Last of the Easy Riders
While Last of the Easy Riders formed last summer in Denver, the band of sonic nomads each converged high in the Rocky Mountains individually from various parts of the country. Even with dissimilar backgrounds, each of the musicians shared one common vision: to create cosmic rock 'n' roll. The outcome is the band's naturally formulated blend of raw Midwestern treble and passionate deep south rhythm and bass. Much like their iconic heroes in bygone country rock outfits like The Byrds and The Band, each member contributes to the song writing process. The earthy, inspired track list projects the tranquility of the outdoors, or perhaps hazily driving through Joshua Tree National Park with the windows down, while a CCR cassette warmly hums in the background.
