The Heyday & Danielle Ate the Sandwich

SpokesBUZZ has always been committed to sponsoring and promoting up-and-coming bands.  Along the way, we have been showered with support from many established Colorado bands.  Two of these bands are The Heyday and Danielle Ate the Sandwich, who we were privileged to have grace the stage at this year’s SXSW Showcase.

The Heyday

Genre: Rock/Pop

Background

The Heyday formed in the spring of 2006, when singer-songwriter Randy Ramirez and pianist Jeff Appareti parted ways with their former Americana-roots project aptly-named “Like Chasing Wind.” Shortly after, guitarist Brian Martin and drummer Sean Bennett began sneaking away from their other bands to develop the Heyday’s sound in Appareti’s parents’ basement. The band calls them fit for “the drive home with your friends on the last night of summer,” but these radio-ready tunes are destined for bigger things.

Danielle Ate the Sandwich

Genre: Indie Folk/Acoustic

Danielle “Ate the Sandwich” Anderson is a solid young songwriter, gifted with an ethereal voice and the talent for writing honest observations of an ordinary world. Her melancholy and often times vulnerable songs are nicely contrasted by her humorous and engaging stage presence. Dubbed “Joni Mitchell meets Sarah Silverman,” Danielle tours nationally, has licensed songs to various tv shows and significantly understands and works new media on a generational level. Denver’s Westword described Danielle as, “cripplingly enchanting with lyrics telling the story of a generation coming of age in an age of uncertainty.”
