"Ryan Russell’s original music defies any specific genre with a mixture of folk, blues, classic rock, and his own singer/songwriter style, which shines within a hint of Jimi Hendrix. Ryan started out in Oakdale California, and now lives in Modesto California, where he settled down to record his most recent album, ‘The Lonesome Traveler’. This album is a masterpiece from beginning to end, and should most definitely be on your list of albums to acquire! We had the fortunate pleasure of hearing him live during a Thursday Night Ramble." -Wayne Campbell, Threelle Productions.
The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit
Take two Americana singer-songwriters, an indie-rock veteran of a drummer, country-born bassist, and metal-bred pedal steel player, and what do you get: the rough-hewn yet driftwood-smooth; rebel-headed, but heart-of-gold sound of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit. The outfit includes singer-songwriters Willy Taylor and Chris Doud, drums and art Aaron Burtch, Taylor Webster Bass and vocals, and Multi-instrumentalists, Matt Cordano and Chandler Pratt. Any Outfit member may tell you that it’s plenty just to be at the pinnacle of a local music scene embracing roots and Americana music, but, as one recent convert put it, “the rest of America needs to hear this noise.” Likened to anything from Old Crow Medicine Show and The Avett Bros. to Asleep at the Wheel, Bob Wills and even Neil Young (depending on which live set you happen to catch) they most often defy categorization, usually settling for some hybrid of Americana, folk, rock, bluegrass, and that sweet, old country & western. They describe their efforts as trying to make good, honest, insightful music, that’s not afraid of a good time and a little fun.
The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit has been recording and performing original music since 2004. They have two successful record releases under their belts, and their third Album “Old Excuses” just released and getting rave reviews. The contagious enthusiasm of their live show, however, is what keeps their fans coming back to see them over and over again. Playing venues such as The Great American Music Hall, The Independent, and The Fillmore in SF, as well as playing festivals like, The Strawberry Music Festival, and Kate Wolf Music Festival, and touring through several states consistently over the last few years, their fan-base continues to grow. Their choice instrumentation, original material, and strong cohesion on stage has left many spectators with the lasting impressions of both fine song-craft and a rare live-music experience.
The Poor House Millionaires are an acoustic trio comprised of long time Modesto musicians, Earl Matthews Vocals (Big Earl and the Cryin' Shame), Nathan Ignacio Harmonica and Guitar (house of Orange) and Dr. Blue Guitar and Mandolin (Bad Medicine). The sound of the band comes straight from American roots music, Blues, Folk and Country.
