Tumble Rye / Bio

From the roots of the Portland breed alternative jam band, Rusty Starz, grew the members of the Tumble Rye. Tumble Rye has a stripped down alterna-grass americana rock that spans the sound of Wilco to traditional bluegrass, morphing into original roots rock. Tumble Rye is formed by four fellows from Portland OR with tradition in jam band rock to alternative rock to traditional bluegrass....always looking to experiment and grow on the sound to make you sit up, listen and shake it! Instrumentation expounds to resonator guitars, banjo, washtub bass, mandolin, congas, bongos, harmonica, acoustic guitars....there is never a dull moment working these instruments on a single mic setup!!! The instrumentation is balanced by throaty vocal harmonies and the entire band singing in time....a variety of tones and textures for all styles and temperaments....the flavor has you singing through the night.
