"His songs are like combines. Upon ignition the teeth and the gears begin churning and he just throttles it out and into the open – tearing up the fields, raping the land of its bounty and leaving the earth bare and naked and ashamed, but somehow grateful." ~ The Denver Syntax
Blending piano-based folk Americana with a sprinkle of rock, a dash of cabaret and a whole lot of charisma, the Denver, CO, band has built up a wicked show. Since 2007, after many twists and turns, and life surprises (babies!!) the band has evolved into a dynamic, eclectic group of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists with a heavy dose of harmony, and a filter of whatever instruments are on hand. See them in their favorite setting, a house show, or on stage at a club, and you will never forget them.
Kid Reverie is a new project out of Denver featuring the voice and writing of Steve Varney, guitarist for Gregory Alan Isakov and former leader of the Denver band Glowing House. Varney put together a quartet at the beginning of 2016 and began writing furiously. Based in a sound somewhere between Feist and The Black Keys, the songs are about loss, important conversations, love, war, the media, but the lyrics don't give everything away at once. While the words may often be somber, the music is designed to leave you feeling optimistic about whatever the topic. Sounds like rock, reads like folk, and it can make you dance.
