About Black Powder County

Formed in early 2012 Black Powder County is entering its second year with a bang! Having opened for Collective Soul, Kansas, and Blue Oyster Cult, the band has literally been there and back musically in that short time, and through dedication and perseverance this explosive group has morphed into a well oiled, fast moving hard rock machine with an incredibly slick sound, the Band has come out of it all as a durable and entertaining rock act in the area. The Band is now in production of their Debut Album due to be available to the public by the end of 2013. It is sure to be an electrifying compilation of their rock roots with its irresistible guitar riffs and life relating lyrics the band has reached new heights, both artistically and commercially, so be watching closely as the wait will soon be over….Are you ready for Black Powder County's explosive sound? “We're all looking for a same thing, and after years of playing the pub/club cover scene with other bands, we each needed to scratch that itch of creating some awesome music, but that meant getting the right group of Musicians too. And that happened when we finally found one another in rather peculiar ways and it was an instant click, like a Black Powder explosion" explains the group's lead guitarist Tim De Quilettes(Decoy) who transplanted here from Australia to emerge himself in the music scene here . "We were looking to get back that same feeling we had when we all first started making music, which was writing and creating our own sound to share, and capturing that elusive feeling of success along the way, and of course the pure joy of making music that people can relate to in one way or another. The idea behind Black Powder County remains a powerful yet simple one. "There is no gimmick here," explains Vocalist Jake Strasheim. "We set out to create music that we enjoy and can feel proud of playing music that artists we like would want to listen to, along with the people that want to see Rock revived. We don’t want to be tagged as a copycat or try to want to keep up with the Joneses or about conforming to somebody else’s ideas of how we should be. That's when you can lose focus. So we've just done what we feel is right, and tried to have a great time doing it." Black Powder County’s sound is defiantly forward-looking and truly fresh in all senses of that word. "Our music is very aggressive, and in your face right out of the gate" says Bass guitarist Manny Narkrong. "There's always that hard face slapping, wake up and listen element to it, and this band is the first dangerous band that's been around in quite a while”. "We were like a bunch of guys who got together one day and were able to play an assortment of songs with no practice and have it sound awesome. That's what it's been like every time we've done something together. We're stoked, like 'Cool, we wrote a song!' 'Wow, we played a gig!' Maybe that's why this has worked because we love to play and have a feel for it all in a naturally cohesive way! Their soon to be released Debut album is a rock & roll eulogy with a natural raw feel and a sonic edginess. It's a Hard Rock rebirth for a new generation, reflecting the bands influences. Drummer Josh Betschart states," For us the album we are making has to encapsulate the energy & growl just like we have when we play together live." Black Powder County is not just all about having fast paced riveting rock tunes, there is definitely room for some ballads for the Ladies too. Vocalist Jake Strasheim states, "The songwriting for the band has taken on a life of its own, as the structures of the songs themselves keep morphing and growing so much from collaboration and creative input from everyone in the band. We have accomplished so much and can use the things we picked up musically to keep the band a well oiled music machine.” Follow the trail of Black Powder as it ignites and blows some Hard Rock right in your face!
