Martian Acres is home to an official population of two--Bob Story and Dennis Wanebo--who combined their very different personal and professional backgrounds to create this music they call "alt Boulder."
Their first CD, "Middle of the Night," (produced with a musical cast including some of Colorado's brightest lights) brought them the expected joy and satisfaction of a job well done.
Two of the songs, "Middle of the Night" and "Dan's Place" (ROCK and COUNTRY ROCK) quickly found a place in the regular rotation at one of Denver's premier rock stations: 99.5, "The Mountain."
Another song, "Diamond in the Rough," went somewhere else entirely . . . the John Lennon International Songwriting Competition named "Diamond" one of the top ten COUNTRY songs of 2003. ("OK, they've got rock and country . . . what else have they got?" Interesting you should ask.) A fourth song, "Water Under the Bridge" was recently included in "The Essential JAZZ Collection" issued by Oasis Records in Atlanta.
And on the net? Well, the Middle of the Night CD is selling well. Maybe that's as it should be. The net has been "very very good" to Martian Acres. The title cut, "Middle of the Night," has been selected for inclusion in the "best of" CD from VS Planet Radio--which is hardly surprising, since the song was NUMBER ONE ON VS PLANET CHARTS (!) several times during 2004, and was the far-and-away winner on VS Planet's "power chart."
Look and listen to "Waltz to War," Bob and Dennis' second CD, which can be found at http://cdbaby.com/cd/martianacres2 They are incredibly excited about this new material which reflects their growth as songwriters and musicians. Share the discovery of Martian Acres and Alt Boulder with all of your music-loving friends. It's un-niche-able.
