The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit:
Take two Americana singer-songwriters, an indie-rock veteran of a drummer, country-born bassist, and metal-bred pedal steel player, and what do you get: the rough-hewn yet driftwood-smooth; rebel-headed, but heart-of-gold sound of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit. The outfit includes singer-songwriters Chris Doud and Will Taylor, bass and vocals Taylor Webster, drummer Aaron Burtch, master of all lead instruments, Matt Cordano, and newest member Chandler Pratt on Telecaster and Mandolin. Any Outfit member may tell you that it’s plenty just to be at the pinnacle of a local music scene embracing roots and Americana music, but, as one recent convert put it, “the rest of America needs to hear this noise.” Likened to anything from Old Crow Medicine Show and The Avett Bros. to Asleep at the Wheel, Bob Wills and even Neil Young (depending on which live set you happen to catch) they most often defy categorization, usually settling for some hybrid of Americana, folk, rock, bluegrass, and that sweet, old country & western. They describe their efforts as trying to make good, honest, insightful music, that’s not afraid of a good time and a little fun, that people will move their feet to, and that also goes real well with a straight road and a long drive.
