Overview: Thoreau once said, "Most folks lead lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with their song still in them." You might expect most 23 year old men to be spending their free time chasing women or closing down bars, but Stang Gappa is on a mission. He is fervently pushing the boundaries of a full-scale, traditional country-music revival, yet with enough contemporary distinctiveness to appeal to a broad range of listeners, both young and old alike. Growing up just outside of Denver, Stang was influenced early on by the doctrinal roots of legends such as Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. By the age of 13, he was handcrafting songs reminiscent of his heroes from yesteryear. Starting with his debut EP release "Colorado Sky", Stang is already catching some major local and regional attention. Although a newcomer on the Colorado scene, Stang's lofty ambitions and unyielding work ethic mean he will surely leave his chronicles behind before he's six feet under.
