Mile Hi

Boonie Mayfield

Boonie Mayfield boldly steps into psychedelic rock with his hazy hometown opus, “Mile Hi”; inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd and The Beatles. Welcoming listeners to the "303", Boonie sounds like a trippy airline captain on a distorted intercom bringing his passengers up to the high altitude and cannabis-legalized state of Colorado.

The guitar's blaring chords strike the soul and see-saws between dissonance and harmony, symbolizing the feelings of both fear and bliss while flying high above ground. During the first part of Boonie’s composition, the multi-instrumentalist navigates the ride on his own before going into a cruise control jam session with two childhood friends.

It’s clear that Boonie Mayfield’s core aim is to provide an experience for listeners rather than just a song throughout the 7 minutes and 20 seconds, which represents Denver’s other area code, “720".
