Blake Brown & The American Dust Choir
Blake Brown is an American singer-songwriter.
Raised in the dust and desert of West Texas and currently residing in the Rocky Mountains, Brown is a simple man with stunning talents. His boots have stomped alongside some of the nation's finest musicians, his voice has been accompanied by some of the most beautiful sirens and his hands have strummed some of the most darkly charming melodies. Brown finds his faith and his inspiration in our American past-- in a time when life was stripped down to the raw beauty it was meant to be. His music is rooted in acoustic sounds and characterized by his simple, yet complex melodies and heartfelt lyrics, giving his audience a stark satisfaction in every note. Marked by a strangely captivating subtleness, Brown's music and haunting stage presence leaves bystanders with something to think about and wanting more.
Sometimes he plays solo.
Sometimes he is backed by The American Dust Choir.
Autodidact and alleged bastard royalty, Joshua Novak burst onto the Denver music scene in early 2000--young, carefree and seemingly touched with effortless pop magic. Since then, he has become a celebrated fixture of the scene. Recently, he placed in the top 20 out of 560 bands in the DENVER POST's BEST OF THE UNDERGROUND and received his sixth WESTWORD SHOWCASE nomination. Joshua is one of fifteen winners in the MODMUSIC RECORDS INDIE BAND SEARCH in N.Y. and has played RED ROCKS as part of the epic MONOLITH FESTIVAL which included acts like TV ON THE RADIO, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, THE KILLS, JUSTICE and others.
He has shared the stage with the likes of LIAM FINN, ELF POWER, BRENDAN BENSON, EVAN DANDO, WOVENHAND, AZURE RAY, THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, THE FRUIT BATS, THE VEILS, TURIN BRAKES (etc..), and played Denver's best venues including The Gothic, The Bluebird, Hi-Dive, Larimer Lounge, The Oriental Theater, The Walnut Room and even at the famous club, The Bitter End, in New York City.
He has received sensational reviews in BILLBOARD MAGAZINE, WESTWORD, THE DENVER POST and THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS as well as notable on-line sources and music mags such as KAFFEINE BUZZ, DENVER SYNTAX & INDIE-MUSIC.COM.
Recently, Joshua's highly anticipated full-length album, DEAD LETTERS, was released to critical acclaim. Both the DENVER POST and WESTWORD included it in their best albums of the year lists for 2010.
