Americana covers a broad spectrum of music these days, and it’s easy to get lost in trying to define its particular parameters. However, if one was to determine an overreaching definition, then it’s best to describe it as music that reverberates with heart-felt emotion, songs that come from the soul and speak to the listener with honesty, conviction and integrity.



If that’s the case -- and indeed, it should be -- then The Two Tracks, a band based out of Sheridan Wyoming clearly fits the bill. Their forthcoming album, Postcard Town (self-release, May 19) further affirms the promise and determination shown on their eponymous debut, which No Depression described as “creating an instant connection...in truth there’s not a single offering here that doesn’t engage the listener practically from the get go," and by The Alternate Root as “rural warmth...infusing their tunes with a feel for the open spaces of The West.”
Postcard Town continues this trajectory and confirms, both in songwriting and delivery, that this enticing new ensemble has something special to offer. No Depression writes: "There is just enough twang in the music to make it country, and just enough rock to make it interesting. Lay the voices of Szewc and Huebner on top and it is a musical banana split of consequence...the harmonies neither too strong nor too light but just right."



Produced by the legendary Will Kimbrough, with eleven new tracks performed by the band -- Julie Szewc (guitar/vocals), David Huebner (cello, electric guitar, and vocals), Fred Serna (drums/percussion), and Russell Smith (upright bass), the combination of these remarkable talents has yielded an album that is brimming with depth and emotion.



From rock to country, bluegrass to folk, the music helps define the sound of superbly crafted, fully assertive Americana. Their harmony-rich songs often add cello to a solid groove, creating a unique ambiance that’s all their own. Throw in a journeyman’s attitude and a penchant for affecting storytelling, and here again, The Two Tracks create a sound that typifies a style birthed in the heartland, with all the sentiment and sensitivity that does justice to that timeless sound.



"Vibrant harmonies and a knack for writing eager, infectious melodies guarantee them an ability to lock on to their listeners without any hesitation whatsoever...The Two Tracks' music serves as a reminder that the ability to tap tradition can pay off with a sound that's still contemporary in its delivery and insightful in its conception." - Country Standard Time
