Singer-songwriter Daniel Rodriguez releases of his debut collection of music as a solo artist on a five-song EP titled, Your Heart The Stars The Milky Way. Rodriguez speaks of these new songs being his emotional response to the end of a 14-year relationship with a bandmate in Elephant Revival, a transcendental folk band who 5280 Magazine describes as “a pioneer and mainstay of the Colorado music scene” and who has since announced its hiatus.
In his second single as a solo musician, Daniel Rodriguez explores a sound different from his offerings in Colorado folk band Elephant Revival. “Johnny” features a dramatic and mysterious Latin groove, courtesy of special guests Tyler Thompson and Jeff Leonard of Fruition, Darren Garvey of Elephant Revival, Sam Trump of Sidewalk Chalk, and Lewi Longmire. “Johnny” is the second single to be released from Rodriguez’s upcoming EP release, out February 15, 2019.
The Proxy is a collaboration between members of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (Alex Ebert, Nico Aglietti) and Elephant Revival (Bonnie Paine, Bridget Law, Dango Rose, Darren Garvey) to support Proxy.Vote--A new, more democratic way to express the will of the people, powered by social and legislative technology that enables voters to organize and tell their elected representatives how to vote in real-time.

Highlighted by spirited headlining performances by The Devil Makes Three (Saturday), The Infamous Stringdusters (Friday), and Railroad Earth (Sunday), there was a profound additional component to this year’s WinterWonderGrass Tahoe. The weather. Before turning all sunny on Sunday, Friday and Saturday’s proceedings included periodic showers of snow, graupel (look it up), and a little rain.
2018’s rendition of WinterWonderGrass lived up to its designation in every sense of the word this past weekend, as bluegrass fans from around the country gathered in majestic Steamboat Springs, Colorado to dance, drink and smiled the night away beneath the magnificent Park Range. The weekend more than lived up to expectation and hype, with incredible bluebird days and epic snow-covered nights, providing world-class skiing throughout the weekend and top-notch bluegrass to cap the night activities.
It’s been a difficult decision, but Elephant Revival is going on hiatus after our Red Rocks show on May 20th. We will also be appearing at a few select festivals and canceling all other shows.
The band has been dealing with some family matters that have led us to reassess and realize that, while we’ve all been putting so much energy into Elephant Revival, we need some time to reconnect with our loved ones and focus on personal growth.
