Oscar The Cat

By: Steve Terry Project


Musical Style: Afrojazz, Dance Jazz, Jazz fusion

Musical Influences: Hebrew Folk Songs, Snarky Puppy, Athens Tango Project

Musical Inspiration: This song was directly inspired by a performance I attended of latin dance group the Athens Tango Project and was my take on a jazzy dance tune. Somehow I ended up channeling some Hava Nagila vibes and what we are left with is a relentless, solo-filled banger of a track.

Lyrical Inspiration: 

Artist Statement: Oscar the Cat is first and foremost a fun, light-hearted dance tune. With influences ranging from Latin dance music to Hebrew folk music, this track never has a dull moment as it tears through it's nearly five-minute-long structure.

Can't Stand Up

By: Eric Martinez


Musical Style: Rock and roll, Psychedelic rock

Musical Influences: Ray Wyllie Hubbard, The Rolling Stones, Vic Chesnutt

Musical Inspiration: I lot of times I would come up with something and say that sounds like a Daniel Hutchens song and I would send it to Danny and work on it together.

Lyrical Inspiration: Daniel Hutchens wrote the lyrics to this song about a stroke he suffered in Dec. 2016. It turned out to be the last song he and I wrote together (March 2018).

Artist Statement: As I was approaching the end of the recording process for this Caldera there was no doubt that this song would close out the record. it sounds like the end of a movie that had a good ending.

This Love

By: Michelle Sarah


Musical Style: Funk, Soul, Jazz Funk, Soul/R&B/Funk

Musical Inspiration: This is the ballad of the album. We re-harmed the chords in the verses prior to taking it into the studio to record, what we created was fresh and perfect for delivering the feel we wanted.

Lyrical Inspiration: This song is a love story. The tale of wanting your lover to be with you, missing them, recognizing how navigating life together, creating experiences and memories, hold us close, bind us, heal us, create the feeling that "we can't lose with this love". 

Artist Statement: We wrote the new chords for the verses while we were in session ready to record for the album, hearing the song being played behind me differently than i had ever heard before was a profound experience. It wasn't til I heard the playback that I realized what greatness we had achieved by making those changes. This song is perfection. I love the production on it, it's almost drippy wet, intimate, simple.

Egress

Musical Influences: Rebirth Brass Band, Hot 8 Brass Band, Big 6 Brass Band

Track Description: Denver’s mavericks of street music, Brothers of Brass, capture the energy of people leaving a concert in their original song “Egress.” With a titanic New Orleans brass band-inspired sound, “Egress” has all the key components of a full-bodied brass band hit with fiery trumpet screams, rousing saxophone solos, an commanding rhythm section of tuba and drums, and a surprise call-and-response vocal section at the end to take the song home. The group got their start busking on the 16th Street Mall and melds together roots from Atlanta, New Orleans, and the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado and has become a staple in both the local music scene and the touring circuit.

I Will Be Here

By: Michelle Sarah


Musical Style: Funk, Soul, Jazz Funk, Soul/R&B/Funk

Musical Inspiration: Funk and fun were the influence for this track! The music is a bit of a conversation, lots of back and forth kind of call and response thing happening. Super fun and dancy. 

Lyrical Inspiration: I wanted a show ender, I wanted it to be something people could sing along with, get stuck in their heads. The lyrics are about no place being too far away for love, and no star being too high to reach, basically go get what you want in life, no place is too far away and also, no matter what, I will be here.

Track Description: Michelle Sarah’s “I Will Be Here” is the perfect song to close out an invigorating set as it pulls out all the stops with vocal stacks, memorable sing-a-long melodies, and rousing horn parts courtesy of the Groupo Fantasma horn section. The lyrics give the audience an empowering message to take home with them as they speak to going out there and seizing what you want and knowing that you have the support to go do so. Michelle enlisted Steve Berlin of Los Lobos to produce her upcoming debut solo record with sessions taking place at Mighty Fine Productions in Denver, CO and Bud’s Recording Services in Austin, TX.
