Surrounders / Bio

Surrounders is a Bluegrass band integrated by Andalusian musicians of diverse musical backgrounds from the city of Seville, Spain. This new project was conceived towards the end of 2010, where Ramón Ramos had previously co-founded bluegrass bands which were pioneers in Andalucía, like The River String Band, Blue Mountain or Grasstones.

With a great variety of acoustic instruments and musical genres we can set in “Americana Music” and roots music, such as Old-time, Bluegrass, Ragtime, Western and Hawaiian swing. This band brings to us a good show of authentic American music of the last century.

Towards the end of the year 2013 they record their first album, "A Better Place". A reflection of social inequalities and injustice in which most of the world lives, and with which the band wants to contribute musically, encouraging people to keep up the fight for our rights for a better world, "a better place".

With the collaboration on the acoustic guitar of Andrés Herrera "Pájaro" on the song All my time; excellent musician and even a better chap, produced by Paco Lamato (Pájaro, Pelo Mono, Lovely Rita, Bikini Red, etc...) and published by Happy Place Records.

Surrounders es una banda integrada por músicos sevillanos de diferentes influencias que nace a finales de 2010, y algunos de sus miembros ya formaron parte de bandas de bluegrass pioneras en Andalucía, como River String Band, Blue Mountain o Grasstones.

Con una gran variedad de instrumentos acústicos, y de géneros músicales que podríamos encuadrar dentro de la “Americana Music” y de la música de raíces (oldtime, bluegrass, ragtime, western y hawaiian swing), esta banda nos ofrece una muestra de la música norteamericana del siglo pasado.

A finales de 2013 graban su primer trabajo, "A better place" una reflexión sobre la injusticia social que vivimos actualmente, y con el que Surrounders quiere aportar su pequeño grano de arena, animando a la gente a mantener la esperanza y a que sigamos peleando por nuestros derechos para que este mundo sea "un lugar mejor".

Este trabajo cuenta con la colaboración a la guitarra (All my time) de Andrés Herrera "Pájaro" , excelente músico y mejor persona. Ha sido producido por Paco Lamato (Pájaro, Bikini Red, etc...) y editado por Happy Place Records.
