Daniel Hutchens and Eric Carter met each other when they were eight years old. They solidified their early friendship based on a mutual love of baseball, comic books, and rock n roll music. They grew up in West Virginia; much time during their high school years was spent on Skull Run Road, where Eric's family lived, a few miles outside Ravenswood. The boys recall that road as being the site of their first garage band practices. After high school, they started getting a little more serious about their blossoming songwriting partnership. Their road wound through Huntington, WV, and eventually on to Athens, GA, which they soon came to call home. They continued to concentrate on their songwriting, and by the early 90's they had a catalogue of over 300 compositions. By this time Hutchens and Carter had given their musical collaboration a "band name": Bloodkin.
Hymn For Her
AlthHymn for Her have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, injecting juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described as “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish,” and “Hillbillies with electronics opening Pandora’s Box”
In the spring & summer of 2016, they toured Europe and the UK. They returned to the States in the fall to promote their summer release, “Drive Til U Die” recorded partially in their Bambi Airstream and partially in studios with some great engineers/producers. (Vance Powell, Mitch Easter & Jim Diamond).
In 2017, they returned to the UK and Europe playing many festivals, including Glastonbury, to promote “Drive Til U Die” to their overseas audience.
A new release recorded with Vance Powell is due out in the Spring of 2018.
They recorded their 2nd album, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne and the Amairican Stream”, in their vintage 1961 Bambi Airstream trailer at locations stretching from Philadelphia to Malibu on a three-month tour.
For their 3rd release, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne’s Smokin Flames”, the twosome kicked it into high gear. They traveled to Ghetto Recorders/Detroit to work with Jim Diamond. They recorded live & mixed 12 original songs in just one week.
The duo certainly covers a lot of musical territory in 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: “The Riff Monster.”
Catch this duo as they burn down the highway and tear up your town like a Wichita twister.

The Sneaky Bastards
The Sneaky Bastards formed in 2009 and have quickly become a mainstay on the Colorado music scene. The bands sound combines the gritty songwriting of Mark Brut with the more pop rock stylings of Adam Kilgus. The band also has a knack for selecting choice covers, often by obscure artists, and making them their own. Drawing from influences all over the map, the general consensus in this band is that a great song is where it's at no matter where it lies in the music spectrum. The result has been a sound that is something different on the Denver music scene. In addition to guitarists and vocalists Brut and Kilgus, the band's lineup is comprised of Colorado music veterans Paul Cohen on bass, Ethan Ice on keyboards and Mike Matz on drums.
The band has performed all over Colorado as such venues as Cervante's and Quixote's True Blue in Denver, the Old Town Pub in Steamboat Springs, the Goat in Keystone and Cactus Jack's in Evergreen, and has appeared on the bill with many other great regional and national touring acts such as Johnny Winter, Betsy Franck & the Bareknuckle Band, Bret Mosley, the Dyrty Byrds, Daniel Lawrence Walker, Fried Grease and others.
