Jordyn Pepper

Jordyn Pepper

She is the perfect blend of organic, deep-mountain roots, folk (with a little splash of soft blues), rock and country. Put it all together and you have the makings of an Americana artist. Her name is Jordyn Pepper, and she has something to sing about. Recently signed to Howlin’ Dog Records Jordyn just released her first single "Back to My Roots" which is from her freshman album Mountain Rain that will be released later this year. This Nashville based singer/songwriter is described by many as a breath of fresh air, with crystal-clear vocals and a uniqueness that only says, “That’s Jordyn Pepper.”

"We here at Howlin’ Dog hear shades of Loretta Lynn, Natalie Maines, Stevie Nicks and others in the lineage of great female singers, but most of all we hear Jordyn Pepper, weaving all of these threads into a seamless expression of a young woman venturing out into the world,”
Don Richmond, engineer/producer at Howlin’ Dog, said.

Originally from Monte Vista, Colorado, Jordyn says growing up in a small town on a potato and barley farm with not much music influence was hard for a girl trying to find her voice. 

“I would sing as much as I could whether it would be in church, driving the tractors in the fields or even in my room with a hairbrush,” she said. “I would sing all the time! My mom would always say, ’I hear a diamond in the rough,’ when I was singing.” 

In her early years, Jordyn was very influenced by country music, mainly because that was the only radio station in her small town. Her favorite group back then were the Dixie Chicks; which you can hear a little weave of their influence in some of the music she writes today. Since moving to Nashville (and just plain growing up), she became more influenced by other groups and singer/songwriters such as Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, Patty Griffin, John Butler Trio, Led Zeppelin, and Mindy Smith. You can hear a little of each of these artists — with her own twist on them _— in her songs. One of the highlights of Jordyn's career was winning the 2016 Josie Music Awards for Individual Vocalist of the Year for Folk/Americana/Bluegrass. 

Jordyn will be hitting the road this summer on her first tour to promote her soon-to-be-released album "Mountain Rain." If she is in your area come in and join the fun! Find out why she plays her shows barefoot. Join Jordyn's mailing list to find out what's happening and what's in the future for her adventures. She is your organic, free-spirited, barefoot hippie and her story continues to be written.

Grifters and Shills

Check out Grifters and Shills here

High lonesome heavy metal - amplifyin' and testifyin' for your soul.

His was hard rock and heavy metal. Hers was the classic sound of the East Texas piney woods. Theirs was a fiery collision, bearing forth a sound that was at once novel and instantly familiar--nodding to roots seated deep in high lonesome harmonies and back porch blues, while peering out at a scorched path bound by modern assertions and contemporary commentary. 

Behind Grifters & Shills is John and Rebecca Stoll, who met in a classic rock/blues jam band in 2008. Between them they discovered a magnetic chemistry that manifested not only in music, but in all aspects of their relationship. When they began playing songs as a two-piece band, they found a unique voice in the combination of Rebecca's East Texas vocal stylings and John's formidable guitar work. They immediately began writing their own original songs, while testing the waters of vocal harmonies, and adding an array of instrumentation to their arsenal, including bass guitar, cigar box, resonator, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, lap steel and harmonica. 

The sound defies genre, but they call it roots music, as there are obvious influences from americana, rock, ragtime, blues and bluegrass.  

Above all, this two-person, dozen-instrument act provides a show full of sound a fury, punctuated with raw, quiet vulnerability, shining new light on familiar ground.

We are a married couple who play music together. My husband, Jason, is a long time crooner/harmonica/percussion player who quasi recently picked up the guitar again. I (Misti) play mandolin/ukulele/guitar and sing as well. We are always finding time to practice, write, collaborate and enjoy life through music. We are in a Grand Junction local band, Sassy Red Trio, but are finally giving this project, which can travel and has it’s own sound, an official name and all that goes along with it. We look forward to spending available weekends out of town playing music and networking. This is just one of those passions that we can’t just leave at home. On to adventure!

The Logan Brothers

to Jun 30

The Logan Brothers

he Logan Brothers are Steve Barbee, Jonathan Satz, and Danny Brennan-Combs.

Steve and Jonathan have been playing music together in some form or fashion since 1977. In college, they played at coffee houses, open mics, and occasional talent contests. They took the name The Logan Brothers for their current-day band to honor their past: they met at Utah State University in Logan, Utah, and they are like Brothers (of different mothers), with over 40 years of friendship. 

Steve has been singing in choirs since he was 6 years old. He was inspired to perform by watching his older sister's folk-duo during the Peter, Paul, and Mary era. His musical tastes were influenced by the records his older brothers listened to: The Beatles, The Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Alice Cooper and the like. Steve tried learning the guitar at age 12, but didn't get serious about it until he heard John Denver play "Rocky Mountain High" the year he graduated from high school.  Besides playing on and off with Jonathan in and after college, he performed as a solo musician and in various ensembles for many years while living in Salt Lake City. Jonathan began playing guitar in high school and also sang in choirs since he was 14 years old. He's been singing ever since in community choirs and musical theater. The Logan Brothers is Jonathan's first formal band. 

After Steve moved to Glenwood Springs in 2004 (where Jonathan already lived), Jonathan and Steve revived their musical partnership and began playing at local open mics and other venues. After a couple of forays with other musicians, and honing their sound as a duo, they formed The Logan Brothers and played their first gig in September 2012. They have been playing gigs in the area ever since (click to see where The Logan Brothers have played). Steve plays a number of instruments, but with The Logan Brothers he focuses on acoustic and electric guitars and harmonica and sings lead vocals. A goal since high school, but not begun until he turned 50, Jonathan learned electric bass, which he plays for The Logan Brothers. He also sings backup harmonies. The Logan Brothers has been mostly a trio (adding drums) since December of 2014.

Danny joined The Logan Brothers in October, 2016. Starting to drum as a young teenager, Danny played his first gig at fifteen, which sealed his love for drumming in a band to this day. After playing in several bands in the Denver area where he grew up, Danny moved to The Roaring Fork Valley in 1978. Based in Glenwood Springs, Danny was a member of Nobody's BusinessThe BizWide Load, and then The Rock Dogs, a band that performed in the valley for 20 years. Danny took a brief hiatus from drumming after the Rock Dogs disbanded before joining The Logan Brothers.
