Creature Canopy
Creature Canopy is a two-piece Electronic Rock outfit from Denver, Colorado. The band is populated by Cody Troyer (Vocals, Production, Synthesizers) and Joe Mondragon (Vocals, Guitar).

Creature Canopy released their first EP (Self-titled) in December of 2015. The Permanent Rain Press (A real publication) praised the debut as “upbeat and fresh,” and "technically captivating with its use of electronic beats and the pair’s poignant, contrasting vocals.” The third song from the EP, “Heartbeat,” was selected as a finalist for 93.3 KTCL’s Big Gig 2016 contest.

The band released their second EP, “Again” in December of 2016 and played their release to a sold out audience at Larimer Lounge in Denver.

They are going to keep being a band.

Compass & Compass

Compass & Cavern is a three-piece alternative rock band from Denver, CO. The band was formed in December 2014 and has since risen quickly in the Colorado music scene. C&C’s first official release, Mother of Invention – EP, included the songs “MetaFor” and “Brainstorm” which helped the group win KTCL 93.3’s Demo Derby and secure supporting sets in several of Colorado’s most well-known venues.

​Recently, the band’s song, “Good Enough” from their new Before It Begins album, placed third in KTCL 93.3’s Big Gig competition which earned them the opportunity open up the festival on the Locals stage.

The Violet Tides

With a hint of punk, a punch of pop, and a whole lot of nerve, The Violet Tides is one of Northern Colorado’s premier pop-alternative bands. Kenzie Culver’s startling vocal power, range, and attitude convey the conviction of a new generation on the rise. She and drummer Mason Culver, guitarist Dillon deBord, and bassist Kaelan Ramirez create a sound that is youthful yet edgy, emotional yet aggressive.

The band’s 2017 release, Afraid of Being Saved, styles their alt-rock sound with infectious hooks, electronic effects, and provocative lyrics. Denver’s 303magazine describes the title track as “a rollercoaster of emotions from resistance to change to hope.” The same song earned the band semifinalist status in the 2017 Unsigned Only Music Competition.

Formed in 2013, the band has won multiple awards, including first place in both the Colorado You Got Talent Competition and the Keptone Battle of the Bands, advanced band division. The Violet Tides also earned the Stars of Tomorrow People's Choice Award and were named an official band for music therapy charity Blue Star Connection. They’ve played prominent venues throughout Colorado, including the famed Mishawaka Amphitheatre and Ryan Seacrest's Denver Seacrest Studio. In addition, frontwoman Kenzie Culver’s L.A.-produced solo track “Are You with Me” has earned over 100,000 views on YouTube. The Violet Tides enjoy frequent airplay and media coverage in Denver and Northern Colorado.
