Rocking Horse Rodeo

By assembling the best country voices, musicians, and petty criminals in Boston, Rocking Horse Rodeo now has the ability to get you dancin', cryin', and lyin' all night long. Their debut album Drinkin' Without Thinkin' is out 12/17/2011.

Laura Ganci

In a style best described as a fusion of folk, rock and blues, singer/songwriter Laura Ganci's music offers a unique brand of poetic lyricism. With the weight of the world upon her shoulders, she bears her soul to listeners offering up stories of heartbreak, loss, and reflection.

Laura is currently writing and demoing tracks for a follow-up release which is a more bare-bones and raw collection of recordings, where both her vulnerability and vernacular will take center-stage.
