CPR Performance Studio
The Colorado Pubic Radio Performance Studio provides a stage to showcase the depth and variety of both classical, and new and independent music coming to, and from, Colorado. CPR's OpenAir also offers a podcast of interviews and performances from select musicians, and additional performances from the archive available here.
After longtime friends Will Walden and Matt McGuire left Southern California to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder, the musicians soon transformed their dorm rooms into studios and adopted the moniker StaG. The band makes gentle, reverb-heavy pop music and recently released a new single to follow its 2011 full-length, "Rifle Meeker". Now a quartet, StaG stopped by OpenAir to play some new songs and chat about the next record the guys plan to release this summer.
What started as a trip to L.A. to record with renowned producer Andy Johns, (Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin) has resulted in the Swayback's long-awaited new record, Double Four Time. The Denver rockers offered an exclusive introduction to the album when they stopped by OpenAir.
