It's such a satisfying feeling being able to support local artists pushing past the boundaries of the Denver music scene. Being the music nerds we are, we get excited when artists bend the rules when it comes to genre norms. Public Safety is one band that is shedding a whole new light on gritty soul music.
The group was originally founded during college in Charleston, SC by Denver-native Bear Busher and classmate Jimmy Jeter. The two returned to the Centennial state with one goal: Follow the dream. The funky, four-piece band is made possible with help from the smooth vocals delivered by lead vocalist & frontman Bear Buscher, tasty guitar-hooks played by Jimmy Jeter, groovin’ bass lines performed by Ethan Desmond, and rounding it all out with crispy rhythms on drums, Lem Williams.
After dropping their latest single “Two Years Later”, the band has been on the road the past two months promoting their latest EP, LUA. The five track EP is full of jazzy, funky tracks. The album centers around life experiences of lead singer, Bear Busher, with an emphasis on his journey in finding the good and bad in life.
Public Safety is closing out their East Coast "The Cook Out Tour" right here in the Mile High City at Gary Lee's Motor Club & Grub on South Broadway on Saturday, April 14th. But if that's too spur-of-the-moment for you, Public Safety will hit the stage at Bohemian Biergarten in Boulder on April 28th, and at Ophelia's Electric Soapbox with Silver and Smoke on May 17th.
LUA is available now on Apple Music, Spotify, Soundcloud, and other streaming services.
“The band’s style is young, hip, and funky style fresh.”

"Funk-rockers, Public Safety took to the stage next owning it from the minute they walked on. Lead singer, Bear Buscher demands attention be given to their performance with his powerful vocals and swift movements across the stage. They played many originals as well as some covers, including a crowd favorite “Pony.” Public Safety was a great addition to the show!"
“Its poppy delivery is supported effortlessly with deep bass lines of a funk and reggae shake blend. It’s no wonder the act found itself opening up for a bubbly Bernie Sanders once, and
continues on a path with competitions and headlining gigs. This is the type of stuff warmer weather is all about.”
