One Flew West
One Flew West
One Flew West formed in Longmont, Colorado in 2014. They garnered immediate attention with their first single, “Kind of Love,” which placed in the Top 3 for KTCL’s Hometown for the Holidays. Since then, their brand of pop rock with punk personality has earned them a place among Denver’s most popular up-and-coming bands. CBS has named OFW a “Band to Watch.”

In 2018, OFW’s newest single “Trial and Error” was featured in multiple major Spotify playlists, including Pop Punk’s Not Dead, The Scene, and Discover Weekly. They were also an artist on the final Vans Warped Tour, and have two new singles slated for release later this year.

Notable acts that OFW has performed with include Descendents, Plain White T’s, Dirty Heads, Highly Suspect, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Wombats, Passion Pit, As It Is, Don Broco, Cold War Kids, Saint Motel, Skinny Lister, The Ataris, Judah & The Lion, The Spill Canvas, The Unlikely Candidates, Will Varley, and more.
OptycNerd
OptycNerd
After meeting at a house party and realizing they both had the same first name, Chris Kimmel and Chris Scott immediately knew that they had to form a group and change human existence as we know it. They joined forces and created what is now known as OptycNerd. Since then, the Denver-based duo has crafted their own signature sound- one that fuses electronic production with the lyrical and melodic elements of hip hop and pop. Many consider the group to be a cross between the vocal styles of Post Malone and the pop-electro vibes of Calvin Harris. With these guys on your radar, you can expect consistent bangers, an outrageous social media presence, and high energy live performances.

On February 25th, 2017, we released our debut EP under our band name. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We're about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with Dictionary.com. "Holdfast" was the "Word of the Day." I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those "Words of the Day." I admired the thought of "Holdfast" being one word, but it's meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers - have done, & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life
