With an obvious nod to the faded glory of the internet acronym, half a decade since those cryptic strings of capital letters were rendered obsolete by animated emoticons and glitter drenched image loops that vanish as inexplicably as they arrive, JKLOL (the harmony singing trio of Jefferson Hamer, Kristin Andreassen, and Lauren Balthrop) mean business about not taking this whole business too seriously. They’ve already earned gold-status in the folk star frequent flyer program, with Kristin fronting legendary old-time group Uncle Earl and having her own songs all over cable television, Lauren releasing an acclaimed album of original songs with Bob Weir’s own producer Josh Kaufman, and Jefferson winning a BBC award for his duo with Anais Mitchell. This new collaboration, nobody’s first rodeo, is built on mutual respect and a desire to bring something fun to the stage, perhaps to express a bit less confessional earnestness, and more pure joy.
Rocky Mountain raised Singer-Songwriter Megan Burtt says “I’ve always written songs . “I took piano lessons when I was young, but when I picked up my dad’s old classical guitar, things took off.” Inspired by Joni Mitchell’s Blue, Burtt taught herself to play, dreaming of a musical career. “I didn’t know any girls who played music, but Blue, Bonnie Raitt’s Nick of Time and the women on the MTV videos I saw, let me know it was possible.” Megan now splits her time between Brooklyn, NY, Denver, CO and on the road.
Megan has toured nationally and abroad as a headlining artist, and as support for acts including Gregory Alan Isakov, Mark Cohen, Brett Dennen, Glenn Phillips of Toad The Wet Sprocket, Lissie, and Leanne Rimes. In 2015 she collaborated with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, as a featured artist.
In late 2017 Megan began a collaboration with four fellow red heads to form an Americana-Roots band called Gingerbomb. In addition to this new project, Megan is currently in the studio working on her third full-length solo record, slated for a Fall 2018 release.
