For the past decade, Tylor & the Train Robbers have been blazing trails, carving a path through the heartland with their roots country and Americana music. With boots worn thin from relentless touring, they've crisscrossed the country, honing their craft and delivering electrifying performances, leaving a trail of devoted fans in their wake.
Brothers Tylor Ketchum, Jason Bushman, and Tommy Bushman form the core of this musical powerhouse. Tylor, the eldest, takes the reins as the band's frontman, rhythm guitarist, and songwriter, weaving stories through his lyrics.
“Ketchum has a voice laced with the same western gravelly baritones that tend to stand out as “Western” but his approach is decidedly more rock than country, and his delivery still touches on poetic.” - Josh Crutchmer
Jason, on bass and backup harmonies, and Tommy, on drums and vocals, provide the steady heartbeat and backbone that defines the band's signature sound. Completing the quartet is Rider Soran, whose Lead Guitar, Pedal Steel, and Lap Steel chops add layers of depth and emotion to their music.
“Perhaps no band combines what Western roots music has always been and what it will become quite like the Train Robbers. It is this combination of tradition and fresh take that makes them a must-listen.” - Josh Crutchmer
Now, as the band gears up for their latest release, Hum of the Road, the excitement among their devoted fanbase is palpable. Recorded amidst the dust and heat of a Southern tour, this album is more than just a collection of songs—it's a sonic odyssey that captures the essence of the open road and the soul of the American musical landscape.
Hum of the Road was born in Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberley, TX, under the expert guidance of producer Cody Braun from Reckless Kelly and engineer Adam Odor. Mixed in Austin, TX, by the talented Jonathan Tyler, the album flawlessly channels the raw energy and authentic vibes of the band. The result is ten tracks that traverse musical terrains, from rock and roll anthems to country swing, psychedelic explorations, heartfelt folk ballads, and classic county tunes.
With each song, Hum of the Road invites listeners on a musical adventure, echoing the band's own journey down highways and backroads. It's an album that captures the essence of a bygone era while remaining firmly rooted in the present, a testament to the band's timeless appeal and genre-defying approach.
