Vermillion Road
It's almost unheard of today for a band so young to not only resonate with the hard rock sound that's been popular for so many years, but to also stand out in the very competitive Denver music scene. That's exactly what excites Vermillion Road, and has motivated them to create a new energetic modern rock sound. Filled with heavy guitar tones, driving drum beats, and soaring melodic vocals with catchy melodies and hooks, their music aims to reignite the rock scene.

Their goal is to bring this contemporary rock sound to the forefront of popular music today and to expose a whole new generation to the power of their music. With a successful EP under their belt and a debut full length album, Palaces, coming out in late May 2015, the four have set their sights high on a mission to change the music industry as we know it.

It's becoming increasingly common for rock bands to invent ways to break the mold of what a rock band should be. Through their distinct energy in their live performances and heartfelt lyrics, this dynamic group is committed to bringing the very best to the most important part of Vermillion Road - the fans. It's their desire and mission to connect with people on a visceral, emotional level, and it's this desire that drives everything Vermillion Road does. Music is an amazing gift and they feel privileged to be given an opportunity to translate the everyday struggles of life into 3-4 minute snippets of raw energy and empowerment.

The fall of 2012 found guitarist Hunter Heurich, bassist Mark Mastrangelo, and drummer Will Robison looking for a good vocalist/front man to complete their band. Their tedious search on Craigslist was getting them nowhere, then one day Hunter overheard Will singing one of their songs. At that moment, Hunter had an epiphany when he realized Will was the singer they had been looking for all along. "I always knew Will could sing but I didn't realize how good he actually was until that moment!" says Hunter. "His distinct voice and perfect pitch along with his passion and intense stage presence made it a no-brainer," he adds. They shifted their search to finding a new drummer and soon found the perfect addition to their family, Chad Pinkerman, who not only brought precision drumming but solid backing vocals which complimented Will's voice. "I guess it was meant to be," explains Will, "Chad moved to Colorado for a job and didn't bring his drum kit. We had my kit for him to use so it worked out perfectly!"

The band began playing out and within three months, they had won the Wicked Winterfest 2013 Battle of the Bands at the Gothic Theater, which was only the second show they'd played together. Since then, they've played numerous venues around Denver, including The Roxy Theater, The Oriental Theater, Casselman's, and many more. They've had radio interviews with Mile High Underground and Music Buzz Live Radio, and their music has been played on several internet radio stations as well as local stations 93.3, 94.3 and 107X.

They have been asked many times where they came up with the name for their band. Vermillion Road is an actual road just north of where they used to practice in Longmont, Colorado. This represents more than just a name for them, it's a metaphor for the journey they're currently on and they look forward to wherever this road may take them.
The New Schematics
Nashville’s The New Schematics spent their first fifteen months as a band proving that the Born Without Borders Tour was indeed the right name for their tour that spanned 97 shows in 42 cities across the US and Canada. As a band that quickly put so many shows under its belt, it is no wonder as to why they’ve gained the reputation as a live act with “the crowd control skills of preachers” (Cougar Microbes) whose “passion for their art is palpable” (Valslist).

The band officially began as a duo, with Cory Bishop (vocals, guitar) and Michael Bare (bass, vocals), who brought a rotating cast of bandmates on the road with them. A few months after they pulled him on stage for a guitar solo in New York City, Shanan Lau left the band that was opening for The New Schematics in order to join Cory and Michael as a full-time third member.

They now usher in 2017 with the title track from their sophomore EP, Your Year. The sprawling rock’n’roll soundscape coupled with the clear-cut lyrical optimism of the lead single falls right in-line with their debut that already carried “the markings of a seasoned classic,” (Will Hodge, Noisetrade).
Treehouse Sanctum
Treehouse Sanctum is an Americana / Folk-Rock band based in Denver, Colorado. Their sophomore album, ​Vivere​, released May 5, 2017,​ was co-produced by Grammy-nominated engineer Nick Sullivan and mastered by Grammy award winner Jonathan Russell in Nashville, Tennessee. ​Treehouse Sanctum focuses on intelligent, emotive lyrics covering heroism, love, hope and faith; coupling that with driving, groove filled rhythms and intricately layered, nuanced instrumentation, the band creates a lush and dynamic sound that wins over audiences each time they play.
