Ark Life

Ark Life comes from the mountains.

From 2007 to 2012, songwriter Jesse Elliott led his rock&roll band These United States through 5 studio albums and nearly 1,000 live performances in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, appearing everywhere from Glastonbury to SXSW and Daytrotter to Lollapalooza, and garnering praise from NPR, the New York Times, SPIN, KEXP, and more. In December 2012, Elliott was stopping over in Denver for a month on his way to a new life in New York City. But as the members of Ark Life met each other, journeyed into the mountains, and started playing music together, it became clear he was going to have to stick around a bit longer. The 3-part harmonies of pianist Lindsay McWilliams, bassist Anna Morsett (also of TUS) and guitarist Natalie Tate just blended too perfectly with veteran Denver drummer Ben Desoto (Nathaniel Rateliff, The Czars, etc.) Elliott was smitten, and the result is a mile high ocean of uplift, equal parts mischief and heartthrob, that pulls as much from contemporaries like Cotton Jones, The Felice Brothers, and Fruit Bats as from the band's enduring loves for Leonard Cohen, CCR, Motown, and the classic campfire singalong.
