Sailing to Denver! Our first CD is released, with a celebration show tonight!

This eight song demonstration of our original sound is just a taste of what is to come. Stay posted for some free listening! We went into Vision Studio with a list of 20 songs and completed eight of our favorites. Being a sextet we tried to showcase each individual’s strengths while staying within the context of the band. That has always been a driving force in all STD’s musical ventures. Below is a video with Sailing to Denver covering a love song by The Talking Heads.

David Byrne is a large influence on our band, but in terms of our original music Brent Sandel is the songwriter and foremost arranger.

Brent had not only five band-mates in mind, but also the idea of the masses, and live audiences all of which influenced his decision making. With this attitude in mind Brent, and all of Sailing to Denver set the foundation for what is becoming the Sailing to Denver Sound. This encompasses a sound that continuously evolves for us.

Moving the focus from a huge cover catalog, (from AC/DC to Bach, literally) to an equally expansive assortment of nameless original ideas, we bring pieces to a table to make a whole. A whole idea, a whole song, a whole album. Doing what man does best, trying to give names to things that once were nameless. Remembering a name is just that, nothing more, and the sum is always greater than the parts.

Brent Sandel, Guitar, Piano, Vocals
Shannon Case, Vocals, Percussion
Jake Cohan, Mandolin, Vocals
Patrick Haynes, Stand up Bass, Pedal Steel, Fiddle, Vocals
Jenna Shea Mobley, Fiddle, Vocals
Mason Lutz, Percussion, Cajon, Vocals
Caled Elemam, guitar, utility band member and contributor

I would like to say thanks to all of the above mentioned musicians, as well as all the friends, family, artists, peoples and places that has made this creative work possible. At the Star Bar tonight at 9:30 at the with the help of great friends, and great bands in and of themselves, The Dust Up and Sans Abri we Sailing to Denver will play a set in celebration for the ages. CD’s will be available for purchase at the show. I can only hope your listening conveys the beautiful felling of actualization I felt, and saw throughout the faces of all parties involved, in this recording.

In times to come, be they blissful or tragic, it is insightful to remember, “it is what you make of it.” This album was made for each and everyone in an effort to help us all tap into whatever, “it,” is by means of artistic expression.
