Cosmic Americana is often used to describe the jangly and ambient atmosphere of Railway Gamblers. Originating on the Southside of Chicago in March 2014, the group has reflected on the inspiration of iconic songwriters and modern-day rock and roll to craft an original sound that relies on thought-provoking lyricism to be the driving force of the music.
Brendan Folliard (singer, primary songwriter, rhythm guitar, harmonica, piano), Matt Fricks (lead electric guitars, acoustic guitars, mandolin), Sean Wilmsen (drums, percussion, backing vocals), and the bass duo of Dan Kane and Joe Sexton make up the core of the group. With the guidance and expertise of top-tier recording engineer, Mike Hagler, their studio albums have received high praise from their United States fan bases and have also commanded the attention of international music media outlets. This has resulted in ever-expanding recognition for their growing discography and highly-attended performances around the Midwest region.
From their influences rooted in folk music to their incorporation of progressive rock, Railway Gamblers continue to generate a sound that may be difficult to identify as one solitary genre; but it's one that is palatable, engaging, and honest.
