We at the shadehouse believe that it isn't always about the art, or the money or the chicks. But, mainly it's about letting go, and having fun with the music. so grab the person to the right of you, grab the person to the left of you, or if you ain't got nobody, grab yourself and get rowdy!
Michael Ray Cano and the Casad brothers met in college at Trinidad Colorado in 2004. The three jammed together often for several years in the Trinidad open jam scene. The band officially formed in 2008 after the three coincidentally moved to Denver separately. In 2010 they settled on the name Herb n' Warfare.

After receiving an endorsement from D'Addario strings and achieving the 11th spot on AC Gavin charts, Vince Johnson’s music is best described as Funk Folk. According to one fan, "It's like listening to a male India.Arie with a sexy low voice who isn’t scared to use a falsetto with lyrics to match the highs and lows of the spectrum of human emotion."
Vince's sound is a combination of flamenco and folk guitar styles with a dash of hip hop rhythm. Emotion, whether straight forward or understated is what Vince is all about. His lyrics reflect the world that we live in and are thought provoking and heartfelt. “There is obviously some pain with the joy of life, and that's what I hope to portray.”
A Denver native, Vince toured with Up with People and then attended the Berklee College of Music, learning from and working with some of the world’s most accomplished musicians, producers, and songwriters. He moved to Minneapolis where he worked with many talented artists and musicians and then, after returning home to Denver, he began working with Danny Seraphine, Chicago’s former drummer. Their partnership led to recording Chocolate Soup, the debut album for the duo Lyric in collaboration with Grammy-award-winners Peter Fish, Joe Nicolo (President of Ruff House records). With performing, mixing, and mastering by legends like Bernie Grundman on the album and very little money behind it, Chocolate Soup entered Gavin AC radio at the 135th spot and topped out at the 11th spot within seven weeks.
After writing Chocolate Soup, Vince began writing for other local artists while completing his degree at University of Colorado at Denver. After a long wait, Vince Johnson has released "It's Alright", his first solo album.
