Always Moving: Graham Good & The Painters Bring the Optimism

“Keep believing in yourself. Keep believing in your dreams and the value you bring to the world,” Graham Good tells BandWagon. Good is the frontman of the Northern Colorado pop folk-rock outfit Graham Good & The Painters, and he delivers that statement with the well known blanket optimism he has towards life. This optimism has become a staple in his music and he sees spreading that positivity a part of his musical journey. “Just know there’s so much good you have to offer every second of the day,” Good says. “To spend that time thinking you’re not good enough, you’re underdelivering on what you’re capable of providing.”

Birth of The Band: Delvon Lamarr Steps Into the Spotlight with DLO3.

“When you believe in something, you don’t have to sell it,” Delvon Lamarr tells BandWagon.

The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio were playing festivals before they had recordings and the way Lamarr shreds across the keys and seamlessly grooves the organ pedals with his feet, you’d think he had been doing this his whole life. But he didn’t even touch an organ until his early 20s.

And with guitarist Jimmy James and drummer Dan Weiss on board, Lamarr says “the combination felt unique and connected. No one person makes the band, but what puts it in perspective is all of us.”

If You Build It: That 1 Guy on Making an Instrument and Setting Songs Free

Mike Silverman – AKA That 1 Guy – knew what it would take to make it. Only his band wasn’t willing to live that hard life. So he did it himself.

“I was working so hard to fill this cosmic space,” Silverman said of the bass, “and I was playing on this thing that wasn’t meant to do that.” So he built an instrument that would help him create a big sound.

“It was very hard,” he said. “Some instrument builders study their whole lives to do this.”

The Infamous LP hits Edge Fest with Irreverent, Vulnerable Pop

“I don’t think they could deal with what I looked like and what I sounded like,” LP tells BandWagon.

“Jay-Z was there and L.A. Reid and everybody. They made me perform three or four songs in completely disparate directions. I was one of the artists dropped at the end of the session.”

Fourteen years later, LP is at the height of her career as an international pop star. She has billions of streams to her name and devout fans from Italy to Poland, Mexico and all over the world.

“It went from ‘who do you think you are?’ to ‘who are you?’,” she said.

On August 28, LP brings her irreverent, vulnerable, one-of-a-kind pop to Edge Fest; a free show in Cheyenne’s West Edge District with special guest Tai Verdes.

Roll Over Reverend: Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band clings to nostalgia for Hard Times

The Reverend Peyton always had an appetite for nostalgia – everything from the traditional country blues that influenced his guitar picking, to the vintage 1950’s outfits he and his wife Breezy wear on stage. Those touches complement their rowdy rockabilly and southern roots sound, so the Rev decided to take it all the way on his new album. He recorded it using the best technology available in the 1950’s. That meant analog. If you don’t know what that means, go ask your grandfather or any recording engineer worth their weight in two inch tape.

105.5 Colorado Sound Top Picks

Lady Denim: Colorado Sound Spotlight Artist, September 2021

“We were desperately trying to stay optimistic,” Lady Denim’s lead vocalist Nick Lundeen tells BandWagon, “which – to be honest, was a lot easier said than done.”

On September 10, Fort Collins indie-pop quartet Lady Denim release “Loosely Held Hands” with plans to rock the block at Downtown Greeley’s Block Party festival that night in celebration of the EP’s release.

“Loosely Held Hands is about holding on to something during tough circumstances,” Lundeen says. “We became a lot more dependent on one another and the songwriting became more fluid.”

Colorado Sound Spotlight Artist: The Burroughs

Starting now, 105.5 The Colorado Sound and BandWagon will bring you a Colorado Spotlight Artist of the Month! We couldn’t imagine a first choice better for that late summer festival season than Greeley’s hometown heroes The Burroughs, who’s single, “Baby Get Down” dropped late last month. The accompanying, full-scale music video is set for an August 13th premiere, and the band is set to play several shows this month and next!
