Them Coulee Boys is an Americana band out of Wisconsin that's starting to make some bigger waves. Formed in Eau Claire in 2013, this band named after a geographical feature prominent in Wisconsin's Driftless Area blends bluegrass, rock, and punk. Unusual, perhaps? Yes, but tha's one of the things that makes them interesting.
While Them Coulee Boys are still getting familiar to audiences across the country, they've established a big following the Midwest already, have played some larger festivals, opened for John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival, and just released their third album - called "Die Happy" - that they produced with Dave Simonett of Trampled By Turtles, another band they've played with.
Eric talks with Soren Staff, lead singer of Them Coulee Boys, about their new album, growing within the music industry, and their new tour - their biggest yet. It kicks off in Milwaukee at Turner Hall Ballroom August 30th, heads to Madison's Great Midwestern Hootenanny at High Noon Saloon Sunday September 1st, and then moves on to destinations from Michigan's U.P. and Minneapolis to Nashville, Asheville, and East Coast destinations. Find out how they got their name, how they formed at summer camp, what they're doing differently with this album, and more in the latest EricCast!
