Live & Out to Lunch
Part interview, part performance, this Fort Collins StartUp Week edition of KRFC’s flagship show broadcasts LIVE from the Music District Living Room. This segment will feature two local musicians Liz Gaylor and Brent Cowles. Bring your appetite because there will be a local food truck onsite. Be prepared to whet your appetite for live music and innovative conversation. Limited seating.
Gretta Cornett is a local musician, as well as a local music lover and supporter. She is most recognized as the trumpet player for 12 Cents for Marvin, the 3 Twins and Mama Lenny & the Remedy. She is a graduate of the CSU music department and her behind the scenes work include co-founding the Fort Collins Musicians Association, co-creating FoCoMX, working as the marketing director for the Boulder Theater and Fox Theatre and volunteering at KRFC 88.9 FM. Greta currently works for the Bohemian Foundation on the Music Programs Team as the Marketing and Talent Coordinator.
Liz Gaylor is a musician and local entrepreneur. She has been active in the Fort Collins music scene playing 5-string violin in several groups: MIRROR FIELDS and Wasteland Hop. Most recently a duo project, Jinnjinni, (debut album out April 4th, 2018). When faced with job loss in 2014, Liz saw that she had the opportunity to dedicate more time to music: she put her herbalist credentials to work and started her business, Mountain Aven Herbal, giving her the ability to manage her time and pursue her passions at her own pace.
Brent Cowles: A few years ago singer-songwriter Brent Cowles had no idea he was stumbling toward a deeper self-actualization and the record that would likely break his career wide open. For the first 16 years of his life, Cowles spent three or four days a week at his pastor father’s nondenominational church – an experience that left him cold on organized religion but inspired by the many church hymns that surrounded him. Before choosing to release music under his own name, Cowles and his profoundly soulful voice wooed audiences and industry alike as frontman of indie folk troubadours You Me & Apollo. Brent Cowles and his four-piece band will play at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, and Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Idaho, in March before setting out on a West Coast tour behind Cold Times, which will be released April 28 with a show at the Hi-Dive in Denver, Colo.
