Album Notes
In The Place of Dead Roads, Banjo Bones carves out landscapes that can best be compared to Death Valley, California. A treacherous, beautiful and wild adventure full of colorful derelicts and themes evoking a rugged life that occurs sometimes by chance and others by choice. Partially inspired by the book by William S. Burroughs of the same title, The Place of Dead Roads is just as untamable as the book. Says Banjo Bones: “There is a humbling experience in facing the freaky extremes of nature, and there is no greater helplessness than standing alone in the middle of Death Valley. My goal in writing this record was to try to capture the vulnerability of the human condition, something William Burroughs chose to do with bravado in his larger-than-life anti-heroes.”

Banjo Bones loaded his musical palate with representative elements of all roots-based music, making The Place of Dead Roads ultimately hard to categorize but easy to enjoy. So sit back, close your eyes and enjoy the ride.
