Bailey Elora

Bailey Elora

Bailey started to come down to Youth on Record’s Open Lab after school program to record acapella covers since 2016. Now she has performed all over Denver and has recently been nominated for best singer-songwriter in Westword Music Showcase 2019. If you would like to vote, click on the link: Westword2019. Bailey Elora is also a Youth on Record Music Ambassador and has been hosting a fundraiser show called An Evening with Bailey Elora and Friends that benefits Youth on Record. This year she will be accompanied by Freddy Zamora, Isaac Zamora, and Geoff Orwiler on stage. Be on the look out for the her performance at the Block Party!



Andre Jackson aka DRE

Dre’s music will make you turn up and make you think at the same time. Dre doesn’t write his lyrics due to him being visually impaired, but that doesn’t stop him from recording music. Dre has been recording songs at Youth on Record since 2015. When Dre records a new song he finds a beat and freestyles over it. Dre feels the beat and lets the sonics guide his words as he pieces together the concept of the song from scratch. Dre’s music is pure, raw emotion that comes from the heart. Check out Dre’s music here DREMUSIC. Look out for Dre at the block party and get ready to jump and turn up!!
