Grant Livingston is a singer/songwriter who delivers immersive grooves and contemplative lyricism in the form of transcendental folk music. His debut album, Grant & Friends, is a collection of heartfelt original songs that showcase Livingston’s timeless, yet innovative blend of folk, rock, funk, soul, bluegrass, and roots music.
In a live setting, Livingston uses improvisation and energetic reciprocity to cater to authentic expression, spiritual liberation, and/or just a good old-fashioned boogie.
Strange Americans play music that is a little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest. It’s Americana rock and roll and it’s something that Denver’s Strange Americans are crafting with both brawn and finesse, like a hot rod mechanic bringing back an old barn find.
In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no-frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.
Number 38 is at 3560 Chestnut Pl., Denver.
