With Dragondeer, Eric Halborg finds new inspiration in old sounds

Eric Halborg is best known in Denver music for his work fronting the Swayback, a hard-driving rock band that has toured the country and attained unusual success here at home. He's got another band these days; called Dragondeer, it's an outlet for the kinds of blues and jam bands he grew up on outside of Chicago. Dragondeer's debut EP is out this week; read more about the band and the secret hippie behind it in this week's music feature, now posted on the Backbeat blog.
