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.
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.
Voted "Best Musician/Group" in the Colorado Daily's "Colorado University and Boulder's Best" in 2014, 2015, and 2017.

"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”
“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.”
“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.”

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