Iron Horse
Iron Horse
Through the years and after involvement with several groups, the present band was born as a result of the participation of Tony Robertson, Vance Henry and Ricky Rogers in the Jake Landers Band. In January 2003, Anthony was asked to fill an opening for a banjo player and the present Iron Horse configuration evolved. Iron Horse creates much of its own music, with an innate ability for cross-genre arrangements. Iron Horse has three self-produced albums, containing previously un-released compositions, and Iron Horse-composed originals.

Iron Horse was approached in January 2003 by Los Angeles-based CMH Records to record a tribute album to the heavy metal band, Metallica, which was released in October 2003. Iron Horse has recorded twelve projects for CMH Records. Tributes to Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Ozzy Osbourn, Modest Mouse, The Shins, Guns & Roses, The Goo Goo Dolls, Hank Williams, Black label Society as well as others.

The skill and ability of Iron Horse to transpose metal to bluegrass while maintaining the identity of the originals is exceptional. The versatility of Iron Horse is demonstrated by the more traditional flavor of their first CD, “Ridin’ Out the Storm”. This versatility enables Iron Horse to perform such standards as “Rocky Top” and “Man of Constant Sorrow” with little effort, while entertaining “metal-heads” with the familiarity of the compositions of metal and pop icons – all on the same stage
Treehouse Sanctum
Treehouse Sanctum
Treehouse Sanctum is an Americana / Folk-Rock band based in Denver, Colorado. Their sophomore album, ​Vivere​, released May 5, 2017,​ was co-produced by Grammy-nominated engineer Nick Sullivan and mastered by Grammy award winner Jonathan Russell in Nashville, Tennessee. ​Treehouse Sanctum focuses on intelligent, emotive lyrics covering heroism, love, hope and faith; coupling that with driving, groove filled rhythms and intricately layered, nuanced instrumentation, the band creates a lush and dynamic sound that wins over audiences each time they play.

“...a symbolic sanctuary within which creativity is allowed to flow freely” - ​Paste Magazine

“...dynamic music, like some sort of Americana orchestra” -​ Denver Post

The two founding members and primary songwriters of Treehouse Sanctum are Sam Rymer (vocals, guitar) and Danya Lynn Uptegrove (vocals, keys). Formed in 2011 after a house jam session, the band expanded in 2013 to include Andrew Horwath (drums, percussion, keys). Shortly thereafter, Treehouse Sanctum went on to release their debut album, ​Shake the Shadow​, in 2014. After that release, the band expanded to include Jeremy Gleason (lead guitar), Dewayne Rymer (trumpet, keys) & Ben Slaughter (bass); making Treehouse Sanctum a dynamic and polished 6 piece band that delivers a lush live performance that hits listens right in the “sweet spot.”

“Together the band creates a compassionate and warm sound — the way folk music, to us, is supposed to.” - ​303 Magazine

“...wave-like harmonies, a mariachi-esque interlude...and dreamy, floating melodies throughout, this track is an exciting peek into the Denver six-piece’s upcoming record, Vivere.” (review of lead single, Chacala) - ​BolderBeat

Having performed with Mumford and Sons, The Flaming Lips, Jenny Lewis, Dawes, Miner, Dustbowl Revival, Whiskey Shivers and so many others; Treehouse Sanctum is looking forward to touring their new album, ​Vivere,​ and the opportunity to take their music to a much broader audience. For fans of: Needtobreathe, Mumford & Sons, Lake Street Dive, The Lumineers, Lord Huron, Drive By Truckers, Brandi Carlile, Of Monsters & Men.
