Details of Apache Relay and the Ticket Luck value
Apache Relay is an American band whose story began when Michael Ford Jr., a music business major, met members of Relay at Belmont University. At the time, the band was playing Americana, roots oriented music. Before long, the band began backing up Michael Ford Jr. on his concerts.
At the time, members of the band included guitarist and vocalist Mike Harris, guitarist, keyboardist and mandolin player Brett Moore and fiddler and keyboardist Kellen Wenrich. In 2009, they released their debut album, titled 1988 and followed it up in 2011 by American Nomad. Today, they can be seen live in concert with Apache Relay tickets.
After the release of their second album, Apache Relay were joined by Michael Ford Jr's brother and soon went on tour, supporting Mumford & Sons. They played at festivals like the Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo, Firefly Music Festival and the Voodoo Music Experience.
The band is now hard at work writing and recording their next album. They are working with producer Kevin Augunas at the famous studio in California once known as Sound City and today as Fairfax Recordings.
Apache Relay are based in Nashville and describe their music as having indie roots. Their current lineup includes Michael Ford Jr., Ben Ford, Mike Harris, Steve Smith, Brett Moore and Kellen Wenrich. They are signed onto Nomadic Records/So Recordings and have released two studio albums so far.
More recently, the band played at the Petunia Festival in Dixon, Illinois. They headlined at shows featuring Steelism, Promised Land Sound and ELEL. The band's second, self-titled studio release features such songs as Katie Queen of Tennessee, Terrible Feeling, Ruby, Growing pains, Don't Leave Me Now, Good As Gold, Dose, Forest For The Trees, Valley Of The Fevers, White Light and Happiest Day Of Your Life. The album saw them move towards a Wall of Sound like style from their previous folk rock centered music.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, the band broke out of their folk rock tag with the song Katie Queen of Tennessee. The magazine also praises the band's music, as well as their performances opening for Mumford & Sons.
The Nashville natives, who opened for Mumford & Sons on the Gentlemen of the Road Tour, have been greatly influenced by Bruce Springsteen. These influences can be heard in their album, American Nomad. Fuse TV praises their music as merging the 'emotional nakedness of Nebraska' with the 'raucous energy of Arcade Fire'.
