Boulder Acoustic Society


BAS’ music is haunted by the past and focused on the future.

It’s indie-folk that draws from Appalachian roots, gritty gospel and the contemporary urban soundscapes. BAS merges tradition with innovation, producing a unique sound and an unforgettable live entertainment experience.

Five years, five albums and relentless touring have honed Boulder Acoustic Society into one of tightest and most entertaining bands of any genre. The pulsing percussion and thumping bass of Scott Aller and Neil McCormick support the dual lead vocals of multi-instrumentalists Scott McCormick and Aaron Keim.

Trees Leave has had the privilege of sharing the stage with the following artist: The Greencards, Sam Bush, Angie Aparro, Tim O'Brien, The Infamous Stringdusters, Irons In The Fire, The Lovell Sisters, Mac Powell (Third Day), Shane and Shane, Trevor Morgan, Randall Goodgame, Brianna Lane, Kort McCumber

"....adds a fresh voice to the alternative folk scene with songs that morn opportunities lost and celebrate hope renewed......the duo captures the essence of today's troubadour." - Wylie Graver / Verge Live Magazine

“Why can’t we let go of things that don’t want us? When we hear the sounds of ghosts that will haunt us, why don’t we run?” from “Run” by Trees Leave

This unique group is a true cafe collaboration; all members of the group are baristas at the Kentucky Coffeetree Cafe. Singers/Songwriters Jeri Katherine Howell and Nick Holmes are joined with Anna Hess and Nat Colten to create a medley of Americana tunes.

Nora Jane Struthers calls her music “Classic Americana.” The singer-songwriter’s self-titled solo bow, to be issued June 22 on her own label, will be a revelation to roots music fans: overflowing with affecting, literate original compositions and featuring a complement of top Nashville players, it announces the debut of a major new talent.

In an effort to keep the the good times rolling in a gleefully depressing way, Sam Quinn brings you his latest incarnation of Honest American Music, The Japan Ten.

Sam Quinn and Japan Ten offer toe-tapping and cheek-salting songs of liberation and release to quell the longings of the soul, quiet the whispers of your fears, and quench the spirit that is this great country. The band plays some of the high points from the everybodyfields records, but also a lot of new stuff and, well, just some things that make them feel good. Cause if it feels good you should do it. Right?

Music: let it be fun again, and with a Q.
