The Rough & Tumble
The Rough & Tumble
Formerly from Nashville, The Rough & Tumble now find themselves living full time on the road, in a 16ft camper with an 85 lb puppy named Puddle. If you ask Mallory Graham or Scott Tyler how their lives ended up this way they’ll likely respond, “with careful planning, spreadsheets and shoddy cell phone service.”

On their new album, We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know (February 2018), the Americana duo retrace their mileage back to their footsteps and explore the struggle between going home and being home already when there's no other home and everywhere is home. The R&T know how the tread wears down on the tires when you play 140 shows a year cross-country. They’re willing to stop, should the music run out of them and the road end, but until then, they are likely cross referencing a spreadsheet to play your town.

Patrick Dethlefs' songwriting crests like a humble Townes Van Zandt, innocent of his own haunting melodies and lyricism. Dethlefs' new release Fall and Rise offers folk Americana with effortless sincerity at a time when many acts strive purposefully to revive the stripped-down feel of a musical history long past.

Now only in his early 20s, Patrick won the Best Teen Songwriter Award (2009) at Swallow Hill Music—one of the largest non-profit organizations in the U.S. dedicated to developing folk and acoustic music. Patrick also received Best Song and Best Performance.

Perhaps the innate nostalgia embedded in Patrick's music takes root in the age at which he began playing. Inspired by his father who he lost when he was young, Patrick first picked up a guitar when he was 12. Also a musician, Patrick's father leaves a crescendoing legacy through his son who is not only humble, but humbling, through his unassuming creative presence.

He has opened several engagements for Nathaniel Rateliff, played and recorded with members of Paper Bird. Patrick has also shared the stage with notables Gregory Alan Isakov, Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band), Sarah Anderson (Paper Bird), Mountain Man, and Horse Feathers.

Fall and Rise follows impressive reception of 2010′s Stays the Same and Patrick's split release with the Eye and the Arrow: "Dethlefs' songs show maturity beyond his years"(Matt Pusatory, Onion A/V Club Denver Boulder).
