A Moment To Arrive

If it's your first festival sober or your 37th, if you're seeking a little community around navigating a concert environment substance free, or if you're even a little sober curious,  join us for a moment to arrive at FoCoMX as musicians, volunteers, fans, & industry workers who are in recovery, opting-out, or considering a lifestyle change.

Bio: Alysia Kraft
Hey, I'm Alysia and I'm a songwriter, performer, and producer in recovery. This past January marks six years of sobriety for me, and there isn't a day that passes that I'm not grateful for the freedom that I get to experience taking this path of significantly less destruction. When I started to confront the fact that I needed to get sober and needed help, I looked to other sober musicians in the community for a sign that recovery might be possible for me too. I valued their visibility and willingness to speak openly about their experience so much, and now that I get to experience the benefit of being really present with my music, I'd love to be able to be present for others in the struggle or recovery as well


Bio: Brian Johanson
Hello, I’m Brian Johanson, singer, songwriter and father in recovery. I started my music career in Fort Collins 20 years ago, and it almost ended because of my addiction. I knew I had a problem, but I didn’t know how to deal with it. I was fortunate enough to hit my rock bottom and find the support I needed in recovery and in the music community. I have been writing, performing and collaborating sober for the last 9 years, and I’ve found my music, career and relationships are so much more full, weird and rewarding. I am passionate about sobriety, music and sharing these experiences with others.
