Although rooted in traditional bluegrass and old time music, The Railsplitters are pushing the boundaries of those genres in every sense. With their lush harmonies, instrumental virtuosity and non-conformist songwriting, The Railsplitters deftly demonstrate what happens when musical influences ranging from samba to hip hop merge with traditional Appalachian music. Hailing from Boulder, CO, the band features Lauren Stovall providing lead vocals, Dusty Rider on banjo, Peter Sharpe on mandolin, Joe D'Esposito on fiddle and Jean-Luc Davis on double bass.
"The Railsplitters are building their own links with listeners, continuing to push traditional bluegrass boundaries while staying true to the genre's roots-one song, one note, one memorable riff, and one heartfelt harmony at a time." - David MacPherson, No Depression Magazine (print edition)
