Sylvan Esso has been on the rise for a few years and finally made their triumphant return Red Rocks! For those of you who don't know, this electronic pop duo is from Durham, North Carolina and consists of singer Amelia Meath and producer Nick Sandborn. They packed in Red Rocks to the very brim so people were obviously very excited to see them!
Funny story actually, while we were standing in the photo pit, which by the way was crammed with about 15 photographers. I'm telling you people were excited about Sylvan Esso. The last time they played here was as an opening for My Morning Jacket in 2015. One of them told us that Amelia was actually in a bluegrass band before being in Sylvan Esso. So we looked further into this and found out that while she was in this band she walked into a bar where Nick was playing and randomly asked him to remix one of her other songs. He did, and the rest is history! Now, some of their most famous songs include "Coffee", "Radio" and "Die Young". Go take a listen if you haven't already!
