Play Wr!tes

Our play begins in the back of a crowded coffee shop, with an ad titled “Seeking lyricist/singer for a Greeley-based Alternative Rock band” and a new kid on the block looking to play the Northern Colorado stages - he just didn’t know how until now. Micah Wilborn responded to Troy Mott’s ad with a mediocre cover of The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside,” and the rest is history. With Troy on songwriting and guitar, and Micah on lyrics and vocals (and sometimes the megaphone, if you’re lucky), the two have produced an EP and multiple singles, been seen on stages around Greeley and Northern Colorado since their conception in December of 2018. Their sound is unique, and the live performance they strive for is theatrical in nature, and dramatic at heart. Honest storytelling doesn’t come from thin air, and without these two characters putting their stories on the line for their music, this play might’ve never been written. On the road since then, the band has picked up drummer Arthur Ioder and bassist Ellis Martinez, two incredible musicians who have added to the menagerie of sound. Stay tuned for the pulling aside of new curtains, the warming up of new spotlights, and a future of storytelling that reflects a reinvention of theatricality in today’s world.
