The Westbound Rangers

Hailing from Nashville via North Carolina, Virginia, Alabama and Texas, The Westbound Rangers are forging a new sound that crosses boundaries between Americana, Bluegrass, and Old-Time. The four piece string band, consisting of clawhammer banjo, mandolin, guitar and doghouse bass, has been turning heads since the band’s unassuming start in 2008. Music City provided the perfect artistic melting pot for the boys to embrace each other’s unique musical sensibilities. Some of the resulting strengths include a unique style of humor, genuine heart-felt originals, and strong vocals. The Rangers’ three part harmonies manage to preserve an energetic spirit that is often missing in modern vocal styles—bluegrass and other. This pursuit of energy and excitement led the Rangers to record their debut album completely live around three microphones in a living room. What came out is a literal “slice of time” that has the same raw feeling you would experience if the boys stepped right into your living room to spend some time with you. It’s this commitment to being real that binds the Rangers together and creates such a devoted following. The Rangers are currently making plans to record a second album this summer.
