San Francisco’s Front Country is a 21st-century Americana-inspired string band that blends roots music with progressive bluegrass and techno-electro pop. A promo blurb describes the players as including “a mandolinist with a degree in composition and classical guitar, a guitarist trained in rock and world music, a bassist equally versed in jazz and bluegrass, a violinist with technique that could seamlessly hop between honky-tonk and electro pop, [and] a female lead singer with grit and soul that was also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.” The band’s newest release, Other Love Songs, has been their most successful full-length to date, with multiple spotlights on NPR that helped it debut at number two on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart.
