THE CORDUROY ROAD
Like any road, a band goes through curves and changes, ups and downs, but ultimately will reach a destination. Such is The Corduroy Road.Although the exact destination may not be certain, the band members have a good idea of what it is they are looking for:simple and candid roots music.This is where the band feels the most at home…playing that music onstage, and making people smile.
“Fans of anything from country to bluegrass to folk rock will especially enjoy The Corduroy Road’s notoriously lively shows.” says Flagpole Magazine.
Comprised of Drew Carman (vocals, banjo, guitar, harmonica), Elijah NeeSmith (vocals, bass), Matt Dyson (banjo, guitar), Garrett Chism (drums), and Russel McCumber (fiddle) the band has been touring in some form and capacity since 2006.
In November of 2008, The Corduroy Road entered the studio of local legend John Keane (Widespread Panic, REM, BR549, Uncle Tupelo) to record their debut LP, Love Is a War, released in Summer 2009.After an exciting and fruitful year, the band release Live at the 40Watt in 2010 as their first live album. It captured the raw live energy that the band has become know for.
Soon thereafter, the band decided to take a hiatus from touring in late 2010 and went through a few line-up changes… but now The Corduroy Road is back at it again, with a slew of new material, an aggressive tour schedule and that same down home sound.
