The Railbenders
The Railbenders
They've been called "country," "alt-country," and "outlaw country,"
but the phrase that might best describe the Railbenders is "hard
country." This Denver, Colorado band has been playing unabashed,
straight-no-chaser music that pulls no punches since 2000. Their music
and dynamic live shows have made them one of the top draws in
Colorado, bringing in a diverse fan base of all ages.

Formed by Jim Dalton (vocals, guitar) and Tyson Murray (upright bass),
the Railbenders took a mutual love of Johnny Cash, Waylon, Hank
Williams, rock 'n' roll, punk, whiskey, and threw it all together to
create their own sound. Powered by the steady rolling' drums of Graham
Haworth and the blazing guitar picking of Tony Nascar ("The Fastest
Guitar in the West"), the band has garnered local awards, including
"Top Country Band" by the Rocky Mountain News (2004 & 2005), and "Best
Country/Roots Band" five years in a row (2002 to 2006) in the annual
Westword Music Showcase.

The Railbenders have opened for country greats Willie Nelson, Dwight
Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, and David Allan Coe. As well, they've shared
bills with rock legends like ZZ Top, John Fogerty, Peter Frampton, the
Doobie Brothers and .38 Special. The Railbenders won a multi-year
sponsorship from Coors Brewing Company in 2004, and in 2007, they had
the honor of performing at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in
Indio, CA, where they opened a stage that featured Emmylou Harris,
Kris Kristofferson, Junior Brown, John Doe, Drive-By Truckers, and
Alejandro Escovedo. And in 2008, the band played in the inaugural year
of the Mile High Music Festival in Denver, sharing the spotlight with
national headliners like the Dave Matthews Band and Tom Petty & the
Hillbilly Hellcats
