“If you are looking to be blown away by raw talent, then look no further than Griffin House.” —American Songwriter

 

Griffin House’s new record “Stories for a Rainy Day” is a collection of 9 songs written during the pandemic and recorded in just 3 days, and is being described as his most happy and upbeat yet.  The opening track “The Mississippi Hippie” was originally written for a feature in Esquire magazine called “Somewhere in Mississippi” and was rediscovered and resurrected for for “Stories for a Rainy Day.”  The album was recorded by Tim Pannella using a stripped down trio set up with Jersey based musicians Eric Novod on drums, Mark Masefield on keys, and House on guitars and vocals.  With minimal production and the band playing together as opposed to overdubbing, the songs have a space to be more playful, free and alive.

A concept record, with each song telling a story, an idea inspired from one of House’s favorite childhood albums “Ten Summoner’s Tales,” the final tale features the hilarious character “Guido” is the only song on the album that was recorded live in concert.

“Stories for a Rainy Day” was released on Valentine’s Day 2022 and features the artwork of Scottsdale based painter Priscilla Nelson.

Bonnie and Taylor Sims:

Platinum recording artists Bonnie & Taylor are one of Colorado’s most powerful and dynamic musical duos. From the soul shaking harmonies and masterful songwriting to the endearing onstage moments, Bonnie & Taylor have captivated audiences all across the world. From their most recent global success I See Red tallying over 150 million streams and a deal with Columbia Records to playing countless live shows and festivals around CO and the Western US; tours to Germany, Canada and Sweden; multiple studio albums; exciting collaborations with other area musicians and hundreds of students through summer camps and private lessons Bonnie & Taylor have established themselves as a potent creative force of the vibrant Colorado music scene.

Sturtz:

Sturtz’s music stands out for its distinctive, soothing instrumental and vocal harmonies. The acoustic quartet – Andrew Sturtz [vocals, guitar], Jim Herlihy [banjo], Courtlyn Carpenter [cello], and Will Kuepper [bass]- falls somewhere at the intersection of folk and soul, with lead singer Andrew Sturtz’s melodic vocals soaring over the lower string instrumentals. Sturtz is based in Boulder, CO, and has toured across the U.S. opening for groups like the Eli Young Band, Trout Steak Revival, Lillie Mae, and Smooth Hound Smith. NPR’s All Songs Considered described the band as “a reassuring breath of fresh air that pulls me back to simpler times” in their April 2020 blog. Sturtz released their debut album You’ve Done this Before in August 2021, and now they are hard at work touring on this album and writing songs for their next album. When the members of Sturtz aren’t playing music, you’ll probably find them milling flour, farming, laying in a creek, or eating native foliage.
