Very few rock bands are capable of wowing people right out of the gate. It usually starts with a half recorded demo here, another half recorded demo there, empty bars, empty promises and then you finally get to the good stuff.

In February 2011, four young men who were tired of such a pattern gathered in an empty church to discuss their dreams, aspirations and what they were going to do about it. The idea was to create the music they've always wanted, spend all the money they had and make the best music they've ever been apart of.

The group enlisted producer Michael Rossback to help them craft the sounds that they were striving for and to help the songs come to life. "The whole thing was a big experiment. None of us had worked with a producer before and the biggest thing was, the band had yet to even play music together in a room." says Aaron Wagner, the groups frontman, "when we got to Rossback we had only laid ideas down piece by piece in a computer, never anything more. Rossback would then make us play everything as a live band when we arrived at his house and that's when things came to life. There was a chemistry and sense of trust between us all."

August rolled around and after months of working, Medic had finished their first EP. Five songs that had stolen the very breath away from all who would hear and with a developed sound that felt like they had been around for 10 years, the band started to play around the Denver area with the intent to stun the audience. They are succeeding. Bassist Drew Barnard explains: "We went in to this just wanting to make music with hope. Music that made people feel like they were understood and the shows feel like that; like we are reaching an understanding between us and the audience that hope is alive and well."

"In the midst of the trials that we go through these days, I think we are just tired of the same old. Anyone can make art these days. It's so accessible to make and promote and yet most of it is so negative. It was wearing on us. Medic is about something new, we are about creating a community of thinkers, dreamers and believers that aim for something positive. This world will continue to fall apart if we keep talking about how it's falling apart. But what if we dare to be the people to figure out ways to put things back together? That's our platform. That maybe our music can be apart of someone’s healing process and spread from there." says Aaron.

So maybe it is time for something new. New songs to sing, new dreams to dream. Maybe Medic is formed out of four guys who might be what we call idealists. But maybe it's time for us to leave the cynicism behind and begin to embrace hope.

Get Along
Get AlongMusic isn’t scientific, it’s random. That’s what Get Along believes anyway. With no format to success and no rules, the duo finds itself an unpredictable act. In an era where two-piece bands are flourishing, Get Along uses a blend of raw instruments and digital synthesizers to create a full, inventive sound. Everything is played live on stage; because Cara Summer and Nicholas James believe that they should give their audience all of themselves. No prerecorded loops or playbacks. It’s about that night, at that time. And every show is different because of this.
The band mates are two cottage ridden kids, sporting old souls and vintage gear. They play new music. There are teen jumping electric pop songs, reverb drenched punk anthems, and stripped down acoustic soul ballads. Sometimes, they admit, it doesn’t all add up. The Indie duo by no means is a band looking to jump or create new genres; they just look to be themselves. Their 2012 release ‘We Lit These Torches to See in the Dark EP’ was presented to the world live from radio broadcast on March 24th. It was officially posted for sale on April 7th. The EP shows the dark side of the duo, as they mull over unrealistic careers, a youthful engagement, and their generations impact on the new American culture. The raw, home recorded product, has elements of new wave, punk, electronic, rock n’ roll and folk.
They won’t make you dance. They won’t make you vote for him or her. They won’t make you dress a certain way or say a certain thing. There is no black and white. There are no gimmicks or rehearsed speeches. There are two adolescents exploring their new lives through distorted guitar riffs, bass drum pulsing beats, and the performing arts. Get Along can only hope that you listen to their music, and have a strong opinion of it.
