A musician’s home is on the road traveling from town to town occupying every moment with the soundscapes of the highway. The vigor of the performance can overtake the space needed to create. The Music District offers a “home stop” on the road for touring musicians. Blind Pilot nourished their artistic side with a stay at the District for a few days while traveling through Colorado.
Two members of Blind Pilot, Israel Nebeker vocals and guitar and Ryan Dobrowski drummer and percussion, utilized the practice rooms for writing. They did a session of singing bowls and took some of the classes offered on the campus. They lived in the Airbnb apartment and rented bikes from the bike share.
They wrote songs, played new instruments, and lived like locals for just a moment while touring. They ended the week with a songwriting workshop, which was their community contribution for staying.

Israel Nebeker said in the workshop:
“Art is this amazing vehicle and it captures so much more than what we put into it.”
This week he put a great deal into his art.
The two band members expressed how there is no place in the country like the Music District. Israel and Ryan were blown away with the experience and felt it was something every musician must have the opportunity to do.
