Casey James Prestwood & The Burning Angels

(Denver )

Casey is the song writer of the group. Born in Virginia, raised in the south, he grew up influenced by family musicians. Founding member of rock band Hot Rod Circuit, Casey has also had tenures with Colorado's Drag The River and many other national acts. Aside from music, Casey is a proud father and husband.

Hailing from Mt. Vernon, Illinois, Kevin has played in multiple acts in Colorado from punk/garage/ska/rock. Finn is currently sponsored by C&C drums out of Kansas.

Originally from NH, Jeff has been playing bass for over 20 years. Nothing flashy here, just straight and narrow.

Dave brings a mix of both classic pedal steel technique blended with his own style of some contemporary players. Dave spends his days building motorcycles and can be seen along side Andy Hamilton and the Rocky Mountain Contraband.

Andy is a long standing member of the Denver music scene. Formally, with his band Houses and currently with The Burning Angels and his own outfit the Rocky Mountain Contraband.

Jeremi's unique and sharp vocals are seldom matched. Brought up singing in church, she is a founding member of Salt Lake City's own Band of Annuals. Casey met Jeremi back in 2006, and has been his "keef" ever since. She currently resides in San Francisco where you can find her playing and singing with The Come Ups.


(Appleton WI)

Dusk is a group that walks the shadowed path. It’s well known in the rural pastures of Wisconsin, where all of the members of this group were raised, that the traditional music of the common people is Polka, but the most respected form of musical expression is Country and Western. Dusk walks cleanly between these two worlds; pulling influence from both but most strongly associating with Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues. They bring with them a strong, informed, melodic statement that draws a line between themselves and the trend of bubble gum pop and country-influenced mall schlock.

The group consists of vocalist Julia Blair on Wurlitzer electric piano, Colin “Wild Man” Wilde on drums and percussion, Amos Pitsch on bass guitar and vocals, Tyler Ditter on lead guitar, and Ryley Crowe on rhythm guitar, pedal steel, and vocals. Amos also doubles as a member of Appleton, Wisconsin punk band Tenement. The group is often compared to 60’s garage and R&B groups like NRBQ and THE LOVIN SPOONFUL, early 70’s country rock pioneers THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS, and at times the primitive rock and roll sound of a group like THE VELVET UNDERGROUND.

They hint at all these things, even as something in their music seems to breathe modern air. It’s a feeling that few musicians that attempt to nod to prior generations can capture without bastardising the very music that they intended to salute. Dusk have done it well, and in their music, you’ll find this plain truth among many exciting secrets.
