Since the release of their 2008 debut album, The Orion Songbook, Frontier Ruckus has gone on to become one of the most authentic and intimately cherished voices of Michigan life in the 21st century. Garnering a dedicated following across the United States and Europe through years of relentless touring, the band stands at the completion of its 5th LP—recorded in Nashville with Wilco founding member Ken Coomer on drums and production.

"Their songs are full of rich, rural details: frozen lakes, swaying trees, highway lights glowing in the deep night."
- Rolling Stone

"Frontier Ruckus brings a contemporary angle to its music—eschewing traditional tales of trains, whiskey, and rambling for reflections on suburbia, family and 'life on the edge of the interstate.'"
- NPR

"...one of the most interesting bands currently doing business in the Midwest."
- AllMusic

"...a level of top-notch songwriting most groups never attain on a greatest hits compilation."
- PopMatters

"...piercingly sincere portraits of romance and youth, ripe with close harmonies and meditations on complicated, tender love."
- CMJ

"...with lyrics as dense as a Faulkner novel and intricate arrangements that transform the typical Americana twang and faded pastoral preconceptions of folk/pop into something surreal and yet familiar."
- Paste Magazine
Whiskey Folk Ramblers
Whiskey Folk Ramblers
Like the soundtrack to a spaghetti western set in the Dust Bowl, Whiskey Folk Rambler's "folk noir" blends ominous, reverb-dripping guitars with boot-stomping train beats and funereal horns to create sonic backdrops for down-on-your-luck ballads and beer-soaked anthems.

Their music is the sound of a union meeting at its drunkest, of a last-resort robbery gone awry, of mice and men and the lengths they'll go to forget about their troubles. From catchy singalongs to moody shuffles, Whiskey Folk Rambler's sound takes American roots music down a road less traveled, where even the Devil might be waiting to raise a toast. ~ Steve Steward
