Liat, Wendy Woo. Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm. Aural Elixir: Singer-pianist-composer, Jesse Maclaine, has created a unique, soulful jazz-rock-folk-pop sound with Aural Elixir. Often compared to Tori Amos & Joni Mitchell, Jesse Maclaine performs both solo & ensemble as Aural Elixir. Classically trained & steeped in jazz traditions, Aural Elixir delivers an exciting new sound inspired by New Orleans, music history, & the diversity of modern life. Liat: Liat's voice has a haunting quality that is somehow comforting, and a musical style that has been described as "folk-edge." Liat's unforgettable songs range in attitude. She works with a variety of musicians in a spirit of mutual collaboration in which her style melds with others'. Liat received some formal music training as a child in voice, piano, and guitar. She then wrote her first song at age fourteen, shortly after her father taught her some chords on the guitar. During high school she formed a band, which played all over Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York City. It was at this time she developed her songwriting process. "It depends on the situation, but I usually improvise where music and lyrics are concurrent. I start with a chord progression, turn the recorder on, and start singing words." While studying speech pathology at Temple University, she took vocal therapy, where she was introduced to many different vocal techniques, including different ways of massaging the vocal chords and new breathing techniques to help support the diaphragm. By helping her understand the anatomy of the voice box, this science background gave her the knowledge to use her voice in the healthiest way. Over the past 3 years, Liat's musical vocation has become twofold: she performs her own compositions in concerts and in therapeutic contexts. She is a music specialist at a preschool, singing with children under the age of 5 years old. "There is no judgement with this beautifully pure audience. They are down for anything!" Children love to dance, clap and stomp to Liat's original songs, which also accompany books. By playing live music during yoga classes, Liat provides a calming centering milieu for the yogis as well as for herself. Many consider Liat to be a sound healer, restoring spirits from infants to elderly. Liat has performed in venues across the globe from Colorado to New York to Israel. Her performances also include many festivals such as ARISE, Evergreen Music Festival, Uke Festival presented by Swallow Hill Music, and Sister Winds in Colorado; Beardfest, Cape May Music Festival, and NJ Folk Festival in New Jersey. She was featured on NBC-10 Morning News for Best Artist of South Jersey. Liat aims to reconnect the mind, body, and spirit through music. Be it live, via download, on CD, or radio and television, you won't want to miss this emerging artist. Wendy Woo: 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). One of Denver's Top Five Bands, Channel 7 A-List (2009). Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Competition Top Four (2004). Independent Artist of the Year (2003) (Hapi Skratch Entertainment). Best Boulder Musician (The Boulder Weekly). Best Singer/Songwriter (The Boulder Daily Camera). Best Local Artist (Colorado Daily). Winner of the Colorado Lilith Fair Talent Search (sharing the stage with Sarah McLachlan and The Indigo Girls). Named to music critics' "Best Colorado CDs of the Year" lists: Ecolalia (The Denver Post and Westword) and Gonna Wear Red (DenverLocalMusicScene). In addition: Woo's song, "Walking the Skyline, " was used by HDNet as its promo song for the 2008 season.She and her band performed a two-hour concert broadcast nationally on Altitude Sports and Entertainment Network.She sings the theme song for Good Day Colorado, the weekday morning show on Denver's Fox affiliate.She has been part of national sports retailer Title Nine's Emerging Women Artist series. Her music has been featured in: Uncommon Goals, a Discovery Channel documentary about the gold medal-winning U.S. women's soccer team. Mountain of Dreams, a documentary about Mt. Everest. The Food Network's FoodNation with Bobby Flay.

