He won Two Félix at the Industry Gala L’Adisq for Best World Music Album and Best Producer of the Year. Boogat has earned international recognition mainly in Mexico and the United States where tours and festival appearances have increased significantly since 2013. Some of his songs have also made their way to Hollywood, including placements in blockbusters like the TV series “Homeland” and the film “The Forger” with John Travolta.

“You don’t need to speak Spanish to understand the sexiness of this song’s hook or its outrageously hip-grinding beat. Turn your swag on!” NPR (USA): NPR Music’s 100 Favorite Songs of 2011
Supaman’s performance combines Native American culture, humor, and urban hip hop culture which dazzles audiences, captivates listeners and breaks down stereotypes. As a member of the “Apsaalooke Nation,” Supaman makes his home on the Crow reservation in Montana. The humble Native American dancer and hip hop artist has dedicated his life to empowering youth and educating listeners with a message of hope through culture and music. In 2011, he won the North American Indigenous Award for outstanding hip hop album.

Formed in 2012, Santa Fe-based Hot Honey harmonizes the singing talents of Lucy Barna (guitar and banjo), Lori Ottino (melodica) and Paige Barton (banjo and guitar). Blending bittersweet, feisty and playful emotions, their motto is: “Old Time Class Meets New Time Sass.” All the members write their original songs “that project a strong-woman-kicking-out-your-door vibe.” They swept the Santa Fe Reporter’s 2013 poll as the “Best New Band,” “Best Country/Alternative Country Band” and “Best Rock Band.” (Madrid Artist Quarterly)
DIM CITY LIGHTS
Thomas Roscoe started Dim City Lights with one goal in mind, to bring light to a dark world by writing catchy songs, with a message that people could relate to and sing along with. After recording their full length debut "The Careless", the band moved to Nashville where they recorded their professionally produced EP "The Unseen" which included the single "Love Me Like That".

A singer/songwriter from Durango, CO, crosses over genres from Rock to Country. But it’s not just the music and captivating vocals that make him sought after for live performances. “He is a pure entertainer. Drawing audiences in from city to city with his comedic personality, improv-lyrics and songs you love to sing! But the pleasant surprise with a Dave Mensch show is his ability to make you feel at home no matter what venue you’re in. A talented vocalist and songwriter with an extensive music library.” (Phil Duhon - CEO Oscar’s Tejon Street) Performing 200 to 250 shows a year regularly across Colorado and New Mexico… he is always on tour. Three albums have been released on iTunes.
