Doors: 7:30

Showtime: 8:00


Covenhoven is internationally recognized indie artist Joel Van Horne, a multi-instrumental singer-songwriter whose rich harmonies, reedy baritone, and commanding falsetto have found a home with critics and fans since 2013.

Through 4 full-length albums and 2 EPs Covenhoven has forged a signature style; layered acoustic arrangements that roll with momentum into orchestral peaks, accompanied by lyrics that contrast hard-won wisdom with the inherent hope of the natural world—from Big Sur to his native Colorado.

Covenhoven’s latest album, IV (released in October 2021), is his most collaborative and rock-forward to date—taking a producing partner in Ben Wysocki of the Fray, who also performs on the album. IV features over a dozen musicians including Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov, Luke Mossman of Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, and Bluebook’s Julie Davis.

Bandwagon magazine writes that in IV, Covenhoven reaches “into chamber pop territory, and revealing a wider vocal range…sheltered by a gorgeous, rich string and piano accompaniment, whisks us above the campfire folk…”

Covenhoven’s live performances capture the spirit of his recordings—whether it’s conjuring cascading loops in his solo shows or backed by a full band—Covenhoven’s sound fills the breadth of outdoor spaces, auditoriums, and club stages.

Regularly touring the United States and Canada, Covenhoven has shared the stage with Grammy winners and nominees S.Carey (Bon Iver), Jose Gonzalez, Gregory Alan Isakov, John Paul White (Civil Wars), and Reed Foehl. Covenhoven has also performed with genre-bending artists Lord Huron, Leif Vollebekk, Elephant Revival, Joshua James, Blind Pilot, Esme Patterson, John Craigie, Daniel Rodriguez (Elephant Revival), Shook Twins, Rainbow Girls, Courtney Marie Andrews, Joan Shelley and host of others.

Covenhoven songs have been streamed over 3 million times and reached over 14 million people through television shows including: 13 Reasons Why, Nashville, Teen Wolf, Home Before Dark, Flaked, Kevin Probably Saves the World, and Private Eyes—Canada’s most-watched show for 5 years.

Andreas DeValera

Andreas DeValera is an indie singer/songwriter based in Evergreen, Colorado. Having studied in the songwriting department at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachussetts, DeValera is a lover of all things song. With influences such as Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Gregory Alan Isakov, Bob Dylan, and Leonard Cohen, he appreciates great songwriting – and it shows. His devotion to his craft, both musically and lyrically, creates a listening experience that is both old and new – songs that utilize poetic imagery to express emotion and tell a story while feeling fresh, but also like long-lost friends. Most recently, DeValera has toured Colorado with The Riverside, a world-renowned folk group based in Santa Barbara, California.

His new album, Faulty Expectation, was released in November 2022. The album features 12 songs backed by a group of world-class musicians, including Nick Milo (Joe Cocker, Tower of Power) and Jeb Bows (Gregory Alan Isakov). The album has been well received – gaining almost 200,000 streams since release and radio play worldwide.
