Hello, friends! Thank you for visiting our website. The stars are aligning in the most fascinating ways.
We are releasing our new album '(compass)' in a series of monthly thematic performances at Leon Gallery in Denver. The Series will culminate with the release of (compass) on June 23rd. At the first show in March we looked West and found the first piece of (compass) - a secret code to advance download three new songs. They were delivered along with a note that read:
"Go to Leon Gallery on April 21st, beneath Lyrid's meteor shower. Look South and you will find the next piece of the (compass). Remember, the (compass) only reveals itself to those who look."

Soldiering through the near-calamity, the band is a now tight unit of melody, atmosphere and space; not merely the brainchild of songwriter Brandon Decker. Slider’s release marks a newer, more complex sound for the band – think Beck’s Sea Change meets The White Stripes meets The Arcade Fire. Decker crafts songs which find profundity in their naked sincerity. Not quite rock, not quite folk, the acoustic-based psychedelic Americana balladry draws upon a variety of influences; from Leonard Cohen to Tom Waits, from Cat Power to PJ Harvey.
“The band’s intensity, its ability to tap into spooky Old Testament terror as well as pastoral Verde River amble, is what sets it apart from the ever-crowded indie folk populace.” - Jason Woodbury, Phoenix New Times
Calliope of the Future:
Calliope of the Future has seen many iterations of form since its inception in Detroit 7 years ago. Tovio Roberts and a diverse cast of musicans and performers have performed surreal shows on extended european bike tours and American not-so-bike tours. The past couple years have been focused primarily on street performance, recording and cultivating single-inception shows with diverse instrumentation and narratives.
