"Free Range Folk refers to their lively blend of americana and bluegrass as “roots dirt rock”. While I only have a vague idea of what that might mean, I do know that their music is bursting at the seams with heart and soul." - Chad Snyder WXPN Philadelphia
With songs like "Manifest Destiny," "Corn Song," "Superfund" and "Stoney Lonesome," the band gives voice to outrage felt by people across the country while drawing attention to the absurdity of racism, corporate/industrial food politics, environmental degradation, and challenges to civil liberties. Songs like "Lazy Days," "Rest Stop," "Thank You," and "Impending Doom" impart a more intimate feeling that hits home and touches the part of us all that longs to feel connection, companionship and reconciliation.
For its third album, Impending Doom, Free Range Folk worked with producer Todd Schied (Our Griffins, Steve Kimmock) and recorded at Red Rock Studio in Saylorsburg, PA (Leon Redbone, The Wailin' Jennys) and we're very proud of the work. The album cover was custom designed by Oregon-based graphic artist Michael Ericson and handmade by Jim Thorpe's own Somersault Letterpress. Order a hard copy here: Impending Doom
