Josh Rogan

Josh Rogan is true grit, living the love he sings. His music is rock roll soul with a near constant message: you’ve got to dream to make it happen, and it ain’t nothing if you don’t believe. It is about the emotions we share, it’s about down-and-out and up-and-up, it’s about freedom, fear, hope, passion, thrills and the beauty of the open country. Ben Sellers at Cville Weekly says Rogan’s “dark bluesy rock might just as easily have hopped from the same rail that carried Elvis into Memphis, or drifted ashore in the same Baha tide that produced Chris Isaak.”

Rogan’s first two albums contained a gritty, hard-driven rock and roll sound. With his latest, At the End of the Day, he has tapped back into his acoustic blues roots and plays heart-felt, wrenching soulful original tunes. The album tells the story of his life with songs resurrected from a childhood of adventure and story-searching. The last track Scottsville Rain is a combination of old and new with an updated song written on a train in Spain as he sailed around the world on a tall ship at seventeen. It begins with a personal recording of a thunderstorm falling on beer cans at his house in Scottsville, Virginia. Rogan’s songwriting has a simple style where the silence is as important as the notes. The songs are about loss, longing, love, and the pain and joy of being human. He sings with a compassion that says I understand the feeling and I’ve been there too.

The music is Americana. Blues. Rock and Roll. And a dream. Not just an American dream—a universal dream, to be free, exchange stories, share music, to ride the open road. A dream of getting there, wherever there may be. But perhaps Rogan says it best himself, “Having a dream keeps you going, that’s for sure. If you have something you want and you don’t have it yet, it gets you up everyday.”

Josh has produced three albums of his original material.  He and his wife Eliza are living in Redstone Colorado with their daughter Ramona and two hilarious dogs.  Colorado has become home for now on their journey around the country.

Jill Cohn

Jill Cohn

A Radio Station recently called a concert with Jill Cohn "an evening of Folk Americana Bliss".  Her Soul-Stirring Voice in combination with lush arrangements of toe tapping road stories had the Los Feliz Journal (Los Angeles, CA) naming her "Beautiful I Love You" album a top 10 indie pick of the year.

2016 finds Miss Cohn in the middle of a break out year as she continues touring in support of her new single, "Honey Dear" which has been charting for 31 weeks on Americana Radio.  The single is from her new CD entitled "Heartstrings Touching Ground" which is receiving accolades from radio and press nation wide, with some stating that this album may be "Cohn's most important release to date". 

    "Heartstrings Touching Ground" was produced and recorded by Grammy Award Winning Producer Malcolm Burn who has credits with Bob Dylan, Daniel Lanois  and is best known for his  production on "Red Dirt Girl", by EmmyLou Harris.

   After receiving a live version of Jill's song, "Yellow  Rose" which is about the struggles of the common man  against corporate America, Burns invited the Seattle  Songstress to record with him  in his studio in upstate New York late last year. This collaboration has resulted in a stunning new collection of deeply personal songs with a universal message of hope.  

Burns created a one of a kind musical soundscape for these songs and while he is credited for backing vocals, guitars, piano, bass, the way his sonic layers embrace the masterful drumming of Manuel Quintana and Cohn's emotive vocals, can only be summed up as, "Art - Produced by Malcolm Burn".

While on tour in support of her 2012 Self-produced release,"Beautiful I Love You", the Song, "Yellow Rose" came to Cohn after a chance meeting with a family at a truck stop. "They were migrating to the West Coast in search of work", says Cohn, "and their story became one that I had to tell as there are so many people like them, who simply haven't 'recovered' their lives since the downturn in 2008". Deeply touched by the response from audiences who heard the "Yellow Rose" song live, and consequently shared their own stories with Cohn, the songstress realized that she herself should step out of her own economic insecurities and reach a little further by seeking the right setting for the song to be recorded. Through Cohn's earlier work with Engineer-Producer, Jim Watts (Window To the Wise 2000, Traveling Companion 2005, Mexico City 2008, Beautiful I Love you 2012), a connection was made with Burns and the song was sent out for the possibility of a collaboration.

The "Heartstrings Touching Ground" album is diverse in subject and music, and while it observes some social issues like economic inequality and immigration, there is a light hearted love story to the album with songs like "Honey Dear" and "Missouri" that have inspired many folks to get up and dance at Jill's live shows.  Even with all of Heartstrings' layers and lyrics, Cohn's soothing voice leads the way through the song cycle that leaves the listener with a sense of hope that even in the worst of times there is music and light that penetrates all dark corners.

Cohn's songs pay homage to artists like Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan and the Counting Crows, with tunes ranging from personal reflections to musical contemplations of social issues, love and spirituality. Raised in a small town in Eastern Washington, Cohn started singing before she started talking, and music has always been an integral part of her journey. A full-time musician since 1999, Cohn has released many critically-acclaimed independent releases, has gained notoriety with her songs placed in popular TV shows and continues making her live shows the centerpiece of her musical endeavors. In addition to being an endorsee of Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings since 2001, she was a top five finalist in the Lilith Fair Talent Search, Jewel's Soul City Cafe and has shared the stage with many artists including: Jewel, Dave Matthews, Cheryl Wheeler, and most recently at two Sold out Concerts in California opening for the "Godfather of Americana Music"- David Bromberg.  In 2016 Miss Cohn was a featured guest artist on Dakota Midday, Nebraska Public Radio and South Dakota Public Radio's live concert broadcast, "No Cover".

The Logan Brothers

The Logan Brothers

The 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.
