My Name is Aaron Kelly (Eagle Vail)

The shadow cast by the city of big shoulders is a shade where a certain imagination gets ignited. Perhaps it’s all the train tracks that harken back to when Chicago was truly freight handler to the nation, sending catalog dreams speeding over steel to far off corners of the country.

Aaron Kelly grew up thinking big and making plans, and wondering where those trains were going to. Falling under the influence of Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, and Jack Kerouac, his songs aren’t too dissimilar from those crates and packages of the last century. They carry the promise that something good is coming. These are songs meant to ease a burden and bring a smile, carefully crafted and made to last.

Aaron has been featured by American Songwriter Magazine, and released Barefoot and Bottomed Out, his first solo album, in 2016, after zig-zagging across the country for the last 7 years with his band, Overman.

Klone Manor (Vail Village)

Brandon Hagen and Chris Jones each bring a burning passion for songcraft and rock and roll, and it shows through in both intimate acoustic and full-bore venue settings. Their vocal harmonies and passionate guitar work illuminate their influences - The Band, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Peter Gabriel, John Mayer, and more. 

Hagen is a 6-year resident of Boulder, Colorado, with family ties to the area going back to the 1950s when his grandfather (and current roommate), Walter, moved to the city with his grandmother, Irma. The state has been a haven of creative output for Hagen, seeing the release of two solo EPs, performances on 6 albums to date, and playing/touring with 6 different bands in those years. This new duo with Jones shows exceptional promise as a project that was a long time coming, and a thrill to see come to fruition. 

Jones, a Colorado native, recently replanted himself in his home soil after several years in Los Angeles. There he had been pursuing success with the affable and energetic indie folk rock band, Bones Muhroni. The band saw the release of several records with Jones sharing vocal, guitar, and songwriting duties. When he eventually heard the call to return to the mountains, the call to Hagen was made that a new acoustic duo was immanent. 

The story of Klone Manor goes further back than the lives of either member. The story continues to be told in song and in person. Find out more at one of our next shows.

Fox Feather (Eagle Vail)

Foxfeather is a sultry, alt-americana band founded in 2013 in Boulder, CO . Beginning with a lyrical base, and bolstered by strong blues-rock instrumentals, Foxfeather’s unique sound captivates their audience. The band consists of Carly Ricks Smith (lead vocals), Laura Paige Stratton (acoustic/electric guitars, keys, vocals), Patrick Coleman (upright/electric bass, violin), Ben Batchelor (drums and percussion), and Ian Hendrick (electric guitar). Foxfeather is a local staple in the Colorado Front Range, and also tours nationally. The band released their EP, Foul Moon, in 2014. In response to this release The Marquee stated that “the group is overflowing with talent” and “Carly Ricks Smith has a spectacular voice which lies somewhere between the folky soprano of a young Joni Mitchell and the jazz-heavy range of Lake Street Dive’s Rachel Price. It’s powerful as well as delicate.” Andy Eppler of The Prairie Scholars said “it’s sexy. It’s original," they "have crafted something very special and instantly like-able on this album.” The BoulderBeat reviewed Patrick Coleman’s presence on bass as “one of the biggest treats of their performance,” with a “jazzy undertone that rightfully demanded its own attention.” The band is set to release their first full-length, self-titled album, paired with a Colorado release tour in October of 2016.
