Our friends inGreensky Bluegrass were kind enough to take some time out of an idyllic afternoon last Saturday at Planet Bluegrass to play a two song acoustic set exclusively for Listen Up Denver!,Marquee Magazine, and a few friends. We sorta tucked ourselves in along the river behind the stage, rolled tape, and them do their thing. The first song we are releasing is a great new song called “Leap Year” that the boys also played during their opening set for Yonder Mountain String Band that evening. Be on the look-out for another song to be released through this site as the band’s October shows at The Fox (on the 18th) and The Bluebird (the 19th and 20th) approach. For now, enjoy this one!
Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
