The Patti Fiasco
The Patti Fiasco is the wild-eyed love child of Loretta Lynn and the Sundance Kid… or are they more like Alice Cooper after a good piece of cake? Though their swagger is decidedly Western, their music is not so simply nailed down. Alysia Kraft marries the lyric sensibility of a seasoned folk singer with the intensity and showmanship of hair metal at its meanest. Tyler drives sweet-hearted melodies like runaway trucks. If your songs were your children, you'd want them growing up with drummer, Scott Clabby-- each one handled with diligence, sensitivity, and fun, feisty wit. Bassist Niles Mishke, the envy of any band demanding both versatility and flair, never leaves the funk at home. Frequent appearances by lap steel virtuoso Ansel Foxley (Lonesome Traveler, Glovetrucker), and showcase banjo from long-time friend Dennis 'Abe' Abramson round off the listening delight. Regardless of classification, The Patti Fiasco is damn fine band boasting a unique sound and live performances that expertly balance intimacy and explosion. Get 'em while they're hot, or wait a second until they're burning down the house. *The Patti Fiasco formed in November of 2008 when four strangers, born to wolves and raised by outlaws, congregated over amber shots of whiskey in Laramie, Wyoming's infamous, Buckhorn Bar. The five drew dollars like pistols from their pockets (Alysia, from a holstered skirt), and drowned their libations in strange synchronization. Coincidence has denied responsibility for the band's formation, and instead points a crooked finger at Fate. Since, they've been composing original tunes as restless, wild, and sweet-hearted as their respective histories, all the while touring across the Wild West. Backed by demand from their steadfast local following, The Patti Fiasco's five song demo, "No Bridges," will be released this Spring. The Wyoming quintet, featuring Encampment's Alysia Kraft, vocals, guitar; Star Valley's Dee Tyler, vocals, lead guitar; Lander's Scott Clabby, drums; Cheyenne's Niles Mishke, bass; is known for making crowds shake a leg and shake a room with their moon howling, fast riding, train robbing tunes*

"Raw and Edgy Roots Rock"
- Brian F. Johnson, Marquee Magazine
"Deftly balancing heartache and hubris, the Northern Colorado threesome has a rollicking good time exploring its own anger and angst with a richly layered sound that contrasts strikingly with its gritty lyrics."
- Eryc Eyl - Denver REVERB
With rich harmonies, thought provoking lyrics, and a sound that betrays influences like Drive-By Tuckers, The Band, and Neil Young, Mosey West is mature beyond their years."
- Tim Dwenger, Listen Up Denver
"Mosey West opts for a heartfelt, no-frills approach to alt-country that owes more to Uncle Tupelo than to Wilco"
- Jon Solomon - Denver Westword
The Parlor Pickers
The Parlor Pickers are an outfit from Denver, CO that specialize in their own unique brand of music known as ‘Roadhouse’ (a blend of good ol’ fashioned Rock n’ Roll, Blues, Country, and Bluegrass). We formed around Christmas 2009 and released our first EP, A Stewart Family Christmas that was mainly given to friends and family as a Christmas gift. After continually busking on lamp-lit street corners; playing in the rowdiest of LoDo bars; honing our musical prowess in burrito shops, and lighting up many a small-town stage, people from the orange groves of Florida to the sun-soaked beaches of California have started to be drawn to the exciting and fun atmosphere The Parlor Pickers provide. This support prompted us to go back into the studio and record the songs that excited those who have seen us live and we released our debut full-length album Barn Burner in May 2011. Judging by the overwhelming support of the music from literally every age demographic we believe the unique sound and the party atmosphere The Parlor Pickers provide speaks for itself in regard to where this band will go in the next few years.
