A close-harmony duo who use homemade and quirky instrumentation to accompany their folk and country songs.

The Rough & Tumble are as easy to detect as a stray dog on your doorstep– and as difficult to send home. The dumpster-folk, thriftstore-Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler and their menagerie of classic folk and homemade instruments, have been hobbling around the country in their 16ft camper with their dogs since 2015, taking their songs to the far corners of the US and to the weird little towns they pass along the way. Written during a time of doggedly trying despite the odds and a self-proclaimed “year of honesty,” The Rough & Tumble will release their new studio album Howling Back at the Wounded Dog on September 6, 2019.
