Monday JAN 17, 2022 – I hope you had a chance to read John Wenzel‘s “2022 in Denver music: The Lumineers, Bluebook, Yonder Mountain and more new albums coming out this year” in the Denver Post/Reverb. John interviewed me and Alisha Sweeney, local music director at Indie 102.3 FM.

John highlighted the upcoming new album Optimistic Voices, (Feb. 12) by Bluebook along with new 2022 releases from Yonder Mountain String Band (Feb. 25) and The Lumineers (Jan 14). Add to that The Future from Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, which is a 2022 release – and still holding onto the #1 spot in the weekly TOP 5 (below)

Bluebook came onto the scene as the duo of Julie Davis (Nathaniel Rateliff, Gregory Alan Isakov) and Jess Parsons (the Still Tide, Patrick Dethlefs) with their debut EP The Astronaut’s Wife in 2018. The current lineup of Bluebook includes Hayley Helmericks (Snake Rattle Rattle Snake) and Anna Morset (The Still Tide).

Other upcoming new releases include Tejon Street Corner Thieves – Thick As Thieves (March 18) and Musketeer GripweedLong Time Past (spring/summer ’22), part two in a trilogy that started with the popular 2021 release More Than Ever. Also look forward to new releases from Cary Morin & Ghost Dog and A.J. Fullerton.
