The Seers

640 675 City Star Brewing

The Seers, an experimental folk-rock duo from Fort Collins, CO, have transformed their shared passion for great songs into a walking, talking, modern-day jukebox of musical versatility. With a “stunning repertoire” of over 700 covers and 100 originals spanning from alternative rock to Americana country, the Seers deliver sing-along performances that bring people closer together.

As a duo, three-piece, four-piece, and five-piece band, Seers perform at regional festivals (SXSW 2015 Colorado Music Showcase), weddings (in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado), private events, restaurants, bars, breweries, memorials, markets, and more. With over fifteen years of collaboration, it easy to see why they’re in high regional demand: they love to play.

As prolific songwriters and aspiring recording artists, Collins and Waters have been recording and releasing albums as The Seers since 2010. Their first was an underground, stream-of-consciousness EP titled “Universal Tree.” Two eclectic rock albums followed: “The Seers” (2013) and “Cellophane Eyes” (2014). In 2016, in collaboration with Danny Kalb (Beck, Ben Harper, and Foster the People), The Seers released the indie folk EP “Signals” to critical acclaim. Their fourth release, the full-length “Better Days” is out May 13th, 2017

John McKay

John McKay has been playing music since he was in High School. He always strived to create his own music as opposed to copying his favorite musicians. His tastes for such bands as Little Feat, Taj Mahal, the Beatles, Stones, Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Led Zepplin, to songwriters like Neil Young, Steve Earl, Bob Marley, Lyle Lovitt and Bob Dylan have been cooked up like a rock n’ roll soup called John McKay music. John McKay’s talents have landed him gigs all across the country from The Bitter End in New York, Eddie’s Attic in Decataur Georgia, The Carollton in New Orleans, Fox Theater and Boulder Theater in Colorado, The Abbey in Chicago along with numerous venues in between in most states in the US.

Billy Shaddox

640 675 City Star Brewing

From the moment the title track of Billy Shaddox’s I Melt, I Howl kicks in to open this album, you get that twinge of excitement that this is going to be good. A breezy, warm track that immediately turns your head – a mix of pop melody, clean guitars, crisp production and immensely pleasing vocals. This Colorado songwriter has the ability of melding both pure roots-y Americana and a skilled manner in pop writing.

If the joyfulness of the title song wasn’t enough (which it isn’t), “My Hands Don’t Lie” is an absolute pop gem – catchy melody, upbeat – all the right elements. “Feels Like Home” is the masterful Americana Shaddox has begun to build his reputation around – banjo runs, strident rhythm, warmly undertoned acoustic guitar and subtle harmonies; “Fireflies” is an acoustic gem – the effects on the vocals heighten the song’s emotional width and “Story Of You And I” is as sweet and embracing as a love song can be.

Greg Schochet and Katie Glassman

640 675 City Star Brewing

Katie Glassman’s love affair with the fiddle began at the tender age of nine. Inspired by old-time Texas music, she began playing by ear, and was soon winning numerous honors throughout the West. In 1998, she captured the National Junior Fiddle Championship in Weiser, Idaho, and two years later the National Young Adult Fiddle Championship. She is a three- time top five finalist in the National Grand Champion Division and in 2011, she won the National Western Stock Show Championship. 2013 was Katie’s biggest year yet for competing, as she took top honors in two of the country’s most prestigious contests: Walnut Valley, in Winfield, Kansas, and Rockygrass in Lyons, CO.

But Katie is no one trick pony when it comes to fiddling. She studied classical and jazz violin at the University of Colorado in Boulder, graduating with a BA in music performance and a certificate in jazz studies. In 2007 she became only the second American to attend the Centre Musique Didier Lockwood in France, the world’s foremost jazz violin school.

Greg Schochet is a full-time performer, teacher and producer in Boulder, Colorado. Equally adept on guitar and mandolin, he is fluent in number of acoustic and electric styles, including bluegrass, swing, and country.

A veteran of many touring and recording bands, his love of music and traveling has brought him to some of the most acclaimed venues in the country, including A Prairie Home Companion, Red Rocks, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, as well as the Rainforest World Music Festival in Malaysia.

Born and raised in the suburbs of New York city, Greg’s musical youth was framed by his father’s record collection and FM radio of the 70s and 80s. Combined with a deep love for all things traditional, twangy and old-timey, Greg’s musical sensibilities are wide-ranging and versatile.

He is an integral part of Colorado’s thriving roots music scene, and is a sought after instructor, session player, producer and collaborator.
