Troy Owens
Born from the fire of water (hot water - really hot water), and encrusted in jewels stolen from a bedazzled button making machine, this shredder of more than cheese, Troy Owens, is really such a fantastic player of our time. Extended beyond the hype of what people become and how we bull crap the story, Troy is a joyous and spectacular edition to our generation both as a human and a musician. Carrying himself well within his musicians youth, we, as listeners, can get lost in the abundance of space that he has to grow into and what great character of sound we might, as listeners, begin to anticipate. Put a big, giant, and even enormous wrench on your emotions, put them in the Troy Owens hug machine, and watch the sushi grade fingers fly.


Ben McKee
Inspired by his upbringing in the Appalachian foothills outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the music of singer-songwriter Ben McKee bears the influence of the east coast’s musical diversity blended with the rich traditional vibrations of America’s plains.

After playing in several groups throughout his career, most recently the Billings, Montana-based band Mister Afternoon, the methodology of Ben’s songwriting and performing turned to an approach of intimacy and storytelling. His themes explore human nature through wit and poetry, empowered by a spirited imagination, and expressed with unconditional sincerity.

Cruising the Rocky Mountain region in pursuit of new audiences, Ben is now in the process of recording his debut EP through Smiling Dog Records. Stay in touch for upcoming releases and live music dates.
