Allegedly founded at a bible camp, and born in the back valleys of Western Wisconsin, Them Coulee Boys craft a brand of Americana that blends punk, bluegrass, and rock & roll. Somewhere underneath the energy, the exuberance, the wit, and the passion of Them Coulee Boys lies a heart. It's a heart filled with sincerity, honesty, and the will to make the world a better place. This heart is not only evident in every song, but also in Them Coulee Boys as a whole. These songs are meant for dancing, for excitement, but are also for thought, and for the quiet moments. Them Coulee Boys seek to balance the high with the low, the happy with the sad, and the love with pain. It's how we live our lives, and they make music that reflects that. |
Founded in late 2013, Them Coulee Boys have quickly become a force on the Midwest music scene. Soren Staff, Beau Janke, Jens Staff, Neil Krause, and Patrick Phalen IV work together as a well-oiled alt-folk machine to craft songs and live shows that have impressed audiences nationwide.
In the winter of 2018, Them Coulee Boys set to capture a new sound. They gathered at the famed Pachyderm Studios (Nirvana, Son Volt, PJ Harvey) in Cannon Falls, MN to record with their friend Dave Simonett (Trampled By Turtles). Their as of yet untitled record builds on their ever evolving sound, while capturing the live element Them Coulee Boys are known for. The album is framed as a journey of sorts, starting in a volatile place, and ending in acceptance. This is the sound of a band that has grown into the sound theyve been working towards, while keeping the sincerity they built themselves on. Look for their new record in 2019.
Them Coulee Boys have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some incredible acts including: John Fogerty (of Creedence Clearwater Revival), Trampled By Turtles, Sam Bush, Yonder Mountain String Band, Pert Near Sandstone, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Fruition, and many more.
David Quinn got his start playing drums around Chicago which lead straight onto touring with other bands across the country. In a large wandering sabbatical toward the west coast, he wrote and recorded his own work while traveling through the passing trees and winding elevations. Even with his love of the brisk mountain desert heat, his kindred roots brought him back to the midwest, eventually landing him back in Chicago. Armed with a large catalog of singles, he connected with the revered Andrija Tokic - of Alabama Shakes, Luke Bell, and The Deslondes - at Bomb Shelter Studios and gathered key players to create his first LP, Wandering Fool. In June 2018, David Quinn joined Dave Roe - Johnny Cashs bassist, Jimmy Lester - drummer for Billy Joe Shaver and Micah Hulscher - keyboardist for Margo Price, down in Nashville to create this twangy masterpiece. Blending these iconic musicians with his Midwest country style has shaped this first studio album into a unique twist on dreamy classic country, something weve all been missing.
Today, David Quinn is joined by local Chicago musicians playing upbeat shows throughout the city and its bordering lands. This grassy trail of a story - turned studio album, is set to launch in 2019 with a handful of singles releasing up until the spring premiere. They can be found playing large stages while also popping up at your local dive when the mood sets it right.