Homevibe Holiday Show: Highland Ramblers, the Fremonts, Kevin Mileski, 80's Song Circle
Doors: 6:30 pm / Show: 7:00 pm. Highland Ramblers: North Denver's Highland Ramblers create handmade, mile high music. Blending elements of Blues, Folk and Bluegrass, this ve piece draws inspiration from classic artists such as Graham Parsons and the Grateful Dead with a nod to more contemporary bands from Ween to Wilco. Over the past decade, their unique sound has earned accolades from Westword (Ten of the Best Bluegrass Bands in Colorado: 2016 Edition) and CBSDenver (Top Local Bluegrass Bands in Colorado). 2017 marked the release of their latest EP, Brand New Holes. The single Love Me on the Highway is a mid-tempo, honky-tonker exploring the tribulations of finding love in rush hour gridlock traffic. The Fremonts: Born in New York City and raised in Boulder, Colorado, The Fremonts weave Midwestern ghost stories into restless Americana music. Stephanie Dodd (originally from Fremont, Nebraska - vocals/keyboard/xylophone/accordion) and Justin Badger (originally from Fremont, California - vocals/guitar/kick drum) lace their sound with bluegrass, country, blues, folk and indie pop influences. By blending Dodd's lyrical voice and Badger's turbulent style, they take on a range of topics from sprawling tales of escape and ambition to quiet disenchantment with traditional roles in American family life. In their three years of creating music together, The Fremonts have unearthed fresh authenticity in their writing and performances through dedicated practice and community building. Kevin Mileski: His music has been called the new style of any generation. "There are a lot of singer-songwriters out there; but you pay attention when he performs. There's just something about the way he plays that makes you want to know what's next." Kevin Mileski has been hailed as the fresh new act bringing back the artistry of story telling by using just the right amount of new sound with the familiarity of the old. He evokes a feeling of home with finger style guitar and vocals that makes any listener a fan. He has touched the fans of all types of music from hardcore folkers to rappers and continues to do so with every performance on every stage. Kevin is a nationally touring musician now based out of Colorado and uses every opportunity possible to play in other cities around the country from New England to L.A. He has opened for such major acts as Sam Bush, Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root, Little Feat, and Gaelic Storm. Kevin has been featured on many independent recordings, has teamed up with numerous professional performers, and has made his niche as a background vocalist all over the country for such artists as Dayna Lane, Andrew Ripp, Heather Waters, and Randy Coleman. He was voted in as a top 50 semi-finalist in the Independent Music World Series 2004 by TAXI for his album "Which Way Did He Turn?" which has sold over 1000 copies in the last two years. The 2006 release of "Through The Window" has resulted in Kevin's induction into the Independent Artists Registry. His music has been featured on Musicmatch.com, MP3.com, Audio Lunchbox, XM Radio, and recently on Whole Wheat Radio. It has been heard on public and commercial radio stations across the country. Emily Barnes: Tucked away in a town so tiny it isn't found on most maps, singer-songwriter Emily Barnes can be found sitting on the stone steps of her 200 year old home stitching together the latest melody from the fabric of her mind. That is on the rare occasion she is home. For the past few years, Emily has been tirelessly trekking down the open road playing venues of all shapes and sizes stopping listeners dead in their tracks with a voice that cuts to the bone and songs that pull on the heart strings. Now a nationally touring artist, Barnes continues to build a grassroots following from city to small town, one new believer at a time. Like the house she sometimes rests her head in, Emily is an old soul and her live performances stand the test of time. There is a feeling one gets when witnessing something authentic and rare, and that aura permeates the room at an Emily Barnes show. Dave Tamkin & Brad Huffman: Singer/Songwriter, Dave Tamkin, currently resides in Boulder, CO. He has created his own unique style of rhythmic-acoustic sounds that's based around a fresh musical vision. His shows vary from intimate solo acoustic performances to a full band experience (dBsound.Co) encapsulating a mixture of personal lyrics and skilled songwriting set against a high-energy percussive backbone. He's shared the stage with Guster, The Samples, Brendan James, Rusted Root, Donavon Frankenreiter, Butch Walker, Freddy Jones Band, Eric Hutchinson, Willy Porter, The Violent Femmes, and Peter Mulvey to name a few. Tamkin has a style that's hard to resist. His lyrics are unabashedly honest and his passion for playing is undying. Josh Queen: When a chance encounter with a homeless man in a Denver parking lot left singer-songwriter Josh Queen thinking about how quickly people judge one another, a song was in the making. There comes a time in every songwriter's life where the stories songs tell move from personal experiences to the things happening in the world around them. For this 28-year old songwriter, leaving the comforts of home in the Southeast was a catalyst for that change. The result is an introspective catalog of songs that examines the every day interactions people share and a reinvigorated passion for connecting with his audience. Josh's love for music began at the ripe age of 12 in Aiken, SC, when he picked up his first guitar and taught himself how to play. After graduating from Clemson University, where he formed the band Upstart Jackson, Josh headed to Charlotte, North Carolina. While there, he established himself as one of the Queen City's most promising musicians, touring the Southeast with his band and recording two EPs, This Is Me Movin' On and A Life Less Deceiving. "Maybe, " a single from the latter record, won Josh an Honorable Mention in the 2004 Billboard World Song Contest and was included on Alternative Addiction's Vol. 6 compilation disc. In 2006, Josh relocated to Denver to chase his dream of being a songwriter. There, he has found his creative home, a new perspective on the world, and himself. "Sometimes we need to be reminded that life is all about what we give back to each other, " Josh says. "It's our struggles with those connections in life that make us who we are and shape the world around us." Those connections are rife in nearly every one of Josh's songs, from the heartbreak of a loved one's illness in "Warm, " the excitement of transformation in "Big Escape, " or the turmoil of a friend's divorce in "Sideways." And then, there's the palpable guilt of "Strange Alibis, " the chronicle of Josh's missed connection with that homeless man. Throughout, his songs capture the emotion and delicacy that play themselves out in life while the world continues to spin. And while it spins, Josh writes.

