Medic
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 AlongGet Along is the musical alias of Nicholas and Cara Yañez. Their quirky take on electronic instruments, punk rock enthusiasm, and soul music create a novel sound – one with a subtle maturity for a couple of twenty-somethings. Cara’s classically trained voice packs a punch, leading an energetic pace set by her husband’s thumping beats and synth heavy melodies. The duo has a knack for venturing into different realms of sound to reflect their feelings of love, loss, frustration, and life as aspiring artists. US Represented agrees, telling readers that “although they are classified as ‘indie’ (the band) have such a breadth of techniques that classifying them is difficult”; and The Independent calls Get Along “One of the most original bands to come out of the Front Range”. The bands authentic take on music isn’t left to the studio, however, offering an energetic and unpredictable live show. The Scene offers up this summation "The two contrasting sounds meshed together like Yin and Yang, creating a sense of serenity within an adrenaline filled background. Both Cara and Nick jumped around with such energy that the audience had no choice but to join them”. Get Along looks to share their music with the masses; which would cause a lot of jumping. Exercise is good.
