Wolverine Farm Publishing and Wolverine Farm Publick House strive to be valuable resources for local performers. In order to better serve the music and artist community and to encourage individual artists to interact with one another and build a strong network, we present the Musician in Residence (MUIR) program. The music residency hosts four artists for a three month period, holding space for exploration, experimentation, and collaboration! These concerts are held upstairs (or outside in the summer) every Wednesday at 6pm and open to the public. We encourage tips and donations to the musicians.

Anthony Arras has been exploring his music in different ways over the last couple of years, experimenting with different bands, sounds, instruments and absorbing all that he has been able to. “This residency is about our willingness to be vulnerable for our art and the impact that vulnerability has. I look forward to sharing my songs and their stories, running a love song workshop for Valentines day and learning from, being inspired by the other residents this winter.”

Elke was born and brought up in the Netherlands, only moving to Colorado a few years ago. She learned to play the guitar and piano as a child, and is continuously searching for alternative and creative arrangements.
Over the years, music became a vehicle for self-exploration and understanding situations, as well as a method of meditation. Elke’s lyrics are central in her music, often binding together thoughts, feelings, and memories. Her sound has been described as ethereal and melancholic indie-folk.
