A. Tom Collins
A. Tom Collins and his band are an act hard to pigeon-hole, navigating the murky swamps of New Orleans R&B and '60s Soul, and following the cues of diverse inGluences from Tom Waits and Cab Calloway, to The Stooges and Sam Cooke. A. Tom Collins drops anchor with an impressive crash at each and every port, transfixing bewildered audiences with its strange brand of old time futurism that is as familiar as it is refreshing. Expect wild horns, surprising rhythms, catchy gang chants, and one hell of a live show led by piano-man Aaron Collins, whom Denver's alt-weekly Westword called 'one of the city's best front-men.'
In its short history, A. Tom Collins has been a featured headliner the Denver Post Underground Music Showcase in 2011/12/13, made appearances at SXSW 11/12/13, Denver's Westword Music Showcase 2010 to 13, Snowball Music Festival 2012 in Vail, the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater, Bohemian Nights Festival in Ft. Collins, New Belgium's Tour de Fat, and toured the European continent this past summer with dates in Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, and the UK.
They have shared bills with notable acts such as Alabama Shakes, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Sally Ford And The Sound Outside, March Fourth Marching Band, Nathaniel Rateliff, and the late, great T-Model Ford. This fall of 2013,the band hits the road in support of their debut full-length 'Stick & Poke', produced by the legendary Bob Ferbache(Slim Cessna's Auto Club/16 Horsepower), is available now on CD,12" Vinyl, and digitally everywhere. South West and West Coast dates TBA soon.
Ark Life comes from the mountains.

Led by dynamic young singer-songwriter/guitarist Nate Cook, young Boulder trio The Yawpers (named after Walt Whitman's promise to "sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world") recall a grittier version of Wilco, with as much raw country sensibility as twisted indie imagination. Equally akin to Deer Tick, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Elvis, The Yawpers give a fresh blend of indie-country and rock 'n' roll. The band's debut CD, Savage Blue, is due 11/29/2011 on Adventure Records.
The partnership between Adventure Records and the Yawpers aims to bring soulful, Southern-tinged rock 'n' roll from the Front Range to the larger music world. Savage Blue was recorded in three locations - with former Smashing Pumpkins engineer Bill Douglas in Colorado Springs, with talented young engineer Tira Neal at tastefully lo-fi studio in Broomfield, and at Yawpers guitarist Jesse Parmet's apartment/studio in Boulder. Highlighting the simultaneous romance and ravage of singer/guitarist Nate Cook, Savage Blue alternates between sinister indie dirge ala The Black Angels; poignant, off-the-rails Exile On Main St.-style rock; and desolate, dusty balladry.
Equally akin to Deer Tick, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Elvis, The Yawpers give a fresh blend of alt-country and rock 'n' roll. And they're playing in your town very soon.
