Since their formation in 2015, the members of Silver And Smoke have been blazing a trail in a genre they’ve coined as “Western Rock.” The Colorado-grown quartet draw from a variety of influences, including: blues, classic rock, soul, folk, country, punk, bluegrass, jazz, and classical - making their music one fiery combination.

In just two years, members Ty Bray (vocals/guitar), Dino Ianni (lead guitar/saxophone), Diego Valenzuela (drums), and Rick Brown (bass) have released two EPs (Workhorse - 2015; Marking Time - 2016), produced two music videos, have toured the west coast, and have been featured on various radio stations across the West, including 105.5 The Colorado Sound. They have performed at venues including Summit Music Hall, Walnut Room, Lion’s Lair, and recently made their debut at the 2017 Underground Music Showcase.

In July 2017, Silver And Smoke released their newest music video for the single “Crooked Road,” which will be featured on their third, upcoming EP (Spring 2018). The video was filmed both at their studio, Acacia Jade Studios, as well as their sold-out show at Globe Hall in Denver, CO.

The release of “Crooked Road,” which has reached over 7K views on social media, could not have come at a better time for the band, as they’ve continued to meet the fruit of their hard work and sleepless nights. Silver And Smoke are currently partnered with LivWell Enlightened Health and Native Gorilla, and will be announcing a collaboration with a local microbrewery in 2018.

Through their tireless passion and fierce dedication to their music, Silver And Smoke accompany their accomplishments through their belt-all, soul-on-the-stage performances and love for their fans. Time after time, they fill up venues and prove themselves as wildly seasoned musicians who are Colorado’s next big thing.

In the band’s own words:

"This band is basically the only thing we think about. Between booking shows, planning tours, rehearsing, recording promoting, managing, and finding time between all those things to write songs, Silver And Smoke is pretty much our whole life. It's so worth it though, we just love playing and being a part of the Denver music scene."
