Simpler Times

by Rock Creek Jug Band

Debut album from Rock Creek Jug Band. Equally inspired by 1920's & 30's folk and blues as well as early rock & roll and punk. From the raspy growls of Tom Waits, to the vivid story telling of Guthrie, and the lonesome sound of early American folk.
Genre: Folk: Jug Band

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Debut album from Rock Creek Jug Band, Simpler Times is a tribute to the band’s musical foundation and a push forward to break new grounds in the folk genre. The album features various instruments including acoustic guitar, fiddle, guitjo, upright bass, kazoo, washboard and harmonica. The album is a melting pot of appalachian folk, delta blues, and barn burning country songs all with a common goal; to tell a story. What makes Simpler Times unique is the different voices of the album. Rip’s growling vocals and stories of outlaws, gypsies, and ramblers, has garnered comparisons to Tom Waits. Ol’ Tone’s authentic high lonesome vocals and witty humor will have you on your feet dancing and singing along. Rustwater’s dust covered bellows tells tales of the hardworking, hard beaten, and hardly noticed American heroes and villains. Texas’ melodious fiddle and rustic washboard provides a common backbone to each singers unique style while ripping up horse hairs and throwing thimbles. With standout tracks like "Gypsies," “Life and Death of a Coal Miner,” and “Box of Bones,” Simpler Times is sure to have you dancing, but if you listen carefully, you will hear unforgettable stories about those good old simpler times.
