The Oly Mountain Boys

The Oly Mountain Boys play bluegrass with high-energy drive and a Pacific Northwest bent, mixing traditional tunes with revolutionary original bluegrass compositions. By combining picking prowess with tight three-part vocal harmonies, the band aims to showcase the power and appeal of a truly American musical form.

This bunch has made a new bluegrass album!

A collaboration was born in 2016 when Nate and Jackie of Daniels and Baker joined the Olympia music community via Chicago, Illinois. Inspired by many of the same classic bluegrass roots, the duo became frequent guests and natural jam buddies with Olympia's resident bluegrass pickers, the Oly Mountain Boys.

The potential to make a dual album, in the spirit of Steve Earle's The Mountain featuring the Del McCoury band, became too enticing to pass up. But touring schedules didn't leave much time. So they all got in the studio and brought these tunes to life in live takes.

The Oly Mountain Boys bring full traditional bluegrass band power. Daniels and Baker bring innovative arranging and sharp vocal harmonies. And everybody picks up a storm. 

Nate and Jackie have traveled on to Nashville, Tennessee now, so we've called in our good friends Ky Burt and The Hollerbodies from Portland to help us release this album at Rhythm & Rye on November 19th! And we'll have it in hand when we head to Seattle on November 30th for a show at the Nectar with Cascade Crescendo and Sourwood Stringband!
