The familial vocal harmonies and gentle string arrangements of Run Boy Run's Something to Someone make it a lovely autumnal bluegrass experience.
The Tuscon, Arizona collective called Run Boy Run is a real family affair. Comprised of brother sister Matt Rolland (fiddle, guitar) and Grace Rolland (cello, vocals), sisters Bekah Sandoval Rolland (fiddle, vocals) and Jen Sandoval (mandolin, vocals), and Jesse Allen (bass), the band's take on the classic bluegrass instrumental lineup is a delicate and tender thing. The group's latest album, Something to Someone, is perfectly positioned for its end of October release, as the mood evoked by the music is spot-on for the autumn season.
Something to Someone was made after a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, which found the band raise almost twice its asking goal.
Something to Someone is out on October 28th.
