Cosmic Americana is the best way to describe the jangly and ambient atmosphere of Railway Gamblers. Originating on the Southside of Chicago in March 2014, the group has devoted their time to crafting a unique and original sound.
The core of the group consists of Brendan Folliard (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Matt Fricks (Lead Guitar), and Sean Wilmsen (Drums/Backing Vocals) - with additional bass and keyboard personnel.
With the guidance and expertise of top-tier recording engineers (notably Mike Hagler), their studio releases have generated a strong Midwest following, resulting in sold-out shows across the region and recognition from international media outlets.
From their influences rooted in folk music to their incorporation of modern rock, Railway Gamblers continue to generate a sound that may be difficult to identify as one solitary genre; but it's one that is palatable, honest, and engaging.
