Broken Land: Colorado Alt-Country Band Ready to Keep You Dancing

By: Hannah Oreskovich

Based out of Lafayette, CO, alt-country rock band Broken Land have been playing the Front Range together since 2014. Comprised of members Todd Schroeder (vocals), Chris Anton (guitar), Rick Schwolsky (pedal steel/dobro), Chris Howarth (bass), Curt Pleiss (drums), and Allison Langley (vocals), the six-piece outfit are currently signed to Drowsy Dog Records.

After a series of earlier EPs, Broken Land released their debut self-titled album this past March. Its 12 tunes boast plenty of rockin’ twang and boot-stompin’ alt-country goodness to get you up off your feet and onto that local brewery dance floor (you know you want to).

Next month, you’ve got two sweet chances to catch a Broken Land performance on the Front Range. The band will be playing local photographer Lisa Siciliano’s art show Friday, December 9th at Boulder’s Riverside. Then on Friday, December 30th the group will be at Longmont’s Oskar Blues to close out 2016.
