For the better part of the past year, Wildermiss has been quietly taking Denver by storm. Unassumingly serving as a supporting act playing frequent weeknight gigs, the auspicious quartet has been steadily making a name for itself with a smart brand of guitar-driven pop rock, which has plenty in common with acts like Echosmith, Metric and Florence and the Machine. Made up of three former members of Red Fox Run (guitarists Joshua Hester and Seth Beamer and drummer Caleb Thoemke), the foursome is led by the soaring vocals of Emma Cole, whose expressive voice evokes the silken strains of Ellie Goulding and Hayley Williams. The music is instantly memorable and it’s a safe bet that by the time the act finishes work on its debut recordings, which it's working on now, the outfit will be packing shows of its own as the main attraction.

The Bright Silence
Colorado born singer Kevin Johnston founded Bright Silence (which MTV's John Norris calls "Rousing, anthemic and remarkably intimate") in Brooklyn in 2010. Emerging from NYC's open-mic-singer/songwriter scene, Johnston has performed original songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live, worked with Kjartan Sveinsson (Sigur Ros) singing a 2-month-long piece of music at NYC's New Museum and performed to a sold-out Red Rocks crowd with Ian Cooke Band paying tribute to Prince. Between frequent European tours, long stays in Germany and the release of their sophomore album Time Is New (w/ guitarist Kirk Schoenherr & bassist Tim Lappin of Chet Faker aka Nick Murphy) and drummer Zach Jones (Sting, Secret Someones, A Great Big World). The new Denver chapter of Bright Silence are excited to be digging back into the Colorado music scene in support of Time Is New which Bandwagon Magazine calls “wide-eyed, optimistic, frequently lifting into pure moments of rapture”.
The Solid Ocean
The Solid Ocean is a band from Denver, Colorado that draws it's influence from many of the sounds made popular in the 80s that are resurfacing in music today. They play a unique blend of indie dance rock that is meant to get the audience moving.
The Solid Ocean became a band when Joey Lowery and Christian Garcia came together under similar interests and influence. Soon after, they added Bailey Sutton to complete the group.
The Solid Ocean is composed of:
Joey Lowery: lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Bailey Sutton: Lead guitar
Christian Garcia: drums, percussion, backup vocals
