“Front Country blend everything from high-lonesome mountain music to new-wave power pop, newgrass picking, oldgrass harmonies, and just plain glorious musicality. This is Americana at its best: music with deep roots and wide-ranging vision” – Popatunes
“Think Brandi Carlile, with a dose of Bill Frisell, and some electro-pop thrown in for good measure, and you’ve got a good idea about the clever sounds of Front Country.”—Chris Coomey, The Colorado Sound
Front Country has a sound with the body of a bluegrass ensemble, the soul of a rock band and the mind of a classical chamber group. This San Francisco quintet has been called “passionately intoxicating” and “orchestral.” In 2013, Front Country won both the RockyGrass and Telluride band contests and they have been in demand ever since. Their 2017 album, Other Love Songs, showcases their soaring vocals, impressive playing, and fine songwriting.
