Right after 96.9 the Cloud signed on the air in 2017, it was clear to us that there was a need to seek out local Colorado bands that have what’s now known as “the cloud sound” that our listeners have come to expect.
We did not have to look far.
We made a remarkable discovery with our friends and advertising partners at The Buffalo Rose.
Emma Cole (lead vocal), Josh Hester, Seth Beamer and Caleb Thoemke.
The band has now toured most of the country and has appeared on i-Heart Media venues, NBC-TV and with our friends at Colorado Public Radio.
Not only truly gifted and talented musicians, but amazingly spirited and wonderful people.
We are Cloud Proud of Wildermiss and still air their music daily, including the bands latest release Hell or High Water:

Tell us about this special destination?
The Galapagos islands are like no other chain of volcanic islands in the world!
Because of their remoteness, the Galapagos are pristine virtually undiscovered by mankind until 1535.
Because of this relative isolation, the plants, birds and marine animals that thrive here, were able to adapt to the harsh climate and varied ecosystems of the islands without intrusion from outside influences.
Who is a good fit for this trip?
This trip will appeal to the seasoned, able-bodied traveler who might have already been on a Safari but wants a closer interaction with uninhibited animal species both on land and in the water.
Contact us today for a complete deck of information by visiting our website or giving us a call here at our offices in Lakewood, Colorado at (303) 980-6483 (Ext. 1).
A true bucket list opportunity!
Want to promote your special event, business or non-profit in the Cloud?
If you’ve not seen the film or exhibit, it’s very well worth the short trip into Denver to catch the final week and there are still plenty of tickets available.
After a special screening last weekend, the Cloud caught up with the inspired director Peter Chang about his masterpiece work: Cuba.
What inspired you to make this film?
I knew very little about this country only 90 miles of the coast of the U.S. but from what little I’d seen in films I knew I had to go. And when I did I couldn’t put my camera down. There was something special around every corner. I’m attracted to textures and character.
I don’t find much inspiration in new skyscrapers or the latest cars. I like handmade things, vintage things, lived in things, old buildings with interesting histories. It’s so unusual to interact with strangers these days what with everyone staring into smart phones.
In Cuba I talk to more people in a day than in a week here at home, it makes everything an adventure. You have to ask for directions because there’s no GPS, and you may never get where you meant to go but you will make a new friend or see a great band. I wanted to provide a glimpse of the passionate people and vibrant culture there.
What was the biggest challenge in creating this wonderful motion picture?
Getting all the permits and visas for a film of this scale with this many locations had never taken place in Cuba before.
There were a great deal of unpredictable variables to navigate.
During the course of filming, there were two major hurricanes. Both Cuba and the U.S. changed Presidents and both the Pope and the Rolling Stones visited the island causing whole neighborhoods to be locked down for security purposes. We also filmed in a protected marine park which is highly restricted. And got special permission to film aerials in military airspace.
Do you have any additional projects in the works featuring Cuba?
Yes, we have an feature length film as well as a TV series.
We can hardly wait!

There’s a new band in the Cloud that has been getting some attention from our listeners.
The band is The Corona’s and their distinctive alt-pop sound grabbed our attention late last year and we have been showcasing the bands music ever since as a featured new music pick from Lightshade in the Cloud daily.
The Coronas are an Irish rock band that originated in Dublin.
They release their unique blend of music through their own independent record label, but can also be found in i-Tunes.
It’s lead singer can also be heard in the Cloud introducing the bands latest single (it’s kind of cool how that came about).
The bands manager had heard the Cloud was featuring its music and one thing led to another.
The band just appeared at Denver’s Larimer Lounge in February. It was a great show.
Hopefully, they will back soon. In the meantime, you can hear them daily in the Cloud and anytime right here!
