"Ryan has a rhythm that will move your body, a voice that will touch your soul, and a song that will touch your heart."
Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts bring forth new energy to country music fans who love the heroes and outlaws of old. Influenced by the songs and personalities of legends like Waylon, Willie and Johnny Cash, they drive their sound with blazing guitars, gritty lap steel and a rock n roll attitude. "Modern Outlaw Country" is a term the band coined to describe their music.
Recent highlights include being direct support for Blackberry Smoke, The Marshall Tucker Band, Shakey Graves, Junior Brown, Cody Canada & The Departed, Cash'd Out, The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band and more. The band toured extensively in 2015 and 2016 in support of their sophomore album, "Up From The North." Highlights of the touring include the 75th annual Sturgis Rally where Gilby Clarke, formerly of Guns n Roses, performed on stage with the band, and later at the Ogden Theatre in Denver where Billy Nershi of The String Cheese Incident performed on stage with the band.

AXS interview: Get to know a Denver band: Ryan Chrys and The Rough Cuts
"Chrys's deep vocal delivery recalls Shooter Jennings. Taking cues from outlaw-country pioneers like Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, Chrys and company lay down a collection of fueled-up twangy numbers alongside some heartfelt ballads."- Westword Magazine (Denver's division of Village Voice)
"Ryan Chrys' career as a Colorado musician has mostly been in the background of bands, until the guitar solo. He is a guitarist's guitarist, a country rock ax man. ...he's branched out on his own with A Lick and a Promise, an impressive album of country rock songs.."- The Denver Post
"Love your music - you are like Johnny Cash meets Greg Allman!"- Elizabeth Smith, Events Director, MAIN STREET SQUARE, Rapid City, SD
The Liz Coffman and The Revenue is a rock group based out of Portland, OR. Their energetic sound is a combination of powerfull vocals, rock, elements of soul and is heavily influenced by the blues.
After meeting at jam sessions around Portland, the band had their first rehearsal and the rest was history. With Liz and Reed's backgrounds in jazz, Ben's blues background and Jacob's history playing rock and country, the four of them were able to develop a unique sound that has evolved into who they are today.
