Birch Street has roots not unlike most bands: a few high school friends, a few Craigslist ads, a referral or two…but the band maintains that it is not how they came together, but what they’ve done and continue to do together that matters. In just over 2 years, the band has gone from opening local showcases to National touring and headlining some of their hometown of Denver’s best venues, most notably selling out AEG Live’s Bluebird Theater. These successes have led the band to share the stage in Colorado with such acts as Charlie Daniels’ Band, J Roddy Walston & The Business, The Delta Saints, JB & The Moonshine Band, Cody Jinks, and Zach Deptuty: a diverse group of successful acts that demonstrates Birch Street’s universal appeal.
In early 2015, Birch Street entered the studio to record what would be their most ambitious undertaking yet: a 5-song EP with an additional single to showcase the band’s maturation since their last recording. With a projected release for early 2016, Birch Street has their sights on improving upon their already impressive 2015 tour schedule (projected 125 shows) with Nationwide touring to support the release.
Mostly stemming from roots in the blues, they have crossed many different genres and styles. Josh starting writing songs after the passing of his father in 2011. He wrote 40+ songs in a garage in the mountains of Colorado, came out of his reclusive state and formed Ashen Embers. After they put out an album, two members left to travel longterm and Josh developed serious medical issues that have not ceased but have inspired many songs.
After calling the band quits, Josh began to play solo. He then joined back with Cameron Wyman from Ashen Embers on bass. Cameron's friends from jazz school began jumping on board with the band like Zach Holcomb, a local coffee roaster and freelance jazz pianist. Then they had chosen a drummer from school, Tate Ignelzi. Ignelzi has been involved in several projects including : Drumming/producing with John Runnels, Signel-Z, Lily Fangz, and D-stylz. The band quickly started playing shows after the four first heard Josh's tunes in late 2013. Then, they added Eric Estrada on trumpet and Kyle Videtzky playing the saxophones.
Tate, Cameron and Josh live in a shanty ramblin' house ("The Bloodswamp") in downtown Denver that is scheduled to soon be demolished. They put on shows in the backyard where they built a crumbling, wooden stage next to graffiti'd walls, an abandoned house and a strangers boat. They have noise complaints to prove it.
With their new studio album coming out in the late spring, The Guestlist is pushing boundaries of the group's sound. They have partnered with multiple different names in Denver's rapidly expanding music scene (soon to be disclosed), and are trying to spread the passion they feel about life, music, class, as well as politics across the rocky, white and purple mountains and beyond.
