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.

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 freshman album "Mountain Rain." Her first single "Back to My Roots" was released earlier this year followed by her second single "1862" both from the album. 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 two years back to back the 2016 and 2017 Josie Music Awards for Individual Vocalist of the Year for Folk/Americana/Bluegrass.   

Jordyn's been hitting the road all summer on her first tour to promote her album "Mountain Rain."  She's had a blast meeting new faces and seeing great places.  Her tour continues into the fall and she is busy planning her next tour for the coming year.  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.

Tony Rosario

Tony Rosario is a home-grown tour-de-force of Colorado musical excellence, crossing the lines of R&B, Country,Rock & Roll, and Blues - armed to the chin-bone with great songs,  powerfully sincere vocals, confidently rock solid grooves, and a kaleidoscopic tapestry of guitar and percussive 
Big voice - big songs. Rock like a chain-gang. Country as a blues biscuit:-)

He is a true son of the soil and a Colorado favorite. He's a notorious smart-aleck and a broken hearted warrior. A clown prince and an old friend. The self-appointed Trailer-park Troubadour and "regular folks" representative ("If double-wide means upgrade, you sing the song of my people":-) He's a rugged oaken voiced guitar-slinger/troubadour - deftly running the rails from from Blues to Country to Rock to Folk to R&B and Soul, with all the purpose of a steam locomotive - and an "anything-but" common 1-man groove that runs a country mile wide and all day long.

Hillbilly Rhythm & Blues, Cowboy Rock & Roll, Double-Wide Dirt-Road Soul.

"I've wandered a bit. My old guitar has been my constant companion and confidante for as long as I can remember. Old ghosts live inside her wooden shell and when the night is right she sings to me and whispers great tales of love and loss - of heroes and friends. Like a warm breeze I will roll your way from time to time with a new story from an old confidante. This train has no destination , it's just meant to roll"

He's a skilled and powerfully entertaining performer. An engaging storyteller covering everything from heartaches to hard time with a subtle warmth that is in one moment the soft spoken country preacher, and in the next a wild eyed riverboat gambler bound straight for hell on the next thing smokin'. He wrings and wrangles and coaxes every last note out of his ancient Sears & Roebuck Silvertone guitar like an alchemist divining golden treasures out of common lead. An old wooden box suddenly becomes a kick drum and a foot-driven woodblock & tambourine contraption drives the backbeat like the authority of a chain-gang sledgehammer. When the show is over and the lights fall he leaves his audiences with the powerful notion that they've got a new confidante and some pretty simple things to feel good about.

The songs are real and gritty, upbeat and driving, painful and hopeful, playful and sincere, and everything in between. Stories built to move the mind and bodies - and hopefully a heart or two along the way. Music made to encourage tapping your toes,shakin' your feathers, and loving who ya love like you'll never let em go:-)
