The Dirty River Boys

Calling what they do "outlaw folk American," the El Paso, Texas-born band the Dirty River Boys generate an energetic blend of tight narrative songs, bluegrass drive, multi-part vocal harmonies, gospel passion, and a solid dose of rock & roll attitude into a potent mix that is all the more amazing for being entirely acoustic.

Members Nino Cooper, Marco Gutierrez, Travis Stearns, and Colton James are all multi-instrumentalists, trading off guitars, banjos, mandolins, fiddles, harmonicas, snare drums, and the cajon box while adding three- and four-part vocal harmonies to tightly written songs full of memorable characters and stories. The band released two EPs, Long Cold Fall and Train Station, before delivering a full-length album, Science of Flight, in 2012. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
