"Sam Lee...is the epitome of a storyteller. His lyrics are personal, raw, relatable, and his stage presence is intimate...he is one musician who's name won't soon be forgotten." writes Colorado Musiz Buzz.
A singer/songwriter from Denver, Colorado with a self-professed rock'n'roll complex, Sam Lee is making grass-roots waves both locally and across the country with singles "Secret" and "Burnin' Up" receiving radio play on terrestrial, college and internet radio. His 2011 debut EP, Better Half was recorded at the Blasting Room Studios by lauded Rise Against engineer Andrew Berlin, and produced by Christopher Jak.
In 2010, after several years collaborative projects, Sam began his own independent journey as a singer/songwriter. Today, he is making a name for himself as a compelling lyricist, singer and instrumentalist as well as a true-blue showman. He has shared the stage with national acts like Dia Frampton, Allen Stone, Tyler Ward and Michael McDonald. His first full-length record is set to drop in late 2012.
Sam's songs paint a picture of love and loss, passion and addiction, hope for a better future, life on the road and the power of music to capture a young man's soul. His voice, like that of a young Rod Stewart is alternately crisp and smoky, powerful and soulful. The songs carry hints of classic influences like The Boss, the Doobies and Petty, but ring with the modern flourish and discipline of Lenny Kravitz, John Mayer and Rob Thomas.
Listening to Sam's songs on record, or seeing him live, begs not the question of whether or not he will become an important part of rock music's new age, but when.
A combination of Elderly and Children, meet Eldren, a completely unique, 7-piece indie-rock outfit from the heart of Denver. Always surprising, usually in costume, Eldren is a band known for delivering an incredible live show. A mere six months into their formation the band has been packing clubs, garnering national support slots, and selling out of their debut EP faster than they can get hard copies to the shows.
Led by dynamic young singer-songwriter/guitarist Nate Cook, Boulder trio the Yawpers (named after Walt Whitman’s promise to “sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world”) recalls 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 gives a fresh blend of indie-country and rock ’n’ roll. The band's debut CD, "Savage Blue," met with praise from critics. Their debut LP, "Capon Crusade", will be released in October.
