With their new and third studio album, Broken Hearts & Stolen Money – Gangstagrass can be found ripping up stages and blowing minds wherever they appear. The explosive live performance has garnered a buzz at SXSW, CMJ, and on tours across the USA. Now they are coming to Europe with emcees R-Son and Dolio!
‘There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their ipod playlists than you think.’ says Rench, mastermind behind the genre breaking sensation Gangstagrass.
When FX Network came to Rench looking for the Gangstagrass sound for the theme song to their new series Justified, he had bluegrass players lay down an original track with rapper T.O.N.E-z, the result was Long Hard Times To Come, the song that opens every episode of the series, now in its fourth season.
‘A mixture of bluegrass and hip-hop that might repel some purists on either side of the country-and- rap divide, but will knock the socks off just about everybody else.’

‘Gangstagrass eclectic mix of low-down to down-low beats destroys other genres in their path.‘
