COLORADO NEW SCHOOL AMERICANA
The band’s recently released 2015 album titled Eat The Moon proves that they consistently bring us “a self-assured vision of American music, rooted in tradition, but pointing to new creative directions that make it vital and relevant in today’s modern world…” Eat The Moon is currently a Top 10 Album on the Folk DJ Charts, with album titled track "She Wants to Eat the Moon" climbing within the Top 20. You can also catch Del McCoury spinning the hand picked album on his SiriusXM show Bluegrass Junction.
Colorado’s FY5 proudly swim in the deep currents of American music-classic bluegrass, tried-and-true honky tonk, country swing and skillfully spun folk tales. While their sound evokes timelessness, it is decidedly contemporary, well-traveled 21st century sensibility that informs their songwriting. Their tunes draw on the bumps, bruises and laugh lines earned when we find ourselves in the “bogs” of back roads, dive bars and long, lonesome nights.
