Americana music from Frontier Poets starts with a strong first chapter. They spent the last year shaping their unique sound and recording a dozen songs. Soon, Frontier Poets hits social media and radio with new music and videos. An EP and multiple singles and videos are scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2020. And later in the year Frontier Poets plans to release their first album. This new band’s unique take on this music is rooted in pure love for the genre. From song to song and from town to town, Frontier Poets hopes to elevate the souls of all who love Americana music. The band speaks on the topics of loneliness, hope, relationships, life’s everyday obstacles, and who we are, and aspire to be, as humans living in this crazy word. Here are a few random lyrics. “Always wild, run like a child, live, live like you love”. “Where do we go from here, naked we believed, standing on the beach”. “Wasn’t what you wanted but there’s nothing you can say”. “And as I go, I go on knowing that every war must end in peace”.
“If you’re a writer, you know that the stories don’t come to you – you have to go looking for them.” (Tom Waits)
Americana music today is all about the evolution and merging of many music genres from the 60’s through the present day. That includes folk music, country music, blues, folk rock, alternative country, country rock, roots rock, heartland rock, southern rock, singer-songwriter and more. Even skiffle music. In the early days, the genre included artists like Bob Dylan, The Byrds and The Band. Later, Tom Petty, The Travelling Wilbury’s, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Waits helped define the genre. And today Americana music is defined by artists like Milk Carton Kids, Mumford and Sons, I’m With Her and Hozier. Thing is, Frontier poets loves all of it.
