Acoustic rock artist, Inda Eaton received nationwide critical acclaim for her innovative songwriting – often compared to a fusion of John Mellencamp and
Melissa Etheridge. Inda and her band have opened for names such as Hootie and the Blowfish, LeAnn Rimes, Smashmouth, Chicago and John Hiatt.
Performing original Americana roots rock material at the Nic Backyard, Inda will debut new material and music from her highly acclaimed album, ‘Go West’. FMI: www.indaeaton.com
It’s been five years since a chance meeting at a Laramie, WY open mic spurred the creation of The Patti Fiasco. With proud Wyoming roots now planted in the fertile musical soil of Fort Collins, CO, the Patti Fiasco is riding the release of their regionally acclaimed sophomore album, Small Town Lights. Known for their electric and eclectic live show, fiercely original songwriting, and unique rock instrumentation (electric dobro), the Patti Fiasco toured nationally in the summer of 2014 in support of Small Town Lights.
Selected by Colorado music powerhouse, SpokesBUZZ, to represent the best of Northern Colorado at SXSW, the Patti Fiasco has shared Colorado’s biggest stages in the past year with nationally touring acts. The 2011 release, The Patti Fiasco, was the 5th most-played album on Colorado radio and single, “Nobody’s Girl,” was the third highest played single of the year. Their 2013 release, Small Town Lights debuted at #5 on the Colorado charts, and is being getting air time across Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico and Texas. The album recently received WPR’s public vote for Best Regional Album, and despite a late year release, finished in the top 10 highest spun Colorado records of 2013. FMI: www.pattifiasco.net
