Emerging from Fort Collins, Colorado, Skydyed is a three-piece band that blends cutting edge electronic production with live instrumentation.
Featuring Andrew Slattery on bass synths and bass guitar, Max Doucette on guitar and keys, and Shane Eagen on drums, the band integrates generations of the state’s extensive musical heritage with their own deep-seated ties to the electronic music scene. With roots in rock, funk and jazz, Skydyed has created their own, diverse sound that intertwines organic live drums, bass and guitar through soulful jam, hard-hitting bass and profound break-beats. With their unique and advanced production, Skydyed has established itself as a can’t miss performance that bridges the gap between EDM and live music.
Since their emergence in early 2014, Skydyed has seen their presence ascend exponentially. Already, they have donned the stage at Arise Music Festival, a sold out Bluebird Theatre with RJD2, as well as the legendary Red Rocks Ampitheatre at last years’ Feed The Rocks event. Their debut EP, ‘New Horizons’ is available for free download on Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp.

Blending strong lyrical and melodic influences from multiple genres, the four musicians comprising Post Paradise deliver an indie/alternative rock sound that is unique and memorable. Combined with a synchronized light show, Post Paradise bring a rock edge and reverberating beat to an underlying indie classical vibe, best showcased by the punctuation of the cello, played by Amy Morgan. Fusing the depth and beauty of the cello with singer/guitarist Nick Duarte’s signature vocals and edgy riffs, the two become the cornerstone of the quartet further enhanced by Mark Roshon on drums and percussion, and Brian Zeiger on bass guitar.
Together, the four create a sound all their own, with echoes of nineties alternative, modern indie poeticism, and classical music. Playing their first show in 2009, Post Paradise is now a seasoned and recognized entity on the Colorado music scene. The band’s newest EP, “Bring It To Life (Side A)” was released in October of 2015.

On February 25th, 2017, we released our debut EP under our band name. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We’re about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What’s funny is I’m pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with Dictionary.com. “Holdfast” was the “Word of the Day.” I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those “Words of the Day.” I admired the thought of “Holdfast” being one word, but it’s meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers – have done. & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life.
