Don't ask Front Country what kind of music they play. Just listen.
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
string band 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".
