What started as a group of friends playing bluegrass in San Francisco's Mission District has morphed into a touring powerhouse of song and sound, transcending their humble stringband roots. Front Country's dynamic instrumental textures take flight with grace and gravitas while rooted in the relentlessly soulful vocals of lead singer-songwriter Melody Walker. Along with mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz, guitarist Jacob Groopman, violinist Leif Karlstrom and bassist Jeremy Darrow, this quintet has been called "passionately intoxicating" and "orchestral" and Melody's bluesy vocals have been described as "rafter-shaking". Seldom traditional, always original, Front Country's new album Sake of the Sound is out now.

So far, 2016 has been a busy year for Front Country.  With two European Tours and several festival appearances back in the states at staples such as ROMP Bluegrass Roots & Branches Festival, Red Wing Roots Music Festival, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, and The Americana Music Festival.

Front Country also released a highly anticipated Mixtape Covers EP earlier this year.  The EP followed the band's debut studio album Sake of the Sound.  NPR featured the title track from that record in their recent show previewing the Americana Music Festival.  Front Country will continue a rigorous tour schedule through the end of 2016, and fans can look out for a new studio album coming in 2017.

Catch Front Country on tour this fall, including a couple Colorado shows October 21st in Lyons, CO and October 22nd in Denver, CO.
