Raised by wolves, taught by squirrels, enemy of the owl - Tallgrass sings songs of happiness and sorrow. This trio from Fort Collins brings gravel road vocals, quick-picked guitar, and a rhythm section with stomping ground sound.
Brothers Adam and Austin Morford formed Tallgrass with Matt Skinner in 2011. Living in Iowa City, the three friends played together for nearly a decade as members of the Jensen Connection and the Gglitch. Influenced by old-timey sounds while digging through new-timey notes, Tallgrass writes and performs homemade auditory originals. Three-part harmonies sit with drums, bass, guitars, and banjos on music's front porch- may all the wrong notes be right.
Their first album, God, Sin, Whiskey, and Women, was released in the summer of 2012 and is available on Itunes and Amazon.com. Their next album, Better Than Medicine, is almost done... In the past year they've opened for President Obama in Iowa City and shared the main stage with Melissa Etheridge and Sublime with Rome at the Saturday in the Park music festival in Sioux City, Iowa.
