Outlaw Alt-Folk group Tejon Street Corner Thieves hails from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, bringing new energy to the Bluegrass genre by mingling darker subjects and tones with depth-driven lyricism and performative musicianship.
The musicians behind Tejon have been playing together since 2013, where they gained momentum in the local Colorado scene with accolades and press coverage around the state. The band eventually caught the eye of Banjo-attacking murder folk troubadour Amigo The Devil and signed to his recently-launched record label Liars Club.
Over the past few years, Tejon has grown out of their local acclaim, becoming a national voice amongst the Bluegrass community for both their unique sound and charming antics. Following the COVID-19 shutdown, Tejon got extensive news coverage when the band took to the road (on a school bus), performing their music for fans from a safe distance. Their ingenuity brought in a stream of new fans, propelling their music mainstream.
Soren Staff and Beau Janke—co-founders of folk/rock/Americana outfit Them Coulee Boys—met as camp counselors in northern Wisconsin in 2011. Their weekend workshopping of Avett Brothers tunes led to original songs and adding Soren's brother Jens on mandolin. As the years grew, the band turned into a more rollicking outfit, adding Neil Krause on electric bass and Stas Hable on drums.
The band's name is a nod to the glacial melt-carved river valleys they call home, known by early French fur trappers as coulees. 2023 marks the 10th year since launching themselves during a now legendary apple farm hootenanny. Known for wild swings of emotion during sets, it is not unusual to see fans in tears and minutes later dancing with abandon. The honesty and ability to talk and sing about the feelings and emotions that shape them has endeared them to a growing group of fans and friends.
