Spotlight: The Amends from Boulder, CO


The Amends have a fast-paced traditional rock-and-roll style with a little bit of an indie twist. They list such influences as the White Stripes and Bob Dylan. Their melodic piano and guitar lines carry their songs while the percussion section drives the pace and the pounding bass line knits the three together.  You can't help but dance to the aptly named 'Dance' (click to listen) Ignore the lyrics and The Amends are a jam band you won't be able to resist rocking out to. Stop and listen closer and you'll recognize the raw emotion written into each verse. 'Hey Regina' is a great example.  

I'll be keeping an eye on their website, as well as their show calendar. You can catch them next at D-Note on July 1st.
