Portland, Oregon’s The Beautiful Train Wrecks is a roots rock band that fuses together traditional Americana with the energy and zest of modern rock-n-roll. The group features four members – Lucas Alberg on vocals and guitar, Jeff Koch on guitar, Amanda Breese on bass guitar and vocals, and Tony Howard on drums and vocals– whose diverse musical influences and deep musical experience result in a unique and instantly catchy sound. Featuring two- and three-part harmonies, the melodic lines of lyrics drift in and out of a listener’s ears like the voice of an old familiar friend.
During live performances, the Train Wrecks instantly build a rapport with its audience members, and engage in playful exchanges throughout their shows. Classic storytelling and cleverly crafted lyrics help to keep the rapt attention of listeners and hook fans into coming back for more.
The Beautiful Train Wrecks have released one full-length album (November 2009) and are currently working on a second album to be released in late 2011/early 2012. The band has played all along the West Coast and throughout the Pacific Northwest and has been played on radio stations around the world.
