The projects I’m involved in all leave room for people to put their personal touch on things. What I express might change depending on the project’s conditions and the song but the freedom of expression is always there. There’s a visceral connection to different dynamic/intensity levels that I enjoy.
There wasn’t anything special in regards to art or atmosphere but entering the grounds with the sound of Ty Dolla $ign playing Psycho somewhere in the distance and the warmth Colorado September sun caused the fear to leave my chest. All I could think about all the music I was going to see that weekend, and especially for Kendrick Lamar that night.
An arresting confluence of soaring melodies, lush harmonies, and driving indie rock, the ep is the band’s most collaborative work yet, bearing the distinctive writing influence and unique sonic sensibilities of all four members (lead singer/guitarist Max Rainer, bassist/vocalist Colton Dearing, guitarist/vocalist Tyler Wimpee, and drummer Justin Kila). recorded with production mastermind Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), ‘favors’ marks the dawn of a new era for Tulsa rockers Wilderado, as their already-epic sound pushes into more nuanced and mature territory than ever before.
Roger Sellers, also known by his stage name Bayonne, is an American minimalist composer and electronic musician based in Austin, Texas.

We were previously writing specifically to briefs for TV and film pitches. The writing change allowed us to explore more ideas outside of our own personal boxes. It was something more than what came natural to us on our personal projects. Zach and I finished writing the record last July and realized we had something pretty cool on our hands.
Discovery is something we focus on, and to cultivate the next Jazz generation for festival goers. This is very important to the future of the festival. If he can motivate fans of all ages, to come to Telluride to see new bands, like Corey Henry and others, than that is a win all around. We really want something there for everyone.
The evolution of Larkin Poe from 2010 to 2018 has been constant, radical, and breathtaking. It has taken us years of seeking to finally uncover the musical path upon which we currently tread. Music is a journey and it means different things to each and everyone one of us at the different stages of our lives. We’re hugely grateful to be where we are right now, making the music we’re making.
But if there was one thing I could go back and tell myself, it would be to just take things in stride and not let myself get too worked up about things that can happen to you in this ever-changing thing they call the music business. I’ve been lucky to have a lot of guidance along the way so far. But I’ve also had to make some pretty big decisions on my own, some for better, some for worse. But it’s definitely a learning experience.
Finding new talent is the most rewarding. We get suggestions from our fanbase, and we listen. Tyler Childers and Larkin Po are going to blow everyone away this year. We Had them when: The Lumineers. They have really blown up since 2012, and they were a lot of fun to have.
