About The Beautiful Train Wrecks
Portland, Oregon's The Beautiful Train Wrecks boast a five-piece membership with geographically diverse origins; members hail from Kansas, Washington, Arizona, Texas and Maine. The Beautiful Train Wrecks were formed in 2007 by Lucas Alberg (vocals/guitar), Paul DeMichele (drums), and Rick Hedges (bass guitar/vocals), with the aim of playing traditional country music in the vein of Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, and George Jones. When lead players Travis Magrane (guitar) and Joe Root (piano/keyboards) joined the fold, the Train Wrecks' sound diversified beyond their original classic country intentions. The result: each band member's regional musical influences permeate into tuneful songs that can be described alternately as country, roots, alt-country, rock, and folk.
