SHEL is Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza, four classically trained musicians who happen to be sisters ranging in age from 18-23. From the artist colony of Fort Collins, Colorado, SHEL is sophisticated and youthful, emotional and lighthearted, classic and eccentric. SHEL’s engaging live show is marked with a prodigy’s creativity and a veteran’s instinct for entertaining. Audiences delight with their unique songwriting style and fresh, new sound.
The Holbrook sisters grew up in a musical household and first appeared on the stage backing their singer-songwriter father, Andrew Holbrook. In 2005, the girls collaborated to form SHEL and now play and write all of their own music. Their new EP, “ When the Dragon Came Down,” was co-produced by SHEL and six-time Grammy award-winner, Brent Maher. The band has attracted the attention of such major media outlets as NPR’s “eTown Live,” and ABC.com; toured nationwide playing fairs and festivals including South by Southwest, International Folk Alliance, Lilith Fair, Four Corners Folk Festival and Cornerstone; and had one of their songs featured in Glade’s Scented Oil Candles national TV ad campaign.

Patti Fiasco. Now boasting two years of touring, writing, recording, and playing heart and face- melting shows together, this rare crew of Wyoming rockers is onto something special. Their Wyoming heritage and affinity for old-school country inspires an inevitable (and endearing) twang, though the Patti Fiasco still wears the pants of a rock and roll outfit. Frontwoman Alysia Kraft, “seething with talent and energy” (www.99thepoint.com) “has star quality pouring out of her.” (Sonic Reducer, Official Fanzine for the Rock and Roll Tribe). Veteran and versatile rockers Dee Tyler (guitar), Niles Mischke (bass), Scott Clabby (drums) shape the sound, and Ansel Foxley (electric dobro) makes a rock and roll weapon out of a roots instrument seldom electrified and incorporated in the rock and roll sound. With Kraft penning the tunes and the band fine-tuning structures and compositions, the Patti Fiasco puts forth songs with just enough twang, hook, pop sensibility, lyric savvy, and old school charm to bend genres and attract listeners from all sides of the musical spectrum. Their first full-length studio album, moments away from reaching the masses (set to release on June 30), is a testament to their versatility, a genre-bending and exuberant collection that loses none of the Patti Fiasco’s noteworthy live intensity in the studio polish.

Rosewood Divine. Months after 2 cross country moves, new jobs, and new lives, Ali Paine and Shaefer Welch now call Fort Collins, CO home. Both leaving the mecca of the music industry in Nashville, TN behind, the two have brought their talents and styles together to form Rosewood Divine. After years of learning, writing, and playing, they both found themselves aspiring for a change. Paine, a native of Glenwood Springs, found that returning home to Colorado would be the most ideal location for continuing her music with a fresh start. Welch was soon to follow and in time, Rosewood Divine was in the beginning stages of a harmony driven duo. Welch brings a gritty acoustic country sound to complement the incredible voice and lyrically savvy Paine. Together the two have found a folky, harmony driven sound that reaches out to all. More >>>
