We're a home-brewed group out of the redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains, blending a high octane / cask-fermented feel, purdy harmonies, and a deep love of all rootsy genres of music. Rock, country, bluegrass, blues, jam band and folk all swirl together in our magical musical brew. We mix our original songs with some covers by anyone from Tom Petty, Wilco, Neil Young, and Devil Makes Three to old school tunes like Hank Williams, and The Carter Family … We're a bunch of good-time friends playing good-time music.

Multi-instrumentalist Ben Pearl grew up in the Central Valley of California. A fan of the delta breeze, he enjoys the occasional midnight t-shirt weather and long walks on the creek.

About Joshua Lowe:

Joshua's dad had records, lots and lots of records. And he had free reign. At an early age Joshua began to explore the history of American music. From Count Basie to Fats Dominio, Hank Williams to Hoyt Axton, Robert Johnson to Willie Nelson; Dylan, Parton, Holly, Presley, Wainwright, Cash; The Supremes, The Dead, The Beatles, The Blasters; Folk, Doo Wop, Big Band, Country & Western, Rhythm & Blues, Rock & Roll.

Sitting in front of his dad's record collection, digging through the stacks till an album cover caught his eye; the scratch of the needle; the brief moment of calm before the first blast of sound; the hours spent around the turntable truly was the beginning of his passion and connection to music.
