Leadville Cherokee is a rock band from Colorado that mixes the elements of rock, funk, country, and crustpunk with pure energy. The band counts Ween, Paul Cauthen, The Steeldrivers, and Bill Withers as guiding influences.

Leadville Cherokee was formed in 2009 by guitarist Mark Nierneberger and Pete Albrect, adding Brian Carter on bass and Zack Kochetta on drums along the way. The band has been active in the high country of Colorado, typically playing whitewater festivals such as Royal Gorge Whitewater Festival, Paddlefest, and headlining FIBArk in 2021. The band has also headlined esteemed venues from Buena Vista’s Lariat, Boulder’s Fox Theatre, and more.

The band released album “How to Build a Fire” in 2015, with a music review by Brian Rill of Colorado Central Magazine writing “Leadville Cherokee’s style of rock is immensely polished… an array of genres”, and has newly released its highly-anticipated “Been A Long Time” in June 2023.
