Shawn James and the Shapeshifters
Shawn James & The Shapeshifters are a 5 piece rock band from Fayetteville, Arkansas. At first glimpse, you might confuse them with a bluegrass or metal band. Influenced by every type of music, and growing up in several heavy and folky bands, the sound is not what you would expect. With a different vibe for every ep put out so far, they truly utilize the phrase "shapeshifters".

The new album, "The Gospel According to Shawn James and the Shapeshifters" is the hardest hitting record yet. For lack of any term whatsoever, the record could be described simply as "rock and roar". At times, it evokes both Son House and SunO)))), with haunting fiddle and plucking banjo amidst swampy, fuzz driven slide guitars. Some parts are like a fog rising from a cave, some crashing like a thunderstorm.

If you happen to catch them live, you will be surprised. The band is overflowing with passion, playing as though it's their last chance to leave a mark on this world. It is an intense purging of sorts.
One Flew West
Formed in the summer of 2010, One Flew West delivers a live show that hits you in the face with the force equivalent to a kick from John Claude Van Damme. Blending the sounds of rock and roll with folk and pop, the band is a force to be reckoned with. OFW was a Top 3 Finalist in Channel 93.3's Hometown for the Holidays 2014, with their single entitled "Kind of Love". In the spring of 2015, they also performed at Channel 93.3's Keggs & Eggs 10 Year Anniversary. They band won a Westword Music Award under the Folk category in 2015.

One Flew West has performed with many notable acts, including: The Dirty Heads, 3OH!3, The Devil Makes Three, Brick+Mortar, Joywave, The Unlikely Candidates, Saints of Valory, Barcelona, and the Spill Canvas.

In addition, One Flew West has performed at and headlined Colorado's most popular concert venues including the Fox Theatre, The Aggie Theatre, The Marquis Theater, The Summit Music Hall, The Larimer Lounge, The Belly Up, and the Gothic Theatre.
