“When music is THIS good, it smashes every borderline, every genre, every pre-conceived idea of what a bluegrass hip hop fusion might sound like…it blows live audiences away wherever they play!”
“A daring blend of innovative modern swagger and classic Americana cool, which dares listeners not to come along for the ride!” (Hear Hear Music)
“Gangstagrass’ eclectic mix of low-down to down-low beats destroys other genres in their path!” (Magnet Magazine)
“There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their iPod playlists than you think”, says Rench, mastermind behind the genre breaking sensation GANGSTAGRASS.
When FX Network came to Reach looking for the GANGSTAGRASS sound for the theme song to their new series “Justified”, he had bluegrass players lay down an original track with rapper T.O.N.E-z, the result was “Long Hard Times To Come”, the song that opens every episode of the series, now in its fourth season.
With their third studio album, “Broken Hearts & Stolen Money”, GANGSTAGRASS can be found ripping up stages and blowing minds wherever they appear. Their explosive live performances have garnered a buzz at SXSW, CMJ and on tours across the USA. Now they are coming to Europe (and Portsmouth!) with emcees R-Son and Dolio! beats.
