It starts with 5 players. Each by their own right excellent singer-songwriters – with influences ranging from 1920’s Delta Blues, to 60’s Rock N Roll, to punk rock and Bluegrass, all the way to the likes of Bob Marley and Jack Johnson – a band of influences able to play together, sing together, and blend styles into one new and original sound. Banjo, mandolin, guitar, and upright bass – surprisingly full and dynamic, with as much sonic variety as there are members of the band.
