We’re a Country Blues band from Cincinnati, OH mixing Bluegrass drive, Honky Tonk swing, Old Time fiddling, Rockabilly riffs, and whatever else spurs our inspiration. We meld it all together with traditional vocal harmonies, tight arrangements, and hot picking, all the while maintaining a strong focus on lyric writing and story telling.
The songs are stories of travelling, love, temptation, heartbreak, family, banjo pickin’ tobacco spittin’ women, gas station sushi, and so much more…
We’ve released a handful of self recorded demos and two studio albums, the Free Showers EP in 2014 and American Dreams, which came out in May 2018 to very positive reception.
”American Dreams is vibrant and vital. I have a strong suspicion that American Dreams will be there at the end of the year when I recap the best of 2018.” – TwangriLa
