Lost Bayou Ramblers
Lost Bayou Ramblers was born deep in South Louisiana performing old style, predominantly acoustic Cajun music at clubs and festivals across the US, Europe, and Canada. After years of playing traditional style, the Lost Bayou Ramblers found themselves needing to grow. To create a new sound that combined not just the sounds of their heritage, but all the musical influences they grew up loving. It began with the recording of their new album Mammoth Waltz at Dockside Studios in Maurice, La. The idea was to incorporate more influences, sounds, technology, and stylings with the traditional Cajun instrumentation. The resulting 11 tracks speak for themselves.
By chance and by friendship, a number of talented special guests inspired Lost Bayou Ramblers by bringing their own unique backgrounds to the recordings. The band began experimenting more in their live shows, and their new sound was born. It has developed into a mammoth style that evokes the power of it’s predecessors while reaching for the future; when Lost Bayou Ramblers is at full fervor, even the traditional accordion and fiddle take on new modern dynamics.
Whether you are a rock purist, Cajun purist, or looking for something more adventurous from both genres, Mammoth Waltz delivers.
The Littlest Birds
What began as two friends sitting down to play some music together has turned into a beautiful (and busy) musical endeavor. The warm interplay of clamhammer banjo and bowed cello, the easy blend of voices, and the inspiring original music have been thrilling audiences around the United States.
In 2010, The Littlest Birds traveled 10,000 miles across 10 states playing 35 shows.
In 2011 they followed that up with numerous performances close to home, recorded a second album "Migrations", and booked an even more ambitious tour of the entire United States. From October 1st to December 20th they performed 53 times across 16 states, traveling 15,000 miles.
Their albums are available for download via the MusicStore tab here, purchase directly from their website, or iTunes etc. They are also on Pandora, so try out The Littlest Birds station!
