For the Love of Locals
For the Love of Locals
For The Love Of Locals was started as a platform to fortify Colorado music. Colorado musicians helping Colorado musicians showcase their talent, while giving fans, family and friends an easy, inexpensive way to support their favorite local bands.
Valienta
"Valienta (Formerly known as Racing On The Sun) out of Denver Colorado are a three piece group fronted by singer-songwriter Alfonso Cervantes. The band has been touring coast to coast in the US rapidly gaining national attention with their electric live set and powerful and catchy songs. Emerging out of the Alternative Rock genre Valienta have embraced a Pop style that one minute is dark and broody, then the next colorful and sweet. The band just finished recording their debut EP in Austin, TX with Producer Joseph Milligan (Formerly of Anberlin) and the record is set to release early 2017.
CITRA
Hailing from Denver, CO... High-energy, guitar driven grit-rock weaving its way through soulful, heartfelt melodies. Bright. Fast. Fun. Loud. CITRA.

CITRA tore into the Denver music scene in January, 2016 with their debut EP - Ocean. The EP promised a bright future for the band, released only three months after their meeting. The album rockets off with the opening track "Settle Down", and weaves it's way through an eclectic mix of melodic, at times harrowing, non-stop rock, highlighted by the band's pleadingly powerful title track, "Ocean". Armed with a care-free style the band aims to inject a bit of fun into the EDM and folk-rock dominated Denver music scene.

Following the release of their debut EP, Ocean, CITRA returned to the studio in the summer of 2016 to begin recording the follow-up single, "Air" accompanied by the B-side titled "My My Mind". Released in January of 2017, the single looked to build on the momentum the band had built over their first year together. Contrasting in style, the songs continue to illustrate that CITRA will be a hard act to paint into a stylistic corner, the two tracks representing vastly different wings of the ever-clouded indie rock genre.
Matt Rouch and the Noise Upstairs
Based out of Denver, CO, Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs are making waves in the Colorado music scene. Rouch, a self-proclaimed southpaw whiskey-loving Virginian, self-released his first full-length solo album, "The Beautiful and the Damned" in March 2016 and now his 4-piece alt-country folk group is one of Denver's fastest up and coming bands, with mentions in Music Connection Magazine, Denver Post, Marquee Magazine, Scene Magazine, and Axs.

"We all came together because we love bands like the Avett Brothers, Elephant Revival, The Decemberists, etc. so it made sense for most of us, we do have one Phish-head who loves him some jam bands, but he's also a classically-trained violinist so it works out. When I first came to Denver I was blown away by the talent here, there's so many amazing musicians, but what really drew me were the songwriters, there's a whole underground scene of phenomenal songwriters that need to be brought to light, this town isn't like a Nashville where songwriters are really appreciated and a few of us intend on changing that. The band just wants to make music for people who appreciate songwriting, melody, structure, etc. with a little twang too it, not too much, just enough, I've been called Country-Light, might need to trademark that."
The Coast Is Ours
The Coast Is Ours
This 5-member aggressive pop punk band, The Coast Is Ours, hails from Denver, Colorado. Their high energy live shows engage their mainstream appeal to fans of multiple genres by combining the sounds from classic bands like New Found Glory with today's hardcore scene.

They released their first EP, "The Lighthouse" in 2013, which was so well received that it landed them a spot on the Van's Warped Tour.

Their latest release, the full length album entitled "Near," was described as "the perfect reminder of the good ole' days in the early 2000's when I could return to my hometown, turn on the radio, and be swept away by pop-punk's domination of the airwaves," by Colorado Music Buzz. The album is available on iTunes, BandCamp, and any other form of online music distribution.
The Hollow (Acoustic)
The Hollow is a dynamic alternative-rock band with a tightly focused sound that threatens to transform the pedestrian landscape of contemporary rock ’n roll. With thoughtfully layered guitars built upon a hard-driving rhythm section, their powerful music espouses beguiling lyrics and infectious melodies that evoke modern rock icons such as Queens of the Stone Age and Muse.

The Hollow has one definitive task on their agenda: to deliver exceptional music that makes people fall in love with rock ’n roll again.
