Substitute Creature is the latest manifestation of songwriter Collin O’Toole, comprised of inveterate performers of the Denver scene. Substitute Creature breaks hearts with each performance, keening with Jeff Buckley like grace through idiosyncratic entirely melting compositions on tastefully effected electric guitar.
Their first group recording, 'Sinking In', was tracked primarily with Engineer Todd Wilcox at Halogen Sound, and was finished at Moon Magnet Studios with Producer/Engineer/Artist/DJ Reed Fuchs of local favorites Décollage, Bun Bun, and Moon Hammer. ‘Sinking In’ is available all major digital platforms.
