From the rural town of Duvall, Washington comes the voice of an honest soul. A 25 year old believer in the universal language of music that spills his heart into every word. With lyrical roots in country and folk, and an unmistakably unique vocal style, Austin Jenckes is by definition a singer/songwriter. He has spent the better half of a decade paving his own way; starting with small local followings in sleepy coastal towns around the pacific northwest. In January of 2012, he moved from Washington State to Nashville, Tennessee where he recorded an independently released EP titled "An American Story".

Cody Beebe and Blake Noble have been no secret to the Pacific Northwest music scene. Beebe, a Washington State resident and front man of Cody Beebe & the Crooks, has toured extensively, nationally and internationally, developing a die-hard following of their Northwest rock influenced, Americana sound. Australian born Noble was an instrumental breath of fresh air when he arrived in Seattle in 2012. Also an accomplished touring musician, his distinctive percussive guitar and skilled didgeridoo blended with American folk, blues and funk caught the attention of waves of new fans, as well as Cody Beebe.

When the two were billed to play Chinook Music Festival in 2013, with both their independent projects in full swing (Noble slated to tour France in 2014 and Beebe developing plans to tour Europe in early 2015), they began toying with the idea of writing together. What began as a simple collaboration, based on the mutual respect between Beebe and Noble for each other's unique talents, gave way to Rust on the Rails. A full band whose music is based on the common thread of the Roots-Rock sound which ran through both their independent careers.

The debut EP from Rust on the Rails, November Sky, released in October 2014 showcased the soulful, Americana Rock vocals of Beebe and the unrivaled, intricate percussive guitar and didgeridoo of Noble, punctuated by an exceptional rhythm section and the violin virtuosity of Tim Snider. Brandon Taylor of Seattle Music Insider said of their sound, "something new made familiar; something complicated made simple – their sound blending world music [and] 90s rock behind complexions of blues, folk [and] funk. The result is uniquely intuitive." Their approachable complexity took flight and the (super)-group has found themselves sharing the stage with Sturgill Simpson and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real as well as billing alongside Mumford & Sons, Dawes and Foo Fighters at Gentlemen of the Road (Walla Walla). The collaboration has proved worthy of attention and leaves one hopefully anticipating what will come next from Rust on the Rails.

The diversity of talent and singularity of soul this group exhibits is something Seattle needs to know about. Each member has demands elsewhere, making concerts and appearances in Seattle limited. Translation: try to catch a performance by Rust on the Rails.
