Nativeson - Stones In The Pathwa
Nativeson is an ongoing and evolving Northern Colorado indie music project started in the summer of 2003 by three working musicians with day jobs and bands of their own, who decided to find the time to record a locally based original acoustic/rock music cd for the purpose of learning to use their newly acquired music recording software.
- Ernie Mose on drums,
- James Ballen on bass guitar and
- Craig MacLeod aka cragermac on vocals and acoustic guitar.
The debut cd "Stones In The Pathway" contains ten songs written by cragermac in his self proclaimed "Progressive Retro" genre. The cd also features:
- Dave Hidalgo of long standing Denver, CO favorite "Rasputin" on several tracks on keyboards.
- Alex Otero of Greeley, CO based "FoneeBelowKnee" on lead guitar on two tracks.
- Jym Britton on lead vocal &
- Jimmi DuPree on lead guitar, both of recently re-formed local success "The Termites" (James Ballen's band) on one track each.
- Dave McKenzie, co-founding and former member of "True North" and newest addition to popular hot local act "Left of Center" on lead guitar on one track. And the lovely and ever congenial
- Amy Dyer, outdoor aficionado and popular animal-rights personality, on backing vocals.
A second cd is also planned that will feature more of cragermac's more recent original songs, collective efforts from the Native Son core three and one track from FoneeBelowKnee (Alex, Ernie and cragermac).
