Co-Founder • Director of Photography
Tired of playing an electric drum-kit to appease his apartment neighbors, Jason found the coolest roommates in all of Denver, and signed a lease for a house with a beautifully unfurnished basement. The house became known as The Salt Lick. The basement flooded and became known as The Pond. The idea was to create a subterranean digital platform for Denver's eclectic, but still nationally unrecognized music scene. Jason spent the summer of 2020 outfitting The Pond into a live recording & video studio. He's responsible for all the pretty shots & lighting that make Songs from The Pond the audio-visual experience that it is. Jason spends most of his free time skiing. He's also a filmmaker, musician, and photographer. His documentary work has been screened at several national & international film festivals.

Andrea worked to transform the basement from a damp dungeon to the colorful scene it is today. She is responsible for painting the mural, hanging decorations, as well as managing social media, cooking, and baking goodies for the bands, sending out the e-mail newsletter, and keeping the team up to date on tasks. Other hobbies include backpacking, climbing, and currently learning how to ski.
With an eclectic background ranging from Mechanical Engineering, painting, cooking, baking, and running the Denver Engineeers without Borders Chapter, Andrea has been able to apply her organizational, project management, and art skills to help make The Salt Lick what it is today and what it could be in the future.
It’s no small challenge getting good sound out of a basement from the early 1900s. Chris spends a lot of time adjusting the levels to get the audio just right, and he enjoys the unique challenges that each band brings. On top of that, Chris is an amazing bassist and guitarist. You can find him subbing in for some bands around town or working on his psych rock solo project, Silver Screen Fantasy, under which he has released one full length album as well as two EPs. The project explores self-reflection and includes ideas of escapism and fantasy concepts which he aims to share with this audience through psychedelic soundscapes.
