Will Whalen

My Story: 
I started with a plastic keyboard and learned to play Beethoven. 
I got a guitar and learned to play Bob Dylan. 
I got a looper and I learned to play Death Cab for Cutie. 
I got a clue and learned to play my own music.

What I've got onstage is what determines my sound. You can expect some folk-rock if I'm jamming on my acoustic electric, or some jazz and classical piano if I'm on my keys. I can set a groove to the thick, plucky bass lines of Cake, build a soulful vocal from The Righteous Brothers, and recite Bach's Solfeggietto in C minor. I'm all over the map, and I want to take you with me.

My Musical Influences
(in order of appearance in my life)

- Pink Floyd
- Tom Waits (pre-Swordfish Trombones) 
- Harry Chapin
- Ludwig Van Beethoven
- Nobuo Uematsu
- Barenaked Ladies
- George Winston
- System of a Down
- Nine Inch Nails
- Nirvana
- Tool
- The White Stripes
- Radiohead
- Todd Snider
- Tom Waits (post-Swordfish Trombones) 
- Queens of the Stone Age
- Death Cab for Cutie
- Broken Bells
- Andrew Bird
- Shakey Graves
- Other Lives

When I moved from Brooksville, Florida to Grand Junction, Colorado in 2008, I had the chance to reinvent myself, and to pursue the driving allure of playing music for a living. Now, I've booked all across Colorado, from cozy bars to opulent resorts, singing storyteller songs with catchy hooks, and experimenting with the limits of what I can do with music. 
The Western Slope has really brought out my folk and singer-songwriter side, and given me some great ideas for writing, both from memory and fiction. And when you choose to start your life over, you need both. Many of my songs are about making decisions in the moment, the expectations we put on ourselves and others, and trying to maintain peace of mind in a chaotic world.

The Logan Brothers

The Logan Brothers Band, the 2016 and 2015 Glenwood Springs Post Independent's Locals' Choice Favorite Band, is a Glenwood Springs-based classic rock, modern rock, and folk rock cover band. Our characteristic sound comes from outstanding lead vocals, two-part harmony, guitar, melodic bass lines, drums, and harmonica.

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 35 years of friendship. 

Steve started playing guitar when he was 12 years old and has been singing in choirs since he was 6. Besides playing on and off with Jonathan in and after college, and performing as a solo artist while living in Salt Lake City, he was also a founding member of the popular acoustic duo, Stillwater,and performed as such for 12 years. 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. 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.

Jill Cohn

"Her songs are beautifully crafted, sometimes bittersweet and sometimes hopeful, but ever easy and melodic with soulful and savvy lyrics" - Chicago Tribune 5/2014

Songstress, Jill Cohn returns with a new release, "Heartstrings Touching Ground" produced 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 hearing Jill's song, "Yellow Rose"  Burns invited the Seattle Songstress to record with him in his Kingston NY studio.  This collaboration has resulted in a stunning new collection of deeply personal songs with a universal message of hope.

Fans of this independent songwriter have heralded “Heartstrings” as the “summum bonum of all her works”.  She spent most of 2015 on tour playing smaller venues to road test these new songs.  The album also found its way onto independent and Americana Radio and had vibrant airplay nationwide for nearly the whole year.  It spent over 30 weeks on the Americana Radio Chart and received many positive print reviews in towns where Cohn performed. 

2016 is becoming a year of change for many people with the coming elections in November.  Cohn’s “Heartstrings Touching Ground” album is gaining new fans in part because it features several topical songs that comment social issues.  Staying balanced when addressing sensitive topics, the Seattle Singer’s lyrics point to the humanitarian heart at the center of the most complicated issues, while still commenting on her love of family, neighbors and Country.  Over the course of her 11 releases, her material has been wide ranging, but on this album, stand-out songs seemed to have arrived in serendipitous timing.  The first, “Better Life,” is about immigration and the second, “Yellow Rose,” reflects upon the economic disparities in our country.

An evening with Jill Cohn has been described as an intimate evening with a good friend, and the 11th offering from Cohn, “Heartstrings Touching Ground” is continuing to have attention from radio and audience’s nationwide with NPR Nebraska and South Dakota both featuring in depth State-wide interviews with the singer earlier this year.  The steadily growing enthusiasm behind the album has Miss Cohn with concert bookings already spanning well into 2017.

 A full-time musician since 1999, Cohn has released nine 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 and has opened for a long list of many well-known artists, but stand-outs include:  David Bromberg, Cheryl Wheeler, Vonda Shepard, Loudon Wainwright, Dave Matthews and Jewel.

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 a 1962 Airstream with their dog Harley as they travel the roads between gigs.
