They call their music Trashcan Americana. They mix traditional styles of American music such as bluegrass, country, delta blues, and folk with the aggressive attitude of punk rock. Their lyrics are thoughful and unique, often quite haunting and spooky, in a fun, rural, campfire-story-teller fashion.

Have you performed in front of an audience?
The band is ever expanding and growing. Their goal is to play everywhere they are made welcome. The band must be experienced live in order to get the full effect of what they're doing musically.
