Javastop coffeehouse is starting a monthly series to feature original, acoustic music in their warm, inviting, and intimate listening-room setting. The kickoff event will be Sunday evening, November 18, and will feature an all-acoustic performance by Tilia Americana.
Admission is free, but a hat will be passed and donations are strongly encouraged to help support local and regional music and art.
About the artists: Tilia Americana's bold, genre-spanning original music draws influence from folk, blues, rock, r&b, country and Americana styles, and is notable for use of alternative voicings, non-standard tunings and time signatures, creative arrangements, and beautiful instrumental harmonization. Their lyrics address widely varied themes from the nature of the universe to the nature of human connection, and draw inspiration from literature, art, science, mathematics, folklore, and the natural world.
Tilia Americana released their debut album, "Now What?" in 2017 and is planning a second recording project for 2019.
Javastop is Longmont's original coffee house. Located at the corner of 3rd and Main, they serve a variety of delicious and tempting goodies, all made in house, and feature drinks not typically available at most coffee shops. As comfortable as a good friend's home, Javastop is a beloved spot to meet, eat & art.
Tilia Americana is honored to join ten other Longmont bands and 10 solo acts at Bootstrap Brewing Company for the inaugural LOCOfest, a celebration of music of and from Longmont.

The evening starts with Francis and the Wolf, an American rock and roll band founded on love for a solid groove, melodic guitars and a song that has something to say. This band of nomads settled down in Northern Colorado's front range looking for a place to dig in and create. You can hear streams of Roots, Folk, Blues and Southern Rock embedded in their sound as topics of real life in modern America fuel the energy of their performance.
Flynn & The Electric Co. combines the powerful music and sometimes sly, sometimes heartbreaking, always insightful lyrics of the acoustic Flynn & Co with a powerhouse rock and roll sound.
Tilia Americana is celebrating the release of its debut studio album, “Now What?” This energetic, bold, and genre-spanning collection of original music is difficult to put neatly in a box. While the lyrics address widely varied themes from the nature of the universe to the nature of human connection, and draw inspiration from literature, art, science, mathematics, folklore, and the natural world, make no mistake, this is no quiet, delicate indie-folk band. Their music is notable for creative and engaging musical arrangements influenced by folk, yes, but also by rock and roll, blues, r&B, country, indie/grunge, doo-wop, and other Americana styles. Deep, resonant, contralto vocals provide a refreshing take on modern female-fronted indie acts.
The album was produced by Taylor Sims (Spring Creek; Bonnie & the Clydes) and Mark Venezia (Wind Over the Earth; Solid State Rocket); recorded, engineered and mixed by Mark Venezia and Jesse Zimmerman at Wind Over The Earth studios in Longmont, Colorado; and mastered by Jim Wilson Mastering. It features the contributions of talented musicians from all over the Denver metro area and serves as a foundational example of the musicianship and artistic creativity that is earning Longmont a well-deserved reputation as the “songwriting factory of the Front Range.”
Tilia Americana got its start as a songwriting partnership and has grown into a full band featuring Jeannie on vocals, Andy on guitar, Kalin on bass, Michelle on violin, and Tony on drums.

We've been on a hiatus while we get the basic tracks done on our recording, but we're jonesing to play out, so we're gonna sneak down to Denver to share a couple of songs for Songwriter night at Stem Ciders, this month hosted by our friend Tim Ostdiek. Tim's got a great bunch of musicians lined up for the evening, including Antonio Lopez, Shanna Hoar, and Maya Bennett from the Longmont/Boulder area. And proceeds from the evening will benefit Girls Rock Denver, whose mission is to empower young women, girls and gender nonconforming youth by putting instruments in their hands and unveiling what they already possess in their feet, fingertips, vocal cords, hearts, and minds.
If you happen to be in Denver Monday, Stem Ciders is going to be the place to be!
