Last Humans merge a vast range of both musical and geographic influences. From dive bars in Cleveland to warehouse shows in West Texas and classical performance halls in Australia, the band members have earned their stripes as musicians. With a wide variety of influences from bands like Murder by Death, Alabama Shakes, The Black Keys, The Band, and Pink Floyd, they have created a sound that’s all their own.
Frontman Rob Geer gained attention as a solo act in Cleveland, Ohio before moving to Colorado, and he has joined up with keyboardist and singer Arianne Rabbitt, lead guitarist Josh Miles, bassist Matthew Vermillion, and drummer Adam Segalis, who have all performed in various bands in the Denver music scene over the past several years.
Winner of the Americana/Roots category for the 2019 Westword Music Awards.
Americana singer-songwriter Brianna Straut conveys the human condition through empathetic storytelling.
Born and raised in Texas, Brianna sings from her roots, incorporating lamentations of lost love and soaring moments of hanging on to the good times into her bittersweet folk tunes. She’s been a member of Denver-based Americana outfits such as Bison Bone and Tomahawk Fox. More recently, Brianna has branched out on her own as a singer-songwriter with a voice that is as proud as the Rocky Mountains she now calls home.
Her latest release, La Mano is the first in a series of three albums inspired by the hands of her community. Marquee Magazine has described it as “… the hard, chapped and cracked withered hands of modern working-class Americana — coupled, of course, with Straut’s beautiful, soaring voice.”
Brianna has opened for artists such as Lillie Mae, Son Volt and Israel Nash. She’s been compared to Lori McKenna in a recent write up by 303 Magazine in which they write, “[T]here is something about a girl and a guitar that can tug at those heartstrings. Straut pulls from her personal experiences to really give her songs a deep sense of emotion that listeners can empathize with regardless of their own personal experiences.”
Brianna has been touring the country promoting her new album and gaining experience to write into her next.
I started cooking BBQ about 13 years ago for friends and family. Everyone kept asking why I didn’t open my own place.
Well now that I am getting closer to retirement age I wanted something to keep me busy, so I figured “What the heck, I’ll open a concession trailer. So here I am still working a regular job and getting ready to run a concession trailer on my days off. I love to share my love for BBQ with others. I cook the meats and my wife does the side dishes , we make a good team.
