Sleepwell
The members of Sleep Well do not sleep well. If you are also having problems sleeping, they recommend melatonin, warm milk, and buying all of their stuff.
Biography
The members of Sleep Well were brought together by forces of cosmic intervention, who, in their great wisdom, knew that the combination of these four souls in songwriting orgitude would result in music that the world truly needed to hear.

They've been collaborating since sometime in 2012.
They play out regularly in the Denver area, and are currently recording their first LP.
Description
Sleep Well functions as a collaborative songwriting collective. At the beginning of every band practice, they partake in an ancient Native American ritual which allows them to combine their consciousnesses so that they become one unified super being. Once unified in super being-ness Sleep Well writes music.

Sleep Well's music is heart felt, and genuine. Their lyrics have been said to be "like if Shakespeare had Bukowski's liver, and this liver had insomnia, and wrote when it couldn't sleep." Their music forces you to look at life square in the eye, and say "what up," and get to know it a little better. They manage to combine stark seriousness with a vaguely bleak sense of humor. The result is sometimes wry, sometimes sarcastic, sometimes inspiring, sometimes unrepentantly joyful, but always beautiful; just like you.