An Evening with Ike Reilly and Johnny Hickman
Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 7:30 pm. Ike Reilly: Chicago, IL-based indie rock singer-songwriter Ike Reilly released his seventh studio album, Crooked Love, earlier this year via Rock Ridge Music. The New York Times has praised Reilly, writing: "Ike Reilly is a kind of natural resource, mined from the bedrock of music. All the values that make rock important to people—storytelling, melody, rage, laughter—are part and parcel of every Ike Reilly show I have ever seen. One of the best touring acts in the country, Reilly's band takes it as a personal challenge to upend and amaze every room they play in." Since his major label debut, the groundbreaking Salesmen and Racists, Reilly has been making punk/folk/blues influenced rock 'n' roll records that lean heavily on stories of outsiders with keen details and broad strokes that insinuate a crack in the American dream. Press praise for Reilly's music has been extensive over the years. Chicago Magazine lauded Reilly's "outlandish storytelling, underdog combativeness, and slapstick humor." Minneapolis City Pages said, "Equal parts punk rocker, poet, and blue-collar barfly, Reilly's stories are as bizarre and filthy and honest and pure as the people who come out to his shows. His songs reach out and grab people, shake them by the collars, make them jump up and down." Chicago Tribune admired that Ike "merges his affinity for folk-punk narrative and anthemic guitar chords with hip-hop's vocal cadences and rhythmic drive." PopMatters.com called him "the best songwriter in America... Hilarious, unsettling, raw... but mostly just rocking." USA Today hailed Reilly as "never less than original... ferociously intelligent... always worth listening to." And Los Angeles Times described Reilly's music as "...barroom rock narrated by a wiseguy who's as comfortable regaling PhDs and poets as he is pimps and porn stars." Johnny Hickman: Johnny Hickman is best known for co-founding the band Cracker in 1990 with David Lowery, his childhood friend from Redlands, CA, but his talents and musical styles run far deeper. His spirited co- writing and fiery lead guitar sound achieved platinum status with Cracker's alternative radio hits "Teen Angst, " "Low, " "Get Off This, " and "Eurotrash Girl." Cracker released ten albums, and Lowery and Hickman together are seen as godfathers of the alternative music scene, who turned gently away from plaid-clad grunge in the 1990s with more countrified and bluesy stylings. Hickman is also a successful and critically acclaimed solo artist with two releases to date: Palmhenge (recipient of NYC's The Village Voice's "Voices Choice" accolades) and the more recent critically acclaimed and successful Tilting. No Depression magazine called Palmhenge "wildly diverse - from the arena rock of 'Harvest Queen' to the Bakersfield country of 'Friends' to the splendid folk rock of 'Little Tom' and 'The San Bernardino Boy' - it blends those genres with a dash of alt-rock to create a surprisingly coherent whole." Occasionally, Hickman ventured away from solo work and Cracker to spearhead side projects, including his Colorado-based outlaw country band The Hickman-Dalton Gang. Retired side projects include All Thumbs Trio (with moe. guitarist Chuck Garvey, and East Coast guitarist Gibb Droll), and Crazysloth, an Arizona-based band he formed while recording Palmhenge. Film and TV work to date include one full film score for the independent "River Red, " placement of "Lucky" from Palmhenge in the FX series "Sons of Anarchy, " as well as the placement of Cracker songs in several popular movies and TV shows.

Shovelin Stone: With roots embedded in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and a sound unhinged in the capital of Texas, Shovelin Stone is a music almost as unique as the friendship it stems from. A shared passion for old-timey bluegrass is what brought Makenzie and Zak together, but it's the unknowing joy for the moment and the obsession with the complications that life brings that continues to push the duo forward. Within heartfelt lyrics and a unique musical composition the folk sound that projects from these two is not only going to get the audience thinking but on their feet. The road is winding but one thing is for sure that with these two at the wheel it's going to be a wild ride.
