Hailed by "The Santa Fe Reporter" as "one of New Mexico's most exciting acts", Bone Orchard captures both the darkness and allure of the American Mythos. Their music is a journey down the route 66 of legend as it might have been had it started in rural Appalachia and detoured through the wild streets of Deadwood. Drawing from traditional Appalachian influences, as well as 20th Century post-punk, Bone Orchard blends acoustic and electric guitars, banjo and mandolin to create a cinematic original sound of haunted beauty and purity, much like the wind swept mesas and wide blue skies of their hometown of Taos, New Mexico. Their songs are at turns rollicking and mournful, gentle and violent, exhibiting rich vocal harmonies that soothe, all the while spinning dark and desperate tales that make you shiver. Bone Orchard concocts a delicious musical brew you'll want to gulp down.... intoxicating and a little dangerous.
