This band’s ruminating respect for music of the past, and deep dedication toward the creative crafting of a new sound, sets Tenth Mountain Division apart in the Colorado music scene.
Tenth Mountain Division speaks the language of Colorado, the language of the mountains.
After a few years dedicated to playing bluegrass, the duo transitioned to an electrified, rock ’n’ roll sound. Throughout its preliminary years finding its roots in college and playing with an array of different line-ups, the band finally found its permanent line up in May of 2017 with the addition of bassist and vocalist Andrew Cooney.
Drummer Tyler Gwynn and the ever-talented keyboard player Campbell Thomas form the quintet that creates a diverse soundscape combining soaring electric guitar leads and jabbing keys while retaining its roots in bluegrass with Winston Heuga’s incomparable mandolin style.
The rhythmic interplay of the driving bass fused with Gwynn’s incendiary drumming round out the unique sounding band that is truly a style of its own, what the band refers to as "ski rock."
