Aspen Hourglass is a classical fusion rock band. This slightly self-labeled genre came about by necessity, as the band struggled to find a genre in which to compare itself. Combining classical piano, slap/tap guitar techniques, bass synth, trapset, and lush vocals, Grayson Erhard, Elvin Holderfield, and Sean Hanson have created a unique tapestry of sound – melding their fondness for composition and expression with their desire to meaningfully connect with audience members.
Largely against clichés, Aspen Hourglass unintentionally formed inside of a garage in 2012. After various instrumental experimentation, a three-piece sound was chosen. The imagery and concept behind the name “Aspen Hourglass” illustrates change in time, color, transition, impermanence and the geography of their home – Colorado.
A paramount intent of the band is to grow the community and group as organically as possible through live performances, benefits, and opportunities to fellow artists.
The band was chosen by PopVulture Magazine in March 2013 to become a Headline Artist in their physical and online magazine. They have also been featured on the cover of Colorado Music Buzz’s October 2013 issue and selected as an “Artist to Watch” in 2014, chosen as the “Artist of the Month” by Callywood Radio in December 2013, had multiple features in Colorado State University’s Collegian, an article in SwitchOn!’s global physical and online magazine, a full-page written in the February 2014 edition of Scene Magazine, and multiple full-page articles in Fort Collins Magazine. The band is also on regular rotation with numerous radio stations globally.
Aspen Hourglass has opened for many national acts such as: The Flobots, Passafire, Barcelona, Matthew Santos, This Must be the Band, Miguel Dakota, and Darling Parade. They have also played at many of the region’s largest entertainment venue’s including the Aggie Theatre, Fox Theatre, Oriental Theatre, Pepsi Center and, more recently, Chautauqua, Pike’s Peak Center and a performance at Buell Theatre for Murmuration 2015. They’ve frequently toured outside of the state and have larger national tours slated for the near future.
In 2015, the band released their debut EP, “Navigate”, and have appeared in many of Colorado’s main media outlets from Boulder Daily Camera’s Second Story Garage to the Denver Loft Sessions. Aspen Hourglass just recently performed at the renowned SXSW festival in Austin, TX for the Colorado Music Party to a packed house and will also be involved in some of Colorado’s biggest festivals and venues: Taste of Fort Collins, Captiol Hill’s People’s Fair, and Denver Day of Rock.
