"A ground-breaking, genre-shaking performance San Francisco-based group screwed up every tradition of the sound America gave to the world and remoulded it again" - Spalding Today UK

FRONT COUNTRY - ( www.frontcountryband.com ) - 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 and covers EP "Mixtape" are both out now!

Corporate Punk is a Boston-based pop/jam band fronted by singer/drummer Sean Trischka.

"San Francisco's Front Country has forged its own path in the bluegrass scene, coming from musical backgrounds of all genres and going on to win band competitions at festivals such as Telluride. They're a progressive bluegrass quintet. Their singer has this great, round, sultry, more rock-leaning tone and vocal attack that you don't typically hear in bluegrass."
- NPR, All Songs Considered

They somehow strike that perfect blend of soaring vocals, impressive playing and interesting song choices  - Fretboard Journal

"A ground-breaking, genre-shaking performance San Francisco-based group screwed up every tradition of the sound America gave to the world and remoulded it again" - Spalding Today UK

"Their music occupies a hinterland that extends much further than bluegrass, however, reaching into a beyond that at times makes them the missing link between Punch Brothers and the Penguin Café Orchestra and even extends to the prog rock of Family and King Crimson" - The Herald, Scotland UK
