ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes


Founded in 2009, Austin-based Sour Bridges is a band that has turned into a tight-knit family. Established early on as a mainstay in Austin’s finest venues, the band has branched out in recent years to earn substantial airplay in the region and play roots music festivals UTOPiAfest, CMJ Music Marathon, SXSW, Daytrotter and more.

Self-dubbed browngrass – think bluegrass on steroids – Sour Bridges is inspired by greats like Gram Parsons, The Band and The Byrds. The funky, rock-inspired group’s distinct sound starts with a steady drumbeat, layers on bluegrass instrumentation – banjo, guitar, bass, and fiddle – and tops off with electric guitar, keys, boots, and impressive harmonies.

Hailing from as far away as Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and other parts of Texas, members include Bill Pucci (vocals, banjo, guitar), Matt Pucci (vocals, mandolin, lead guitar), Kat “Mama Kat” Wilkes (fiddle), Dalton Chamblee (drums) and Jack Bridges (vocals, bass guitar)

“We all met on the frets in Austin, Texas,” summed Honesdale, Pennsylvania-native and founding member Bill Pucci, who moved to the music mecca in 2007 along with brother Matt. The two grew up picking bluegrass style with family, including a grandfather who played and built banjos.

Sour Bridges celebrates its third studio release, Sour Bridges (May 12, 2015). Produced at Austin’s Church House Studios, Bridges includes original songs – largely by Bill Pucci – that reflect on heartaches and hard times (“Dirt Poor”), greener pastures (“Fine Life,”) and picking yourself up again (“Carry On”). Previous albums include Catfish Charlie (2013) and the group's 2010 debut, Workin’ On Leavin'.

In its music and its live shows, Sour Bridges members’ genuine love for playing and singing together comes through loud and clear. A college radio station, KTSW 89.9 compared the band to “your quirkiest, cutest, most musical talented friends showing up on your front porch to play some music.”
