“Fans of modern acoustic music will find much to enjoy in their more experimental approach within the traditional bluegrass quintet.” - Bluegrass Today
As exciting a band on stage as they are in the studio, Front Country stands strong and tall in today's American roots music scene.
Although Front Country has a foundation in traditional music, they call their unique style “roots pop”, and it’s easy to agree with them. As you dig in, you might hear moments that feel like the classic rock of Fleetwood Mac or the Police, as well as the modern country sounds of the Dixie Chicks or Chris Stapleton.
Front Country is anchored by the pure power and touch of Melody Walker’s lead vocal. She brings an attack that has a hint of effortless irreverence while revealing brutal honesty and vulnerability in both singing and songwriting.
