idlewhile Band

All Ages | Saturday Night - 8:00am to 9:00am (Saturday) @ Odell Brewing Co

Electric Eclectic Folk Rock, Hilly-Billy Americana

(idlewhile Band's) Collazo, a singer whose voice has the sweet, dark flavor of grape jelly, is no doubt herself the object of many musical crushes. Listeners are at a disadvantage when confronted with Collazo, a musical technician who's attuned to minute adjustments that can enchant or deflate a passage and who pays meticulous attention to the way each line comes out...Sweet surrender.
Quentin Young - Boulder Daily Camera Friday Magazine

if there is a quintessentially Coloradan kind of music, it is a style that favors an earthy authenticity and employs traditional instrumentation, especially bluegrass and country strings, but expands on the usual use and swaps an Appalachian conservatism for a Rocky Mountain high... "Americana" is the term people reach for to encompass this unwieldy category. Think of Elephant Revival and Paper Bird. idlewhile rests somewhere nearby. Harmonies by Collazo and Phoenix, who front the band, are the sweet spots of their music. They have a fiddle player, Miguel Ramos, and an upright bassist, Paul Tedesco, as well as a banjo player, Matt Lawlor, and a mandolinist, Chad Granoff. The same personnel could make a bluegrass band, but instead they wield electric guitars, and Lawlor mainly plays drums. They're richly acoustic on one hand, seductively rock on the other" - Quentin Young, Longmont Times-Call
