Carrie Cunningham and the Six Shooters

Carrie Cunningham and the Six Shooters are a Northwest band that remind you of what country music is supposed to be.  Although Cunningham was originally trained in classical and jazz, her music is uncompromisingly country.  A lot of the traditional sound is due to the liberal use of the steele guitar (played by Dale "Captain" Granstrom).  Upbeat songs such as "Hunting Season" and "The Single Life" are evenly balanced with slower ballads, such as "Just Because."  Carrie has received a great deal of local success, as well as international airplay, and keeps up a full schedule of performances.  Definitely keep an eye on this band!

A resource for independent musicians.

Here is a great listing of other music reviewers and places to get your music heard.

The Hundley Brothers Band.

    The Hundley Brothers Band is a duo based in Forest Grove, Oregon that combines country, bluegrass, and gospel music resulting in a distinct folksy sound.  The members, Matt Hundley (guitar, piano, fiddle, and vocals) and Chas Hundley (mandolin, harmonica, and vocals)  almost exclusively play originals, and use close harmonies and the occasional lightning fast guitar riff to deliver a signature sound that either has the audience singing along of stomping their feet to the beat.  They have been shooting up on the Reverb Nation Country charts for Portland, Oregon, going from number 64 to 23 in just a couple of weeks.  Expect to hear more from this band!       The Hundley Brothers Reverb Nation Page
