Bootleggers USA is the first cd from the country Rock duo Bootleggers, and the end result of years of writing and playing. First formed in 1995, the duo of Kent Siebe and Keith Trimm first played in the cover band "Midnight Run" until it's end and then parted ways until they again played in the band "Repeat Offenders."
Always wanting more than to play cover tunes, the two members formed a side project called "Bootleggers" where they wrote original music, recorded and played live. They enjoyed the process and response so much they continued writing until they had over 30 songs and then decided to place the best on a cd for sale.
Kent, the lead singer, guitarist, and drummer (we multi track) writes all the lyrics and melodies, centering his music around his new age hippy ideas and a desire to save the world with love and peace. Keith, the lead, rhythm, bass and keyboardist (remember, we multi track) likes to expand his horizons writing everything from country music to head banging metal.
The songs on this cd are very diverse ranging from the sound of 50's country to the sound of 80's metal with southern rock, country rock and some acoustic sounds mixed in as well.
We did not set out to make a wide ranging diverse cd as it just happened in the writing process. It seemed we would get bored doing the same thing over and over so out popped something new each session.
