Produced by Chris Wright of Violet Studios, “Speak of Heaven” marks a turning point for a band known for live shows and energetic improvisation. By focusing the band on their vocal harmonies, Wright has brought the band to another level of playing.
Cycles epitomize the power-trio format with ripping guitar, fat bass grooves played out through furious slapping, and dynamic drum beats flowing over intricate tempo changes.

Patrick Harvey commands the guitar with speed and precision reminiscent of Jimmy Herring while using his loop pedal virtually as its own instrument, a skill unique only to him.
A founding member of the seminal groove band The Greyboy Allstars, organ, keyboard and synth sharp-shooter Robert Walter splits his time between his own 20th Congress, Greyboy, and a robust film soundtrack career in Los Angeles.

Boulder, for so many years, has been a hotbed of music activity. It is known around the country as having one of the most influential music scenes in America; particularly if you’re a fan of newgrass, jambands, electronic, and everything in between. Some of Boulder's longest standing bands have merged traditional American jazz, blues, rock-n-roll, and bluegrass with electronic music and other genres. One example that comes to mind is The String Cheese Incident.
