The band takes inspiration from the likes ofCreedence Clearwater Revival,Willie Nelson,the Everly Brothers,Guy Clark, andJohn Prine. Their latest album, Utah, was recorded to tape in a log cabin in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah and released in 2014.

The Bud Light Hi-Fi concert series will feature five free concerts throughout the ski and snowboard season on key weekends. Concerts are held in unique locations around Aspen Snowmass including on-hill stages and downtown streets.
