Editing films, videos, and other multimedia by day, and making music under the name Ginger Root by night, Cameron Lew fronts a sound that can be described as: "Aggressive Elevator Soul”. Combining elements from contemporaries like Toro Y Moi, Vulfpeck, Jay Som, and Mocky with the influences of the days of Stax and Philly Soul, Ginger Root offers a fresh take on the ever evolving Bedroom Pop scene.
Denver's OKO TYGRA is the dark and dreamy creation of intrepid Songwriter, Joshua Novak. After suffering an accident that left him with a life threatening head injury, Novak realized something had to change. Thus, OKO TYGRA came out of the rubble drawing inspiration from their affection for Slowdive and Cocteau Twins. In 2015, they released their Glass Jaw/Plasticine 7" on EggHunt Records. With those recordings, they received media praise from the likes of Impose Magazine, My Old Kentucky Blog, IHEARTCOMIX as well as charting on numerous radio stations like KEXP in Seattle. They have played SXSW, UMS in Denver and were accepted into CMJ in New York in 2014 & 2015, making them the only band to represent Denver in the 2014 showcase.
Most recently, the band was signed with LA based label, GREY MARKET, and were accepted into Treefort Music Fest in Boise (March 22-26). They are currently working on a full length with producer, Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink, Tamaryn, Violens).
The band came to formation in 2013 after the dissolution of another project called Sclera earlier in the year. After two shows the lineup had a big change as did the path of the band. A new project began and it was dubbed: Hi-Fi Gentry. The group is now comprised of Andrew Kobil, Adam Baker, and Joe James performing on multiple instruments with a variety of original pieces and some real fun covers.
