Gasoline Lollipops

Gasoline Lollipops stitch scraps of American roots music to patches of their own tattered hearts to form an all-new tapestry of bleeding rock n’ roll.

Bio:

Formed in Colorado, Gasoline Lollipops’ members hail from different states, musical backgrounds, influences, and generations. When mixed, their sound is both sweet and explosive, like a Gasoline Lollipop.

Denver Westword awarded Gasoline Lollipops "Best Country Artist" in 2016 and 2018, and the group - which released the debut album Resurrection in February 2017 and followed it with Soul Mine just 11 months later - won the 2014, 2015 and 2017 Colorado Daily reader's polls for "Best Boulder Band."

The GasPops have shared stages with such respected artists as Florence + the Machine, Brandi Carlile, Todd Snider, and others. They've also played numerous acclaimed music festivals, including Grandoozy, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Salmonfest Alaska, NedFest, Bohemian Nights @ New West Fest, and Camp Out for the Cause.

Press:

"If the Coen Brothers and Nick Cave holed up in Nashville after a near-death experience, it might sound something like Resurrection.”

“Uncompromised, vicious and authentic” 

-Denver Post

“Somewhere in between punk provocateurs and folk storyteller, these talented musicians managed to combine engaging riffs and straight-forward arrangements with personable lyrics and quintessential arrangements that feel organic and diverse.”

-FolkNRock.com

“A group that combines elegance with grit and a rambunctious intensity” 

– Denver Westword

“You'll feel like you're listening to a Johnny Cash concert after Johnny's had a hit of acid and a hit of ecstasy and done 100 pushups backstage.”

- Colorado Daily

"Gasoline Lollipops has managed to take the well-tread turf of alt-country and make it feel newly discovered. There is nothing hasty about [Resurrection]. These are songs that have been road-crafted before a live audience, smoothing out any potential snags. As a result, they almost immediately sound like classics you’ve probably heard somewhere. It would’ve been a lot easier to slam together a few outlaw country lyrics about drinking, throw in some pedal steel and a thumping bass, and call it good. Instead, we have musicians who are considerate of each performance, and a production quality that honors the songs"

 - Scene Magazine of Northern Colorado

"A penchant for rebellion emerges in the sometimes gruff, growling vocals that pepper the band’s earnest alt-folk"

- Boulder Weekly
