Them Coulee Boys
Them Coulee Boys are known for a brand of Americana that blends punk, bluegrass, and rock & roll. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, and drum provide the pulse that drives their original music. In the Fall of 2019 they released Die Happy (Lo-Hi Records), which was produced by Dave Simonett of Trampled By Turtles. They are currently finishing up their 4th full-length album "Namesake", produced by Grammy Award winner Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Paul Simon, Sufjan Stevens).
Through subsequent national tours with Trampled By Turtles and in conjunction with spots at Americana Fest in Nashville, Blue Ox Music Festival in their hometown, and as part of the Cayamo cruise, the band has gained a large following over the past few years.
On the heels of the album release, they found themselves cracking the Americana charts, receiving accompanying shout-outs from American Songwriter, Bluegrass Situation, and American Roots (UK) who said “There is very little on this tremendous album that is 'simple' or easy to unravel, with excellent lyrics and arrangements that ultimately make every song a mini-cinematic epic. I would be surprised if we hear a more 'complete' album this year.”
They received Artist of the Year, Best Bluegrass/Americana Artist from Wisconsin Area Music Industry, a nod from Folk Alley for Top 50 songs of 2019 - “Find Your Muse”, and Americana Highways Readers Choice Top 100 album of 2019 (#79).
