The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys have signed with California’s Randm Records to release Back To The Mountains, their first album of “outlaw bluegrass,” later this fall. They call their hard-charging, traditional sound “outlaw” as they see it as counter to the trend towards a smoother, less-ragged style in contemporary bluegrass today. You might also call it, “bringing the hillbilly back to hillbilly music.”
Randm Records focuses on independent, alternative music of many kinds. They had recently released the terrific Leaving This Town album from Tommy Brown and County Line Grass.
The new Po’ Ramblin’ Boys record is being mixed now for release before the end of 2015. C.J. Lewandowski is on mandolin, with Josh Rinkle on guitar, Jereme Brown on banjo, and Jasper Lorentzen on bass. Billy Hurt guests on fiddle.
