The Robber Barons took the alt-country community by surprise with their 2004 debut CD, Dragging The River. With the release of the follow up, Kerosene Communion, they've made the leap from roots rock upstarts to one of the most sincere and promising Americana tinged bands in the country. The band delivers well crafted songs formed by a rich and organic sound with lyrics well suited for these troubled times. Top notch production from Michael Wilson (Paula Frazer) fully captures the dark honesty and haunted desperation of those forsaken by the American dream. With Kerosene Communion, The Robber Barons deliver a collection of songs that is at the same time immediate and timeless.
