Emerging from Denver, Colorado, a riveting story unfolds as a quartet journeys through their musical aspirations. Hailing from the four corners of the country, all four members moved to Denver within months of one another; fate proving itself in a year of change. Upon their first meet, an instantaneous bond formed, their chemistry taking flight, producing a well-formulated blueprint for the rock and roll they would soon create. With tasty melodies and intimately honest lyrics, their uniquely diverse sound became unable to harness.
Thus, circa 2012, Blue Mesa was born.
Paris By Sea
Lori and Michael started the band in 2009, which was called The New Distractions then, out of their shared passions for music. The two musicians had been friends since 1996, and thought it might be fun to start a music project. Michael played in many short lived rock bands and home recorded his own material (6 releases), from lo-fi inspired art-rock to electro-acoustic, and IDM. Lori came from a completely different type of background in music, singing in choirs, growing up with classical music, The Carpenters, and The Cure. Michael and Lori worked for years to find a balance between their approaches to music. Their shared tastes in music lead them to weave together their contrasting musical experiences. Lori's formal training and Michael's play-by-ear style were forged in their songwriting, and their sound has grown and developed over time. The journey hasn't always been an easy one, but their commitment has sustained the band and their common ground has kept their unique sound in tact. Ben joined the band in 2010 and when new drummer, Danny, came on board in 2012, they changed their name to Paris by Sea, which was an earlier project of Michael's. Paris by Sea is Lori Trautwein on lead vocals and keyboard, Michael B. Wenham on guitar and vocals, Ben Kessel on bass, and Danny Shuford on drums.
Summa, by definition, is the cohesion of distinct bases of knowledge into a comprehensive whole. When Jake O'Neal and Max Grossman formed their fresh duo, the moniker perfectly embodied their fusion of style and talent. Based out of Boulder, Jake recently graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in electrical engineering. But when he beat out 87 other vocalists to place 2nd in "CU Idol," he decided to turn his love of music into his full-time focus. Looking to diversify his solo act, Jake joined up with guitarist, bassist, drummer, and producer Max Grossman to create Summa. Described as "Jeff Buckley meets Coldplay," Summa will wield the summary of their respective parts to produce dynamic things in 2013.
It would be impossible to walk away from a Jacob Cade performance without being overwhelmed by the sheer energy he brings to the stage. Mixing old school rock and roll guitar shredding with dance moves straight out of modern pop, Jacob has tapped into a style that is unique and unexpected.
The multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter knew a life in music was in his future ever since he was eight-years-old when he watched Jimmy Page’s electric performance in the Led Zeppelin film, The Song Remains the Same. His band, Jacob Cade Project, has since gone on to perform at venues throughout Colorado, Texas, and Arizona.
Jacob recently finished recording his new EP, a project that took him to Nashville where he worked alongside one of the music industry’s most iconic producers: Michael Wagener. Wagener is known for his work on some of the most influential albums of all-time, including Master of Puppets for Metallica, No More Tears for Ozzy Osbourne, and Look What the Cat Dragged In for Poison. The EP, set to be released in January 2018, is the follow-up effort to Jacob’s debut album, Prince of Rock N Roll, which was released in 2015.
Away from music, Jacob is an avid supporter of organizations benefitting children battling cancer. It is a cause he has been passionate about ever since his sister was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 15. He has since jumped at opportunities to donate his time and artistic talents to child and teen cancer patients. Jacob is also a member of his high school soccer and track teams and enjoys playing pick-up games of basketball and football. During his downtime, he can be found watching Star Wars and James Bond movies, playing Call of Duty and Marvel vs Capcom, and checking out the latest fashion trends on Instagram.
