A four piece Americana band from Louisville, KY. They’ve released two EPs, “Extra Better” in 2013, and then “Light of Day” in 2014.Through relentless touring, they’ve become mainstays of the Midwest Americana scene. In September of 2015, they set ten highway-tested, fine-tuned songs loose in the confines of LA LA Land Studios. The result is “Midwest Heart/Southern Blues”. The new album is a gritty, upbeat collection of songs, full of characters who were developed while staring over the dash of a beat up Ford van cruising through towns in the South and Midwest, whose better days are behind them. The Sawdusters will be on the road in 2016 and beyond. For fans of The Band, Little Feat, and the Turnpike Troubadours.

Her writing is born from fervent ties to both the American condition and tradition, daring to mark a space in the new era of the folksinger.
