Bio: The Jaden Carlson Band is a high-energy power trio based out of Boulder that melds funk, soul, jazz, fusion and rock. Led by Jaden, a guitar artist, they expertly perform a unique and expansive repertoire of infectious originals and carefully selected covers embodying their own unique arrangements.
Jaden’s band is comprised of herself on lead guitar and vocals, Will Trask on drums, percussion and backing vocals, and Eric Luba on left-hand bass, keys and backing vocals. Having formed in late 2014, the band discovered a common love and joy of creating music during a band-basement jam that, upon playing for the first time, stretched six hours into the night. Subsequent days of hours-long jamming and writing cemented what is now the Jaden Carlson Band, and their enthusiasm for playing together radiates throughout every venue they play.
In their short time as a musical unit, the Jaden Carlson Band has already headlined many theaters, performed on the main stage of major festivals, supported national touring artists (Anders Osborne and Robert Cray), toured throughout many states, and released their own album.
These three talented musicians bring a wealth of musical knowledge, experience and prowess to each performance, and an irresisitable and dynamic energy that has their audiences begging for more. Jaden has shared the stage with many notable artists including Umphrey’s McGee, Michael Franti and Spearhead, The Revivalists, Devon Allman, Dumpstaphunk, Dopapod, Tauk, Roosevelt Collier, John Popper and Blues Traveler, Groundation, and many others. She is the youngest artist to legitimately perform at the Red Rocks Ampitheater…twice, as well as performing frequently at the some of the nation’s best festivals.
