And finally, my last local artist for today is Elevated Sickness!  “Elevated Sickness formed in 2017 in Colorado springs by guitarist/vocalist Josh berends bassist/vocalist Alex Gettings and Drummer Johnny Martinez. The band features an alternative hard rock sound with elements of punk, funk and reggae fused together in one package with a focus on upbeat energy and catchy hooks. They have shared the stage with some notable national acts such as Cky, Saving Abel, Powerman 5000, Sponge, Otherwise and have upcoming dates with Adeletas Way Smile Empty Souland Tantric. Elevated Sickness is releasing their debut LP next month on all major platforms as well as a physical release on CD.”  These guys didn’t have a music video for their song “Natural One” but you can check them out on socials!

My next local artist is a group called the Trujillo Company!  “Rock isn’t dead – it’s just been sleeping; and The Trujillo Company is a powder keg ready to awaken the sleeping giant. We’ve garnered a reputation for their energetic live shows, bluesy riffs, and massive hooks, earning a nomination for Best Rock Band in the 2019 Westword Music Awards Poll. We’re from Denver, but we have built a following in Colorado Springs after opening for BONES UK at the Black Sheep last November.”  Here’s the Trujillo Company with “Follow The Leader”!

Today we’re playing local artists in the running for the Next Great Colorado Band all day!  My first artist, Mason Wheatley, is a Colorado songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Working from his bedroom “studio”, Mason blends melodic acoustic guitar with lush vocal harmonies and 60s-inspired psychedelia. Mason is hesitant to explain his music however, and instead prefers you listen and make up your own mind.  Here’s Mason Wheatley with “Son”! 07/23/20 These guys will always be my favorite!  Here’s the latest from the Front Bottoms “Montgomery Forever” for your Solid @ 7 tonight! 07/22/20 I’m loving the new NoMBE!  Here’s “Weirdo” for your Solid @ 7 tonight! 07/21/20 Happy (late) birthday to Josh from Badflower!  Here’s their new one “30” tonight for the Solid @ 7! 07/20/20 I haven’t been able to stop listening to HUNNY’s debut album Yes.
