Formed in 2019, Blockhouse Valley quickly gained a reputation for their unique take on popular songs and their ability to connect with audiences of all ages. The band's lineup would make you think of a folk or bluegrass band, but you'll quickly be surprised as these talented musicians start to rock a Michael Jackson or Red Hot Chilli Peppers song.
The band's original music recalls living in the American Rust Belt and the experiences of growing up in the Midwest and Appalachian regions. These roots are the true inspiration for the instrumentation of the band having been heavily influenced by the regional folk and bluegrass sounds while also being exposed to the popular alternative, rock, blues, pop, and country music of the 90s and 00s. Blockhouse Valley isn’t shy to pull from all of these influences in creating their own original songs as heard in their debut self-titled EP.

6. Until Then
"Blockhouse Valley's debut album takes listeners on a journey through the Rust Belt's faded factories, struggling towns, and unyielding heartland. With compelling songwriting and virtuosic musicianship, the band's mix of bluegrass, folk, and Americana draws from tradition while embracing a modern perspective. These are songs for anyone who's ever felt trapped, defeated, or heartbroken - and for those who refuse to give up hope."
