ Randy Lewis) with only a few instruments. Wayne (with the devilish voice), mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force. Lucy (of the fallen-angel voice) delivers a gritty squall on her “Lowebow” — a custom-made cigar-box guitar that she describes as “The Riff Monster.”
Broke Bridge is a Denver bluegrass band anchored in old favorites and arcing toward the future. The group has been collecting fans on the Colorado Front Range since it formed in early 2011 and has performed at local clubs, upscale cocktail parties, hippie bars and on the street. (One of its first gigs was on the 16th Street Mall, where the $80 in tips it made in one hour it spent on drinks in 15 minutes.) The band includes Grant Van Pelt on mandolin, Heather Tousignant on fiddle, Quentin Young on guitar, Ryan Herbst on banjo, and Stacy Liles on bass. These experienced performers create sweet vocal harmonies over tight musical backdrops..
Trout Steak Revival
Catch Trout Steak Revival live and you can’t help but notice the band’s gift to thrive in the moment. In 2008 the band formed, sparked by jam sessions with close friends during backpacking trips and backyard parties. The sounds of fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, bass, dobro, and accordion blend in TSR’s bluegrass-inspired mountain music. While each member of the band composes original tunes, harmonic contributions are added by the entire band, following the bluegrass tradition and creating a unique sound. Scores of Colorado venues have hosted TSR since first honing their sound at the legendary Bucksnort Saloon. The five members hail from Colorado and the Midwest. TSR’s lyrics visit themes of love, loss, settling into a new home, and other meditations, wrapped in thoughtful harmonies and conversation between their strings. The music comes from the heart and goes to the heart, whether you’re listening to a live performance or on your car stereo, as the golden light of the last hours of the day paint the scenery outside your windshield.
