King Cardinal

Denver, CO

Hailed by Marquee Magazine for their "excellently crafted Americana" and Westword for their "raw, gut-wrenching emotion," the members of Denver's King Cardinal push raw roots rock into lush, sonically daring territory with hints of cosmic country and delicate folk. Building off the success of two acclaimed EPs as well as dates with Ben Sollee, Sam Outlaw and Darlingside (in addition to a performance at the iconic Telluride Bluegrass Festival), the band released its debut album, “Great Lakes” in September 2017. The album was recorded over seven days at Texas's famed Sonic Ranch studio with GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer Ted Young (Israel Nash, Banditos).
