Dirt Road Ramblers Lay It Down Right in Studio 5

Ramblin’ gamblin’ folk as they were, the Dirt Road Ramblers found their way into the studio this week for one night only, bearing with them the thunder of the Wild West and a sound that reciprocates. The group’s powerfully down-home Western style tells tales of lost love and outlaw escapades, guaranteed to being a tear to the eyes of the most rough-and-tumble cow wrangler sitting fireside at the Ponderosa. Haunting background harmonies, supplied by back up vocalists Myra Joan and Angie Frisk, hover delicately amidst a tight-as-f**k rhythm section and the immensely burly bass of lead vocalist Joe Hysell, a voice with enough naturally raw country gusto to shake the foundation of the Grand Tetons themselves.

Jake Anderson on the Drums.

Dan Neal on the Acoustic Electric Guitar.

The Dirt Road Rambler’s may roost in the Twin Cities, but they boast an inarguably authentic Western sound with a tendency to kick listener ass with nostalgia, balladry, and instrumental finesse. Don’t believe me? Check out their latest album release, 2014’s The Legend of Charley White. Prove me wrong, sucker.

Joe Anderson played guitar.

Backup singers are Myra Joan and Angie Frisk.
