Thirty Spokes is a roots rock band based in Louisville, KY. Formed in 2008, they are a hard working outfit that isn’t afraid of a long drive or late nights. Fans have enjoyed the energetic, live atmosphere of the band in regional venues throughout the midwest and southeast. The stage seems to be where they flourish by combining different sounds and genres to create their original musical experience. They capture the soul of the audience and create an energetic atmosphere. The band gigs constantly and when they aren’t on stage, chances are you will find them in the studio. Thirty Spokes truly digs what they do, are in it for the right reasons, and have a bright future ahead.
The band has three releases to their credit; 72 Hours (2009), Muses and Excuses (2010), and Roll The Dice (2012). All were recorded, engineered, and co-produced by Kevin Ratterman at “The Funeral Home” recording studio. Each release has been well received with generous airplay on the radio as well as the internet.
