The Lucky Ones CD Release with Darrin Craig, The Junebugs

The Lucky Ones

Country music has assuredly had its fair share of duos, but it has yet to see anything like The Lucky Ones. Born east of the Rockies but bred in the Pacific Northwest, The Lucky Ones have laid claim to Portland, Oregon, and created a sound where country meets everything from rock and bluegrass to R&B and dance--all pressed through a pop filter. Rich and identifiable, the pair's dynamic songwriting moves from breezy, slick cuts like "Country Girls" to reflective ballads like “So Many Words,” without ever forgetting the long southern love affair with the six string. The Lucky Ones effortlessly combine the twosome’s wide-ranging influences into a polished, lively and exciting sound all their own while never taking themselves too seriously.

The Lucky Ones debut album, Waiting For The Rain is scheduled for release on November 9th, 2013. All of the tracks were co-written by Holder and Wheatley and produced by Holder, including the first single "Riding High." The duo went searching for the experimental side of country, and found pop, dance and southern rock, taking country all the way to the West Coast without forgetting its roots.

Some bands look to change your life. The Lucky Ones are looking to change your mood, turn one drink into three, and let Friday night creep into Saturday morning.--

Darrin Craig

Originally hailing from Kansas, Darrin Craig has been a singer and songwriter in the Northwest bluegrass outfit Jackstraw for 13 years. As a founding member of the band, Craig has toured the US and shared bills with bluegrass greats such as Del McCoury and Tim O'Brien. In 2007, he began writing and recording with Portland based Meridian. The Portland Mercury calls Meridian's "booze-soaked country balladry…given heart-aching credence by Craig's ragged voice…a beautiful thing." Darrin Craig can also be seen with The Portland Country Underground.

The Junebugs

Moses Barrett leads a dynamic group of musicians based in the Pacific Northwest dedicated to sweet tunes and good times. The eclectic taste of this group ranges from turn of the century Americana to modern Hip Hop, all with a strong emphasis on vocal harmony and fun times having. If you like old timey music, but also like R. Kelly you'll find a lot to like here.
