Years ago Bela Fleck turned bluegrass music on its head with his band New Grass Revival; Them Coulee Boys have done it again for Americana and folk-grass music with their latest album “Namesake” when they perform songs in their Americana style but using electronic instruments.
The 10 song album is the band’s fifth release – after three full length albums and an EP. When the pandemic hit and the world locked down, the band gathered in their rehearsal space and began writing. The result is “Namesake”.
Believing that music is the ultimate healer, Them Coulee Boys members until August 10 are donating the proceeds from “Phil’s Song” to the suicide prevention organization Just Live, Inc. Soren Staff and Beau Janke penned the song after the death of friend Phil Marks in 2019.
