Renegade Americana, Anglo-American Roots. It’s hard to pin down the compelling, distinctive high energy music of The Long Road. It’s a swampy brew of styles mixed from both sides of the ocean, characterised by sharp lyrics, great melodies and the fab sound of acoustic instruments being played with passion and purpose. It’s a kind of music that appeals to the renegade and outlaw in us all. This is a podcast about our music as the band, our writing, stories, anecdotes, interesting people we meet along the way, and who knows what else!
