First/Last-You Me & Apollo

May 9, 2014

“You Me & Apollo started as a musical exploration of Colorado-born Brent Cowles. His first EP, How To Swim, How To Rot, was released in 2007 while attending school in Arizona. His inevitable return to Colorado summoned the 2011 release of his debut full-length, Cards With Cheats, bringing a full band sound with hints of doo-wop, soul, and alt-country.”

Check out the band at their official Website, Facebook, SoundCloud, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and BandCamp. Hailing from Colorado, the band is featured on the Paste 50 States Project and has just released their latest album, “Sweet Honey“. I want to thank songwriter Brent Cowles (Guitar/Vocals) for taking a few to participate in this edition of First/Last.

  • Least favorite concert?
  • I try to attend shows I’m going to enjoy but my least favorite concert ever played was a bank Christmas party or “Prom for Grown-ups” is what it felt like. We were pulled off stage after 3 songs. Though there was an open bar so maybe it wasn’t my least favorite.
  • Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • I’ve only been to Pittsburgh once but it certainly left an impression on me. The city has a very unique and old architectural beauty that is unlike any place I’ve ever been. I would love for You Me & Apollo to play music in Pittsburgh someday.

Thanks, Brent. Wold love if you ever make it out to Pittsburgh. Make sure you drop a line if you ever do.
