THE RAILSPLITTERS + FRONT COUNTRY to Play the Fox Theater

In 2013, only days after their debut CD release, backed by an impressive $10,000+ Kickstarter campaign, THE RAILSPLITTERS performed at Rockygrass and earned the title of "Best New Band." They would soon become a tried-and-true staple of the Colorado music scene. In 2015, The Railsplitters went full-time and released its second album, The Faster It Goes.

Since then, on the strength of their material -which carries enough mesmerizing bluegrass to appeal to the purists, enough freshness to land on the official Spotify Indie Bluegrass playlist and enough pop hooks to crossover to listeners who've never bought or streamed a bluegrass album-The Railsplitters have performed at some of the most prestigious bluegrass (and not bluegrass) festivals in the country, including Delfest, Green River Festival, Salmon Jam, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and Rockygrass; toured the UK twice and have opened for or co-billed with The Steeldrivers, Trout Steak Revival, Noam Pikelni, Aoife O'Donovan, Milkdrive, Dustbowl Revival and more.

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.
