Spreading Love in the form of Music!

Four creative forces playing Experience Rock in the northern Colorado area.

 

Experience Rock: n. 1. A style of music only truly gaining style through the perspective of the listener 2. A musical performance eliciting the same feeling as listening to a radio station

"Yo, have you heard that new Experience Rock band, Fat Stallion?"

 

RILEY is one of the co-founders of the band, and is the only member without traditional schooling in the sonic arts. He was born in Laramie, Wyoming and grew up in Kansas City, Kansas re-writing Beatles songs. In 2013, he moved to Laramie, Wyoming to study financial management. It was there that he met JACK ELLIOTT, and the two of them searched for the right musicians to add to the band. After several failed line-ups, they invited J LIGHT and EMMA DAWN to join the band, and the rest is history...

 

JACK ELLIOTT is the other co-founder of the band, and produces most of the independent releases for the band. He was born and raised in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Originally a classically-trained cellist, he picked up guitar in 2007 with guidance from his father, who was a well-established Western/Swing player in the community. Being in and out of dozens of projects and bands over the course of his adolescence, JACK ELLIOTT eventually started to focus more on playing bass, both in local orchestras and personal musical projects. He produced a solo album, "En Rapport," chronicling this journey that he temporarily released in 2013 (good luck finding it though!). After that, he moved to Laramie, Wyoming to pursue a degree in Music Education. It was there that he met RILEY through a mutual friend, and the two of them put together various groups of musicians under various band names, until they came to the dream team: FAT STALLION.

 

LIGHT is the friendly 'neigh'borhood philosopher and arguably the best drummer in the band. He spends his free time woodworking and training in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu with JACK ELLIOTT and EMMA DAWN (when he's not shredding of course). LIGHT was born in Fort Collins, CO, but grew up in Laramie and Riverton, Wyoming. It was there that he began the journey of rhythmic enlightenment. He attended Central Wyoming College in 2010 and received an Associate's degree in the arts, and then transferred to Laramie, Wyoming. He met the rest of the band during a vocal rehearsal in the music building, offering his percussive expertise.

 

EMMA DAWN is final piece to the puzzle, being the last musician to join the Fat Stallion team. She was born in Rock Springs, Wyoming, where she spent her formative years learning as much music as she could. Starting in various choirs and playing violin in the orchestra, she was eventually drawn to the dark side, picking up the trumpet. EMMA DAWN moved to Laramie, Wyoming in 2012 to pursue a Music Education degree. After a while she shifted priorities, choosing to focus more on her own playing and composing. This was around the time when she started playing with Fat Stallion, and became an official member in May of 2015. She spends her non-musical time painting, drawing, knitting and crocheting, or whatever other craft draws her interest.
