Yonder Mountain String Band: 
Rain Still Falls

Yonder Mountain String Band has always played music by its own set of rules. Bending bluegrass, rock and countless other influences that the band cites, Yonder has pioneered a sound of their own. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance but they’ve created their own music that transcends any genre. Dave Johnston points out “What could be more pure than making your own music.” Yonder’s sound cannot be classified purely as “bluegrass” or “string music” but rather it’s an original sound created from “looking at music from [their] own experiences and doing the best job possible.”

Los Angeles’ Little Red Lung began in 2007 as a solo project of singer/keyboardist Zoe-Ruth Erwin, and was immediately seeded as a dramatic, dynamic, and genre-defying musical exhibition, performing in small avant-indie venues across the city. The following year, after an extensive eastern U.S. tour, she took an extended sabbatical to the foothills of East Tennessee, stirring the production pot that would eventually form the roots of their debut record.
