We are thrilled to be a part of the newest ad campaign for Wyoming: That’s WY! The Office of Tourism wanted to know just WY we had chosen Wyoming and what made the state so special to us and our music.
WY AM I HERE? SCREEN DOOR PORCH ON WYOMING’S MUSIC SCENE
Every setting has a sound – a unique energy that vibrates through the streets and whistles in the trees. So what’s the song of the Grand Tetons? What tunes do Wyoming’s rivers and historic western towns inspire? The band members of Screen Door Porch seem to have it figured out.
The local group has become a well-known act, touring the country with their Americana, roots-rock, country-blues sound. Their music is reminiscent of a laid-back, bourbon-laced evening on a porch tucked somewhere in the mountains. (It’s no question the band’s moniker was a fitting choice.) Their gritty sound is unique, but not so niche that influential ears haven’t taken notice. In fact, the group’s first two albums were both included on eight international “Best Albums of the Year” lists. With notable recognition and a growing fan base, you’d expect the Wyoming band to be packing up for a move to the major music cities, right? Wrong.
