“Gangstagrass fuses string instruments with hip-hop artists, resulting in arguably the best argument yet for a rap and country music marriage.”
Rolling Stone Magazine, May 2017
Best known as the Emmy-nominated makers of “Long Hard Times to Come,” the theme song to the hit FX drama, Justified, Gangstagrass is back with a new live album “Pocket Full of Fire” featuring its original Emmy-nominated blend of bluegrass/hip-hop. Performed real hip-hop MCs, real bluegrass instrumentalists and produced by lead singer/ guitarist Rench, “Pocket Full of Fire” is the follow-up to 2015’s billboard charting album “American Music” and peaked at #2 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts, having charted for more than 15 weeks in 2019. “Pocket Full of Fire” contains 12 cuts of both original and traditional music with a twist and solidifies Gangstagrass’ reputation as one of the must-see live acts in the country.
As the late Elmore Leonard put it “Rench and his friends have done nothing short of creating a new form of music.”
