GANGSTAGRASS

Best known as the Emmy-nominated makers to the hit FX drama Justified, Gangstagrass is now back with its fourth official album, the aptly-titled, American Music. Released in April 2015, American Music has done what no other Gangstagrass album has done before, charting on Billboard for the first time. Reaching Number 5 on the Bluegrass Charts, American Music debuted on the charts in only its first week of release.

Featuring the radio staples, “Barnburning” and “Ran Dry,” American Music also celebrates the end of Justified with it’s remake of the Emmy-nominated “Long Hard Times To Come.”

“There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their iPod playlists than you think.” says Rench, who had previously made a name for himself as an in-demand Brooklyn country and hip-hop producer and singer/songwriter.

When he shared his first bluegrass/hip-hop experiment, Rench Presents: Gangstagrass for free on the internet, the buzz occurred instantly and unexpectedly. Suddenly, there was a buzz, championing Rench’s unique vision that combined hip-hop MCs with real bluegrass instrumentalists. As a consequence, Rench Presents: Gangstagrass received hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of downloads and Rench would wind up receiving an overflow of appreciation from fans who were enchanted by his Artistry.

When FX Network came to Rench looking for the Gangastagrass sound for the theme song to their new series Justified, he had bluegrass players lay down an original track with T.O.N.E-z, the an MC, and younger brother of early hip-hop legends Special K and T-LaRoc. The resulting track, “Long Hard Times To Come” blew FX away and when the show Justified became a hit with viewers, Rench and T.O.N.E-z received an Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music.”

Gangstagrass has since become a commercial and critical success. It’s music has been celebrated by The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, TV Guide, NPR and more than 50,000 fans who have frolicked to the band’s hundreds of shows and bought the band’s official LPs.
