These Software Amps Go to 11

I can’t remember the last time ideaLAB’s recording studio went unused during Open Lab. Along with 3D printing, it’s definitely our most popular offering. The studio has a slew of software, a couple of microphones, a MIDI keyboard controller, digital turntables, a drum machine, and two guitars (one electric and one acoustic/electric).

Stevie Wonder...The Legend

Since I was a little girl, I have been a fan of Stevie Wonder and his music. I grew up on Stevie Wonder and have always wanted to experience the live version of his musical genius.

The British Soul Brother

On January 26th at the First Bank Center, the diverse crowd eagerly awaits for the man of the hour, English singer and songwriter Sam Smith to take the stage. As the First Bank Center goes dark, the screaming pierces my ears and the moment I have been waiting for months has finally arrived!

Volume Denver drink coaster

Greetings, ravenous music fans who are athirst for locally sourced music!

We have four new additions to the VOLUME website this week!

First up we have Dragondeer with their EP 'Don't That Feel Good'.
'Don't That Feel Good' stomps it's way out of the gates with the fantastic song of the same name setting the pace for the album to travel on through many fine permutations of the Blues genre.

I hate to go all “holiday cliché” with this post, but there is nothing better than opening a present before Christmas. That’s why, today, Volume will be giving out five local albums to any Denver Public Library cardholders.

A Cockatiel Christmas

Bette Midler

When do you start playing Christmas music? In my home, it's the day after Thanksgiving when KEZW Studio 1430 AM begins an aural orgy of holiday fare. I discovered 1430 when I was "gifted" a cranky cockatiel. Let's call him Pierre.

Round 2 of Volume Starts Now!

Are you ready for some great new local music? I hope so, because we've just finished reviewing the second round of submissions for Volume, our local music site. We received over 60 submissions this time around, and have chosen the albums that will be used. We're working with the musicians on the paperwork, and on our technical end to get the music loaded. We'll be releasing new albums, every Tuesday, as we're ready (again, DRM- and $$$-free to DPL cardholders!).
