ENERGIZING THE INDIE WORLD WITH ‘FOLK ROCK YOU CAN DANCE TO,’ NYC CLUB FAVORITE TACOMA NARROWS KICKSTARTS THEIR CAREER WITH A DYNAMIC ACOUSTIC AND ELECTRIC ‘GOOD MOURNING’

While former English teacher Cheney Munson - the chief songwriter, frontman and guitarist for fast-emerging NYC-based indie band Tacoma Narrows (www.tacoma-narrows.com) - cites traditional folk and bluegrass legends like John Prine, Paul Simon, Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe as major influences, the six-piece ensemble’s explosive mix of acoustic and electric energy is an inspiring DIY offshoot of the folk-rock resurgence going on in mainstream pop in the 2010s.

But grooving beyond renowned counterparts like Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers, The Decemberists, Railroad Earth, Hozier, Philip Phillips and The Lumineers, Tacoma Narrows offers their lively Good Mourning – the name of their upcoming debut album – with an intense kick. Munson, band co-founder Will Roble (drums), Jason Theobald (fiddle), Jim Bisbee (bass), Joe Harris (electric guitar) and Jonah Chilton (mandolin and backup vocals) have been electrifying their growing fan base with a fun, freewheeling vibe they call “folk rock you can dance to.”

Evolving out of an acoustic duo formed by fellow Newark, N.J.-based middle school teachers Munson and Roble, Tacoma Narrows cut their teeth and then held court at folk and bluegrass jam nights at Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar and Sunny’s Bar in Brooklyn.

The loyal following they have since cultivated via performances at hotspots like Rockwood Music Hall, The Bowery Electric and Arlene’s Grocery following their successful 2014 Kickstarter campaign, which raised $21,000 to record their ambitious 12-track project at two studios owned by renowned engineer Mark Dann, one in the city and the other up in Woodstock, N.Y.

Tacoma Narrows also trusted their fans to choose the album’s two lead singles, set for release on September 11th at their performance on Rocked Music Hall’s Stage 2, with all proceeds going to the charity Tuesday’s Children.

Tacoma Narrows will be playing upcoming gigs at Arlene’s Grocery (Aug. 15) and Carolina Jubilee, a food and music festival dedicated to sustainable farming at Vanhoy Farms in Harmony, N.C. (Oct. 16-17). They have also scheduled a fall residency at The Bowery Electric in the East Village (Sept. 30, Oct. 6, Oct. 20, and Oct. 27).
