Foxfeather Denver Cd Release Show W/ Doves & Wolves says
Mark your calendars for the official release of Foxfeather's first full length album. Joined by Devner's own, Doves and Wolves, this show is one not to be missed!


Foxfeather is a sultry alt-americana band founded in Boulder, CO in 2013. Beginning with a lyrical base, and bolstered by strong blues-rock instrumentals, Foxfeather’s unique sound captivates their audience. The band consists of Carly Ricks Smith (lead vocals), Laura Paige Stratton (acoustic/electric guitars, keys, vocals), Patrick Coleman (upright/electric bass, violin), Ben Batchelor (drums and percussion), and Ian Hendrick (electric guitar). Foxfeather is a local staple in the Colorado Front Range, and also tours nationally. The band released their EP, Foul Moon, in 2014. In response to this release The Marquee stated that “the group is overflowing with talent” and “Carly Ricks Smith has a spectacular voice which lies somewhere between the folky soprano of a young Joni Mitchell and the jazz-heavy range of Lake Street Dive’s Rachel Price. It’s powerful as well as delicate.” Andy Eppler of The Prairie Scholars said “it’s sexy. It’s original. These women have crafted something very special and instantly likeable on this album.” The BoulderBeat reviewed Patrick Coleman’s presence on bass as “one of the biggest treats of their performance,” with a “jazzy undertone that rightfully demanded its own attention.” The band is set to release their first full-length, self-titled album, paired with a Colorado release tour in October of 2016

Doves & Wolves started as a writing project between friends in the spring of 2013. Adam Anglin, who works for a local church as a music director, started collaborating with Dustin Peterson (drums), Ryan Day (guitar) and Micah Schmiedeskamp (bass). All of whom he had played music with in various projects since 2010. With backgrounds in metal, experimental post-rock, jazz, blues, folk, and country trying to land on a solidified musical direction became a process of exploration that lasted for almost 2 years. Adam played in Denver band, Brothers O’Hair, from 2009-2011 and took some time off to focus his creative efforts on the local church before writing songs for this, his latest project. They added their final member, Shawn Sandler formerly of The Denver Gentlemen, in the fall of 2014 as they headed into a studio to record their first EP. Working with some friends at a secluded studio in Evergreen, CO they started etching out the songs that would become their debut recording. Finding influence and inspiration in almost every genre has led them to a sound that covers a vast array of sonic landscapes but finds them most comfortably in the always easy-to-nail-down alt-country/dad rock/psych genre-ish.
