Front Country Brings Indie-Grass Sound to House of Blues

Featured Audio

The acclaimed quintet Front Country originally hails from San Francisco, but its sound is more in tune to the hills of Appalachia.  Tonight (1/11) the self-proclaimed "indie-grass" band, now working in Nashville, brings its acoustic rhythms to the House of Blues Cleveland on East 4th Street opening for the Michigan-based group Greensky Bluegrass

Singer-songwriter Melody Walker fronts the band and writes most of the group's lyrics, which are leaning towards more relationship-based themes for the group's upcoming recording.

Walker says she had trouble finding her way into the style at first.

"The relationship-song genre can be a really broad thing.  It could be between friends, it can be a business relationship, all kinds of things.  A relationship even can be a metaphor for politics."

You can hear for yourself when Front Country's new album drops on April 7.
