Silver and Smoke has come a long way since their inception in 2015. What began as a musical project started by high school buddies Ty Bray and Dino Ianni has steadily blossomed into a full-fledged rock’n’roll group. In the last eight months, the band has added bassist Rick Brown and reunited with former sound engineer and drummer Diego Valenzuela, creating an epic combination that rocks harder than ever.
Watch Silver and Smoke’s “Hope You’re Happy” music video:
After the release of their first two EPs Workhorse and Marking Time, the band continues to astound, with their evolution from the blues, to country-style rock, to heavy-hitting rock’n’roll. They continue to fill classic venues such as Herman’s Hideaway, Lion’s Lair, The Walnut Room, and various breweries throughout the city, yet still remain as some of the most down-to-earth, genuine music-making folks out there.
The band has been working closely with Denver’s Acacia Jade Studios recently, located in the heart of the RiNo Art District. The studio’s CEO Wesley Henkle shared a bit about what it’s been like working with the band:
“Tyler and Dino have helped us tremendously with our beat production by adding live instrumentation to not only our own songs but working as a rhythm section with other artists from various genres. Their fun high-level of energy combined with a strong work ethic and a drive for perfection makes them a great fix for AJS.”
With an ever-growing fan base, I’d advise anyone to hop on the Silver and Smoke train soon. They’ve got more music coming out, starting with their upcoming single “Burning Bridges,” which will be the first release off their soon-to-be-recorded third EP.
“Burning Bridges” is unlike anything Silver and Smoke fans have heard from them before. Its smooth, dark Santana vibe epitomizes the song’s storyline about packing up and moving on from whatever is holding you back (in this case, a relationship). The single is set to be released and available in all digital music stores on Valentine’s Day. So whether you’re a lonely heart, or a happy clam, there’s no doubt you’re going to dig what Silver and Smoke is about to showcase.
Be to sure catch Silver and Smoke at their (FREE) upcoming show next Thursday, February 2nd at Lincoln’s Roadhouse. In the meantime, subscribe to band’s newsletter and check out their website for the latest and greatest on releases, announcements, and new merchandise.
