“There are a lot of great musicians in our town, and we try to catch the White Lightning Boys and the Indiana Boys when we are around. -Breezy Peyton of Reverend Peytons Big Damn Band”

“The Indiana Boys’ debut album, Muddy Boots plays like an Indiana summer – sweet and dreamy, easygoing yet still sharp and astute. I think part of why I relate to artists like the Indiana Boys and why they fit the region so well is that Americana music is like the growing season. Each listen ripens your appreciation like slow growing fruit. You start to pick up on the interplay between the banjo and mandolin, or lyrics like “The rumbling in my stomach said the twinges of regret had begun” start to stand out. The music isn’t complicated, but it’s rich with culture, humor, and adept solos.”

““Everything you do in life has been inspired by something,” Gist said. “We all came from very different backgrounds, and music brought us together. Hearing each others’ stories inspired the songs we play.””

“The music business is multi-faceted and can absorb more work per band than a Sham-wow chamois,” Rainwater said. “It really comes down to making a living at what I enjoy, where I enjoy myself most. There is no telling what the future holds for this band.””

“Traditional music finds new life through young musicians the Indiana Boys and bandleader Kenan Rainwater, performing live in our studio ”
