For Jeff Brinkman, writing a good song is like filling a pool with his emotions and inviting others to jump in. At age 7, he started learning guitar. After losing his mother to cancer when he was 10, he wrote a letter to her, which turned into his first song. Since then, Jeff has been sharing his experiences through writing and playing music.
The late night bar scene was a dark and narrow road during Jeff's early years as a struggling musician. He almost threw in the towel looking for a fresh start, but instead found inspiration in sobriety.
Jeff and his team now offer their music to causes that move and shake the spirit, motivating people to make a difference. Their most recent album, "To The Bones," is a fusion of loss, love, insight and hope. It's music where others can find a piece of themselves.
As Colorado's music scene has exploded over the past few years, one of its mainstays has been Wendy Woo. Her energetic personality, musical skills, and spirited songwriting have made her a media and fan favorite and have taken her to venues across the country including the Fox Theater and Red Rocks in Colorado, the Bitter End and the Living Room in New York, the Hotel Cafe in Los Angles, the Bluebird Café in Nashville, Sweetwater in Mill Valley, and Eddie's Attic in Decatur, Georgia.
Anticipating the rise of the independent artist, Woo formed her own corporation, Woo Music. Through that she runs her own record label (eight albums), publishing company, booking agency, and management company.
Woo was born in New York and moved to Boulder as a toddler when her parents Jane, an artist, and Bataan, a poet, became founding faculty members of Naropa University. The Faigao home was a gathering spot for such literary icons as Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, Merry Prankster Ken Kesey, and 1960s chronicler Norman Mailer.
Among Woo's many accolades:
• Five-Time Winner Best Singer/Songwriter (Denver's Westword) (Now in Westword's Hall of Fame).
