Appropriately described as “Bastard Americana” and “Psychedelic Folk”, the four piece blends a variety of musical genres to create a remarkably unique sound. Traveling Broke’s original songs reflect stories of social justice, sustainability, freedom, family, and love. Soulful vocals and diverse instrumental enthusiasm match the powerful lyrics in a magical display to behold. Traveling Broke and Out of Gas keeps pushing the boundaries of folk and refuses to dwell in the comfortable, well-tread territory. The band shines during their energy filled live performances during which the members of the band will often trade or switch instruments, leading the audience on a journey of varying sounds and feelings from song to song. “Folky and tribal, a gypsy dance with a quivering guitar part and a deep rhythmic pulse that flares up and falls like fanning a flame, rushing like a river through a valley of instrumentation.” – Murfreesboro Pulse www.TravelingBroke.com www.Soundcloud.com/Traveling-Broke www.reverbnation.com/travelingbrokeandoutofgasSave

“Playing a folk/indie rock/country/bluegrass hybrid dubbed “Bastard Americana,” the quartet’s most recent of three full-length releases, Till the Days Return, is 14 tracks of innovative indie folk with a heavy Appalachian influence. Rachael Yanni’s sterling vocals are unpretentious, sweet but not overly feminine, and pair nicely with her washboard and ukulele, along with husband/musical partner Cody Hall’s detailed lyrics, vocals, percussion and guitar, Davide Marzoli’s bass and vocal contributions, and Maxx Heathcote on lead guitar—though all band members frequently trade off instruments. The songs are involving, evocative, beautiful and textured. “Run for Your Lives” is driven by a distinct bass line that sets a tone both playful and intense, while “Cactus Smoke” is folky and tribal, a gypsy dance with a quivering guitar part and a deep rhythmic pulse that flares up and falls like fanning a flame, rushing like a river through a valley of instrumentation.”
