Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! We’re heading back to Texas to hear the lonesome cowboy romp of the Whiskey Folk Ramblers, a collective of blues, folk, bluegrass and good ole rock ‘n roll. They tip their hats to the classic Spaghetti Westerns and borrow from the brass country soundtracks as inspiration. Their most recent record is the perfect amalgamation of the band’s sound. It’s called The Lonesome Underground.
I take a moment to talk with Tyler Rougeux, the vocalist, harmonica player, and guitar player behind the Whiskey Folk Ramblers. He shares his experiences on the road, going through tough lineup changes, and the classic roots where he finds his inspiration. But enough words, check out the tunes for yourself.
And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Whiskey Folk Ramblers!
Upcoming Tour Dates
04/17/15 – The Prophet Bar, Dallas, TX
