Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

In case you haven't noticed, we're all about local music. Surely, that's no huge revelation to anyone. After all, we do spend the bulk of our lives immersed in the sounds and vibrations being created here, absorbing the music and offering up our take -- good and bad.

Beyond the critiques, though, each week, we also get to tell the stories of all the interesting people who are making what amounts to the soundtrack of our lives. After the jump, we've organized all the links to the individual profiles and Rough Mixes Q&As that ran in Backbeat over the past year in chronological order, so that you catch up on anything you might've missed.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
