Meagan Chandler’s body is her instrument. Well, technically her voice is her instrument, but the vivacious singer draws her lyrics and one-of-a-kind music from bodily inspiration. Her voice, she says, “just happens to make noise.”

A year after Michigan Mike’s tie-dye-in-the-dust music fest proved it can go on without him, with a little help from his friends, NedFest still swings a pretty mean hula hoop.

REVIEW: Queens of the Stone Age at Red Rocks, 08-15-13

By David Accomazzo
Call me a fanboy. Call me obsessed. Call me what ever you'd like, but I'm of the firm belief that no band has made better rock music over the past decade-and-a-half than Queens of the Stone Age.

For the love of it

Lyle Lovett, always the maverick, is looking forward to being a musical free agent

By Alan Sculley
Lyle Lovett doesn’t let himself get tied down to a set list with his concerts. Yes, he has one, but it’s hardly set in stone. To script a show so tightly would rob Lovett of one of his main joys of performing, the flexibility to respond to the audience and play requests or to alter the selection of songs to fit the mood of the evening.

A farewell to the baton at the CMF

Finale concert marks the end of conductor Michael Christie’s tenure with the CMF

By Peter Alexander
One day, back when she was Kristy Peterson, composer Kristin Kuster got bored. The Boulder native was supposed to be practicing the piano, but like a lot of kids she got tired of the pieces she had been assigned. So she went into her father’s study, took out the scissors, and cut Mozart into tiny one-measure fragments.

Gregory Alan Isakov: The horticultural hypnotist

Singer-songwriter's new album is spellbinding

By David Accomazzo
A vein of nature runs through troubadour Gregory Alan Isakov's music, fitting imagery for the singer-songwriter, who lived on a farm for several years. On his new album, The Weatherman, which dropped July 9, Isakov sings of “casting hooks off the California coast,” “plucking strings in the pouring rain” and “waiting in the wings while the trees undress.”
